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.
After going to my holiday home in France, I discovered the most adorable abandoned little kitten who was very, very sick. After looking after him for 5 days we realised that he could only of been 5 weeks old and really deserved the most amazing home as he had the best personality. I decided to name him Autumn. Unfortunately, we couldn't take him back to the UK to be with our other cats as he didn't have a passport! Eventually, we decided to take him a cat sanctuary not far away in a place called, Bagnoles de L'Orne near Mayenne. Upon arrival the saddest sight met our eyes, around 23 dogs and over 50 cats were living outside in 'DIY' pens. Madamme Voilleau, the lady who manages the sanctuary had given up her own home and decided to live in a caravan onsite.
Eventually we were able to bring autumn home in time for Christmas 2015. Some of the animals have been abandoned down country lanes and have been brought here with no other place to go. Some of the dogs had been here for nearly 7 years. It was truly heartbreaking. This is why I have decided to come to justgiving and ask for YOUR help! We need to raise money to help fund for new indoor shelters to be built with heating and a safe space where each animal can get away and have some time alone. Your donations will be spent on food and toys allowing these animals to be given the best chance for adoption! If you want more information please check out the website,
