Street Dog Appeal – July 2016 – JCF Mexico

JC Fundraising andJCF Mexicofounder Jaden has been living in Mexico for about 6 months now and says “I am moved every day by the amount of uncared for animals here. I have 2 rescue dogs of my own and I so wish I could do more to help but its not easy in rented accommodation. We always carry a bag of dried food in the trunk of our car but its not enough. I want to do more, so I’m hoping to raise enough funds to purchase some land here and to build some shelters to house street dogs. The money left over will help me to purchase food and water and also vet costs as I hope to castrate and spay all the dogs I rescue when possible. This is a big thing to undertake but every day I see so many street dogs and then I look at…

Street Care Appeal

We have recently been deeply moved by the plight of a homeless 64 year old woman Marie Parnes who has been living on the streets for the past seven and a half years after becoming a victim of domestic violence. She spends the nights riding busses, she is scared to sleep and NO ONE will help her because she fled her abusive English husband without the correct paperwork to get the help she needs. It doesn’t matter that she has had a stroke, has burns on her arm and a daughter that doesn’t want her – she just keeps being put back on the streets. JCF NW London Manager, Hayley Hemmingway-Hare found Marie and helped her to find a bed for the night and has been campaigning ever since to get Mariethe right care and help that she desperately needs. JCF’s Street Care is a new appeal that aims to…
