Make Mitch well again

£2,000 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 3 months
Mitch, my beloved Border Collie, became poorly on the 22nd December. He was unable to walk well and 72 hours later he lost the ability to walk, stand and urinate by himself. He spent Christmas day like this. 

He is currently in a specialist veterinary hospital where today he underwent a CT scan and myelography (dye). The vet suspects either a large cyst compressing on his spinal cord, an embolism or even meningitis. His scans are getting sent to a specialist for confirmation and spinal fluid has been sent to the laboratory for testing.  


25th December: Mitch loves his cat brother, Logan, seen here keeping him company while he rests.


The initial cost of the CT & myelography cost £1500. I have used what I had in my bank account (£900) to cover a part of that but that is all my savings gone. 

Mitch is my world. I can't have my best friend leave me just because I'm a recent university graduate wihout an income.  Anything that you can give will make all the difference and I will be truly grateful.


Mitch loves nothing more than a game of fetch with his ball. To see him unable to walk, deficating on himself breaks my heart, little by little everyday.

We go everywhere together. He gives me the confidence I need to go out on walks as I wear a prosthetic limb. Everyone that meets Mitch is immediatley besotted by his sweet nature. All the students at Aberdeen uni know him well- he loves nothing more than encouraging the students to play ball with him. 




Please help Mitch get better.

*Mitch also has his own bank account- set up specifically for his treatment and recovery. If you would rather donate that way, get in touch directly :)

Tonight we have reached our target! I am touched by all the donations and personal messages sent to us, truly.

Mitch sees the Vet next week, so will keep everyone posted on how he gets on. We may have reached our goal, however, the best we can all hope for is that Mitch does not have lymphoma and only continues getting better.

A huge thank you to everyone.

Mitch is supposed to be resting, however, he has more energy and more drive to instigate play with Logan- just like he used to before he became ill.

He did wet the bed during the night and has some accidents but does manage to go outside for the bathroom when prompted.

I'm so very proud of my boy. On this bitterly cold evening he has managed to do a pee & a poo outside in the front garden!

Good work buddy :)
