A Bucket List for Daisy

unnamedWe got a call this week asking for our help! Little Daisy is a sweet, 9 year old cocker girl, who lives in Camarillo, CA. Daisy, sadly, does not have very long to live. She developed several cancerous mammary tumors from never having been spayed, that spread to other parts of her body. In addition to her tumors, Daisy also has eye issues, and also suffers from chronic ear infections. Her family has genuinely loved her, for her whole life. They have done all they can for Daisy, but they can no longer keep up with her medical bills, and they want to give Daisy the very best care and a loving home to spend her last days.

Daisy’s vet has stated that she may only have a year left, but we want to do all that we can for her in that short time to keep her comfortable, and happy. Any donation amount will help us to provide quality medical care for Daisy. If you would like to donate to Daisy, please click here.

We can’t predict what the future holds for Miss Daisy, but we do know that we will find her a loving home to spend the rest of her life in. We invite you to consider being a monthly partner for Daisy? With your help we will give Daisy the most amazing year possible! Please join us in celebrating her life by helping us to give her a bucket list like no other!

If you are interested in fostering or adopting her please contact Elizabeth at ‭(805) 687-4674‬ or fill out an application (click on the link below.)

Best Mother’s Day Gift Ever!

unnamedOn May 8th,  I spoke with the owner of Max, Oliver, (age 9: siblings) and Zoe (age 11; mom) for the very first time. Chris shared that he was losing his home and needed to move out by the 15th of May. He was distraught and was agonizing about finding the 3 pups a home together. Not many landlords will rent to someone with 3 dogs. I agreed to help him and we decided that we would try to rehome all 3 together, but we both recognized that it was a slim chance to re-home all 3 to the same Adopter. They were posted for adoption that day, and the search for a new home began.
On May 11th, Chris called and asked if they could come to my home that evening. I had been on the phone screening applicants for about 7 hours. I had just received an application from a woman in Washington that wanted to adopt all 3 together! Most of the img_7437other applicants wanted the mom Zoe, or the two brothers. I shared that information with the owner and he offered to pay for transport all the way to the adopters home! He also purchased dog food and sent some money to pay for their rabies vaccine update that was due soon! I contacted a volunteer with our rescue, and Janice agreed to take the pups to the the new owner over the weekend!

On Mother’s Day, Zoe, Max, and Oliver arrived at their new home in a small town near Seattle. It was love at first sight! Our Mother’s Day Mission was complete!
There are times in our lives when people are forced to choose to put their pets welfare above their own! Chris made a difficult decision. He made the right decision. He sacrificed what he wanted to do, and instead chose what was best for his pup-kids.

img_7438Former owner, Chris: Debra, this whole thing turned out to be such a wonderful thing. I am confident that Max, Oliver and Zoe, will shower their new family with a massive amount of love. I am so happy for all. From the bottom of my heart, thank you and thank the family in Washington for such love.

Lewis Family (adopting family):
Tell him (Chris) we will take the best care of them, and that they have brought needed joy to this house that has had too much death and sadness in this past year.

This is an example of the stories we hear every day. People wanting the best for their unnamed-1pets, and at times being forced to make a hard choice. All 3 dogs are together, and have a loving home. They will be loved and cared for the rest of their lives! We could not do what we do without the love and support of our volunteers, our donors, and our foster homes!

Emy and others in Need of Foster Homes

We got a call from a rescuer last month that a CBAE9C2A7-ocker was wandering in the middle of a highway, and needed our help. Emy was limping, and had abrasions on her chest, as if she had been thrown out of a moving car! She was also covered in ticks, and literally hundreds were removed by hand from her whole body. Emy is a sweet little lady, and she deserves to be treated with loving care for the rest of her days! This little 6 year old is a sweetheart! She weighs 23 lbs, is kid and dog friendly, and is completely House-trained! Emy uses the dog door on her own without prompting. She is UTD on shots, and is spayed. She also has a microchip. This little lady will not last long! Get your applications in fast! Call Janice at ‭(805) 441-4209‬ for more information! She is currently being fostered in Paso Robles!

