Sweet Babies Need our Help!

In the last month, we had had to deal with 3 different cases involving several img_7086hundred dogs. Our shelters are filled to the max, and Second Chance Cocker Rescue has decided that while rescuing Cocker Spaniels in need is our mission, at the same time we need to answer the call to save these sweet puppies, and other dogs, and allow them to make room for challenges that I cannot even begin to describe. As I walked through the facility today, I felt my heart breaking at the look of sheer terror on their beautiful faces. The amazing staff is working with rescues to save as many as possible. Many lack socialization, and a few mommy’s have litters. I know it seems like a daunting task. We can only do this with your help! First, we will need foster families to step up and open your homes. I know many of you are waiting for a Cocker Spaniel of your very own, but I am hoping that perhaps you would agree to foster while we are looking for your forever Cocker Spaniel love! Second, we will need help financially to move them out of the shelter and into foster homes. Third, we will need people to transport to the foster homes. I know that we are all able to lend a hand in some way. We all are gifted in different ways, and together we can do anything! Please consider joining with us to rescue as many as possible! Today, I wanted to send out the call for help! I also realized that we can be that help! Please contact Elizabeth directly at ‭(805) 687-4674‬ to join with us! Time is running out! Thank you!


clarence-1-lo-res.jpgHi future family, my name is Clarence. If you are looking for a loving lap dog, real cuddler and pal you have found him. I love to play ball, go for walks and take rides in the car. I get along with most dogs and with children. I am a Flat Coated Retriever/Cocker mix with a full tail that is always wagging. I am being fostered in Sonora, CA.

WE DESPERATELY NEED MORE FOSTER HOMES! We are asking for people to consider opening their homes to a Cocker Spaniel in need! We can’t save lives without foster homes and donations. We still have a lot of dogs waiting for foster homes! As a foster pup-parent you get first choice to adopt! We take care of the medical, and you provide a comfy home, healthy food, and lots of love! Please contact us directly to speak with us about any questions you may have about the foster program. We look forward to speaking with you and saving more Cocker boys and girls!!

Gentleman Lukas Needs Love and a New Home

image2Meet LUKAS! This little gentleman came into our rescue as a rehome. Lukas is 3 years of age, weighs 24 lbs, is house-trained, and also dog-door trained. He knows many commands, and is very obedient. He is being treated for arthritis in his hip. He needs anti-inflammatory medication, and some acupuncture to help with discomfort. Lukas gets along well with other dogs, and is ok with cats. He would do best in an adult only home, or with older kids in a calm home. Lukas is good in a car,image1 going for walks, and is truly an angel boy! He loves playing and running outdoors. He loves his toys, and loves to put them all in his bed with him. He has been to obedience school, and is trained to stay off the furniture. Can you find it in your heart to help Lukas with his medical treatment? He should be ready to meet his new family very soon! Get your applications in fast! Before I decide to keep him for myself! Love this boy! Fostered in Bakersfield, CA.

Casper the Friendly Cocker

MEET CASPER!! This beautiful boy was owner surrendered because there was a change in the elderly owner’s apartment policy! 

He is a 13 year old Cocker Spaniel, and he desperately needs our help! He is a perfect dog with such a sweet nature. He is about 22 lbs which is on the small side. According to his owner, Casper has been an indoor dog since he was a puppy, and is completely housebroken. He likes other dogs. He is good on a leash, and likes riding in the car. He has intermediate dog training. He has medium energy. Right now, he is very confused and desperately searching for his owner! Poor Casper! He spent his time while in the shelter scanning his surroundings the whole time. I know in time he will get used to a new family. Medical notes say he has cataracts and needs teeth cleaning. He can see, according to the Vet, so not sure to what extent the cataracts are! Please consider helping poor Casper with his medical bills. He needs a foster or even better, a new home! We could not help dogs like Casper without your help! Thank you!

Help Lady Jade to Walk Again!

URGENT: We were contacted by a family asking for help this week! A family found a Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 10.20.01 PMfemale Cocker Spaniel, and no one was claiming her. This petite little 3 year old Cocker baby, had lost the use of her back legs. She was dragging them behind her, when attempting to walk. This kind family made her a cart out of PVC pipe, and she was able to get around better. Nothing obvious showed up in her medical exam. We have had good luck with this kind of disability, and many of you may remember Yodi’s story! We have committed to taking her! She will need a major medical exam with a specialist, and hydro-therapy to help her to regain function in her back legs. She will need acupuncture as well. Surgery is also an option at this point, since the cause of her paralysis remains to be determined. We are counting on all of you to help this little angel walk again and lead a normal life! We can do this! She is simply too young to do anything else! Thank you!

A Better Life for Bocelli

IMG_6705My name is Bocelli. Look at me! I am an adorable little man! I have a beautiful black and white coat, and I am full of spunk, and I love everyone. My new vet said that I have Cushings, and he gave me medication for that.  He said, “Bocelli has had entropyion his entire life and it has severely damaged his eyes”. Entropyion is where my eye lashes curl under and rub against my eyes. He thinks I have been this way since birth. He told my foster mom that I have been in pain my whole life from it. The vet said that he will need to remove both of my eyes to stop the constant pain. I will also need a major dental cleaning and they may take some teeth out as well! Gee whiz! I hope they don’t take any more of my parts!

313069691Bocelli has been with a foster mom this past month. This is what she had to say about him.

From his SCCR foster mom: Bocelli is a little dickens and they say I am a saint! Lol! He loves to chew up my designer shoes,  hand bags and jackets….(could it be the Italian name?) Also loves paper, tissue, and cardboard! Even though he can’t see, he is able to leap like Superman onto the counter and make his own snack!

For all the neglect and pain he has suffered, Bocelli has so much love and energy to give, 313069698and is now ready for a much better life! He is six years young, pretty much housebroken and good with everyone he meets!

Bocelli is in need of a forever home and medical attention. Can you please help us to give this boy a better, pain-free life? Bocelli hopes so! Thank you!
