Sponsor A Spaniel – Hailey


Hailey is one of the 14 dogs we have in boarding right now.

This little girl is full of energy. She will thrive in a female only home where she can be the center of attention. No other dogs or kids for this girl. She needs a patient person who is willing to put in the time and effort to train her and help Hailey become the best dog she can be.

Please consider donating to Hailey’s boarding costs while we are all in quarantine.
We are accepting applications for Hailey’s adoption as well. We’d love to find a forever home for her to go to once all of the restrictions are lifted.

You can PayPal us.

Sponsor a Spaniel Sunday

Twinkie has been with SCCR since March, 2019 and he has been waiting way too long for his forever home!

Twinkie adores spending quality time with his special person. Twinkie is a very sweet boy who loves people. He has a little trouble seeing and hearing as he’s gotten older, but that doesn’t stop him. He would do best as an only dog in a calm home. Twinkie is about 11 years old now and is eligible for our sanctuary program.

Twinkie is one of the 14 dogs we have in boarding right now. If you can help sponsor Twinkie during this COVID-19 quarantine, we’d greatly appreciate it. Every donation of $50 or more will get a photo of Twinkie as a thank you. (To get your photo, please make sure you note your donation is for Twinkie and send us your address.)

SCCR Update

Nurse Ginger

Hi friends! We just want to take a moment to touch base with everyone and let you all know what’s going on with Second Chance Cocker Rescue right now. Currently our volunteers are all doing their part to stay safe at home and hope that our SCCR friends are doing the same. We appreciate your support and understanding during this difficult time.

In accordance with the guidelines set forth by numerous county and state health officials, we are placing a hold on moving any dogs from their current locations. This includes adoptions, fosters, and any incoming dogs (both owner surrenders and shelter pulls). Emergencies will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

During this time, we will have 14 dogs in boarding while waiting for their forever homes. This includes our 4 medical needs dogs, Heidi, Blair (these two girls were in our last post), Theodore, and Winston.

Winston is struggling with a nasty case of giardia. Poor guy is feeling really unwell and we are doing everything we can to get him healthy again.


Theodore has a mystery fungal issue that we are treating. When he was getting a haircut, we noticed a lump on his chest. We got it looked at and the contents the vet aspirated from it came back as fungal. Unfortunately all of the tests we’ve run have come back negative. We are making sure to be extra thorough and we are doing everything to find out what is going on with Theodore. On top of all of this, the poor guy is eating like crazy and not gaining weight. What a medical puzzle he is!


All of our dogs will continue to receive exceptional care and love. If you can help at all with our $2,800/month boarding bill (which includes food, training, vet visit transportation, socialization, and endless love) or our medical bills for Heidi, Blair, Theodore, or Winston, please click on the donate button. Every little bit helps.

For all of the other dogs in our care, we will continue to accept foster/adoption applications and will continue to screen them per our usual process. Waitlists will be compiled for dogs and we will resume showing dogs once restrictions are lifted. If you would like to submit your application please do so via this link.

Thank you all so much for everything you do to help us continue to save Cocker Spaniels!!! We love you all!!! Stay safe and well!!

Heidi and Blair Need Your Help

Heidi and Blair are a bonded pair of sweet little girls that just came to us from Bakersfield. They need a home together ASAP.

Both girls have sever medical issues that we are addressing immediately. Poor Blair has a mass growing near her bits and is fighting kennel cough. Heidi is blind and deaf with a cherry eye in one eye and the worst ears we’ve seen in a long time. Heidi is also riddled with mammary tumors and other masses on her body. It’s clear that they have been neglected for way too long, but we are here to give them a second chance!

We are dedicated to giving these girls the best care possible. We know vet bills for these two are going to be well over $1000 and any help from our friends would be greatly appreciated.

We also would love to get these girls out of boarding and into a foster home together that will care for them while they get the care they need. Right now they are in separate boarding facilities and we would love to reunite them. Our vet in is Corona, CA, so if you live near there and need some company, please consider opening your heart and home to Heidi and Blair.

If you can foster these angels for us, please fill out our adoption/foster application.

You can also call us directly at (805) 687-4674.

Cash Needs Some TLC

Cash was living with a family for many years when he started to bite their child. They called us and we happily took him on. How do you say no to a face that cute?!

