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.
Hello, We are trying to raise money to help give our dog a new hip.
Buster is a Jack Russel x Pomeranian and is full of love and kisses. His just over 18 months old now and his life is now being affected by his bad hip.
Over the past year buster has been in pretty good health. We believe buster was not looked after or cared for properly when a puppy and we could see this when we went to view him. Myself and my partner decided that we could not leave him and although we did not want to support the bad dog trade we new Buster would be happier with us. Due to this bad start we did have various issues with buster when he was young, this involved behaviour issues as well as infections caused by bacteria.
In the last 6 months buster has taken a down turn this has caused him to be pretty much bed bound. Not even the juiciest of bones will excite him and after many trips to the vets (which hasn't earned me any brownie points) and lots of attempts to solve the problem without surgery we are now at a dead end, last resort. Buster needs to have a full Hip replacement involving a specially designed Hip socket to allow the full movement of busters back legs. This procedure will be a big operation and will need at least two weeks after care as Buster wont be able/allowed to move freely.
Buster is a key part of our family and with my girlfriend recently becoming pregnant aswell as us moving house our finances are more than stretched. We want to have buster running around in years to come with our kids and loving life to the full just like anyone should.
With Buster being in constant pain and our only options being surgery we hope we can pull together to raise the funds to save a young dog his life.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
