Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund Rosie's surgery and rehabilitation for her leg so she doesn't lose it

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.

Our little Yorkshire Terrier, Rosie, needs complex surgery to repair her leg so she doesn't lose it. She is just 5 years old and has already had 2 previous surgeries for Patella Luxation, aswell as regular Hydrotherapy treatment. She has now had an accident and broken this same leg in 2 places and is in extreme pain, which is being helped by strong painkillers. Our Vets have said they cannot do anything further themselves to help and she has to be referred to a Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon imminently. We have managed to fund all her previous treatments ourselves up until now, as her insurers will not cover her, due to a technicality. We have now exhausted all avenues trying to find further money for the upcoming treatment she needs, which is going to cost around £5,000.
Rosie is a lovely, happy little thing, who loves lots of attention and cuddles from anyone. She has brought so much joy to our lives and the thought of her having to go through more surgery breaks our hearts.
If you can help, no matter how small the amount, it would be so appreciated and we would be forever in your debt.

Rosie has now seen a specialist in Hampshire, who has agreed he can carry out the surgery and insert a metal plate into her leg. She will need to stay with them for a couple of days and then it's going to be a very long healing process for our little girl. The cost for this part of the treatment will be around £3,000. A massive thank you to those who have already donated. We are still hoping for any further donations towards this, no matter how small, as every little helps. Thank you all for taking the time to follow Rosie's progress xx
