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.


Ted needs a leg operation to be able to play and run. A rescued Irish greyhound who was injured racing, then ‘thrown on the scrap heap’ the day after, Teddy Tedster is five years old and a much loved pet. As well as having beautiful amber eyes, he is mischievous, playful and very, very affectionate!

His owner Rick celebrates a BIG birthday this summer, but says his only wish is for Ted to enjoy life to the full. Ted adores his dad and the pair love spending time together. Only 16 months ago, Rick lost beloved greyhound Jack very suddenly to lung cancer at a young age. So he is passionate about helping new dog Ted be vital and happy.

Would anybody who knows Rick, or hears about his story, like to make a donation towards the cost of Ted’s surgery, by way of wishing Rick a very happy 50th?! He does not wish for cards or gifts, as says the very best present would be to see Ted have the freedom to enjoy himself on all four legs. This would make him – and his handsome boy – extremely happy!

    Great news! Ted has finally had his operation! The surgery went well and we've now entered a two+ week phase of regular bandage/dressing changes and check ups. With pain meds and lots of tlc our lovely lad is faring really well. No walks until we are given the thumbs up - and then they will be short and built up gradually. He'll have an X-ray in approx 4-6 weeks to check the bones are fusing properly. Huge thanks to everyone for your amazing generosity and thoughtfulness. It is very touching! We will keep you updated re his progress :-).

    Well, we've now had it confirmed by our vet surgeon that he would like to do the op w/b 23rd July! Ted seems unfazed, we're a little apprehensive, but that's only natural. So watch this space all you amazingly generous and kind people. It does mean that Rick will be spending his birthday helping to play nurse ;-). But I am sure both boys will enjoy doing some serious bonding.

    Teddy has a thing about sun loungers ... armchairs ... think he might find it a bit tricky post op with a big bandage! He has a six inch thick floor bed but is not too enamoured of it ...
