Ann summers, will be greatly missed

Many of you  knew Ann Summers from the Cocker Spaniel Rescue group, Cocker Connection. She was known as one of the most compassionate and dedicated Cocker rescuers in California. We were proud to have her on our Advisory board and such good friend for so many years. Ann’s whole world revolved around her beloved husband, Mike, and her rescue work.

We are sad to say we lost Ann this last Sunday and we will miss sharing pictures of our latest rescues with her and hearing her rescue stories. Every dog she rescued and every family she placed those dogs with have been changed and touched by Ann. They, like us, will never be the same. In honor of her memory and rescue work we have placed a beautiful plaque at the Sanctuary on one of our benches so you can remember her when you visit and were we will think about her every day.

A donation in honor of Ann and the work she dedicated her life too.

Help Frannie Mae and lenny

Please help Frannie Mae and Lenny! They are both about 7 years old and they were picked up together, so it would appear that they came out of the same home. We do not know yet if they are a ‘bonded pair’ or not. We just got them from the Coachella shelter a few a days ago . We do not know anything about them other than they were scared in the shelter. They will be vetted and have surgery in 2 weeks. A donation of any size toward their care is much appreciated. Thank you in advance .If you can find it in your heart to donate to their care, here’s how you can help:CLICK THE DONATE BUTTON BELOW

The story of Marty

Marty is an incredibly sweet boy that we got out of the shelter. He was overgrown and matted with his nails curled around and one digging back into the pad. He has since been shaved down and looks great. His face was very swollen on one side so we assumed a dental infection of some sort. He was also not neutered so immediately got him in for a neuter and dental because we knew we had to do something about the swelling and infection. Marty is a very lovie boy, but if you touched his face he would snap at you. Once he was under anesthesia they got in to look and were horrified by what was in there. His teeth were so badly abcessed and infected it was amazing that he could eat at all. Swollen gums, jammed full of foxtails (yes, even in his mouth) and rotted. When one tooth was pulled, blood came out his nose. This was a serious dental issue going on! Needless to say, he lost many teeth! He has a bit of a recovery ahead after all this, but we feel that once he is healed up he will be an even more awesome dog. He already is, just was in so much pain and now he is going to feel great. Marty is about 8 years old and it will be a couple of weeks before he will be ready to go. There will be a follow up vet visit due to the extensive damage in his mouth, his bone had turned spongy due to infection and that will take a while to clear up. Marty does fine with other dogs. He is not aggressive, but he does like to be the dominant boy. This should subside since he is now neutered. He loves people and does love to give kisses and now that his breath will be better, the kisses will be much better too!

Arlo’s Sanctuary Update

The electric lines are laid, the lamp posts installed and the parking lot work will start the week of July 12th…Yahoo!!! We have hoses and misters on our Amazon wish list to keep the dogs cool outside. Gus and Jethro, our Pot Belly pigs, are already enjoying their mister and mud puddle to keep cool in the summer heat. We are working on framing the sheds to hold the drywall and installing the AC units. We finally found the perfect solution to put up in the sheds for the wainscoting. It will look just right and be tough enough to hold up against the dogs. If you want to see what we found come to our Sanctuary Dinner Sept 18th.

Benny is a sweet, mellow boy who we never saw get into a lick of trouble. We needed to board him up north for a couple of days while he was waiting for his neuter date. We had gotten great reviews about this kennel and we had used them several times in the past so we didn’t expect any trouble at all.

Well, surprise, twenty minutes after he was dropped off we got an urgent call. Benny had decided to go over several fences to get to two pit bulls. We can only assume one was in heat. He made it over two four foot fences but got hung up in the wires of the six foot cyclone fence impaled by the wires and a foot caught and twisted in the holes. He was bleeding from punctures all over. It wasn’t clear if the fence did all the damage or the dogs in the kennel didn’t like what he had done and gone after him. Our transporter came right back and picked him up. He reported in that while still bleeding, Benny could make it to Dr Cards, our vet. We called ahead and had her waiting. By the time he got their he was going into shock and he needed her team to get him stable. She decided he needed rest and fluids before surgery.

She was the most worried about the wire that punctured deep into his armpit. There is a big ganglia of nerves in there that, if damaged, would cause him to lose that leg. Thankfully he missed them by a sliver of an inch. His swollen paw was not broken either. What a lucky boy!!

He got his drains out yesterday and will go home with his new mom on Sat. She is driving all the way from Wilsonville, OR to Jamestown CA to get him. Yep he is that special.


Sunshine went to the vet for her check up and we found that she needs dental very badly, she has broken molars and many damaged teeth. She has a severe heart murmur and an enlarged heart. She has cataracts on both eyes. We have scheduled her for her dental, then this sweet 13 year old girl will be ready for a foster/adoption home.


We have some exciting SCCR events coming up! We can’t wait to see everyone again!

Reese is a sweet little cocker doxie mix about 8 years old. She needs some physical therapy to strengthen and train her back legs and a foster home to help her through this.

We hope you can help us get her the best medical care possible. She needs acupuncture and water therapy to help her walk again.
