Well we did it, we took in nine cocker spaniels yesterday from what turned out to be a backyard breeding operation in California City, CA. Two women, who gave us an alias name and told us a fabricated story about how they were getting evicted, said their dogs would be taken to a shelter by the Sheriff's department that was evicting them.

The red flags were going off, especially since the house did not even look like anyone was packing up and getting ready to move. The dogs were all outdoors, living in a dirt yard that had feces everywhere. (it smelled so bad, as soon as we stepped outside, the disgusting odor hit us)...

What we know about Dot so far:

  • She is incredibly sweet
  • Her toe nails were never trimmed, she has nails that have curled inwards and grown into her paw pads causing irritation, infection, and inflammation. She will need this treated immediately as it must be painful to walk.
  • She will have a dental and a spay surgery. Please help us with the cost of this surgery by donating below!

We rely 100% on all of our support in the form of small donations. We run on $5 donations and volunteers! Please consider donating just $5 so we can get on top of our mounting medical bills taking in 9 dogs on one day!

April 28th---- ADOPTED! 

A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated in this last-minute rescue of all 9 dogs at once out in the desert! Dot is the first one adopted, 8 more to go! Can we do it? Not without YOUR HELP! We can not thank our supporters and volunteers enough! We could not do this with out you! Thank you and please continue supporting Camp Cocker Rescue!
