Tommy Boy’s Wish to See Again

IMG_3013My name is Tommy Boy, and I need your help. I am not sure why I have not been able to find my forever family yet? I have tried as hard as I could to be a good boy, and people tell me that I am the sweetest boy ever! I agree with that, but because I recently lost my sight, I am not as happy as I used to be. I run into walls, and get lost (inside) easily. I have accidents in the house if I can’t find my way outside. I cry a lot because I am scared all the time, unless someone is with me, and I know that I am not alone. I sometimes howl at night, when it’s really quiet and dark, because I can’t find my foster peeps! I spent the first part of my life in a small kennel used for breeding. I think that is why I really, really, like being with someone. I understand that I am a pup that needs a lot of work, and I totally get it. I just can’t adjust to being blind, and after 2 years of this, I am about to give up, to be honest. I feel like I’ll never find a family to love me in this condition. My IMG_3026quality of life is not what it should be. I am asking my SCCR friends for a huge favor? I am begging you to help me see again! I think I could find a place to call my own if I could see! Other than being sad, because I can’t see, I am the sweetest soul! I love everyone I meet, including kids and other dogs. I am already neutered, mostly house-trained, up to date with shots, and good with cats!!! I am still active, and I am a playful and loving pup! I am otherwise quite healthy. I will make someone very happy if only I can see again. I know I am asking a lot of my friends at SCCR, but because they all love me, they are trying to help me. Can you find it in your heart to help me be a happy boy again? I sure hope so!!!
Love, Tommy Boy

The surgery to restore Tommy Boy’s sight will cost about $5,000 dollars. Tommy will also need to stay with someone living close to the doctor in the San Carlos/San Jose, CA area while recovering. Every donation, large and small will help get us closer to this goal. Whoever adopts this little love-bug will NOT be disappointed! We all love this gentle little soul!

Update on Athena Who’s Hoping to See Again

IMG_6922Remember my story “Not just a number to us” from November 2015? It’s me, Athena, back with an update on how I’m doing.

Nobody is interested in adopting me because of my cataracts. By golly, I’m only four years old! I think it’s silly, because I find my way around fine on walks and jumping up onto my foster mom’s bed.

Lucky for me, my angels at Second Chance Cocker Rescue are trying real hard to fundraise, so I will be able to see again. I met with a really nice vet named Dr. Michael Chang at VCA West Los Angeles last week to see if I’m a candidate for cataract surgery.

I was a really good girl. I made it easy for the doctor to look into my eyes. He really liked me a lot! I also had two fancy procedures called an electroretinogram
and an ultrasound, which looked even deeper into my eyes. The good news: Dr. Chang said I’m a great candidate for cataract surgery in both eyes. The bad news: I was told by my foster mom, it’s an expensive procedure, about $5,000. 13138862_10154353602828273_2379244130057433606_n

If any of you out there can help and donate to my cause, it will make me wag my wigglebutt so much! And I’m ready to meet my family,  jump on your laps, sleep in your bed and be your forever girl.  I can’t wait to meet AND see you!

Love,

Athena

 

 

I Need a Little TLC!

JonesyA week ago I was just a number. I long number behind bars in a cold, scary place. People walked by and laughed at me, but I wasn’t sure why. I’m cute and lovable. I was hoping one of them would take me out of the kennel to play with me. I prayed with my little paws for a way out. The stars must have been aligned because a really nice lady came, took me in her arms and brought me to a warm and comfy home. I heard her talking to some others, saying I have something called a prolapsed rectum. I’m not sure what that means, but I do know that I’m not that comfortable around my back side. I may look silly sitting like a frog, but it’s easier for my tushie. I heard her say they are going to fix me up so I will feel good and look good. I’m so happy to have this second chance to have a happy, healthy life. I promise to keep you posted!

Love, Jonesy

“Teddy Bear” pup needs Cherry Eye Surgery

Teddy BearAt the tender age of 4 months, Teddy Bear popped a cherry eye. As soon as the family found out how much it cost to fix, they decided to give him away. Second Chance Cocker Rescue could not have been more delighted! We will fix him up good as new, and find him a family that cares enough to take care of him properly.
Teddy Bear is a sweet Cocker/Golden mix, and it looks like his foster family might adopt him. But first, we have to take care of his neuter and cherry eye surgeries.

Homeless and Afraid

Cherry beforeWe got a call from Megan, a woman who works with homeless people. She saw a tiny Cocker Spaniel living in a homeless shelter parking lot. She was bone thin, with two cherry eyes and her coat was so matted you couldn’t see much of her. Megan asked if SCCR would take her. We couldn’t say no to rescuing this sweet and scared soul. Megan was able to catch her and bring her down to be vetted and cared for in Romoland, CA. She is about four years old, red and white and has a very sweet disposition. She loves to kiss everyone she meets. She is a bit bossy with other dogs, but that is probably because she had to fight for every bite of her food for too long.

We named her Cherry as she is in need of cherry eye surgery for both eyes. We would deeply appreciate any help in making this surgery happen soon.

A big thank you to Megan for calling us. Cherry wouldn’t have lasted much longer on her own.

If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, please fill out an adoption application.

Thank you for your continued support!

My Christmas Wish is to See Again

Baxter1cropHi, my name is Baxter. I was recently rescued by the fantastic folks at Second Chance Cocker Rescue. I’m 9 years old, and have been blind for a few years. It doesn’t stop me from enjoying my walks, snuggling with my foster mom on the couch, getting lots of yummy dog treats and giving lots of kisses.Baxter2

Christmas is just around the corner. I think dogs get wishes too. I hope it’s not too big of a wish, but I’m really hoping that I can see
again real soon! I heard my foster mom say my vision can come back with cataract surgery. It would really make me happy to see the smile on my foster mom’s face knowing that I can see again, and to see the pretty flowers I have been smelling on my walks.

Baxter3The good news for Baxter is his condition is repairable. He can regain
his sight. Cataract surgery is expensive and we need help! Will you help make his Christmas wish come true?

No donation is too small. Thank you so much and Happy Holidays!

We Rescued Batman

Mr wayneMr Wayne was sitting in the San Diego Humane Society and he was a bit of a train wreck. Bad skin, one bad eye, missing the other and bad ears they realized he didn’t have much of a chance to get adopted so they called us. Well, train wrecks are our specialty, besides who could resist that coloring. Wow, what an unusual boy. We couldn’t wait to meet him and he was as sweet and odd looking as his first picture. We shaved him down, renamed him Batman and got him off to the vet to start on meds. It will take a week or two of Carolyn’s TLC but he will be ready for his new home soon.
