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.

Many Tears are delighted to announce a new initiative called Millionhairs Match Maker which we hope will help us match people with the right dog and the dog with the right people.  The location and age at the top of this page are not relevant so please do not think this only applies to dogs of a certain age or location.

We have a small team who will log requests from people who have not found a suitable dog on our website. The potential adopters will need to complete an application form and the team will attempt to find a potentially good match for them within 4 weeks. If they do, the applicant will be contacted and, if they are interested in the dog that has been suggested, their Match Maker application will be transferred to that dog. The application will then enter our normal adoption process and our usual criteria and vetting procedures will apply. However, please be aware that this does not mean that your application will have priority or that you are guaranteed a particular dog – you should still look at the site and get in touch if you see another dog you think might be suitable.

If you have trouble completing the application form please email with your name and landline phone number saying you have tried to complete the form and we will be in touch and see if we can help.


  • When completing the form you will not be able to put a breed (this will happen automatically once your "match" has been made.
  • Please put under "Reason for selecting this dog" the following information:
  1. Is there a specific breed you wish to rehome? (if not please state whether you would like a small, medium or large dog).

  2. What age range of dog would you consider?

  3. Do you have a preference towards a male or female dog?

  4. How far would you be willing to travel to adopt your new dog?

  5. Would you consider a dog with medical needs or mobility issues? (This could be something as simple as daily eye drops to something more serious. Sometimes we have dogs with 3 legs or who have difficulty walking).

  6. Would you consider a deaf or blind dog?

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.
