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.

14-02-19 Sia has not had the best life to date, born in a country where dogs are seen as vermin then getting hit by a car and left at the side of the road for days, unable to walk and just dragging herself around.  Thankfully she did make it to a shelter in Macedonia and for a long time she was unable to walk, it must have been horrific for her to live with so many other dogs in a small area and struggle to move.  Eventually, despite the very limited medical care she received she defied the odds and one day stood up and started to walk as best she could.
Sia is strong of heart, she would not have made it this far if she wasn't.  Can you be the family who will fill her heart with love?

26-02-19 UPDATE
Sia has seen multiple vets now, as on arrival she has tested positive for TVT. This is treatable and should be curable with a course of Chemotherapy injections over three weeks and we have ordered the medications and are ready to start the treatment. Sia will need weekly blood tests and this will have to be done off site as we do not have the necessary equipment here at the rescue.
Sia went off to Vets4Pets at Cross Hands this morning as they have the equipment needed. Whilst she was there we decided to X-Ray her rear legs to investigate the limping from the road traffic accident in Macedonia. The results of the X-Rays are shocking. This dear, gentle dog has suffered massively.

Whatever your thoughts are on bringing dogs in from abroad Sia is now with us here at Many Tears and we WILL do all we can for her as we would for any of our dogs.
Sia has such a will to live, and looking at the damage she has survived and managed to walk again we are all just so emotional. How did she manage to get herself up from the road? How did she not die from internal bleeding? We do not know but her generous nature and her zest to stay alive is the most amazing thing to see, so whilst she is fighting so will we.
We will get her through the chemo as this is the priority at the moment as we need to heal her cancer. Once this is done we will then look at what to do with these horrific injuries.Sia is of course on pain relief and we ask you to keep her in your thought and prayers.


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. 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.
