I have fostered eight dogs for OBG. I like helping people get a dog to love. Everyone associated with OBG that I have met, either in person or by email, has been wonderful. It is great to see the transformation these dogs go through to make them more adoptable.

I'm a new volunteer with OBG and I cannot say enough for the folks I have talked/emailed with and personally met. They are an amazing group of dedicated volunteers, working together to create life saving opportunities, EVERY WAY they can, all for the love of dogs! Amazing group and I'm proud to be a part of OBG!

Oldies But Goodies (OBG) Cocker Spaniel Rescue is an outstanding organization that saves about 300 dogs per year. They have contacts up and down the East Coast and knowledgable shelters and veterinarians know to call them if they have a cocker or a cocker mix that needs rescue. OBG has also rescued dogs that are not cockers because shelters will often ask it they can take the animal. They even had an honorary dog--a cat! This organization is exceptional in that they provide vet care, necessary surgeries, vaccinations, and dentals. Veterinarians in the Northern VA area work with them and provide necessary care at a reduced rate and many provide boarding until a foster can be established. They also work to heal dogs that have been abused. OBG is a volunteer only organization and has no paid workers. They have hearts of gold and do what it takes to save an animal.

This is a wonderful all-volunteer rescue group. All of the volunteers are passionate about rescue and saving the lives of these precious babies. They work diligently to find homes for the furbabies in the rescue. All monies received go for the care of the dogs they are responsible for. I have fostered and adopted many of their senior and special needs cockers over the years and am honored to work with such a wonderful group of people.

I have adopted 4 dogs thru OBG over the years. My husband and I are so impressed with the dedication of the volunteers who work with OBG that we have joined them in their efforts to help find loving homes for these deserving dogs. We have fostered several dogs and found them wonderful homes. My husband now helps with home checks as I assist in fund raising. I have never met such a professional and devoted group of volunteers and we are proud to be associated with them. OBG is a truly dedicated group of wonderful people.

My husband and I adopted our 2 Cockers from OBG and were so impressed with the organization that we began volunteering and helping out with fund raising for the pups. We've now fostered 4 lucky Cockers who are now placed in wonderful loving homes. We continue to work closely with these amazing dedicated people. We are very proud to be associated with these incredible volunteers.

I have been involved with OBG since adopting my first Cocker Spaniel in 2004. I starting volunteering in 2010 and now have three OBG alumni. I think OBG is one of the best run rescues I have ever seen and I frequently hear other members of the dog community - vets and dog care to name just two -- rave about OBG and the care we take to help dogs get well if they are sick and then place with a good forever home. I enjoy the camaraderie of my fellow volunteers and how hard they all work every day to save another dog. I'm very proud to be a member of OBG!

OBG is extremely proactive in saving dogs and finding them good homes. The people in this rescue group truly care for the animals they are saving. It's refreshing to be part of an organization that puts the needs of the animals before anything else.

We adopted our cocker, Daphney, last year. We admire and highly respect what OBG does each and every day for these wonderful animals. Everyone we have had contact with has been wonderful! We love OBG! I have also done a couple home checks close to where We live.
