If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

02-10-19 The pictures on the right is Ben when he first was rescued.  He was found nearly starving to death and in a terrible state. He has gained 4 kilos and has come here to find his forever home.  Ben is now very playful but will get spooked at loud noises. He is very friendly and happy. He likes to meet other dogs and is very eager when he sees dogs to get close to them. He will need someone to help with his confidence when out and about.  No dogs should ever go through what Ben has been through, please help him put those days behind him and give him a  bright future.

When Benji first came to Many Tears, as the pictures show,he was a terrible state, no dog should be put through that and left the underweight state se was in. He is a special boy and if any dog indicates how dogs are so forgiving even after going through trauma of any kind it's Benji.
In such a short time he has not only put on good amounts of weight and is looking worlds healthier but is hugely forgiving and it clearly shows in his demeanor.  When you first enter his kennel he is hesitant but It only takes a couple of minutes (almost straight away) and he's gently hopping up on your lap and sniffing your lips for a kiss.  He loves lower back scratches and then starts to get playful - it seems his lower back is not only nice being scratched but is his PLAY button!  He is so funny when playing, hopping and skipping about like a mini kangaroo.
Benji loves smoothes and attention at which point you'd swear he was never put through the trauma he was.  He is a real gentle soul who walks on lead ok and likes being out of the kennel yard and walking and clearly wants to just have fun and do typical normal doggy things.
Benji needs to be fed separate to other dogs at moment because he was previously so underweight he understandably may think another dog is going to take it but seeing as he has come so far in other behaviour area's I have no doubt he'll be fine with food eventually - and this will be sooner rather than later with a little direction and training.  He is not aggressive at all,just playful and sometimes tends to mouth a lot. 
Benji is a beautiful dog that deserves like any other in his position a wonderful caring forever home to make up for the undeserved trauma he has been through.  Hopefully Benji won't be long at the rescue and in his new home in no time so if you feel he is the one to join your family, i have no doubt he'll be forever grateful.

Benji is so loving with the staff here but is wary of new people, once he trusts you he doesn't want to stop loving you. He just wants cuddles and playtime.
He loves playing with his kennel mate and they have a good old game of zoomies.
Benji has been let down enough in his life, he just needs someone to stick by him through thick and thin.


The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
