I love Many Tears rescue. They're every waking moment is consumed with ensuring the rescue, safety, health & love of animals...yes, it's busy and overwhelming with how much they have to do because their every consideration is and always will be the animals. We will be ever grateful to them for enabling us to adopt our beautiful dog...

We have visited MT on 3 occasions, were allowed to take our chosen dog for a walk to see how she behaved out of kennels and were shown round by really friendly staff every time. The staff and volunteers all knew the history of their dogs, were very knowledgeable about each dogs likes/dislikes and were very good when handling each dog. The facilities at the rescue centre in Llanelli are lovely, dogs have heat lamps in their kennels, lots of beds and toys and there are several sand schools where they go out to run and play. There are also lots of volunteer dog walkers. We adopted an ex-breeding GSD who has been exactly as they described and who has settled incredibly well. The assistant manager was particularly helpful and he came out to our home after the adoption to ensure everything was going ok. Can't recommend them highly enough, they were brilliant with us and all the dogs!

I applied to adopt an older dog (10 ) but was turned down as my partner and I work (full time teachers, so we generally work from 8.30-3.30). Even though we have two rescue dogs already and a dog walker who pops in each day this was deemed inadequate. I totally understand that they have to act in the best interests of a dog and am glad they thoroughly vet each home, but I believe they need to have a more open minded adoption policy if they are to help the maximum amount of dogs possible. Many more rescues are more open minded to working families and assess dogs and potential owners on an individual basis. I think having a blanket ban on working homes is very limiting and means that dogs are potentially missing out on many knowledgeable, safe and loving home.It was also clear from the emailed reply I received to my application that the assessor had not even read through my application properly, as they had missed several key details and claimed that I was also being turned down as I didn't have any existing dogs (I have two). Even if a dog would be left alone for four hours at a time in between a dog walker coming in, surely this is preferable to being in kennels? I have since gone on to adopt a third dog from a well known rescue organisation. It is a shame that I was not able to help a MTR dog as I was a big supporter of the rescue for a long time, but unfortunately I do not feel I would be able to recommend the rescue to friend or family as I do not think many people would have the chance of adopting from them!

We are very sorry you feel you were unfairly turned down for an older dog. We absolutely do not have a blanket ban on working homes and are always happy to discuss this with potential adopters but it does depend on the dog they was to adopt. We would be more than happy to discuss your application. On every reply we send via email we do say please contact us if we’ve misunderstood or you feel you’ve been unfairly turned down. We very much regret you feel unable to support or recommend us to others as you feel it’s too hard to adopt from us. We home around 2500 dogs a year.
