Amazing Organisation #2: Many Tears Animal Rescue

We announced on Friday that IAD will be operating as a not-for-profit organisation going forwards, and that we will be donating 100% of our annual profits to two incredible organisations.

Today we would like to introduce you to the second awesome organisation we will be supporting: Many Tears Animal Rescue Centre.

Many Tears Animal Rescue is based in Carmarthenshire, Wales but has dogs in foster homes throughout the UK. They 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.

They are a unique rescue in that the majority of their dogs are ex-breeders and many have never seen the outside world before. Through the hard work of their staff, fosterers and other volunteers they have created a special and loving environment to help all their dogs adapt and find permanent, loving new homes. All potential adopters are interviewed and homes vetted and they do everything possible 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 of their dogs are spayed/neutered, micro chipped, inoculated and wormed but in addition to this they get many dogs in need of specialist veterinary care. Some of the most frequent problems they encounter are dogs who arrive with eye and heart problems, along with those with liver shunts and joint problems. Any treatment required is financed by donations to the rescue which enable them to ensure each dog receives the specialist care it needs.

Many Tears provide a unique service; and is run by two unique individuals – Bill and Sylvia Vanatta. Mr & Mrs Vanatta have personally changed the lives of tens of thousands of dogs for the better, and as a team of dog lovers it is IAD’s privilege to help them in any way that we can.
