Weʼre raising £200 to pay for vet treatment of Duchess for severe anaemia. If we don't take her from the pound she will be left to die.

What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.Read more
I run a dog rescue on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. Many dogs and puppies are dumped on the streets or fields to die of starvation, if they are 'lucky' they are found and taken to the local municipal pound where they will spend five weeks at most confined to a small kennel. After five weeks the dogs are destroyed regardless of age or health. The only medical treatment given to these dogs are antibiotics, so broken legs, cuts, bites and other illnesses go untreated, often the dog dies slowly, in pain and alone before it can be destroyed.
Duchess has severe anaemia and will suffer a slow death unless she is taken to the vet for treatment. Please help us to save this beautiful, gentle girl.

Thank you to all those people who have donated, we have raised £74 towards our £200 target to help poor Duchess who was left to die in the municipal pound. I spoke to the vet today and Duchess is eating now. Little steps in the right direction. Keep fighting beautiful girl.

About the fundraiser
Ponta Delgada, Portugal
Duchess is currently in a small kennel in a municipal pound in Ponta Delgada - she has severe anaemia and is refusing to eat. No vet treatment will be given so she will be left to die a slow death. Please help us to raise the money to pay for her vet treatment.
