26-06-19 Thank you from Sylvia
Yesterday having had a very long journey collecting dogs from all over Ireland, 29 of which were passported from the South, I decided to take the early boat home. This however, meant a longer drive on the other end for us from port to the rescue but still brought me home earlier meaning the dogs were on the van for less time.
My co-driver and writer Kelly was, as always magnificent, and despite when loading dogs getting covered in shot anal glands and much more, she remained happy, helpful and smiling throughout, despite the fact that the pair of us stank!
On arrival home at 2am this morning, a HUGE amount of staff turned up voluntarily to help unload these new arrivals and settle them in to their new kennels. I have never run a rescue with more dedicated dog lovers than these guys. They all help me stay strong and you all help me go on saving lives.
THANK YOU you're all amazing.!!!!!

The photograph is of my dear brother-in-law Mick Allsopp with Jock one of his much loved dogs who started his love for West Highland Terriers. His last westie was found a wonderful forever home by Many Tears on his passing in August 2018. This compassionate, quiet man has left a very generous legacy to this wonderful rescue which was so close to his heart, knowing that they stood between love or a lifetime of misery for so many dogs. I will miss Mick very much, but like to think of him walking in Godâ€™s countryside with his dogs Jock and Mac.
You were one in a million Mick, and Iâ€™m very proud to have been part of your life.

Thank you everyone who helped organise it, stood in the cold weather and of course all those who popped some money in the tins. We are so grateful.
We had the best date of the year to hold our Swansea Street Collection on Sunday, 23 December 2018. We broke our own record and collected the awesome amount of Â£1400!!!!! We even had one MT supporter waiting in our regular spot ready to give us a donation (before we arrived or had set up) - thank you Princessâ€™s Adopter. That really boosted our enthusiasm. As usual the spirit and vibe in Swansea was heartwarming. Wonderful, kind people who gave so generously. Two ladies even bought my husband a big brolley to keep him dry. So kind. Thanks to all the volunteers, especially David with â€˜Jackâ€™ who comes all the way from Ceredigion to volunteer. Thanks to June and Rhys in Cowbridge who have done all â€˜the countingâ€™ for years now. A wonderful day.

05-01-19 EMMA, HELEN, LISA AND EMILY
We would like to say a massive thank you to Emma, Helen, Lisa and Emily who came down to groom our dogs yesterday. They were amazing! They have made such a difference to so many dogs who are now feeling much more comfortable after a warm bath and a brush, with their knots and tangles gently removed and no longer pulling at their delicate skin. They smiled all day despite being up to their eyes in water and fluff and their gentle, encouraging approach to the dogs was picked up on by the dogs who stood beautifully and enjoyed being pampered. Emma even took the time to take before and after photos and wrote updates for the dogs groomed.
Thank you so much ladies please come back again soon!
03-01-19 ALISON FOLKES
