What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Hi… my name is Baloo and I desperately need your help.

So, please take a couple of minutes to read my story, as it took me a very long time to write it!!!

Unfortunately, I have short ulna syndrome, which means that I have faulty bone growth in both my front legs. However, I don’t let this get me down. I am still healthy, extremely friendly, very active and according to my carer, sometimes a bit mischievous!!!

Although I am only 20 months old, I have had several operations to help straighten and strengthen my bones and apparently, I will need a few more.

Everyone says that I am very brave and doing really well but I know that all the care and medical fees are draining the resources of the amazing Garbo’s German Shepherd Dog Rescue (GGSDR)

This is why I have created this page as I think and hope that you might want to help me.

Some nice people have offered to hold a raffle to raise some funds at the Littlewick Show, Bottle Meadow, Knowl Hill, Berkshire. RG10 9YJ on Monday 27th August 2018 but we need to sell as many tickets as possible. Tickets are £1 each and there are numerous prizes to be won, ranging from free tickets to various tourist attractions, a signed book by the famous dog trainer Robert Alleyne (Dog Borstal), a baby or pet photo shoot, a huge cuddly lion, M&S vouchers and many more! The raffle will be drawn at the end of the show on Monday 27th August 2018.

If you are kind enough to buy a ticket / tickets, a copy of the ticket(s) will be emailed to you and all winning ticket numbers will be posted on this page. If you are lucky enough to win, you will be notified of your prize via email. So please remember to "opt in" to share your email address with me.

You may not be interested in the raffle and may just want to make a donation instead? This of course will be extremely appreciated and you will get a special mention in the GGSDR Quarterly Newsletter.

Alternatively, you may wish to subscribe to the GGSDR Quarterly Newsletter. This is packed full of useful information about all dogs and is only £12 for the whole year. Or you may wish to sponsor a dog, kennel or foster place? For further information, take a look on the website

You may also wish to help GGSDR raise funds for free whenever you shop online by using Easyfundraising. This is a brilliant way to raise money at no extra cost to yourselves. Shop online from over 2,700 retailers and they'll give a donation every time you spend. Just click on the link and select Garbo's GSD Rescue as the charity you wish to support

Remember, German Shepherd Dogs play a part in everyone's lives. Whether it be as a loyal, loving family pet or by keeping EVERYONE safe as a Military or Police dog. So please find it in your hearts to be kind enough to support this magnificent cause, it really will be appreciated.

Love and Woofs

Baloo & Anne

Hi... my name is Anne and the story of Baloo really touched my heart. I know that there are so many deserving causes and unfortunately, we can't support them all. However, if everyone that reads this could donate just £1, we would be well on our way to achieving our target.
