We love being a fellow non-profit that supports this wonderful agency that does so much in one of the poorest communities in the state!
The are always using innovative ways to solve the many problems that tend to occur for a rual non-profit but the really need the support and donations of a commuity that loves animals and wants them to go to loving homes Per haps the thing we love most, is how the will take in the sick and disabled, to get them well and into forever homes!
We are proud to support this non-profit as one of our partner agencies. We at Animals in Disaster, Empty Bowl Pet Food Pantry are blessed to be given $675,000 of goods tp distribute in Arizona from the wealth of Phoenix (2014 IRS990). When we are giving healthy pet food and veterinary pet food we give some to this wonderful rescue that cares for so many of the abandoned pets in this county. At a poverty rate of 28%, this Rescue has taken on the hardest job of operating in the most rural areas between Benson and Sierra Vista .They are a member of PACC911 to raise the chances of the animals they rescue getting adopted.
Because they save the animals we care for the most: seniors, sick/injured and disabled. We are proud to add our vote to the others FOR this Outstanding Rescue!
This group rescues some of the worst cases of neglect. Wonderful, compassionate people. Thank you for all you do.
The Director of this rescue is a true animal advocate. She gives so much of her energy and funding to help rescue and place abandoned dogs, as well as educate the public.
Cochise Canine rescue is an amazing organization that helps with dogs that would most likely not be alive if it wasn't for this rescue. It is run by an amazing women who has devoted her life to saving and helping animals that would otherwise be dead or homeless!!
Cochise Canine Rescue works tirelessly to help dogs throughout the southwest. Many of their dogs are carefully placed with loving homes, and others simply spend their lives with Sybil and Jeffrey. All donations - 100% - go to buy food and medicine for the dogs. I support them and will continue to do so.
I have been to CCR and watched how wonderful they are with all of the animals - not just the dogs. They truly care and do wonderful work.
Cochise Canine Rescue has been amazing. They truly care about the placement of the animals. They wanted to be sure they had a good fit for each rescue. I admire their passion and compassion for their rescue! Thank you for our dog Wally. He would not be with us if it was not for you!
Cochise Canine Rescue specializes in taking in senior and handicapped animals, although we do have dogs available for adoption form time to time, primarily injured dogs who are now healthy. CCR takes in the animals who have run out of time and are facing immediate death due to being on a euthanasia list at a regional animal control facility.
We do what very few other rescues do and provide love and safety for these wonderful animals.
The founders of this non-profit CARE more than anyone I know about all living things. They work tirelessly to save those that need it most (a blind dog, a dog with 3 legs ... the least adoptable that are unlikely to live if not for the care of this organization). They will do whatever possible to get these dogs adopted in to loving homes and get them any medical care that they need. If the dogs are not adopted, they provide sanctuary for life. I could not speak more highly about the founders and this organization. Angels among us.
Cochise Canine Rescue provides care, shelter, and love to dogs who are often overlooked due to health issues or physical "defects". They've given a second chance to many dogs who would otherwise be forgotten, or worse, euthanized. Cochise looks beyond the special needs and sees every dog for what they are: an individual who deserves care and protection.
There was a huge need for a dog rescue in Cochise County and this is what Cochise Canine Rescue does with compassion and dedication! They put their heart into helping so many dogs!
The staff is very committed, dedicated and caring.
Sybil has done such amazing and wonderful things for helping displaced parrots, I have visited her initial rescue/sanctuary, and it was an awesome experience. I'm so excited to see her now doing the same in helping with dogs, and saving so many of them from euthanasia.
Wonderful people doing good work. Really caring about animals
to find a rescue of quality is a rare thing in the state of AZ. There are a few good ones. Cochise goes above and beyond. I do much networking in the rescue community, donate towards professional evals of dogs that may be improperly listed, and have a special affinity for the older dogs, and the one with health issues as those seem to be the hardest to place.
Cochise took in a dog that went in and out of the shelter system, who had his leg amputated, a hernia and was fearful to boot. They took him into their sanctuary and are prepared to keep him for life, to feed, love and take care of him medically. No one else was coming for this beautiful boy after being months at shelter, and they stepped up.
They most recently took in a blind senior boy found with wire around his neck, and have integrated him into their pack. They are not afraid to take in what most consider to be the "throw aways" senior dogs, animals that have valley fever, are blind, have renal issues etc. They take care of all their medical and other needs. Many are adopted out to wonderful foster homes, and they have some beautiful older and medical animals in their home. They are a rare find in a rescue these days, when so many only focus on puppies, and so called easily adoptables... more so the quality of the care they give exceeds many.
Cochise Canine has grown from just a few adoptable dogs in 2012-13 to caring for an ever growing number of elderly and handicapped dogs and other animals.
We are always striving for the best care of the animals at CCR. Our Director/Rescue Coordinator Sybil Erden, when not hands on medicating or feeding, spends much of her time writing medical grants for the chronically ill or "special needs" animals.
Right now CCR is working with another local rescue and Community Services of Southern Arizona to establish the first Southern Arizona pet food pantry to help animals in rescue and indigent individuals in our regions. CCR is a great organization and I am proud to be the President of the Board.
I have been very involved in the rescue community in Arizona now for over eight years. I am called upon daily for help as I have made a name for myself within the rescue community. It is from that point of long term rescue commitment and involvement that I write:
I have met very few real deal's who have left their ego at the door and their heart completely open without an agenda. Cochise Canine Rescue is one of the few unspoken hero's in the rescue community in southern
Arizona that operates with their heart completely open without an agenda, other than helping animals in need: The abandoned ones, the abused ones, the ones who were left for trash and those who were dumped at the shelter.
Cochise Canine Rescue changes lives, informing the Arizona rescue community of what is taking place in the world of animal rescue in smaller communities in Arizona. Sybil Erden, CCR's co-founder and rescue coordinator, is, hands down, one of the most remarkable woman I have met in the rescue community, whose integrity and intelligence runs deep. She doesn't just say yes when it comes to an animal. She says YES I CAN AND DOES AND WILL.
Cochise Canine Rescue leads by example with the integrity that one is either born with or not, and is an organization lead by people who inspire me to continue on even when facing adversity and pain .
The care they give their animals is not just a 9-5, feed and release care. Cochise Canine Rescue gives ALL their animals 24/7 love, compassion, respect and honor. The selfless work Cochise Canine Rescue does with these animals is not only commendable, but well deserving of any support this rescue can attain.

I adopted a special needs puppy that will stay with Cochise Canine Rescue for her natural life. This organization rescues dogs from high kill shelters. The dog's physical and psychological needs are taken care of no matter cost or time needed to heal. Special needs dogs not able to be adopted live with this rescue for their natural lives. Dogs able to be adopted are allowed to go to good homes. I have been an active supporter of this rescue since it's inception. Cochise Canine Rescue sets the gold standard for rescue!!!!!
The people who run this charity also run other non-profits that I have contributed to. I trust them explicitly. They have dedicated their lives, 24/7/365 for the benefit of those animals who have no protector, no one to speak for them. I admire and honor them, and wish I could do more to sustain them. I know not a cent get's wasted where their management of funds is concerned.
