Review for Oldies But Goodies (OBG) Cocker Rescue, Newington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As I think about what I'm grateful for this Thanksgiving, my dogs top the list. And that was made possible because of OBG. I continue to be amazed by the fact that it's an all-volunteer organization, and is still run so professionally. The group is open, transparent, and does all they can to help cockers, spaniel mixes and honoraries of all ages. While the number of dogs we've saved each year isn't in the thousands, the exceptional care provided to those that are lucky enough to be rescued makes it seem like one in a million to me -- and something I am proud to be part of.

As a volunteer, foster, adopter and Board Member, I love OBG! In a world of the "next big thing", I think it's a testament to OBG that they are quickly approaching their 20th year in rescue (2016). They do the basics right and are a great group.

As yet another one of our foster dogs went off to her forever home this afternoon, I was yet again reminded of what an excellent group this is. This particular foster, Darla, was only 1 yr old and was a stray, taken to a local shelter. OBG swooped in, got her vaccinated, spayed and treated her infected ears. Today, this little pup trotted off with her new family and gave us a quick look back, as if to let us know "I'll be just fine!". And she was able to do this because she was saved by OBG.

As the President of OBG (yes, I'm obviously a little biased!), I have an inside look at the selfless volunteers, loving adopters, generous donors and innocent dogs that make up this incredible organization -- and I am often in awe of them! The fact that so many wonderful things are made possible by this all-volunteer organization continues to make me proud and want to work even harder to keep saving dogs' lives. On a personal note, my life wouldn't be the same without my wonderful fur kids, Dasher and Millie, and I have OBG to thank for that!
