What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

The Tiny Shelter in Albufeira has rescued and rehomed over 400 dogs since it opened. It is managed and maintained entirely by volunteers who rescue dogs from the streets, or from neglectful or abusive homes. Now, the shelter and it's 20 current canine residents must move to a new location. The volunteers are unable to pay for this themselves, so we - one of the families who adopted from The Tiny Shelter - are raising money for fencing and building materials to create a new shelter.

    The Tiny Shelter has been quoted for the cost of the fencing at the new shelter. If we hit our target, they will be able to afford this and the materials they need to build the housing for the dogs!

    We've raised £2605 for the Tiny Shelter! You are all fabulous human beings!! We're over our halfway mark, but we're not done yet. Please encourage people to keep sharing and donating. There are dogs needing homes, so if you know anyone looking to adopt, please contact Isabel. Isabel sent me an update yesterday - they are looking at options for land for the shelter, but what they can get will depend on money raised. If there are any locals who are willing to help build the shelter once land is secured, please let Isabel know. Thank you!!!

We adopted our dog, Buddy, from the Tiny Shelter and have kept in touch with them ever since. Buddy was abandoned and would have died without the shelter, so we'd like to be able to give something back to the people who gave us our lovely Buddy boy.
