Daisy’s Surgery Update

 

Daisy wants to thank all of our wonderful SCCR friends for their love and support. Daisy had her big surgery with Dr. Card this week and she is recovering nicely. Daisy had a full spay done and the majority of her mammary tumors removed. She will have to have a second surgery to remove some lingering tumors that couldn’t be taken out this time around. Even with an incision that goes from her rib cage to her bottom, Daisy is still wagging her tail and being her happy self.

Daisy’s next surgery is going to cost us a little bit more, so please keep those donations coming in. We couldn’t give this girl, and all of our other pups, a second chance with out your generosity.

Thank you!

 

A Gentle Girl Named Babe

My name is Babe and I am searching for a new family. I thought I would be with my momma for the rest of my life, but my momma has Alzheimer’s, and is slowly forgetting to care for me. I like to think I have been a faithful and loving companion to my momma for all 11 years of my life, but the assisted facility thinks it is time to share my love with a new family. My human momma unfortunately has Alzheimers and it is the worst thing ever, to know that someone loves you so much, but just can’t seem to remember who I am or that I need care. My family has made this difficult decision to help me find a loving family that will care for me for the rest of my life. I am a gentle girl who would do best with an older family that can take me for walks a few times a day and help me shed a few pounds to get down to a healthier weight. I have never really been around cats or younger children, but I do ok with other dogs. I am spayed, up to date on my shots, and in general good health for my age.

Would you consider being my final forever family and promise to love me like my momma wants me to be loved? I am being fostered in the Bay Area of Northern California. Please get your applications in fast! I am a keeper!

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!

 

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!

Building A Dream

We are excited to start moving forward with our goal of building a Cocker Spaniel Sanctuary. We want to expand our senior dog sanctuary program and have a place we img_2603are proud to have you come visit and volunteer.

IMG_2606The Second Chance Cocker Sanctuary will house senior Cockers in our Bed and Biscuit area, we will have a section for dogs who need training for aggression or can not be adopted because they are too dangerous, and finally we will have an adoptable dog area for dogs waiting for a foster or adopter to find them. We will continue to use foster homes as the base for our adoptable dogs, as they learn so much from living with our foster families that makes them more adoptable quickly. For our permanent residents, we will make a comfortable living area with what ever it takes to give them a good quality life. We will have paid staff living on site and lots of volunteers to help with the work load. We will need a work team of volunteers when we purchase our property to help build the dog’s buildings and create our Sanctuary.

IMG_2605The first thing we need is a committee of dedicated volunteers to make this dream come true…Lawyers, Realtors, business people, project managers, fundraising, researchers, etc…they will be pricing property, getting building estimates, putting together business plans, designing the theme, leading the fundraising and their goal is to make our dream a reality.

We need to decide on a location. It has to be easy to get to, not far from a major city, has lots of tourism and inexpensive land. We are looking for at least 5 acres with a house or mobile home and garage or barn on it. One location we are looking at is Tuolumne County in the Gold Country (pictured above) where we can build an old fashion gold mining town theme. Thanks to a generous gift from a supporter last year we are starting out with $30,000 in our building fund. We will need a min of $50,000 for a down-payment.

 

If you are interested in learning more about helping make this dream come true with a donation to our building fund or volunteering tomorrow  make it happen contact Elizabeth at 805-687-4674. Help us save more senior Cockers. There are too many getting dumped in our shelters every day.

Rescued! Cocker Roaming the Streets for Six Months

URGENT: This one to two year old Cocker boy needs a foster or adopter ASAP! This baby

boy was spotted running up and down a busy street in Bakersfield< CA for approximately 6 months before he was caught. He has been starved, and he is very thin. He is terrified, and has obviously been traumatized by his experiences. He is eating now, and was taken to a vet to be evaluated. He was neutered and the vet gave him his shots. Vet stated that he appears to be as healthy as he could be with no home, and scavenging for food for months in the garbage behind several restaurants nearby. Many people attempted to trap him but finally a young woman staked the area out for 3 days to catch him, and finally succeeded. She is calling him Levi.

This little boy needs a loving and patient foster or adopter to teach him to trust again. A calm home, lots of food, and time to heal is what he needs! Won’t you help Levi to begin a new life, and to learn that humans can be trusted? He is improving, but needs a calm home to settle into. He is very smart and learns fast. Please consider a donation for his medical expenses and his rehabilitation! We could not help poor dogs like Levi without your support. He is currently in Bakersfield, but needs a foster of adopter ASAP!

Lili – Our Cocker up North needs Help

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!
