raised of £2,000 target by 94 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,775 to bring Maria & Murphy the 2 street dogs I rescued whilst cycling across Brazil back to Scotland.

    Funded on Wednesday, 28th February 2018

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Whilst cycling across Brazil I rescued a street dog called Maria and adopted her. I cycled with her in my dog trailer to get help a few hundred kilometres away at the Dogs in Brazil shelter and pedalled by another street dog, Murphy who had been shot and his ear cut off with an open wound. I couldn't leave him on the street to die in pain so I took him too. Both dogs were near death and the money was raised via World Bike Girl social media & blog for medical costs to give them life which I'm eternally grateful for. Murphy had to have an eye removed due to damage done by shot gun pellets.

    At the end of Feb 2018 both dogs will be ready for entry into UK. This is the final fundraiser to raise the money required to fly both dogs into Scotland to live their happy ever afters. I want to say a huge thank you to for caring for both dogs during this time.
