Melksham couple rescue neglected puppies

A MELKSHAM couple who foster dogs were among 100 people who turned up to rescue dogs from a puppy farm in Wales. 

Catherine and Arthur Cooper are members of the Many Tears Animal Rescue Service that 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.

The Melksham couple regularly foster dogs before helping rehome them.

Recently they were informed about a puppy farm where the owner had died, leaving the  65 puppies behind and all of whom were in a  bad way. Catherine said, “We saw on a message board on the Many Tears website that an owner had passed away leaving many puppies behind. We thought we could help and headed to Wales to find 65 puppies in a bad way.  Many of whom needed to be vaccinated, de-flead and fed. Amazingly around 100 people turned up to offer assistance and many of those dogs will be rehomed.

“We decided to foster two of them, Oscar and Otto, and brought them back to Melksham. They are wonderful dogs and would make a great addition to a family if we can find the right person to rehome them too.

“Anyone wishing to take Oscar and Otto on would have to go through the rehoming process that Many Tears set. They also come with a cost of £180 each, which is cheap considering they have been neutered micro-chipped, vaccinated and de-flead.”
