Build It And They Will Come!

We are very excited to announce that Timothy and Connie Wagner have donated enough money to start building our Kennels…we have enough to put in a parking lot ( mandated by the county ), build the kennels and put in all the fencing! This incredibly generous donation is in memory of their very special Cocker Spaniel Arlo. In his memory we are naming our Sanctuary “Arlo’s Second Chance Sanctuary”. This donation will help us get up and running in months instead of years!

So we are starting out the year with 21 acres of land. As you see lots of trees, grass and shrubs but not much else. Soon we will have pictures of our new 10 spot parking  lot, working on building kennels and putting in fencing. We will keep you up to date and the pictures flowing. We expect to end the year with lots of stories and a full kennel up and running.

Ericka Caudillo will be our Sanctuary manager and she and her family are already moved into the trailer and are helping us get ready for the dogs. She is perfect for this position.

We still need your help, we need another washer/dryer set, an ATV or Golf cart, gravel for paths, heaters/coolers for the kennels,  shelving and storage boxes, we have tons of projects that still need your help with….

Be part of the dream, donate towards the Sanctuary. Arlo would approve!

Dante – Our Newest SCCR Global Rescue Dog

Meet our newest SCCR Global Rescue Dog, Dante!!!

Barely surviving on the streets of Tijuana, Dante was found by a kindhearted person who called us for help. Poor Dante clearly has had a hard life as he is completely emaciated and fully or partially blind. We have no idea how such a handsome boy found himself on the streets of Mexico, but we are committed to helping him.

The first thing we have to do is get Dante to California and get him seen by our vet. We are looking for a volunteer to give Dante a ride from San Diego to our vet in Corona. We also need a foster home for Dante so we can learn more about his personality and make sure he is healthy before he goes to his forever home.

If you can open your home and heart to this pup in need, please contact SCCR directly at (805) 687-4674 or fill out an application.

If you can’t foster but would still like to help, any donations to Dante’s medical care would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to donate at our dedicated SCCR Global Rescue Fund or via our PayPal donation page.

Happy Thanksgiving

We have so much to be thankful for this year!!

We have been blessed with so much generosity and support from all of our wonderful Friends of SCCR! We purchased land and began construction on our Sanctuary, launched our global rescue efforts and brought over our first group of dogs from China, and continued to save cocker spaniels all over California!! Thank you for helping us accomplish so much!! We are so grateful for all of our donors that enable us to continue our mission of saving lives one dog at a time!!!

We are especially thankful for all of our amazing foster, sanctuary, and hospice families!! You are what we need the most!! By opening your homes and hearts to these sweet dogs, you give them more than just a second chance, you give them the unconditional love they need to blossom and live their best lives. Thank you for all you do every day for our dogs!!!

And thank you to our volunteers who give countless hours to SCCR! You do so much to rescue, advocate for, and help our dogs find loving forever homes! All of your hard work does not go unnoticed! We would not be where we are without you!!!

So from all of our families here at Second Chance Cocker Rescue, to yours – Happy Thanksgiving!!! We are thankful for YOU this year!!!

Give Back and Get Your Holiday Shopping Done In One Spot


Chomper would like to remind everyone to select Second Chance Cocker Rescue as your charity to support when you do your holiday shopping on Amazon. When you shop on Amazon Smile, not only are you getting all of the great deals you expect with Amazon, a portion of your purchase goes directly to Second Chance Cocker Rescue!

Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Many, but not all, purchases are eligible and they are marked so you will see which items qualify for a charitable give back. Your account and shopping experience will be exactly the same, but we will get a check too. Every penny counts and they add up with Amazon Smile. Each quarter we receive enough money from this program to cover the spay or neuter of one dog. But the more you shop, the more we can do for our wonderful Cocker Spaniels!
