18-07-20 IN MEMORY OF THE TAMWORTH 5 DOGS
Today we received a wonderful donation with the saddest story behind it. A while ago 5 dogs were in the care of a dog boarder but they never returned home to their owners. It is believed that the dogs overheated and all passed away. A fundraiser raised money for the dogs but the dogs were not recovered. The owners of the dogs, April, Liz and Becky decided to share the funds between rescues of their choice. We are very touched to receive £300 today but offer our heartfelt condolences and send much love to April, Liz and Becky, we are so sorry for their tragic losses, we are so grateful you could think of other dogs in need at such a difficult time.
We would like to keep Maggie, Pablo, Charlie, Ralph and Jack in our thoughts today.

23-06-20 CASSIE AND BRYONY'S SLEEPOVER
Huge thanks to Cassie and Bryony for organising their kennel sleepover on Saturday 20th June. They spent 24 hours in a kennel with only occasional dogs for company, plus a goat! They performed challenges and answered animal related quiz questions to earn luxury items such as pillows, an air bed and snacks and had to learn new tricks too!
Challenges also included the hot chilli sauce challenge, immersing themselves in cold water in the morning and honorary guest, fellow staff member Joyce was challenged to have a bucket of icy water over her head to raise more money. Joyce was a great sport and willingly accepted the challenge, which was broadcasted live on social media!
As well as these amusing tasks which were full of fun, the ladies also experienced the extreme isolation and loneliness whilst in the kennels.Both usually busy, on the go and active, both Cassie and Bryony felt the frustration of being restricted, overlooked and limited on their freedom. A stark reminder of what the dogs go through when they arrive at the rescue and also what many, many humans endure when they are feeling lonely and isolated from society.
We really appreciate Cassie and Bryony sharing their experiences with us, having fun and raising money towards a new anaesthetic machine for the vet surgery at Many Tears. They reached their target and even went over it!
We are so grateful to everyone who has followed their journey and supported them to help them raise money for Many Tears. I am sure your support was reassuring to them as well as a great fudraiser. They raised an amazing £4445 with the promise of a cheque to the value of £500 so that's £4945!
THANK YOU !!
