Bodhi Pupdate

Who’s ready for some more good news?!?

Bodhi

Who remembers Bodhi? The pup we pulled from the shelter in Northern CA at the beginning of April with the mouth tumor?

Well, he has been seen by our vet and it turns out the sore we were told was cancer is just a super nasty infection. Now that’s not great news and he will need antibiotics and a few months to recover, but it’s not cancer and it’s treatable!!! Yay!!

Bodhi is resting and being loved on in his foster home and will be ready for a forever home once he has a clean bill of health. Bodhi is a sweet, social, smart 3 year old little boy! He loves kids, cats, dogs, and just about everyone. He knows tons of commands like dance and come!

Bodhi is currently in foster in San Jose, CA. If you have fallen in love with Bodhi and would like to adopt him, please fill out our adoption application!

Arlo’s Sanctuary Update

Arlo, Chaz, our beautiful sanctuary

We have made a huge amount of progress on the Sanctuary. The kennels are built and the floors are tiled. We are painting the outsides now around the rainy days. Insulating and dry walling the kennels is on the list to do. We have the permit and plans for the parking lot. As soon as the county approves the drawings, we can start work on that. The next big project is getting the electricity down to the kennels. We are looking into adding the Solar power in now instead of waiting since the propane and electric bills are so high. It will pay for is self very quickly.


We have decided that a small herd of goats is the best way to maintain the grass and brush growth on the property. We have been promised one youngster, Chaz, as soon as he is old enough and have our eye on a couple more if we can talk their mom into letting them go. We will build a permanent goat and chicken area for them to live in. It is close to the dog kennels and you can come and see them when you come to visit. Maybe we will have some extra chicken eggs for you to take home.We will also be moving in several feral cats to live in the barn very soon as our rodent patrol. We want them settled in and working before the dogs get here. Some of these cats are more feral than others so you might get to sit in the rocking chair on the with a cat in your lap while you relax and take in the property. It is our favorite lunch spot.

We can’t wait until we can start welcoming dogs and visitors to our beautiful sanctuary. We still have so much to do and every donation is greatly appreciated. We are so grateful to all of our donors who have helped us make this dream a reality!! Thank you so much!

Help Us Save Bodhi

This is Bodhi! Isn’t he just adorable?!

Bodhi

Bodhi is a sweet, social, smart 3 year old little boy! He loves kids, cats, dogs, and just about everyone. He knows tons of commands like dance and come! He is just a true gem!

So how did Bodhi end up at Second Chance Cocker Rescue? Poor boy. Bodhi unfortunately has a tumor in his mouth that is pretty bad and is causing him some pain. His owner couldn’t afford the care he needs to give him a fighting chance, so they did what was best for Bodhi and got him to someone who could help him. Bodhi has been seen by a vet and we are anxiously awaiting biopsy results.

In the meantime, Bodhi is resting comfortably in a loving foster home. He is getting the pain meds he needs and he is enjoying all of the attention being given to him. Through all of this, Bodhi’s sweet and gentle nature shines through. We are dedicated to giving him everything he needs for as long as he’s with us.

How can you help Bodhi? Great question!
We know his medical treatment for the tumor in his mouth will be very expensive. If you have even just a dollar to spare, you can help make a difference for Bodhi. If you’d like to donate to Bodhi’s medical care, here’s how you can help:

Sponsor A Spaniel – Hailey

Hailey

Hailey is one of the 14 dogs we have in boarding right now.


This little girl is full of energy. She will thrive in a female only home where she can be the center of attention. No other dogs or kids for this girl. She needs a patient person who is willing to put in the time and effort to train her and help Hailey become the best dog she can be.


Please consider donating to Hailey’s boarding costs while we are all in quarantine.
We are accepting applications for Hailey’s adoption as well. We’d love to find a forever home for her to go to once all of the restrictions are lifted.

Sponsor a Spaniel Sunday

Twinkie has been with SCCR since March, 2019 and he has been waiting way too long for his forever home!

Twinkie adores spending quality time with his special person. Twinkie is a very sweet boy who loves people. He has a little trouble seeing and hearing as he’s gotten older, but that doesn’t stop him. He would do best as an only dog in a calm home. Twinkie is about 11 years old now and is eligible for our sanctuary program.

