We are proud to support Many Tears Animal Rescue. We have collaborated with them and, in a poll, their followers chose a Baby Powder scented candle (because that's what they smell like when they come back from the groomers) called Pampered Pooch.
£5 of every Pampered Pooch candle sale will be donated directly to Many Tears.
Many Tears Animal Rescue (MTAR) is based in Carmarthenshire, Wales but has dogs in foster homes throughout the UK. We take in and rehome primarily ex-breeding dogs who are no longer required; those on "death row" in the pounds and those whose owners are no longer able to keep them.
We are a unique rescue in that the majority of our dogs are ex-breeders and many have never seen the outside world before. With the help of our staff, fosterers and other volunteers we provide a special and loving environment to help all our dogs adapt and find permanent, loving new homes. All potential adopters are interviewed and homes vetted and we do our utmost best to find the right home for each dog. The rescue has grown considerably since it first opened and now homes in excess of 3,000 dogs a year.
All our dogs are spayed/neutered, micro chipped, inoculated and wormed but in addition to this we get many dogs in need of specialist veterinary care. Some of the most frequent problems we encounter are dogs who arrive here with eye and heart problems, along with those with liver shunts and joint problems. Any treatment is required is financed by donations to the rescue which enable us to ensure each dog receives the specialist care it needs.
In 2004 Sylvia and Bill Van Atta bought a property called Cawdor Kennels in Carmarthenshire, Wales. The previous owners had a yard with kennels used for show dogs and they used these kennels to open their new rescue called Many Tears Animal Rescue. Originally the rescue was set up as a Not For Profit Company but in November 2020 Many Tears Animal Rescue became a registered charity. (No: 1192227).
Both Sylvia and Bill have a long history of animal rescue - particularly Sylvia who has set up and worked in rescues in both the UK and USA. They have witnessed many sad situations and shed many tears over dogs in terrible situations and hence the name Many Tears Animal Rescue.
Although Many Tears is based in Wales it has dogs in foster homes throughout the UK. We take in and rehome ex-breeding dogs, those from pounds, others whose owners are no longer able to keep them and, when we have space, we help rescues overseas
