YEAR END GIVING

As we say good bye to 2018, we want to thank all of our wonderful SCCR friends from the very bottom of our hearts for all of your support and generosity this year!

With the help of your many donations, we were able to pay for several life-saving surgeries, provide much needed dentals, spays, neuters, and other important medical procedures for the 160+ dogs that came into our rescue this year! Plus we were able to help pay for the daily medical needs of our beloved sanctuary dogs! We could not do all of this without your help!

As we look towards 2019, we are hoping to break ground on our much dreamed about Cocker Sanctuary! We are looking for donations towards our building fund so that we can build a relaxing and comfortable home for dogs who would be without a home of their own. You too can help make this dream a reality! Donate today and your tax-deductible donation will go towards providing a forever home for cocker spaniels in need.

Medical Pups Hoping For A New Start In The New Year

Meet Kawaii and Buddy Blue! Two of our newest Second Chance Cockers!

Kawaii truly is the embodiment of her name! “Pretty” in Japanese, Kawaii is such a pretty girl inside and out, she’s just in need of a little extra TLC so that she can really shine!

Coming to us from VCAS, Kawaii was turned in as a stray with a massive tumor hanging from her belly. It’s the biggest tumor I’ve seen this year! She’s is also severely matted and in need of a full grooming. Her poor condition does not dull her sunny and sweet personality! Kawaii LOVES belly rubs and just goes crazy for pets and cuddles. Her full tail happily wags when you talk to her and tell her what a pretty girl she is! Kawaii has been non-reactive to both cats and other dogs while at the shelter. I got to visit her on Christmas and she was a delight to play with. She is going to be a wonderful family dog!

Kawaii is being pulled from the shelter tomorrow and will be going directly to Dr. Card on Friday for her mass removal surgery. We are currently in need of donations to help cover her estimated $1,200 surgery and a loving foster home for her to go to by this Saturday at the absolute latest.

If you would like to help our sweet Kawaii, please call us directly at (805)558-0100 or fill out an application.

 

Buddy Blue is a sweet boy who is also in desperate need of our help!

Sweet Buddy Blue is just a little train wreck. Buddy is only about 10 years old, but due to his condition, looks so much older. He was pulled from the shelter several years ago and given to relatives by his adopter thinking that he would help them get over the loss of their other dog. Unfortunately for Buddy, he didn’t get the care and medical attention that he needed. His old adopter asked us to help step in and save his life.

Buddy Blue is scheduled to see our vet next week, but we would like to get him out of his current home and into a foster home urgently. Buddy would do best in a home with dogs that are the same size as he is or maybe a little bigger. He is afraid of small dogs. Buddy has not been tested with kids or cats. What Buddy needs most of all is a loving family who will help him heal and get on the road to a healthy and happy life. Buddy is a loving boy who likes to just chill with his people. Need a Netflix binge buddy? Buddy Blue is the boy for you!

Buddy Blue is scheduled for an exam on 01/03, but we are sure that it will lead to a few procedures for him. If you would like to help cover his medical expenses, please donate. Every dollar helps!

If you would like to help foster our Buddy Blue, please call us directly at (805)558-0100 or fill out an application.

 

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!

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!

Never Too Old for a Second Chance

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!

Saved from the Cold

image1In 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.

image2We 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!

 

A Third Chance for Honey Boo Boo

This little girl has been through a lot recently. In the last 4 months, poor Honey Boo Boo went from having a happy home of 10 years, to being abandoned at the groomer’s with her brother Luke.

Luke was adopted right away, but Honey was not, because people thought she was too old. Second Chance Cocker Rescue could not say no to rescuing sweet Honey. She was adopted to a nice lady, who also had an English Setter. Sadly, a month ago, Honey’s new owner committed suicide, and both dogs were taken to the CCSPCA shelter.
Several volunteers kept in constant contact, and waited patiently until the dogs were

released. Finally, we got the call that Honey Boo Boo would be released and we needed to come ASAP. Needless to say, Honey’s fate was finally decided. A wonderful foster family rushed to the shelter and picked her up! Her adopted brother, Billy, went to a rescue for Setters.

After all that Honey had endured, she finally ended up in a loving, happy home that she so deserved.  SCCR actually gave Honey her third chance.  They say the third time’s a charm, right? Congratulations to the Sharp family on your new addition. We wish you many happy years together.  Be happy, sweet Honey!
So that SCCR can continue to support other dogs in need, especially seniors like Honey, we need your support. Every dollar helps! We never want to see a dog rejected because they are deemed “too old.”
