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.

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!

Rees Sounds for the donation of a great tannoy for the day.
Emerald Vets for sponsoring the trophies this year
Tussie Mussie Flowers, Haverfordwest who donated beautiful bouquets for our guest judges.
My gratitude to our judges this year who were Welsh rugby star Ross Moriarty, actor Liam Fox and Jojo Entwistle who had the very difficult challenge of judging our fun dog show and found it immensely difficult to pick amongst all the beautiful dogs in their classes. Liam and Jojo also acted as our commentators and DJs and did a fantastic job at announcing classes, making show announcements, providing general entertainment and acting as DJs playing great music which was so well received by al. They chose great songs for musical sits was a huge success enjoyed by all and the decision between the final two dogs was a very close run thing.
Thanks also to the team of car park attendants from Admiral Group who did a marvellous job and got everyone parked quickly which was invaluable. My thanks also goes to my staff who came and ran stalls on their days off and to everyone who entered the dogs in the classes and took part in the scurry and temptation alley which gave the dogs a chance to let of steam and Caerphilly and District Agility Team who once again put on wonderful agility demonstrations which were very entertaining to watch and also gave people the chance for their dogs to have a go at agility.
Finally thank you to all our visitors who came to have a wonderful fun day out and support the rescue, many of whom brought their dogs - it was truly wonderful to see them groomed, glowing with health and happy with their proud owners - at the end of the day, it's what its all about!
A big THANK YOU to every one of you.
