£1,340raised of £2,000 target by 93 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,340 to raise funds for Dogs on the Streets - via our raffle where you could win a bespoke portrait of your beloved pet

    Funded on Wednesday, 9th August 2017

    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.


    This is Ty. He lives on the streets with his homeless human companion. Luckily he is one of many who benefit from Dogs on the Streets (DOTS), a pop-up service that offers rough sleepers the chance to give their beloved pets free veterinary check-ups, food, training advice and grooming one day a week. From worming and microchipping to major surgery; DOTS is proving essential to the dogs and their homeless owners but it needs funds.

    I want to raise money to help this very important service so I’m giving away a bespoke pet portrait (worth £500) to a lucky winner. All you need to do is donate to this page to enter my online raffle. Tickets are £5 each, so please donate in multiples of £5 if you want to buy more than one ticket. All the money raised will go to DOTS.

    Once your donation has gone through, please tick the box alongside “I'm happy to be contacted by Sara Abbott". Justgiving can then share your contact details with me AS I WILL NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN :-)

    Full details on how the raffle is being run are outlined below in the messages of support section added by me. And don’t forget to visit www.dotslondon.co.uk for more about this ground-breaking work.

    The doggies, DOTS and I thank you for your support,

    Love Sara Abbott, fundraising for Dogs on the Streets

      Only three days to go!! As these things are wont to do we've slowed down a bit but I'm hoping for a last minuet rush on ticket sales - each £5 donated means a chance to win an oil on canvas portrait of YOUR DOG worth £490 and every penny goes to help dogs living on the streets. A million thanks if you've donated already, but I want to ask if you'd do one last share with me to see if we can push ourselves nearer our £2k target. Good luck everyone and thank you - can't wait to get in touch with the winner in a few days time! Sara xxx
