Barney's Adoption Day Fund for Charity

Barney's Adoption Day Fund for Charity

Personal message

Barney was rescued by the Maltese, French Poodle & Yorkie Rescue South Africa and adopted by me on the 7th of July 2018. 

To celebrate his adoption day and third birthday, we are raising R3000.00 for the charity. They are in desperate need of paying off their vet bills as well as needing dog food and warm blankets as the winter chill has set in.

I visited the shelter a few weeks ago to drop off a food donation and saw once again, how desperate they are for more assistance and families to go out and adopt their precious rescues. 

It broke my heart! I came home and hugged my sweet boy, driven to do a little more. Aside from raising funds for the charity, I have also asked friends, family and colleagues to bring in any food donations which I will be dropping off on the 7th of July to mark Barney's adoption day.

Their vet bill is currently in excess of R46,000.00 so every cent directed towards it will help. 


Barney is a Yorkie cross with the sweetest flirtatious spirit. He LOVES to cuddle and is always excited to meet new people. When walking at the park, he often follows people to see what they are up to. I always laugh and tell him he can't just go around adopting people. 

He is a little wiggle-bum, always wagging his tail. If you would like to see his cute little life, you can check out his Instagram

He has really made my life feel full and filled with love, now I would like to help other little doggies thrive too.

Every shelter dog deserves love and care so please help me make a small difference in their lives this winter. Any donation, big or small will help get that much closer to helping them stay warm, fed and covered by the vet.
