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.


September 2009 my Grandfather decided it was time to get a dog, he wanted to adopt though and so went to the SSPCA and chose a dog.
The dog he chose was a 7 month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier that we later named Cole.
Grandads mobility was limited so it was myself that would exercise and train Cole and it was Grandad that fed and nurtured him.
Cole quickly became the family dog and when it was time for me to move out I moved to a flat around the corner from my grandparents and Cole so that I could still help with his upkeep.

Sadly my Grandfather passed two years ago and within the last year I started working more.
My gran was unable to give Cole the attention and exercise he needed so he moved in with my other half and I.
All had been going great and Cole had shown my other half how great owning a dog was and so we decided to add another to the family.
Cole has been a great big brother and shown Codi how to be a dog.
I would imagine that without Cole raising her would have been a lot harder than it was.

For the past 3 months Cole has been having seizures.
We have had blood tests and all have came back clear, as great as that news is it also means the seizures are related to an issue with his brain.
In order to find the real problem we will need an MRI to find the cause and from there we can look at treatments and ways to insure his life is the best it can be.
Unfortunately this is all a very expensive and lengthy process and although I work full time I could never afford the treatment or MRI on my own and this is why I am asking for help.

This dog means the world to me, not only is he a tie to my Grandfather but he has also been my best friend for the past 10 years.

Every penny will be greatly appreciated towards Coles care.

Thank you.
