    Weʼve raised £315 to help fund Cassie's surgery

    Warrington, UK
    Funded on Friday, 2nd November 2018

    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.


    Cassie is a 3yr old Rescued female American Bulldog.
    I found her at the age of 10 months through a Facebook selling site. She was being temporarily looked after by a dog fosterer as she had been taken from the home where she had previously been abused.
    She was a very timid little pup and was clearly not in great health, underfed and tatty furred.. I knew instantly when I saw her little face she was coming home with me.
    Cassie is my first dog, her purpose was to help me through my struggles with mental illness.. we became companions and she has helped with my recovery, just as I have helped with her's.
    She is so full of love and life, and considering where she came from she has the best temperament I could ask for..but she's also very clumsy..

    Chasing her ball she tumbled, and on standing she couldn't weight bare on her right back leg.. so off to the vets we went and she was diagnosed with a Cruciate ligament rupture, and will now require surgery or be left with a lame leg for the rest of her years with the early onset of arthritis.
    The quote for her x-ray and surgery is estimated at £3000.
    Cassie is insured, but unfortunately her insurance will not cover the costs, leaving £1100 to be funded.

    RSPCA cannot perform the surgery required and I do not live within catchment areas for PDSA or Blue Cross assistance.

    I feel very cheeky starting crowdfunding, but Cassie's health is important to me and unfortunately due to ongoing struggles with my mental health I am no longer in work and have no means of funding this myself..
    This is a last resort and I am hoping to reach out to anyone who can help my beautiful little girl live her best life.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my plea and we will be forever grateful for any contribution towards her surgery.

    Lots of love Hannah & Cassie <3
