I decided I’d do something with my time and raise some money for the charity which rescued Gigi – Barking Mad Dog Rescue. With Covid-19, they’re becoming overwhelmed with the influx of dogs they have and the fact that no dogs can be rehomed at the moment isn’t helping them at all.
Barking Mad Dog Rescue are a charity that rescues dogs in Romania and finds them loving and caring homes in the UK and Germany. Not only that, but they help locals who don’t necessarily have the education on how best to care for their companion. They do amazing work and are incredible people. But as I said, they need help desperately.
Food, vets bills, and other pet supplies don’t come cheap. I promise you even one dog can be expensive!
So this month, I’m challenging myself to run 100 kilometres throughout the month of May. As of today, I’m on 39.11k, actually slightly ahead of schedule!
This challenge is really hard, and it is pushing me to my limits, but knowing I am helping more dogs like Gigi is really motivating.
Gigi is my world. She gets me out of bed in the mornings, offers unconditional love, and never fails to make me smile with her antics.
If you can donate, even the smallest amount, my JustGiving link is this:

If you can’t donate, please share this so that it might reach someone who can. Everything helps at the moment, and myself, BMDR, and the dogs are all so grateful.
