Weʼre raising £250 to help Tobi get home
- Vicenza, Province of Vicenza, Italy
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.
Tobi, the white Italian sheepdog, was born in Southern Italy approx three years ago. He lived on the streets, survived abuse and cruelty, never knowing a home or regular food.
A traffic accident broke his leg and he struggled on alone with his hind paw hanging off, until eventually one day the paw dropped off. I can only imagine what kind of pain he endured, its amazing he lived through it.
I came to hear about this lovely animal from a caring lady who fosters rescued dogs in Italy, preparing the lucky ones for their new homes. She’d heard on the volunteers grapevine about a brave little dog continuing to survive against the odds that had recently become thin and depressed, losing the will to live. He had no prospect of being adopted due to his age and injury. Amy knew there was a chance I’d try to find him a home in the UK and once I’d seen his photos and those sad eyes, I couldn’t forget him.
So now he’s not just a sad 3-legged dog begging in Italy, he’s Tobi, he’s been rescued from the streets and travelled up to my friends in Vicenza, staying with them until he comes to live with me and my family in the New Forest. In spite of everything he never lost faith in humans, he’s quiet, respectful and grateful for every bit of food and kindness he’s shown, and quick to wag his tail in thanks!
I‘m appealing to any sympathic people who may be kind enough to help by donating a small amount of money to go towards covering his travel expenses and veterinary costs. Thank you.
