    Story

    As some of you will know I have just come back from Romania where there is a huge stray dog problem. Everywhere you look there are dogs wandering the streets, many with broken legs or other injuries. Dead dogs on the side of the road. So many cold, hungry and doing what they can to survive. Despite this most of them are the sweetest most friendly dogs who deserve so much more. They deserve to be loved and cared for. So far I have committed to bringing 6 of these dogs over to the UK for new homes. A mother and her 4 young puppies and also a lovely collie who we met. I wish I could help them all, but I will continue to do what I can for as many as I can. As you can imagine the costs for this will be high. Both adult dogs will need to be spayed, all dogs will need to have vaccinations, flea treatment, wormers, veterinary care. As well as kennelling costs before they are ready to travel and then the transport costs to get them to the UK. A few lovely people have offered to donate to help me pay these costs and get the dogs safe. If anyone else would like to help it would be hugely appreciated! Whether you offer because of a love for dogs, or just as a favour to me every little will really help. The more money we can raise the more I can help. Thank you.

      Wow £720 raised to help these beautiful dogs. That's brilliant! Thank you so much everyone for your generous donations. I really appreciate every penny given. Some of you mentioned wanting to donate directly to me rather than via just giving so for those people and any further people wanting to donate please contact me for bank details. Xx

      Including cash donations I'm just over halfway to the target I set, 11 days of fundraising left on Justgiving and then I'll stop bugging people for donations! I really appreciate every penny that has been donated so far, it will all really help. Mum has now been spayed, it will still be a couple of months until the pups are ready to travel. If anyone else would like to help me please donate :)
