Story: Adopt a Senior Sweetie
Second Chance Cocker Rescue is pawing it forward by finding homes for cocker spaniels in California. They sent in this story to share.
There are three senior fellas looking for their forever families. Maybe it’s you?
This week, we rescued not one, but three senior boys. All three of these sweet seniors need foster homes while they wait for us to find them permanent homes. They are also eligible for our Sanctuary Program where we pay for their medical bills for the rest of their lives.
First was Alvin, a sweet 10-year-old boy living with a family in Modesto. He needed medical care but they couldn’t afford his vet bills so they called us. We were delighted to be able to say we could help. After a few tests, it turned out that Alvin probably has Cushing’s disease and he will be tested for that. With the proper meds, he will live a normal, happy life.
Then we heard about Vayle, a 13-year-old boy in the Animal Friends of the Valley shelter. He had been turned in several weeks before by his family. The shelter contacted us to rescue him, but before we could respond, a family had adopted him. We were delighted — that is until they changed their minds and brought him back. This time, we made sure we got him. He is adorable.
Last, but certainly not least, Carolyn found 10-year-old Corwin at the the California City shelter. She fell in love with that cute face. Who wouldn’t?
All of Second Chance Cocker Rescue dogs are behavior-tested and receive an exam, vaccinations, spay/neuter and heartworm testing. Interested in adopting? Fill out their application here.
