Fundraise for us


Got an idea to help us?

We'd love to hear from you! We greatly appreciate each and every person who fundraises for us through a range of activities. You can read more about our regular fundraising events in our monthly newsletter.

In 2017 Kate Lamb, our Patron, cycled from Bulgaria to London with a dog she adopted from Street Hearts in a trailer behind her, raising £12,000. Go to for more details.

Also in 2017 Vonnie Young paratandemed off the cliffs of Skalsko in front of a crowd of supporters. The event raised almost 4000 leva and we could not be more proud and delighted!

Street Hearts BG supporters in Bulgaria have organised charity evenings and car boot sales – to name just a few activities. Friends in the UK have also organised cake stalls at work and even sold personal items to raise money. Every penny, cent or stotinka helps, so if you can help a dog in need then please do!

Crossing bridges for street dogs

Hi, my name is Saskia and I will be running the "DSW Bruggenloop Rotterdam" which is a 15K run including 6 bridges to raise money so that Street Hearts Bulgaria can pay an unexpected and unforseen vet's bill of € 1000. The longest run I’ve ever done was 10K and did not include any bridges, so it’s a big challenge!

Emma and Anthony Smith who run Street Hearts Bulgaria have about 80 dogs in their care at the moment and as you can imagine the costs are enormous. All dogs need to be fed, there are regular visits to the vet, they need vaccinations, medication, microchips and passports. They depend on donations from the public to make all of this work.

Due to unforeseen circumstances they now have an outstanding vet bill in the amount of € 1.000,00 which is a big worry they do not need.

On the 9th of December 2018 Please HELP and get me over 6 bridges and the finish line by making a donation! Any amount you can spare is appreciated, thank you!


Car boot sales

Twice a month we attend car boot sales in order to raise money for cat neutering and also help with vet bills. These car boots massively help so if anyone has any items that they wish to donate then please contact us for collections or leave them at our vets (vet address link). Your junk may be someone else's treasure which can help an animal! Here are the car boot links, follow their pages for dates and time information.
