£290raised of £4,000 target by 18 supporters

Weʼre raising £4,000 to enable Chica the Chihuahua to have the critical hospital treatment she requires to give her the best chance of survival.

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.



We have set up this crowd funding page to support our sisters 11 week old puppy. Chica the chihuahua needs critical care in an animal hospital again but Andrea is unable to afford anymore treatment for her as current cost have mounted to £4,400 already. £4,000 was covered by the insurance but that is the limit for Chica’s cover. The vets and nurses at Vets4Pets (Perth) in Pets At Home have volunteered to provide critical care during the night at their own homes for Chica to help her stay alive but she really needs hospital treatment. Andrea provided critical care for Chica last night but she would struggle to do this nightly for Chica and we can’t thank the staff at Vets4Pets in Pets At Home enough for offering their generous support.

Chica tested positive for coccidia (a parasite that lives in the intestines) This can be a life threatening illness for some puppies. Chica was well when she went to her new home but the parasite was present and she started having sickness and diarreha after 5 days, because of the sickness and diarrhea this led to hypoglycaemia, dehydration and weight loss.

We hoped that we can raise some funds to give Chica the best chance of survival. If you can donate even £1 we would be extremely grateful.

    I would like to thank you all sincerely for your kind donations. Little Chica had to be put to sleep yesterday evening. Unfortunately Chica’s weakened body started shutting down and the vet thought it would be more comfortable for her to be put to sleep. We brought her home and burried her in our garden, we are all devastated but her life was not meant to be. I will arrange to give everyone their donations back or I could donate it to Vets4Pets staff for their care. I will be in touch with everyone later about this. Andrea xxx
