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!!
