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.
A couple of months ago, I visited an animal refuge called PeludoSOS in North West Spain. Of course, there are many amazing animal refuges around the world, but this one in particular made an impact on me.
Located in a remote part of Salamanca, the sanctuary was created 3 years ago by a beautiful hearted couple called Victor and Eva, who have committed their lives to rescuing abandoned and mistreated animals here. They live on site and every day are dedicated to looking after and rescuing animals in need, the ultimate goal to find these animals a permanent loving home through adoption, or ensure they are loved within the sanctuary for however long they stay.
They rescue not only dogs and cats, but horses, pigs, ducks, donkeys, goats, chicken..basically any animal that is in need. And they do this through pure compassion and love. They have a small but strong army of caring volunteers who help in any way possible, but they have very little financial support except for goodwill donations. Nobody receives any payment, all goes to the animals care.
When I was here I saw the immense workload-the daily routines to feed the animals, clean their beds, ensure they are healthy and safe. With over 100 animals, mostly dogs, they give them all the best medical care and teach them behavioural skills. But most importantly, I saw the genuine love for each and every animal. How they treat every single one as a unique being.What was even more inspiring is that all of these animals are so HAPPY. Freedom to run and play, warm beds at night, regular food and an abundance of love given to them. The dogs here do not fight or steal each others food, they are genuinely happy.
The bills, veterinary care, mortgage are incredibly high. Food costs around 1300euro per month. And the funds are very low. Which is why I am asking anybody who loves animals or appreciates human kindness to please support these people and animals.<3
