Many Tears Animal Rescue is the third of our featured charities in honour of National Pet Month.
Many Tears Animal Rescue is a small rescue centre based in South Wales, but has dogs in foster homes across the UK. Primarily the centre takes in and re-homes ex-breeding dogs and those whose owners are no longer able to keep them.
The rescue was founded by Sylvia Van Atta, after her work with the Humane Society in the United States left her determined to introduce no-kill policies to shelters, and to help every dog or cat that crossed her path find a loving forever home. The Rescue's name comes from the many tears Sylvia has shed for those animals she was unable to save, and is dedicated to their memory.
As well as Many Tears in the UK, Sylvia has founded Brook Cottage Animal Rescue and Last Chance Animal Rescue in Edenbridge, Kent. She also helped build Elait Loves Animals, a rescue centre in Israel, as well as running Harmony Rescue in Tucson, Arizona.
Sylvia and her team of volunteers have helped find suitable, loving homes for a great many dogs and cats, many of whom are especially vulnerable, insecure, or have been mistreated in the past.
