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.

05-10-19 Bonita is a 5 year old female Cocker Spaniel who has come to us from a breeder. She has come to us with sore, dry eyes which will need drops to make sure that she comfortable and pain free. She is an absolute sweetheart, and will need a lot of love and TLC to bring her out of the shell that she has hidden in her whole life. She's very shy of this new world she's been brought into, and is very nervous. She will have to go to a home with another dog to help her learn how to live in a home for the first time in her life, copy housetraining and to have a kind friend to call her own.

14-11-19 UPDATE
Bonita is a very sweet girl and a bit of a favourite with the MT staff who work on her section. She doesn't let her affected eye sight get in the way of her being independent and loves the company of people she knows. Her medication (snow tears) will need to be continued to provide relief to her symptoms of dry eye until a registered vet recommends it to no longer be used.
We are working with Bonita on her confidence to get used to walking on a lead and she is making steady progress. She has taken some steps on her own already with Emma and myself on her last two outings and with some time and help from her friends I'm sure she will pick it up very soon. She relies on her sense of smell and hearing to adjust to her new surroundings but does very much like to meet new people when out.
Bonita will make a great companion for someone who doesn't have a dog at home already but they will need to be prepared to help her with her house training and be there for her most of the day as she has never lived in a home before. She will be suitable for someone who is retired and looking for a new life long friend or a settled family with a relaxing environment for her to feel safe in.
Bonita would love to find her forever home as soon as possible so she can experience her first Christmas with the people who will love her.


PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

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.
