    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

    Dogs in Craiova face a horrible fate, unless they are rescued by Friends for Life, a tiny team of tenacious,  but  exhausted people  who  take  as  many  as  they  can  into  their shelter. Conditions  are  pitiful,  with  a  concrete floor and chipboard kennels.  Water has to be brought by car each day. In the evening, they go out and feed the dogs still on the street. They do all this on top of their day jobs. Every penny they receive goes to food, veterinary fees and other essentials. They also work with a local charity neutering service. The dogs are rehomed across Europe. When they find a home for one of the lucky dogs, it comes by dog transport service  (the  "Happy  Bus") to the new owner, or sometimes to a UK rescue, where it will have a better chance of finding a home.

    The cost of the transport for our two small dogs is £285, and 100 euros for their passports (which includes all the inoculations you would expect a dog to have in the UK, as well as rabies). The rest of the money has already been paid to Friends For Life for food and emergency vaccinations, as there has been a recent outbreak of distemper at the public kill shelter.

    The picture shown is of Riff and Syrah, the two dogs we're bringing over to the UK for rehoming from the wonderful Holbrook Animal Rescue, near Horsham, West Sussex.

      I am overjoyed to be able to share these pictures with you of Riff and Syrah with their new friends in their new homes! Thank you all so much for your generous donations which have made this possible. You are all wonderful. I will close this page in the next week or so. Any last minute donations will go to the rescuers in Craiova, Romania, to help them save more dogs.

      And Riff & Syrah are now safely at Holbrook near Horsham, West Sussex (www.holbrookanimalrescue.co.uk) and waiting for a home. They are both small, young, friendly, (including cat-friendly), neutered, house-trained and adorable. Here they are begging for sausages today. I am delighted with and grateful to you all for your kindness and generosity. I'll close this page soon, maybe once the dogs have found new homes, so I can tell you about that. Thank you from Riff, Syrah and me. xxx
