Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I’m sure most of you are aware of my love for animals. I‘ve followed Many Tears Animal Rescue for sometime now and the work they do looking after the less unfortunate animals in this country is nothing short of amazing. After running my first marathon 3 years ago I‘ve decided to take the next step into running my first Ultra Marathon. I will be taking part in the Manchester to Liverpool 50 mile Ultra on the 19th April 2019, this will be a massive challenge for me. When it gets tough out there and i’ll feel like i can‘t crawl let alone run I’m sure the motivation of raising money for these lovely animals and this wonderful charity will do nothing short than spure me on.
Any donations will be greatly appreciated however great or small, every penny really does count to help these animals and the lovely people that care for them on a day to day basis.
Please see a little information on Many Tears below.
Many Tears Animal Rescue (MTAR) is based in Carmarthenshire, Wales but has dogs in foster homes throughout the UK. We take in and rehome primarily ex-breeding dogs who are no longer required; those on "death row" in the pounds and those whose owners are no longer able to keep them.
We are a unique rescue in that the majority of our dogs are ex-breeders and many have never seen the outside world before. With the help of our staff, fosterers and other volunteers we provide a special and loving environment to help all our dogs adapt and find permanent, loving new homes. All potential adopters are interviewed and homes vetted and we do our utmost best to find the right home for each dog. The rescue has grown considerably since it first opened and now homes in excess of 3,000 dogs a year.
All our dogs are spayed/neutered, micro chipped, inoculated and wormed but in addition to this we get many dogs in need of specialist veterinary care. Some of the most frequent problems we encounter are dogs who arrive here with eye and heart problems, along with those with liver shunts and joint problems. Any treatment is required is financed by donations to the rescue which enable us to ensure each dog receives the specialist care it needs.
