    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.

    Story

    Bella was abandoned in a pet store just before Christmas last year. We realised that she had problems with all four legs and was limping quite badly on them all.

    The vet believed it was double elbow and double hip dysplasia and we have had x-rays done to determine the extent of the problem.

    Her hips are ok for now and can be managed with medication and by keeping her weight down but she has elbow disease in both elbows. We don’t know to what extent yet as she needs to be referred to a specialist for an arthroscopy on both elbows and then she will need to have whatever treatment they decide after that.

    The estimated cost of treatment at this time is £3000 per elbow and none of this is covered by insurance beause it is classed as a pre existing condition.

      Bella had bone chips removed from inside her elbows back in August. She still has elbow and hip dysplasia in all 4 joints and her cruciate ligaments arent great but she’s not a candidate for more surgery at present. We’re hoping we will be able to control the conditions from here with hydro and physio which is costing us almost £200 a month at the moment. I have now set up a non profit company call Bella’s Beau’s Ltd to allow us to continue fundraising for her and also to raise funds for other animals in need of treatment as well.

      Bella has now been to see the specialist and the image below gives details of the findings and present treatment plan. She has several issues all of which we are managing to control at the moment and hope to continue to do so but this doesn’t mean that she won’t need further treatment in the future. She will need life long care and support. I am happy to disclose all treatment costs with anyone who wishes to message me and any excess funds would be saved for further treatment should it be needed if this is ok with the donators?

      I just want to thank everyone for their support and donations. You have no idea how grateful I really am and words just don’t seem enough. When I set this page up I thought this was going to be an impossible task but I am starting to believe that I will actually be able to keep my promise to Bella and give her the life she deserves so thank you so much xx
