raised of £400 target by 18 supporters

Weʼre raising £400 to help rescue dogs at Street Hearts BG, by running the 10k London Winter Run

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.” Jon Katz

As a dog owner and dog-training enthusiast, there is a special place in my heart for all four-legged friends. In my thirty years of existence, I have yet to find a living being that can give humans a better lesson in the art of unwavering loyalty and unconditional love.

I'm not usually one for races or organised activities, but when I decided to get back into running, and signed up to the 2020 10k London Winter Run, I immediately knew I wanted to find a way to support the amazing hard work Street Hearts puts in, come hell or high water, day in and day out.

Unfortunately, not all cats and dogs have the good fortune to live a comfortable and sheltered life, and that is why we need incredible people like Emma and Anthony at Street Hearts Bulgaria who dedicate their every living moment to rescuing and neutering strays across Bulgaria, and finding them happy forever homes across Europe.

Originally from Yorkshire in the UK, Emma and Anthony started Street Hearts to address a problem they witnessed first hand on the streets of Bulgaria, using their own money to fund their mission. Today they rely on donations and sponsorships to support their work.

Hear from Emma and Anthony in their own words:

Every little helps!

It's so important to me to support organisations who are transparent about how they use the donations they receive.

With Street Hearts BG, every donation, no matter how small, can make a concrete difference to an animal's life - here's how you can help:

£5 buys Worming tablets for 1 dog for 1 year

£9 buys Essential Immunisations for 1 dog

£10 buys Dog food for 1 dog for 1 month

£14 buys Puppy food for 1 puppy for 1 month

£18 sponsors the neutering of a male dog

£30 buys Flea and tick treatment for 1 dog for 1 year

£35 sponsors the neutering of a female dog

See more on how donations are being used on Street Hearts BG's website.

    Some unfortunate news today... the London Winter Run has been cancelled 😓 with a storm coming to England the organisers could not ensure the event would go safely, which is an absolute shame! I want to thank everyone who has supported me and donated to Street Hearts. For me it has been a great journey back to running - 147.7k since 2nd December over 25 runs - and I’ll aim to keep up the good work 💪🏼

    Good luck. Street Hearts are amazing. I adopted my doggie from them. I've had her1 year today and she's a wonderful sweet dog. Emma and Anthony do wonderful work with the stray dogs.
