    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    Sadly, Sparky the most beautiful little Border Collie with a heart bigger than he was, and who suffered from diabetes, and cataracts, passed away on March 17th at 17.03 pm, at home in the arms of his owners. He had kidney failure.

    We thank you for the support given and will put the raised money toward his final vet bill. In all, over 1 year, his uninsured vet bills amounted to £19,000, but Sparky's fight for life was worth every penny. We were raising money to put toward his cataract surgery.

    He was the best Border Collie we have ever had the priviledge to know.

    Miss you sweet, brave and courageous Sparky, forever. XXX

    The photographs shown were taken the day before he died. In one of them you will see how small Sparky was as he stands next to his 5 month old nephew, Timmy. Sparky was just 14 inches high at 14 months old. He had pituitary Dwarfism.

    I deserved to live, and I made the most of the life I had. My only regret was suffering from diabetes from birth. Please, if you can and feel so inclined please continue to donate to the Animal Health Trust at Newmarket and Cambridge so that they can research how better to cure diabetes in animals. There are a lot of animals out there with this dreadful disease and many are born with it.

    Goodbye, and thank you, from Sparky. XXX

      Sparky is still holding on, it’s looking like he may have diabetes but we’re not sure of the cause just yet.

      I met Sparky earlier today and he is just the cutest little boy! I wish him all the luck and hope that he can soon be booked in for his much needed op!
