Cockers For Sale At Target?

Lulu was rescued by a compassionate woman named Cindi from a person trying to sell her in a Target parking lot in Sacramento.  Poor Lulu, but she is safe now and better than that she has been adopted by the Schoel Family and will be safe and loved forever.

Elizabeth’s Birthday Celebration!

November 10, this year, is my 52nd birthday and I would like to ask all of you to share it with me. I have donated $500 to the SCCR dogs as a birthday present to myself because who needs more stuff? If you would like to help me celebrate my birthday, please send a check in any amount to SCCR, 1168 Palomino Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 (be sure to put “For Elizabeth’s Birthday” on it) or click the link below. My goal is to have a big fat check ready for our next big surgery. Now that is the perfect birthday present for me!

All donations will go to our vet bills for the cockers. Cockers like Diezel who lost an eye at 12 weeks when he got in the middle of some rough play with older dogs. He is all better now and still as handsome as always.

We had a howling good time at the Northern California’s First Annual Halloween Photo Shoot at Unleashed by Petco in Sacramento.   We had cockers and other breeds dressed in costume as bumblebees, punk rockers, hot dogs, dancers in tutus, beetles, pumpkins, Harley-Davidson riders, witches and lots of other adorable costumes.  A good time was had by dogs and humans.  All dogs got a bag of homemade dog bones made by our volunteer Mary Young.  Humans got to taste her yummy cowboy cookies.   Mark Adkison volunteered his time to do the photography and Clark Marshall provided a wonderful Halloween/Fall set for the photos as well as assisting Mark with the dogs.    Thank you to Lana, Michaeline, Michael and Mary, Robyn, Jim, and Bill, the volunteers who helped at todays event. We all had a wonderful time and are looking forward to an even more successful time next year!  – Joann Reagan


Ren and Stimpy


Ren and Stimpy are two absolutely adorable one year old Cavalier mix brothers. They were on the kill list at the Camarillo shelter because they both had cherry eye and needed surgery. Not too many people can afford surgery for a new dog these days so, there they were, only one chance left, us. We took one look at those sweet faces and you know what we said, yes, of course we would take them!


After $600 worth of surgery each, they are now ready to go home. Thanks to your support they had their cherry eye surgery, were neutered and are now up to date on all their vaccines.

Conehead Baby, Denziel

Denziel is only 12 weeks old and could not be a more handsome baby. He is so sweet and this poor baby was in the wrong place in wrong time and lost an eye last week. We will find him a good home where he will be safe and loved.  In the mean time we need a foster for this while he recovers from his surgery and is a conehead for a couple of weeks.

No Tears Should Be Shed

This email was from our friend, supporter and fellow cocker rescuer Celia in regards to Hazel, a cocker we helped her rescue.
“Dear All,
    It is with great gratitude and sincere appreciation that I thank you for helping me help Hazel.  She arrived at the Stanislaus County Animal Shelter is such terrible condition, it was difficult not to cry at first glance.  She smelled from urine something awful, was matted beyond recognition–so much so that the staff couldn’t determine if she was male or female, and had yellow mucous covering both eyes.  . . . Yet, when I opened the kennel door to say “hello” she slowly stood up and gave a very slight wiggle of the tushie.  It was at that very moment I knew she was asking for my help.  And so, my friend Renee and I put our heads together and came up with a plan which included asking you all for help.
     Though everyone’s contributions are greatly appreciated, I am equally grateful to Second Chance Cocker Rescue (Ms. Joann Reagan) and Dr.’s Mike O’Brien and Jenny Chatfield of Maze Animal Hospital.  They graciously offered their services at a drastically reduced rate in order to save this little “girl’s” life.  Without the three of them, Hazel was only two days away from being euthanized at our shelter.  After all, who would want a dog in this condition.  Once again, I have had the enormous pleasure of proving our shelter wrong!
     Today, Hazel has found her “Fairy Dog Mother” (that’s her in the yellow shirt), and is receiving much love, attention, care and kindness in her Foster home.  Mama Kathleen, as I like to call her, dotes on Hazel and makes sure she takes all her meds.–along with numerous dog treats throughout the day–and insures she lives life to the fullest on a daily basis!  Heck, Hazel even made an appearance at a Humane Society fundraiser held at Chili’s restaurant Tuesday night in Modesto.  And though it has been determined that, indeed, Hazel has a cancerous tumor on her neck area, she is finally truly living.  Let’s face it, through our collective efforts Hazel has found heaven on earth.  Who could ask for more?
     For now, no tears should be shed.  Ms. Hazel is feisty, happy and leaving her mark on the world and will continue to do so as long as we are certain she is living pain free.
Thank you all for your care and concern.
Celia Angel”
