Giving Thanks and a B&B for Seniors
Today is Thanksgiving, and we at Second Chance Cocker Rescue, have a lot for which to be thankful. To date this year, we have rescued over 1,000 dogs and we have some doggone great things planned to expand our Sanctuary Program. We are especially proud of our Sanctuary program and the ONE BIG THING we need to change is HOW MANY dogs we can help.
Here to introduce the opening of the new Bed and Biscuit area for our seniors, is our newest senior, Honey.
“Hi, Honey here. Two weeks ago, I was left at the shelter by my family. They said I was getting old and need too much care. I am only 12, for heavens sake! The next thing I know, I am on cold concrete surrounded by a lot of barking dogs. Everyone at the shelter said I was too old and no one would want me. I had just about given up when Meg from SCCR showed up and told me this was my lucky day! SCCR had decided to expand their Sanctuary Program
, and I was the first Cocker invited to live in the new Bed and Biscuit Annex in Romoland, California.
I didn’t know what a Bed and Biscuit was but wow, it’s great! It’s almost like being at home. There are comfy couches to sit on, dog beds all over the floor, a huge play area with trees and soon there will be other oldsters like me to hang out with all day. Best of all, Carolyn comes out to give me lots of love. I will have 9 more roommates soon. I can’t wait! They said I am available for a Sanctuary home, but I can stay here forever if I don’t get one. No more shelter for me, ever!
I was so grateful for this opportunity, I asked if I could be the Bed and Biscuit spokes-dog. And here I am; safe, happy and I have a great new job!
PS: I like to eat twice a day, so don’t skimp on those donations
Thanks, Honey. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Our goal is to open our new facility in January, 2016. To help make this happen, we are setting up the Bed and Biscuit Club monthly donation membership with some great incentives, including invitations to a Spring Bed and Biscuit Club Afternoon Tea and a B&B Club Fall Party. Please consider joining and help us to take the best possible care of Honey and her friends.
