Many Tears Animal Rescue (MTAR) is based in Carmarthenshire, Wales but support dogs in foster homes all throughout the UK.
They are a unique organisation who predominantly re-home ex-breeding dogs. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous breeders that discard dogs once they can no longer breed. Luckily, Many Tears are there to save these dogs and help them find a new home.
Whilst ex-breeding dogs are most common, they rescue those who are on 'death row' at local dog pounds and also take those in whose owners cannot take care of them anymore.
Figures have shown that more than 3.2 million pets were bought during lockdown. Since the lift of lockdown and restrictions eased, many dogs have been abandoned by their owners and charities have seen a huge influx in unwanted pups. What makes this situation even more heart wrenching is, dogs are such innocent, loyal creatures who want a loving forever home. It can be traumatising for the dog to be passed around to various places and even abandoned by those they love.
We must remember that dogs are family and every action we take on their life, has a dramatic impact on their wellbeing. Adopting or fostering a dog is a big decision and should be one that is thought about thoroughly before taking the step.
