We are a Rescue Organization for all Spaniels, and are not a shelter. We take in unwanted, abused, abandon, owner surrender spaniels and crosses.
Our dogs live in loving foster homes until they are adopted. All of the dogs are spay or neutered if old enough prior to placement and reference checks are done on all adopters.
We make every effort to carefully match each Spaniel with the right family to maximize the adoption's success.
This mission is carried out by an all volunteer group that fosters, transports and, is involved in fund-raising for spaniels in need.
The rescue is seeking Volunteers, Foster parents/families, and donations. ANY help is appreciated.
Dedicated to my deceased rescue dogs, TIPPY, CHEROKEE, SALLY & JESSE JAMES who taught me about unconditional love, compassion, and to continue on my path of saving lives.
I started rescuing injured and abandon animals, nursing them back to health at a very young age. I dreamed of the day when l would start my own rescue.
The dream of rescuing dogs in need was a dream for as long as l can remember and knew someday it would become a reality
Years later it seemed the natural thing to do was start a dog rescue and Second Time Around Spaniel Rescue was Founded.
The goal of the rescue is to find the right adoptive home for each dog that enters into our program
We also want to educate the public on the different spaniel breeds, their personalities, requirements including diet, exercise , grooming, the importance of spay or neutering, and lifetime commitment involved in owning a pet. It is important to research the breed of dog and making sure that he/she will fit into your lifestyle.
The Spaniels are part of the Sporting Group, which were originally bred to flush out and retrieve game birds.
Because these dogs are highly intelligent, loyal, active, they should be provided with daily walks as part of their exercise program.
They should never be considered to be disposable and thrown away like they have no feelings.They suffer from hunger, thirst, depression and abandon issues.
Too many puppies/dogs end up in high kill shelters or pounds when they grow out of their cuteness, grow up to be too big, chew one too many shoes, get sick too old.
