Please Help Me Heal My Ears!

Lovey

URGENT! Gentle, sweet Lovey needs ear surgery on both ears as soon as possible! This little senior lady has had chronic ear issues that were left mostly untreated, until she came into the SCCR Sanctuary Program. It has come to that point for Lovey, that we either go forward with this ear procedure, or we will be forced to make a difficult decision because of her poor quality of life going forward. We are going to use a surgeon in Ventura, CA, so a foster for post-op care in that area would be deeply appreciated. The cost will be $4k to $4.5k. Lovey has reached the point now where all other options for her care have been tried and are no longer working. She is the sweetest, most darling girl,

Lovey’s ear

and we believe that Lovey deserves to have a painless and comfortable life, surrounded by a family that loves her. Won’t you join with us to give Lovey the gift of comfort, in her senior years ahead? No gift is too small! Please help us to help Lovey!

 

Tommy Boy – So Close to Regaining his Sight

PUPDATE: Tommy Boy is getting close to getting his sight restored! Our estimate for surgery was $5,000, and we are now approximately $1,500 from our goal! The estimate does not include post-operative care, medication, or transportation. We would not be able to give Tommy Boy this gift, if it were not for our many loyal and devoted donors. Tommy Boy was not able to adjust as most dogs do, to his vision loss. Tommy has spent the last year crying, bumping into walls and other obstacles, howling at night, and feeling lost and alone. Tommy spent the first 8 years of his life locked in a kennel being used as a breeder. He had very little social interaction. Tommy is the sweetest little guy you will ever meet, despite his sad beginning. It is our dream to witness Tommy Boy romping and playing in the sun with his friends and pack-mates some day soon. Will you please consider helping to cover the remaining balance for his eye surgery? I know we can do this! We are so close to making this gentle boy’s wish come true! 

Best Friends Forever

My name is Bindi, and my little sister is Blackie. We are looking for our forever family together. We are excited to begin our search! Following, is a list of requirements that we feel are very important to our happiness:
… lots of treats!
… lots of kisses!

… cuddles every day!
… belly-rubs daily!
… long walks every day!
… staring at us adoringly (very important)!
… we are adopted together! Please do not ask if we can be separated! WE CAN’T!!!
… extra treats!
… take us wherever you go (that’s from Blackie!) (little sisters can be so annoying).
… tell us you love us every day!
… treats before bedtime.
… let us sleep with you, in the middle, on a pillow.
… no more than 5 pictures of us daily (good luck with that one).
… let me fall asleep with a treat (optional).
… this list is subject to changes and may be negotiated (good luck with that too).

Love, Blackie and Bindi

Meet best friends Blackie (age 9 months), and Bindi (age 1 & 1/2 years old). Both young girls have been together their whole lives and are searching for a forever family together. They are bonded and yet they are spunky, fun-loving girls that are always sweet and loving to everyone they meet! Both are spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats. Both girls are healthy and have a pedigree. Bindi has narrowed pupils but can play catch, and sees quite well. Both are very small at less than 20 lbs. Both ladies have mellow, sweet personalities, and they love hanging out with their people, going for long walks, and cuddling on your lap. Both are ready to meet their new forever family! Could you be the family they are waiting for? Blackie and Bindi sure hope so! Get your applications in fast! They will not last long! Fostered in Bakersfield, CA.

Even with the healthy dogs we rescue, there is still a lot of work that goes into getting them ready to be adopted: vet checkups, vaccinations, microchipping, feeding, fostering, training. We can’t keep doing what we’re doing without your help! Please consider making a donation. Thank you!

 

Tommy Boy’s Wish to See Again

IMG_3013My name is Tommy Boy, and I need your help. I am not sure why I have not been able to find my forever family yet? I have tried as hard as I could to be a good boy, and people tell me that I am the sweetest boy ever! I agree with that, but because I recently lost my sight, I am not as happy as I used to be. I run into walls, and get lost (inside) easily. I have accidents in the house if I can’t find my way outside. I cry a lot because I am scared all the time, unless someone is with me, and I know that I am not alone. I sometimes howl at night, when it’s really quiet and dark, because I can’t find my foster peeps! I spent the first part of my life in a small kennel used for breeding. I think that is why I really, really, like being with someone. I understand that I am a pup that needs a lot of work, and I totally get it. I just can’t adjust to being blind, and after 2 years of this, I am about to give up, to be honest. I feel like I’ll never find a family to love me in this condition. My IMG_3026quality of life is not what it should be. I am asking my SCCR friends for a huge favor? I am begging you to help me see again! I think I could find a place to call my own if I could see! Other than being sad, because I can’t see, I am the sweetest soul! I love everyone I meet, including kids and other dogs. I am already neutered, mostly house-trained, up to date with shots, and good with cats!!! I am still active, and I am a playful and loving pup! I am otherwise quite healthy. I will make someone very happy if only I can see again. I know I am asking a lot of my friends at SCCR, but because they all love me, they are trying to help me. Can you find it in your heart to help me be a happy boy again? I sure hope so!!!
Love, Tommy Boy

The surgery to restore Tommy Boy’s sight will cost about $5,000 dollars. Tommy will also need to stay with someone living close to the doctor in the San Carlos/San Jose, CA area while recovering. Every donation, large and small will help get us closer to this goal. Whoever adopts this little love-bug will NOT be disappointed! We all love this gentle little soul!

A Buddy in Need

This handsome Cocker named Buddy’s mom is an elderly woman with apparently no family around.  She ended up in the hospital and animal control was asked to get him.  After animal control picked him up and held him for awhile, they contacted SCCR and asked us if we could find him a new home, as his owner would not be able to care for him any longer. Thanks go out to the Placer County Animal Services for carrying about the well-being of Buddy and getting in contact with SCCR.

Buddy has a great disposition and seems to be friendly with everyone he meets. He previously lived with a cat and chickens.  He is doing great at his new foster home with his doggie roommates.  As his foster mom says, he doesn’t act 13 yrs old, as claimed by the shelter.  He is very playful, and made her play ball with him for 1 1/2 hrs last night.  His current foster home is in Stockton, CA.

Buddy was a mess, and needed grooming.  He will need to be checked out at the vet and will definitely need dental work done. We are able to keep rescuing the young, old and in need because of donations, large and small. Can you help with Buddy?

Thank you for your support for Buddy and all the dogs we rescue, rehome and rehabilitate. We couldn’t do it without you!

Maggie’s Second Chance

Maggie’s mom and dad passed away recently, and she needed to find another forever family! Maggie was very sad, and missed her dad so much. Yvonne fell in love instantly with her picture! Maggie was transported to her new home in San Francisco.


Update on Maggie: Hi Debra, we had a good night and she has definitely settled … Only kidding about not liking the face washing – I LOVE IT!! Maggie ate her dinner and is now on to breakfast and a couple of long walks today. Right now she’s beside my desk on HER chair looking out the window… but there is no more whining or crying… Maggie is now as calm as a cucumber. Hugs Yvonne! 

We keep doing what we do, thanks to our village. Maggie is a great success story, but there are many dogs that are still in need. We continue to rescue, rehome and rehabilitate with the help of volunteers and donors. Please consider making a donation. Thank you!
