We’re proud to announce that with the Give A Fluff Community’s help, we were able to raise $1,490 to support @DominoTheCorgi!
Domino is a seven-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi who suffered from a ruptured disc in his back that, if left untreated, could result in permanent paralysis, the loss of bladder control function, and the threat of being put down. Just one year ago, Domino experienced the same problem and was able to recover after a major surgery on his back, which he would now have to go through again. His family launched a GoFundMe campaign and Domino’s followers stepped up to help however they could.
The Give A Fluff team decided to help out by launching a t-shirt campaign (of course) so aptly named “Save Domino’s Butt”. $10 from each shirt sale was to be donated to Domino’s fund, which ended up accounting for over 50% of the profits.
After a discussion with Domino’s family about how much they needed to reach their goal, it was decided that $1,200 of the funds raised would go toward Domino and his medical costs. Thanks to the tremendous response to our campaign, we were able to help Domino’s family exceed their fund goal in less than a week! HOW FRAPTASTIC IS THAT!?
As for the remainder of the money raised, $100 was donated to Pup Squad in Houston (home of Give A Fluff HQ) and the rest will be split between a donation to @hippy_the_corgi, who is suffering from Congential Heart Failure, and another rescue, which we are still in the process of deciding on.
While our efforts are usually focused on rescues and animals with no one fighting for them, we’re proud to have made a big impact on Domino’s fundraiser and wish him a quick recovery!
