Lily is on the Road to Recovery

unnamedOur sweet Lily was rushed to the vet this week for emergency treatment! Foster mom Tammi woke up to find Lily curled into a ball at the end of her bed. Lily was not able to put any weight on the leg, and she was shaking as if in pain. Tammi rushed Lily to our local vet! Lily had X-rays, and she was diagnosed with a dislocated hip. Dr C had to put her under anesthesia to pop it back into place. She was kept in the hospital over the weekend, and was finally allowed to return to her foster home yesterday. Lily is crated, or held on a leash to restrict all movement, except for regular potty breaks. She has been taped in order to support healing around her hip and back area, and to keep the hip joint in place. She will receive another set of X-rays next week to check her progress. At that time, our vet will determine the best course of action for Lily.unnamed-3

Our Lily (age 4 years) is one of our favorite foster pups. She is so sweet and loving, and loves to shower her people with kisses! We are asking for help with Lily’s mounting medical bills? Can you find it in your heart to support Lily during her medical crisis? Lily would really appreciate it!


I’m A Mom Now! But I Need a Home for Me and My Pups!

Dear World,
Can you believe I am a mom now?! I am so very happy! I was very scared at first, but I love my puppies so much! They were definitely worth the wait! I delivered 5 boys and 3 girls. My smallest baby girl died at birth, which made me very sad. I was not expecting to have such good medical care, but the staff here at the Veterinary Hospital has been so kind to me. I am not used to that. They are really spoiling me, which helps me to feel hopeful about my future, and the future of my puppies as well.
I am hoping to go to a foster home somewhere by next week? I will need to stay there in my foster home with my pups for about 8 to 10 weeks, when they will be ready for their new img_9828forever families! At that time, I will be spayed and then I will be ready for a forever family of my own.
I would like to thank everyone for the support and care I have received so far. I could not have had my babies without you all! They are here and healthy, because of all of you. Please know how very grateful I am! My babies have a chance at a happy and healthy life, which is far and above anything that I was given in my own life! Please stay tuned for more pictures of my pup-kids! They are adorable, if I do say so myself! 💕 Love from me,
Aurora : aka MOM!!!
 Aurora is currently in Bakersfield, CA. Please call Debra at (661) 303-9867 if you would like to foster this sweet momma and her 7 babies.
We also appreciate donations, large and small to help with vaccinations, care and spaying of Aurora. Thank you!

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.

Sweet Daisy is getting some TLC

unnamed-1After years of pain, our sweet Daisy girl is finally going to get some relief from her mammary tumors. Daisy is scheduled for a spay and mammary chain removal next week with the wonderful Dr. Card. This is not going to be an easy surgery, but we are hopeful that it will give her a longer and better quality life.

We need your help to get her this life changing surgery! Any donation will help as we need to raise approximately $1,700 to pay for her treatment. Our friends of SCCR are the most amazing supporters and we know you love Daisy as much as we do and want to see her living her best life.

Our goal in the meantime is to keep her comfortable and give her as much love as unnamedpossible. She is enjoying going shopping, playing at home with her friends, visiting the park, and getting very spoiled. She will be making an appearance at our SCCR Picnic at Rincon Beach this Saturday, July 21, where she can soak up the sea and sun. Come join us for a great event and say hi to our pretty little girl!

Letter to Kodi

unnamedDearest Kodi, I was so very proud to see you off today. You were on your way to a new life with wonderful new parents! You were so sweet and gentlemanly with Meg. Not at all the same dog that came for fostering and training several months ago. I remember a little boy, trying to act tough, to hide the fact that you were so terrified of all of the recent changes in your life. You learned to kiss our faces instead of biting, to cuddle up in bed at night, and to meet and greet new people. Now, I see a sweet young man who has so much more self confidence. You walk proudly and lead with your heart. I found you the best home that I could find. I know you are ready to be on your own, and settle in with your new family, and to jet off to new adventures. You will always hold a special place in my heart! I will always remember what a truly great boy you were. I wish you safety and happiness little one! All of my best Love and kisses, from your foster mom,
– Elizabeth.

We could not do what we do without the support of all of you! Kodi would have been sent to a shelter, and he would have most likely ended his life alone, on a cold metal table, with people he didn’t know, terrified and confused. We have other dogs like Kodi, that we are working hard to rehabilitate and find them a loving home. Please, please 36477797_2560488387310152_9001248783710814208_nconsider sponsoring a dog like Kodi? We have Buddy, who has been waiting almost a year for his forever family! He has been waiting for one of you! Kodi had a happy ending to his story! Many more are waiting for their happy-ever-after as well! Please contact us and we will partner with you to place a special Cocker Spaniel with a loving forever family!

Our deepest appreciation to all of you!

Soon She Will Be Bright As A New Penny

A friend showed up unexpectedly with a family in tow at 9:30 pm the other night! Janice was asked to look at their dog’s skin. They took her to a vet who wasn’t able to help. They stated that they adopted her about 2 months ago from Woods Humane Society where she was just fine. Currently, half of her fur is missing,  and she has bloody rips in her skin where she is aggressively scratching her wounded skin. She looks miserable! We took Penny into our rescue, and transported her to our vet the next day, who treated her for a bacterial infection caused by allergies. Now she is on antibiotics, medicated shampoo and allergy meds and in several weeks or months​ she will be as good as new. She is about 6-7 years old and needs a foster or an Adopter! Penny is very laid back and easy-going. She does well with the other foster dogs, and is great with the bunny. Penny is not a barker. We are working on house training, and she is learning to use the doggy door. Donations towards Penny’s medical bills are very much appreciated!

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!
