    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Pascal is just one of hundreds of dogs that are ignored, mistreated and abused. On a recent visit to Halkidiki we saw a dog covered in blood and dragging his leg as he struggled down the road. We had no water or food to give him. He looked at us with his sad eyes and walked on. We felt sad and helpless.
    The day after, on a nearby beach, he sought us out and came and sat by us. He was in a very sorry state and looked near death. We gave him water and tried to find him somewhere to stay at one of the rescue centres in the area. Sadly, there was no room in any of them so we offered to pay for him to stay somewhere, what else could we do? He had nowhere to go, nobody to care for him and he was, by this time on the edge of death.

    We learnt a lot that week about the ill-treatment of dogs in Greece and what we learned was horrific. If you want to know more visit Julie’s page, but be prepared to be shocked, https://www.facebook.com/groups/47226459846/10154415657414847/?notif_t=group_activity&notif_id=147197941205115. We decided to offer this dog, now named Pascal, a chance to live. He needs surgery to repair his shattered leg, he needs accommodation for his recovery and then he needs to be found a home, hopefully with one of us if he will live with our dogs.

    We visited to rescue centre who is dealing with his care on the Greek side and they need constant funding to help these poor animals escape the cruelty and brutality that far too commonly they endure.

    Our plan is to raise money to fund Pascal’s recovery and then to donate to the rescue centre that does such an amazing job to help these animals recover and then to help them find their forever homes, often overseas.
    Please help us to help these animals, they have nobody else but us.