Emy and some of her friends are searching for a foster family, or better yet, a permanent family! We rely on our foster families to give dogs like Emy sanctuary from difficult situations. Please consider opening your homes to Cockers just like Emy! Please call Elizabeth Mazzetti at ‭(805) 687-4674‬ , for more information on our wonderful foster program!

Friends of the Cockers – We need homes too!

IMG_7203Wait until you see the treasures we found in Bakersfield, CA! Oh my, their Chi!! Chihuahua’s that is. mixed with Chinese Crested (check out Robin) and mystery mixes they are all wonderful. If you are the person who thinks of a yappy, nippy Chi then we challenge you to find one bad apple in our bunch. They are silly, funny, sweet, loving, cuddly and just about perfect. Nope, sorry they are perfect!

We rescued 15 Chi mixes this week from the hoarding cases in Bakersfield, CA.  They had no Cocker Spaniels but we could not stand there when hundreds of dogs needed help! We had no idea what we were going to get but wow, we LOVE them! We need help with fosters and adopters to give these little gems the best furever homes! Who are the best adoption families? Cocker owners, of course! So please consider fostering. Take two, they are small, young and cuter than cute! If you don’t love them as much as we do, we will find them another home in a heartbeat.
If you can’t foster or adopt can you donate? These little jewels cost money too:)
Thank you! Love all of us at SCCR!

Sweet Babies Need our Help!

In the last month, we had had to deal with 3 different cases involving several img_7086hundred dogs. Our shelters are filled to the max, and Second Chance Cocker Rescue has decided that while rescuing Cocker Spaniels in need is our mission, at the same time we need to answer the call to save these sweet puppies, and other dogs, and allow them to make room for challenges that I cannot even begin to describe. As I walked through the facility today, I felt my heart breaking at the look of sheer terror on their beautiful faces. The amazing staff is working with rescues to save as many as possible. Many lack socialization, and a few mommy’s have litters. I know it seems like a daunting task. We can only do this with your help! First, we will need foster families to step up and open your homes. I know many of you are waiting for a Cocker Spaniel of your very own, but I am hoping that perhaps you would agree to foster while we are looking for your forever Cocker Spaniel love! Second, we will need help financially to move them out of the shelter and into foster homes. Third, we will need people to transport to the foster homes. I know that we are all able to lend a hand in some way. We all are gifted in different ways, and together we can do anything! Please consider joining with us to rescue as many as possible! Today, I wanted to send out the call for help! I also realized that we can be that help! Please contact Elizabeth directly at ‭(805) 687-4674‬ to join with us! Time is running out! Thank you!


clarence-1-lo-res.jpgHi future family, my name is Clarence. If you are looking for a loving lap dog, real cuddler and pal you have found him. I love to play ball, go for walks and take rides in the car. I get along with most dogs and with children. I am a Flat Coated Retriever/Cocker mix with a full tail that is always wagging. I am being fostered in Sonora, CA.

WE DESPERATELY NEED MORE FOSTER HOMES! We are asking for people to consider opening their homes to a Cocker Spaniel in need! We can’t save lives without foster homes and donations. We still have a lot of dogs waiting for foster homes! As a foster pup-parent you get first choice to adopt! We take care of the medical, and you provide a comfy home, healthy food, and lots of love! Please contact us directly to speak with us about any questions you may have about the foster program. We look forward to speaking with you and saving more Cocker boys and girls!!
Please contact Elizabeth with any questions (805) 687-4674

Gentleman Lukas Needs Love and a New Home

image2Meet LUKAS! This little gentleman came into our rescue as a rehome. Lukas is 3 years of age, weighs 24 lbs, is house-trained, and also dog-door trained. He knows many commands, and is very obedient. He is being treated for arthritis in his hip. He needs anti-inflammatory medication, and some acupuncture to help with discomfort. Lukas gets along well with other dogs, and is ok with cats. He would do best in an adult only home, or with older kids in a calm home. Lukas is good in a car,image1 going for walks, and is truly an angel boy! He loves playing and running outdoors. He loves his toys, and loves to put them all in his bed with him. He has been to obedience school, and is trained to stay off the furniture. Can you find it in your heart to help Lukas with his medical treatment? He should be ready to meet his new family very soon! Get your applications in fast! Before I decide to keep him for myself! Love this boy! Fostered in Bakersfield, CA.
