AZ Cocker Rescue is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
Arizona Cocker Rescue was founded in 2002 but the passion to
rescue dogs began long before. Founder, Joey Penniston, began
working with various Valley rescues many years prior. She had a
particular love for cocker spaniels and began focusing on a small
cocker rescue. Many dogs were able to find new and loving homes
and from there, the rescue grew.
Today AZCR welcomes all breeds and focuses on rescuing dogs
from the county shelters that are currently on the "e-list" which
means they are going to be euthanized. Many "e-list" dogs are
wonderful animals, just abandoned or lost, scared and confused.
Maricopa county cares for over 55,000 animals each year.
Unfortunately, the county shelters are not able to find homes for all
the dogs they receive, so rescues such as AZCR help care for dogs
and work to find them new loving homes.
Many of the dogs come to AZCR with minor medical needs and
some with major needs that are correctable. If not already, they are
all spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated and treated for any other
individual need. The dogs are cared for at the rescue or in foster
homes until they are adopted.
AZCR is a non-profit dog rescue that is supported by individual
donors, grants and through the adoption donations that we receive.
The money generated goes back into caring for the dogs: food,
bedding, needed surgeries, vaccinations and other medicines.
Without your donations, AZCR would not exist. We also are
supported by PETCO and are very appreciative that they offer their
store (Tatum & Bell) weekly to AZCR for our adoption events.
Whether you are looking for a new furry family friend, wanting to
volunteer your time and talents, or are in search of a meaningful
organization to financially support, please consider AZ Cocker
Here at AZCR, the tail-wagging thank you’s never end!
