Vet Day for Daisy May and Charlie

It’s vet day for Daisy May and Charlie.

Daisy is having SEVERAL teeth extracted along with multiple bumps removed.

Charlie is having cherry eye surgery along with having a few bumps removed and some tests done to determine why he is always panting and why his belly is so firm and distended.

In all, we are looking at a vet bill that will be close to $1,800-$2,000 for these two today.

If you are able to donate to help cover their vet bills, we would be eternally grateful. Even a few dollars helps when it all adds up.

We will keep you updated on how their procedures go! Thank you for all of your support. We couldn’t save wonderful dogs like Daisy May and Charlie without you!

Charlie is lucky enough to have a few people interested in him, but Daisy May is still looking for her forever home. We know someone out there will show this sweet little blind girl all of the love and affection she deserves. Both dogs qualify for our sanctuary program.

Both dogs are currently in Simi Valley, CA. If you would like to give either of them a loving home, please fill out our adoption application.

Charlie – Our Newest Golden Boy

Poor Charlie. His owner died and he found himself at the shelter. He hasn’t been taken care of in a long time. He deserves the best life and I know we can give that to him!

Charlie is terribly matted and has an obvious cherry eye. He also has horribly infected ears and a large wart on his other eye. Despite all that he has wrong with him, his full tail is always wagging and he is a kissy monster. Charlie is also incredibly smart! He knows all of his basic commands! This boy will be the PERFECT companion for a very lucky person!!

Charlie is 12 years old and qualifies for our sanctuary program. While we wait for a furever home, we need a foster home for him ASAP. We would like a foster home to place him in while he gets some much needed medical attention. Charlie is scheduled for a vet visit on Monday. Hopefully his cherry eye and ear infections are the worst of it. We would really appreciate some help coming his upcoming medical costs.

Charlie is neutered, house trained, unfazed by rabbits and other dogs, and loves kids (all people really). He is currently in Simi Valley, CA. Please help share this baby! He needs a loving family to help take care of him! If you would like to give Charlie a loving home, please fill out our application.

Bricks Save Lives And Honor Your Furfamily

The first order of the Memorial Bricks have come in. They are beautiful! Your purchase of a brick in honor or memorial of someone special, will help pay for the construction of a loving and peaceful Sanctuary home for Cocker Spaniels in need. In addition to helping our furry friends, your brick will have a special place in our Wall of Honor  in our memorial garden where your beloved pup, will live on forever and be a part of our legacy of rescuing with love. All the funds raised with this project will go toward building the Sanctuary.

Every 5 bricks that you order from us we can then place the order with the company that makes them so we can see what they look like and keep up on our orders.

Every brick has a story to tell. Let tell yours forever in our Meditation Garden. We will have a section just for these and we will be finding an artist to design our own wall/fountain/amazing piece of art.

Coins For Cockers

Want to donate, but don’t have much cash to spare?! We have a way you can give back with just the change in your pocket! It doesn’t take much to make a difference!

Coins For Cockers is a so simple to do and can make a huge impact for our many cocker spaniels in need. All you have to do is collect your loose change and and send it to us when you are ready. The way our family does it is to collect it, roll it, deposit it into our bank account, and then either mail a check or make a paypal donation to @secondchancecockerrescue in the amount that we collected. So easy and it adds up so quickly!

Not Just Cocker Spaniels…..

Visiting our Sanctuary is so much more than Cocker Spaniels. The Gold County has so much to offer you will need to stay a week or more to enjoy it all. Jamestown alone has an amazing Train Museum with train rides and a working round house. There are antique shops, great restaurants, hiking, events like a yearly car show and so much more. Then there is Sonora, Columbia, and the Sierra’s offer hiking, skiing, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing, camping, horse back riding, lakes, rivers, mountains and scenery that will take your breath away. Yosemite is only one hour away and Lake Tahoe two hours in the other direction.

So, come visit and stay for the best vacation you have had in years….or do like we did and stay!

Sharing The Wealth

We have so much acreage, 21 total that we decided that we should share the wealth with the community and reached out to the Rose Wolf Wildlife Rescue. This rescue raises abandoned fawns and releases them in the wild. They had been looking for a piece of property for quite a while but were not having any luck until we invited them to come see our little slice of heaven. It was a perfect match!

They are working on clearing out the dead scrubs and opening the area up for their sheds and equipment. They have fencing, sheds, and everything they need to move in and get started. Best yet they have  herd of goats that they use to feed the fawns goats milk. Those same goats can help us keep our acreage clear and help with fire prevention.

So now when you come to visit you can visit with the Rose Wolf volunteers and help feed baby fawns too while you love on our pups.

Donations for the Building Fund go straight to building the Sanctuary. Thank you for your support!
