Weʼre raising £1,300 to Fund the treatment and travel expenses for Bella and Rafa to make it to UK Foster Homes
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 page is to raise money to bring these two dogs to the UK to the safty of foster homes. With the hope that they will then find their way to loving permanent homes.
Why these two when there are so many that needs help? These two have a story that has now become close to my heart. Bella was due to come to the UK, but unfortunately, due to her overwhelming fear of people, on the day before her travel, during final checks, she tried to escape and broke her leg, dashing her chances. Desperate not to lose the place already booked for her, the Charity asked me if I would take a dog to Foster (this way at least one dog made it out of the country), I agreed, and 5 days later Wren arrived with us. Those who know the story will know that we then ended up adopting Wren who lives a very happy life with us. But Bella remains in Romania, although her leg has now healed, her mental health has taken a huge hit from being away from other dogs and having no socialisation. Bella has now returned to the shelter to try the long hard road of regaining her mental health to a level that she can travel. This will take intensive one on one work to achieve.
The 2nd Dog is Rafa, this boy is the boy I fell in love with on the site, he is in fact the one I was considering adopting, but due to changes in circumstance and the unexpected arrival of Wren - and the subsequent falling in love with said dog, Rafa now remains in Romania. I cannot with a clear conscience fund raise to get a dog out of that country without making sure that he is safe too.
Now I ask for your help, I have never asked before and have always helped other in the past. Please please, help me raise the money to get these guys to safety.
