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.


Schlooby The Sausage is a Miniature Dachshund from Derby. He loves barking, balls and de-fluffing toys to find the squeaker! He is recovering from his second operation after suffering from IVDD this year (Intervertebral Disc Disease - a common health problem in UK Daschunds). Each operation costs £3800 plus physio and hydrotherapy for recovery meaning that his health has cost over £8,000 so far and the end is not yet in sight. Schlooby is the loyal friend and beloved fur baby of Charlotte who has (and will) pay anything to keep Schlooby healthy and happy. Friends, family and social media followers of Charlotte and Schlooby know how difficult and expensive these last few months have been and some have wanted to find a way to help; and so this is a forum for that. If you can spare (the justgiving minimum donation amount) of just £2 and spread the word then together we have a good chance of contributing to the health and happiness of Schlooby and the mental and emotional health of Charlotte (my sister)! Thanks in advance for anything that you can spare. You can follow him and his progress on Instagram @schloobythesausage and connect with him on Facebook too

    Thank you so much for the donations so far. It's been a nerve wracking day but Schlooby had his second surgery this afternoon and we're pleased to report that it went well. The vet said that it was a difficult operation with it being so close to his first surgery. It was a much larger leaked disk this time and was very freshly done - it would have ruptured just yesterday. There will be a further update tomorrow but the vet was optimistic of him being home on Saturday. Fingers crossed!
