We will be participating in two holiday theme photo events this season. Petsmart is furnishing the equipment and Santa suit. We are providing the labor force (yeah volunteers!). The first event will be on December 10 th. at Petsmart, 1738 Watt Ave. in Sacramento (CANCELLED) and the second will be on December 17 th. at Petsmart, 2705 E. Bidwell in Folsom. Both sessions will be held from 11 AM to 4 PM. We hope a lot of our friends will bring their fur covered (or hairless would work too) companions for pictures with Santa. Each picture will cost $9.95 and Petsmart will donate $5 of that fee to Second Chance. So come on out, do a good thing, and have a photographic record of it.
December 10—We will be sponsoring along with The Pet House the Holiday Street Fair at The Pet House, 5781 Calle Real Goleta 10-3pm. There will be baked goods, jewelry by Karen, adoptable dogs, nail trimming, fun dog stuff, carolers, a wandering santa. Come on down and bring your dogs for some holiday fun.
Like most adult female dogs who have not been spayed, Gigi had many mammary tumors. that needed to be removed. It took two surgeries for a total of $1600 to remove her entire mammary chain on either side before she was ready for adoption. Debi from Los Alamos took great care of her during her recovery. Then Gig met Daphne and fell in love. Her world is now complete with her new family in Arroyo Grande.
Paulie was torn away from her new born puppies and dumped at the Bakersfield shelter where we found her scared and confused. We took her home to foster in Sacramento with Joann until she was introduced to Dean and Chalayne. It was love at first sight. She is now safe and sound in her new home in Greenbrea. Her new name is Amber and it fits her to a tee.
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.
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 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.
