Marathon for DaliDogs Home-Year Two!

€410 of €500 goal

Raised by 13 people in 69 months
Last year when I fundraised for the marathon I was really successful and the difference it made to the pound was unbelievable. They cleared a lot of vet bills and were able to buy food and blankets to help them survive through the winter.

Everybody has watched the craziness unfold this week in Cyprus. Cypriots are being asked to fork out up to ten percent of their savings accounts and the ECB has withdrawn any funding until the situation is resolved.So there is absolutely nada left over for all the homeless puppies, kittens and abandoned dogs.

In all this the volunteers at the Dali Dogs home are unable to make any transfers out of the country which means they can't pay for flights etc. Last year the pound only had enough money to feed the dogs ten days for every one month, its even worse now. Lately massive amounts of new strays have been coming into the shelter and government funding is too low. They are suffering because the politicians and bankers have managed to bankrupt the country and now there is not enough funding for the very minimal care of these animals. Lots of families have left the country and abandoned their animals because of the drastic economical situation. 

Volunteers are working around the clock even though they all have full time jobs and families to get as many rehoused and fostered as possible and luckily they are being really successful but they still need our help to pay for the vets bills, food and for pet passports and help fund the flights. 

Myself and Jonathan Roberts are running a marathon in Amsterdam October which is a whopping 26,6 miles. I would love it if anyone who had a spare fiver or tenner knocking about would donate it for the hungry doggies. Every euro makes a massive difference to them as they can buy big bags of pasta and make sure they all go to sleep with a full bellies or get out of the cages to proper families who will give them a good, loving home. 

I am going next week to see the pound and will be able to provide lots of photos, cases  and updates.

Right Lads, I am running the Bonn Half Marathon tomorrow. Despite telling anyone who will listen that I am not doing it because I am too unfit/depressed/tired. I was fighting fit until a massive cactus plant fell on my feet and I was basically lame for the most important training time and then this week has been a total nightmare with my own pooch who was touch and go, Mr. Matty Roberts-Santos. I would really appreciate a couple of sponsors, if I could get to twenty squids that would buy 20 kgs of food and whilst I am having a heart attack at 7 am tomorrow morning I will console myself that it was worth it!
