Abi’s dad passed away leaving her homeless and very lonely. Her dad’s son is keeping her until we can find her a permanent home so she is safe but she is not getting the love and attention she deserves. She is very lonely and needs some loving care from someone she can connect with and share her life. Abi enjoys going on walks, curling up in a chair next to you, she gets along well with other dogs and would enjoy a yard. Abi is in the San Francisco, Bay Area.

Phoebe continues to amaze her foster mom with her spunk and love. She is doing very well with her skin getting better and better each day. She loves to be with the other dogs and part of the “pack”. She is always looking for a tennis ball or other toy to play with. She has also discovered the view of the front yard from the sofa and has found her voice to bark at anyone walking by or bark at the cats 🙂
Her skin is not red and inflamed any more. It is a nice healthy pink. Now all she needs is some hair! You can see her cherry eyes now. That surgery will have to wait until she is 100% better.
We got sweet Bridget from the Modesto shelter where she was a stray that no one claimed. She won the heart over from one of our dedicated volunteers, Jim, who transported her to Placerville. It was those big brown eyes that do it every time. We did not know she had mammory tumors until she was spayed and had cherry eye surgery, then vet removed those too. She is is stitches from stem to stern but recuperating comfortably in her foster home and is quick to give you kisses every chance she gets. Bridget’s vet expenses were $1,500.
This is Esther renamed Sara by her dad of the past few months. She came to us from a public shelter and was literally a bag of bones. We thought there was little chance of adoption. As miracles will happen she met Dave, a senior gentleman who was very lonely before welcoming Esther into his home. She is in our Sanctuary program which means we are responsible for her medical care. She, accompanied by her constant companion Dave, went to the vet. for a checkup and dental cleaning. We all agreed it was a good time to remove her long-exisiting mammory tumors. Sara is an older girl so she had a difficult time during surgery – she started bleeding out and her heart stopped on the operating table. Fortunately, the vet was able to start her heart again. She is recuperating at home in Dave’s loving care. We are sure hoping that Sara pulls through just fine. Her medical expenses were over $1,600.
This is Emma, she was the little girl that was accidentally hit by a car by her owners in Salinas and then they wanted her euthanized because they could not afford the vet bill..Instead, the vet contacted Second Chance Cocker Rescue and we took her in, got her patched up and found her a fabulous home. Emma sent us a little video she made to give us an update. We wanted to share it with you. Here is Emma to tell her story: Emma’s Happy Tail Video

Thank you so much Nick and Cali! It is the support from people like Nick who allow us to rescue dogs like Cali. For as little as $20-30 a month you can help us save cockers in need, one dog at a time.
