My story

I first found paws2rescue when I adopted Daisy 6 years ago and have since discovered how much more than a dog adoption charity they are. Their work includes supporting neutering both strays and pets where their owners can't afford it, preventative and acute medical care, surgery for traumatic injuries, working with local NGOs to build a new shelter in an area where there is no care for animals, supporting the amazing Romanian rescuers caring for dogs, cats, and farm animals, taking education into schools to help change future generations approach to animal care, knowing how communities struggle at Christmas they send hundreds of parcels to children, they support an SAS (safe and sound) community of animals who will never find forever homes of their own, and most recently they have worked with a local NGO and monastery to send help into Ukraine for both people and animals devastated by the war. And when they do adopt dogs to new homes they are always there for support and advice, they never just adopt out and walk away. They are a small team who work hard with both passion and compassion to make a huge impact on the lives of those they care for. For this and more (I will have forgotten some of their work I'm sure) they have my never ending respect and support.

This year paws2rescue have set themselves a mission to raise £22,000 between April 2nd and July 22nd. With this they are working with NGO Phoenix animal protection and human care, and University Spiru Haret Bucharest to take a mobile clinic into areas where no vets are available. They will enable newly qualified vets to get valuable experience, provide health care for animals that need it, neutering of course, provide kennels, collars and other basics for animal care. Rather than just provide care for the animals in these communities where there is a need they will also help with food for the people as well. A total approach to help communities learn animal and value welfare.

To reach this mission target of £22,000 paws2rescue is hoping 100 of us will take up the challenge of raising £220 each by doing something related to 22. For my part I am aiming to lose 2.2kg in 22 days from 27th April till 18th May. In the 2 years prior to covid I lost 35kg, yes I know horrendous, it was over 1/3 of my total weight, but I felt great and it helped my health and mobility enormously. During covid I put on 20kg and over the last year I have gradually lost 13kg but now seem to have plateaued and not lost anything for 6 weeks. So this 2.2kg goal will I hope kickstart to the final target. To aid this I shall give up cake and chocolate and aim to walk 22 miles over the 22 days. Now that may not sound like a lot, but trust me with my mobility as it is it really is quite a challenge. I will be very grateful to any and all who feel they would like to sponsor me in my challenge and help paws2rescue meet their mission goal.

In addition I am going to try and lose the rest of the 7kg I have to get back to precovid weight before July 22nd. This is my own personal challenge and I will donate £10 for every 1kg I lose between now and then.

Thank you for taking the time to read this I truly appreciate your support.

People are wonderful, especially little people. I have had so many people kindly take the time to stop and read about the mission, but one little boy made my heart swell. He stopped with his mum and asked if they could give some money. Mum was obviously in a hurry to get to the shops and said maybe on the way back. Obviously not happy the little boy put his hand in his pocket, ran to my front door and put 50p through my letter box, it brought tears to my eyes. I couldn't get to the door in time to thank him, so thank you so much. I plan to weigh in on Thursday, a third of the way through challenge, but so far I am managing a mile a day even if it takes me over an hour to accomplish. Have a great week, Chris 😊

Day 2 and doing well. Managed 2 miles and no cakes, chocolates or ice cream, which is a shame as it was really sunny today. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is sponsoring me, I promise I won't let you down, this mission is too important. I heard the sad news that a dear friend lost her beloved dog today, my thoughts are with you. But it reminded me, if I needed reminding, how much our dogs give to us, their loyalty, unconditional love, their joy and laughter. They are intelligent, often stubborn, sometimes frustrating but always family. And as I sit here and look at my pack snoozing on their beds I am so grateful 🙏 for all they give me, the very least I can do is complete my challenge and help those less fortunate. Many, many thanks for all your support, have a great weekend, Chris

Tuesday 3rd May, I have my motivation back. I've had something on my mind for a few weeks, what to do for the best type of thing. My heart tells me my instinct is right but I could be so wrong. So I've put it in the hands of the universe, she will make sure the best outcome occurs, and I can relax and wait. In the meantime I can get on with this mission which is so important. The survival of our world as a place we would want to live in depends on projects like this that look to the welfare of whole, poor communities. It will be a huge blow if paws2rescue are not able to achieve their summer of neutering, education and support. So last of my tablets today, day off tomorrow then I start full steam ahead Thursday 5th May. I will lose 2.2kg in 22 days and walk 22 miles in that time too (it's not much I know but for me it will be a challenge). I have to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who responded to Alison's very kind words and donated taking my total to £215, thank you so much. I have reset my target to £500 in response. To help that you can see I have made a small scarecrow, yes my face is on it, and planted it out the front of my house. I can't thank you enough for supporting my challenge but equally this mission 22 is so vital, and so close to the horrors occurring in Ukraine, how can we not help, every single £1 really makes a difference. I know life is tough here, but I wouldn't want to be there. Thank you 🥰

May 1st, and I haven't done well so far 😪. In my defence I still have a lot of pain and steroids are just making me eat. So yesterday I put on my bright pink "dogs don't judge" paws2rescue tee-shirt and took out in the sun. Now I thought I probably looked like a beach ball but me and my threesome caught the attention of a lovely lady who stopped to chat for ages. She was especially impressed by this year's mission for paws2rescue and put her hand in her pocket and gave me £5 to start my donation off. She also said I should take note of the slogan I was wearing and not judge myself so badly either, wait until I had finished my course of tablets and start again. So thank you so much Carol, I have paid in your £5 and will be starting my efforts again this Thursday 5th May. Thank you so much for the chat and your support, it really means a lot 🥰

So, today I can stand upright, and it's Daisy's 6th gotcha day so we went for a special walk out. I'm clocking 1/2 a mile towards my 22 miles. Sadly though the steroids I'm taking are making me so hungry I've been eating like a horse, so I may have to rethink and restart when I have finished the course next week, but I'll see.
