    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.

    Story

    In October I will be travelling to the NIRINA dog shelter in Bosnia-Herzogovina (you can find them on FB and donate or sponsor a dog). This shelter provides true sanctuary to around 600 stray dogs, with no running water or electricity on site. I’ll be driving my van 1400 miles each way with supplies for the dogs. This will also be a learning experience in shelter medicine on behalf of my fledgling charitable organisation which you can read about at www.squarepegsdogrehab.org.uk . I’ll be funding the Bosnia trip myself, but any donations towards it mean more money can be diverted to setting up a sanctuary here in the UK. Some 10,000 plus healthy dogs are destroyed each year in the UK for lack of a place to go.

      Thanks everyone who has donated so far, and arranged food/medicines/equipment. I will be collecting until I leave on Oct 23rd to spend a week driving there and helping with vet jobs. . DONATION MATCHING! I will match every cash donation with my own money up to £500.. wouldn't it be great if we could get £1000 together to cover fuel + Eurotunnel and there would be enough left to buy extras for the dogs and the humans who live + work there in tough conditions- really cold winters, very hot summers, no electricity, no water.
