Who could turn in a sweet soul like this, and on her birthday?! Buddy was turned in by her owners on her ninth birthday to a Southern California shelter. She was confused, scared and needed help! We saw this love muffin and knew we had to spring her out of there ASAP. Thanks to our supporters we were able to put her on the freedom train!
When we got her to our vet we found Buddy has a large tumor on her bottom, a mammary tumor, and another on her hip. She also has a cherry eye and severely infected ears. On a good note, her teeth are pretty good for a nine year old!
Miss Buddy, or Miss Bee (Bee-u-ti-ful!) as we’ve been calling her, is as sweet as they come. Not a mean bone in this gentle soul’s body. She must have been fed a little too much, as she now needs a lot of exercise and a low calorie diet to get her in shape. Fortunately, she loves her walks! Once her medical issues are addressed, she will be ready for a forever home. In the meantime, any help toward her medical care, large or small, is much appreciated!
Sweet Miss Bee thanks you all!

Bella Rose and Brando both came in with quite an attitude. Meg, our transporter warned us that Brando tried to attack both her and her husband. Bella didn’t want to be touched and would snap at anyone who tried to pet her, and any dogs that came close got the same treatment. We started their socialization training as soon as they were cleared by the vet. We got them used to other dogs by sending them out every day to play in play groups with 4 to 5 dogs. Carolyn and her staff worked with them daily until the rough edges started to come off. Brando was the
quickest to turn into a love machine. When they were ready, we moved them to a foster home where their training continued. They got to sleep on the bed, cuddle on the couch and take walks learning to meet and greet new people. Basically they learned to be charming, sweet kids. They are now ready to be adopted and we couldn’t be prouder of them.
Brando is a black male, 4 years old, small, housetrained, good with other dogs, 4 yrs old. Bella Rose is white and reddish, 7 yrs old, 30 lbs, house trained and good with cats and dogs. Both are being fostered in Santa Barbara, CA. They are hoping they will have their forever homes soon!
Just think how close to being euthanized they were when we agreed to take them. Please support our work so we can keep rescuing the Cockers that need us. Thank you!

Meet Lili! Lili is a 10 year old, sweet little chocolate Cocker Spaniel. Lili was left at the
Bend, Oregon humane society by her family, because they claimed that she was sick. The Humane Society didn’t find anything wrong with her, except that she needs a dental badly. She has a lot of rotten teeth. We agreed to take her after we found a foster for her in Eugene, OR. We could use some help paying for her dental bill which will be close to $1000. If you are interested in adoption, or in helping Lili, please contact Elizabeth for details! We appreciate your help, and so does Lili!

JAKE STILL NEEDS OUR HELP! Jake was surrendered by owner for euthanasia for being too
old! That hurts our ears to hear, but thanks to your donations we stepped right up and pulled this sweet boy to safety.
Jake had his vet visit last week. He is scheduled for a dental and a bilateral eye ablations because he has glaucoma. His nails were so bad they were growing into his pads. We took care of that right away. Jake’s current medical care will bring in costly vet bills of at least $1,500. Anything you can donate will
help us give him the care he deserves.
We found a temporary foster but are still in need of a foster for this boy. If you are interested place fill out an application or call us at 805 687 4674. Thank you!

Molly here! I would like to invite our SCCR friends and supporters to join us for our February Fundraiser: COINS FOR COCKERS
Simply get a large jar, bottle, or can. Download our Coins-For-Cockers jar label here to attach to your jar. Ask for your friends, family, or favorite organization to help fill your container with as many coins as you can collect! Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, workplace, school, or simply put it in your office while you work! After two months of collecting coins, you will cash in your coins and send a check to SCCR. If you would like to raise funds for a certain pup in need of medical care, we can assist you with getting a picture and bio for your group. Please help us to help the pups that SCCR is currently caring for! Contact us if you have any questions! Thanks again for all you do for the pups we rescue!

In some of the worst weather conditions imaginable, a good samaritan came across two senior dogs left outside with snow on the ground. This same person delivered them to a shelter in a nearby town. Our newest volunteer, and adopted mom of Mimi, saw them appear in a Facebook posting and decided to leap into action to help! She talked her local shelter into allowing her to foster the bonded pair. She then got in touch with Second Chance Cocker Rescue, and asked us if we would be willing to pull them, and take them under our wing. We talked to the shelter and got permission to take them into SCCR. The Cocker Spaniel, whose name is Smokey, needs immediate eye surgery due to Glaucoma, and a possible injury to the other eye as well. The other dog, Clover was given assistance with her dental issues through the shelter. We want to thank Barbara at the local shelter for being so easy to work with and for offering to take care of little Clover’s dental. Lin will continue to foster and to assist with medical care. A huge thank you to Lin for her caring heart.
Lin’s report on both dogs: Smokey is so sweet! And very loving, even enduring excruciating pain, from his eye issue, and possible frostbite. He more than likely saved little Clover’s life, by sheltering her small body from the snowstorm. Smokey can hear very well even though he is nearly blind. His bonded buddy Clover is deaf, but is able to see. Clover is dear and gentle little female terrier who watches out for her friend Smokey. He does the same for her! 12 year old Smokey weighs about 36 lbs. Little Clover weighs about 16 lbs and is about 9 years of age.
We are asking for help with their medical care. Medical bills are likely to be ongoing and expensive. Both Smokey and Clover are now very well cared for, in a safe and warm home with Lin for now. It is such a blessing to see the outpouring of love and support for these two rescued pups! Thank you!

This poor guy was turned in by his owners last week as a “euth request.” Fortunately, the shelter did not deem him a candidate. An amazing woman got him out of the shelter, and is taking care of him. SCCR has offered to make him one of our Sanctuary Dogs.
Meet Dodger. He is a purebred, black, 14 year, adorable, sweet old guy.
Dodger needs to get some meat put back on his bones; he’s really, really skinny. The family that dumped him said he was incontinent. His left eye is completely white with a caratact. His teeth are in terrible condition. His nails are overgrown, and his ears are smelly and matted. He hasn’t been taken care of in a very long time.
Dodger will be visiting our vet to see what needs to be done.
We are able to help dogs like Dodger, who may get passed up on because of their age, thanks to our supporters. We are also able to provide medical care for these dogs for their entire lives through our Sanctuary Program. Any donations you can provide, large or small are so appreciated. Dodger is already wagging his tail with gratitude!
Just as our Los Angeles Dodgers are having a winning season, it looks like this sweet boy named Dodger will too!