Once we met Cash, was immediately obvious what the problem was. He had very painful ear infections and one ear has a growth in it. The ears are causing him lots of discomfort and made him super cranky. He is very reactive to them being touched. Poor guy. Cash needs a dental too as his teeth are not so nice and one of his molars is broken. To make matters worse, Cash also has a huge tumor on his mouth.

Cash has a raging 5/6 heart murmur on top of all of his other heath problems. We took an x-ray to see what exactly is going on. Good news he does not have an enlarged heart. However, due to his age (14) and his significant heart murmur our vet does not suggest putting him under anesthesia for the masses or his teeth.  Cash is eating normally and it really doesn’t appear that anything is painful other than his ears.

This turned out to be a situation where we will make him comfortable for as long as we can and let him live out his last few months/years pain free. Cash is a good dog and we are dedicated to helping him live his best life in a wonderful home.

We will continue to monitor Cash’s health and would greatly appreciate any donations towards his medical care. Please give what you can. Every dollar helps. Cash appreciates it!

Meet The Second Chance Seven

Second Chance Seven

We don’t know if it is that spring is in the air or it is just hoarding season, but we had TWO different hoarding cases land in our laps last week!

First we got Bode and Daniel from a hoarding case in the Northern CA area. They are beautiful boys. Bode is 3 years old and looks like a pure bred Cocker. Daniel is an adorable 5-6 year old cocker mix. They both came from a backyard breeder who had too many dogs.

Then these precious puppies came in. How could we say no to 5 little babies in need of our love and care?!

All Cocker mixes, they are about 9 months old and from a hoarder in the Southern CA area. Paisley, Romulus and Rufus could be triplets and Sadie Girl looks just like them only black and white. Buddy looks like he was not in this litter but came at the same time as the other four. They are all beautiful, but not well socialized. They need some TLC and lots of skilled and gentle handling. We are confident that they will come around quickly and become the best dogs. They are great with other dogs, cats and kids. Buddy might be more cockapoo, but it doesn’t mean we love him any less than his “siblings”. He is a bit more fearful and will need extra patience and support. Buddy and Sadie Girl still need a foster and some help getting them the help they need to blossom.

All of these dogs are fairly healthy for the conditions they were living in. They all need a vet visit, vaccines, microchips and a spay/neuter. We are looking at basic vet bills of at least $150 times 7! That’s $1050 TOTAL!!! Some of the dogs are in boarding awaiting their foster/adoptive homes and our boarding bills are at $850 and mounting every day. We have also paid $300 in transporting fees so far. We know saving these dogs is worth every penny, but we could really use some help offsetting these costs. Please consider donating to the Second Chance Seven! They need your help to get the best start to their next chapters.

If you would like to give Bode, Daniel, Buddy, Sadie Girl, Paisley, Romulus or Rufus a loving home, please fill out our foster/adoption application.

Nothing But A Love Bug

Halley is a very special girl. When the shelter called us they said she was uncontrollable but were hoping we might be willing to try to turn her around. Of course we would! We sent one of our volunteers who is trained to deal with the aggressive kids. The staff popped her in the crate in the car and he drove her home. He managed to get her into the house where she informed him in no uncertain terms that she hated men and all other dogs. She refused to come out of her room, she rushed him when he brought food and snarled and lunged when she heard his dogs. He called me. I drove up to the house and we opened the garage so we would have a quick and quiet exit if I could get her out safely. Sure enough after a few minutes I was able to get a leash on her and walk her outside for a breath of air. Turns out women are OK….thank goodness! She popped into the car and didn’t look back. By the time we were home she was leaning into me and sniffing my hair. She slept with me and cuddled all night just like a normal dog. You would never know it was the same dog.
Reading her paperwork she was only 2 years old and had to be sedated to go to the vet or groomer her whole life. She was good at home but was terrified of men and other dogs. We had seen her reaction to them ourselves. It was way over the top. We can only guess that she had been traumatized badly in her life. Sure enough we had to Ace her to see the vet. We put her on Prozac to help with her PTSD and will work with her to recover from what ever terror she still dreams about. But under that terrified girl was a love bug that I fell hard for. She is going to be the best dog ever when she is ready to go home. Until then we will take it slowly and show her the world is a good place full of good people (men and women).
