Weʼre raising £3,000 to help support further research into CRGV (Alabama Rot) because the source is still unknown and this disease is killing our dogs.

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

Our wonderful Alfie was taken from us too soon. He was a loved family member. The cause of death was Alabama Rot, a disease that seems to be increasing. We as owners need to be aware of the symptoms as early diagnosis is key. Talk to your vet immediately about your concerns. What you need to ask is that your vet considers your concerns and does a blood test and urine test immediately. We want to raise funds to print posters to share with vets and dog owners. This disease is killing our dogs and little is known about it.

We also want to raise funds to have the area where the disease has been identified investigated. We need more information.

Within 4 days Alfie died - we are heartbroken but in his memory we want to help stop this happening to others.

Alfie was not my dog, he was my best dogmate though! He was a gentle and happy dog that was loved by all. RIP Alfie and I will have your dentastix ready for when we meet again.

Thank you

    Update on 4th June 2018: Our 1st fundraising event for #RememberingAlfie was a success! We managed to reach our target of £3,000 for research funding for Dr Fiona Macdonald. Fiona has written to say how grateful she is for the support of the public without which she would not have been able to carry out the study which is certainly contributing to knowledge of the disease. In particular Fiona has kindly thanked Alfie's family and confirmed our support will help Fiona continue with her research. These funds are making a difference. Thank you

    This is the email I received in response to our donation so far. "It was entirely fortuitous that we had a committee meeting last evening & discussed the funding of Fiona's (Macdonald) request for setting up a DNA testing system. Without your input we would not have been able to do it, so you can rest assured that when this gets up & running it is your efforts that have made it happen." Well done to all of us... We are making a difference. Our hearts remain broken but we are glad something good may come out of our heartache. Thank you

My name is Joanne and Alfie was my mate! I can't believe he was taken from us so suddenly and that very little is known about the disease CRGV. In Alfie's memory I need something good to come out of his death. Please consider helping us fundraise for vital research. Thank you
