Weʼve raised £10 to Train a service dog
- Taunton, United Kingdom
- Funded on Tuesday, 10th October 2017
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.
I have been let down by a charity who agreed to help me to train my dog as a therapy/assistance dog. He currently is doing brilliantly with his training however I have had to go to a private company. Training Loki will cost about £2000. This is a substantial amount for our family.
I have had to take long term sick while struggling with anxiety and difficulty leaving the house. I'm terrified of big spaces, crowds and shops in particular. I've spent three years unable to access shops and Loki has helped massively.
Being on long term sick has obviously dented our finances massively.
If I can't get Loki registered I will be unable to rely on him and thus unable to access shops and my work place.
Once Loki is trained I will be taking him into schools and hospitals and volunteering to help others in need of dog support. I cannot do this without help though.
Anything you can give would be amazing and Loki and I will be hugely thankful.

About the fundraiser
Taunton, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of three with huge anxiety. I can't access shops or the school playground without my support dog but he needs registering. After being let down by a charity I have decided to ask for help. I will use Loki to volunteer in schools and hospitals as well.
