Weʼre raising £750 to Remove a tree that we've just discovered is poisoning our dogs
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.
Myself and Amy got married last September - a breath of fresh air after some pretty horrific years for us both.
Bought a house prior to being married and life with our twin 4 yr olds was great - ups and downs that every working family has with regards to quarrels, some months more flush than others but we both work hard and enjoy what life has to offer.
This year we decided to introduce more disruption into our lives and managed to get brother and sister Pug puppies using our savings. They are insured, want for nothing but recently they have been very ill for a prolonged period of time and by the time we got to the root cause they had both cost a fortune in individual vets bills.
The cause of illness was the fruit from a wild cherry tree we have in our garden that until now we have thought nothing of. The stones contain cyanide so gradually were poisoning the dogs.
I've fenced the garden off costing more money and the tree needs to go. We've been quoted around 7-800 pounds hence why I am now on here in the hope that we can get some help off the animal lovers out there.
We are very proud people and this is a last resort but our dogs and kids mean everything to us and we cannot afford to do this any time soon by our own means. The tree is around 60ft tall so it's not a DIY thing to do.
If you can heklp - even a small amount it would mean so much to us.
Luke and Amy (and doug and betty)
