I don't know if this girl is a beardie or not, but these pictures will haunt me forever.
She's in a pound in Romania and has just given birth - the place is filthy.

I have made contact with a lady called Claudia who is doing her best to get her into foster care tomorrow. I shared the pics on Facebook and several of you asked me to post them here. I have sent a small personal donation towards foster and vet costs and have asked Claudia to let me know what she needs to get this lady and her baby to safety tomorrow.

Do you think they qualify for a bit of Brigade support? Sad

Belinda - the Beardie Brigade are swinging into action of FB as we speak -I am sure that there will be support from FBC'ers too

This poor little lady needs to be out of there with her puppy asap and preferably eventually into the UK.

Please keep us posted and also how to paypal some money to Claudia.

Definitely so. When you know where we can donate to the cost I am sure most of us here will contribute. Individually it may only be a little but with many it will be enough I am sure.

Blimey Shocked I turned my back for 5 mins and you lot have sprung into full force.
The Brigade at it's best.

Do you want to send money to me to send on or straight to Claudia? We won't know what the expenses are likely to be until tomorrow. They are an hour ahead of us so I don't think I'll get more replies from Claudia tonight.

Bowled over guys - chuffed and proud x

Only just seen on FB, count me in, can't send much, but if we all chip in a bit...
Has been particularly sad to see, since today is Lottie's Mum's birthday - how cruel Fate has been to this girl and her baby in comparison...but that has changed now and I just hope this poor mother can feel we care and she will be helped
Claudia sounds wonderful

I'd like to help too if you can let us know where to send money.

Been thinking with Lynn's post about keeping up the fundraising for Serbia and all the fantastic support for emergency situations like Fearghal and this poor girl and her pup that there's a possibility for fundraising towards an FBC fund which can respond quickly to help out where and when needed. Know it's a bit complicated and would need some coordination (with Paul's approval of course), but maybe some possibilites???? Belinda. as always you are doing a fantastic job, with and without your Beardie Aid hat on. Claudia sounds like another one of those very special people and I hope with a little help Mum and pup can be on their way to a better life.

Belinda, I have a suggestion. We can start collecting funds first while Claudia sort out what is needed and how to get the mom and pup out of the pound.
Whatever was being raise, I think we will have to put a trust on u to hold on to it until Claudia 'activate' you. So no time is lost while 2 things are being sorted out con-currently.

The pic is real disturbing, can I suggest we send to your pay pal or something like that?

Hi Belinda

Please count me in too for a donation.

Mum and her baby may be better there than on the street but they are not good given her predicament.

I gather there's offers of a home, whether foster or foreve, (don't have FB) but if you run out of options they can come here, no problem.

Wow wow wow.

Got up to do Bertie and beardie breakfasts and just made it to my my laptop which is almost exploding with messages - cheques coming from top beardie breeders and a zillion paypal promises. Plus offers of foster all over Europe and 2 potential homes.

I'm crying again. I am so proud.

Ok, if you want to start paypalling me send it to [email protected] and I'll keep it safe til we know whats needed, any left over can sit there, be returned or given to whatever you choose. I will supply breakdowns if anyone wants them so you know I'm not spending it on anything else.

As soon as I know more I'll be back.

You lot amaze me over and over again. <3