Twinkie is one of the 14 dogs we have in boarding right now. If you can help sponsor Twinkie during this COVID-19 quarantine, we’d greatly appreciate it.

SCCR Update

Nurse Ginger

Hi friends! We just want to take a moment to touch base with everyone and let you all know what’s going on with Second Chance Cocker Rescue right now. Currently our volunteers are all doing their part to stay safe at home and hope that our SCCR friends are doing the same. We appreciate your support and understanding during this difficult time.

In accordance with the guidelines set forth by numerous county and state health officials, we are placing a hold on moving any dogs from their current locations. This includes adoptions, fosters, and any incoming dogs (both owner surrenders and shelter pulls). Emergencies will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

During this time, we will have 14 dogs in boarding while waiting for their forever homes. This includes our 4 medical needs dogs, Heidi, Blair (these two girls were in our last post), Theodore, and Winston.

Winston is struggling with a nasty case of giardia. Poor guy is feeling really unwell and we are doing everything we can to get him healthy again.

Winston

Theodore has a mystery fungal issue that we are treating. When he was getting a haircut, we noticed a lump on his chest. We got it looked at and the contents the vet aspirated from it came back as fungal. Unfortunately all of the tests we’ve run have come back negative. We are making sure to be extra thorough and we are doing everything to find out what is going on with Theodore. On top of all of this, the poor guy is eating like crazy and not gaining weight. What a medical puzzle he is!

Theodore

All of our dogs will continue to receive exceptional care and love. If you can help at all with our $2,800/month boarding bill (which includes food, training, vet visit transportation, socialization, and endless love) or our medical bills for Heidi, Blair, Theodore, or Winston, please click on the donate button. Every little bit helps.

For all of the other dogs in our care, we will continue to accept foster/adoption applications and will continue to screen them per our usual process. Waitlists will be compiled for dogs and we will resume showing dogs once restrictions are lifted. If you would like to submit your application please do so via this link.

Thank you all so much for everything you do to help us continue to save Cocker Spaniels!!! We love you all!!! Stay safe and well!!

Heidi and Blair Need Your Help

Heidi and Blair are a bonded pair of sweet little girls that just came to us from Bakersfield. They need a home together ASAP.

Both girls have sever medical issues that we are addressing immediately. Poor Blair has a mass growing near her bits and is fighting kennel cough. Heidi is blind and deaf with a cherry eye in one eye and the worst ears we’ve seen in a long time. Heidi is also riddled with mammary tumors and other masses on her body. It’s clear that they have been neglected for way too long, but we are here to give them a second chance!

We are dedicated to giving these girls the best care possible. We know vet bills for these two are going to be well over $1000 and any help from our friends would be greatly appreciated.

We also would love to get these girls out of boarding and into a foster home together that will care for them while they get the care they need. Right now they are in separate boarding facilities and we would love to reunite them. Our vet in is Corona, CA, so if you live near there and need some company, please consider opening your heart and home to Heidi and Blair.

If you can foster these angels for us, please fill out our adoption/foster application.

You can also call us directly at (805) 687-4674.

Cash Needs Some TLC

Cash was living with a family for many years when he started to bite their child. They called us and we happily took him on. How do you say no to a face that cute?!

Once we met Cash, was immediately obvious what the problem was. He had very painful ear infections and one ear has a growth in it. The ears are causing him lots of discomfort and made him super cranky. He is very reactive to them being touched. Poor guy. Cash needs a dental too as his teeth are not so nice and one of his molars is broken. To make matters worse, Cash also has a huge tumor on his mouth.

Cash has a raging 5/6 heart murmur on top of all of his other heath problems. We took an x-ray to see what exactly is going on. Good news he does not have an enlarged heart. However, due to his age (14) and his significant heart murmur our vet does not suggest putting him under anesthesia for the masses or his teeth.  Cash is eating normally and it really doesn’t appear that anything is painful other than his ears.

This turned out to be a situation where we will make him comfortable for as long as we can and let him live out his last few months/years pain free. Cash is a good dog and we are dedicated to helping him live his best life in a wonderful home.

We will continue to monitor Cash’s health and would greatly appreciate any donations towards his medical care. Please give what you can. Every dollar helps. Cash appreciates it!
