I have been a pet sitter for many years now and I know the care it takes just to board a pet.
But being in the rescue area of pets is an extreme and deeply hearted loyal position. Only certain people have what it takes to really rescue and care for unwanted pets. When I learned about Cochise Canine Rescue I was so impressed of the dedication and hard work regardless of what it took, their dedication is beyond words. Pets are rescued and nurtured and truly cared for. This is a place that should be recognized for such heartful actions.
They deserve all the best recognition and help to continue with their dedicated service to the loving creatures that need it so bad.
with all my love

Sybil answered the phone at 11:30 at night to help me save a dog and she got the dog pulled off the euthenasia list and I sent a friend of mine to get the dog. The dog's write up didn't match his behavior when the foster got him home but it had a happy ending as she ended up adopting the dog and keeping him for her own. Sybil made it happen and this is how she does things one dog, one animal at a time, she gets out of bed, does what needs to be done no matter what the hour then she tracks to the dog to be certain it is safe and loved and sent me to do the house check. My friend has a mini ranch with parrots and dogs and turtles and the dog needed training but the foster/adopter adores him. Sybil was involved every step of the way and without her guidance and caring heart this dog and many others would never get the opportunity to have a life. She is a committed rescuer and she puts the animals needs before her own. She never takes a bow but she does run a tight ship! The rescuer/foster got her up early the next morning and I had her up half the night for yep, you got it, a dog, a dog who deserved a chance. Thanks Sybil for all you continue to do and the miracles you continue to create and thanks to Jeff too!!!

I met Sybil online when she had this dream of a parrot sanctuary and traveled to Phoenix to check her and the dream out. What I found was remarkable, a caring, loving home dedicated to throw away parrots and a myriad of animals who had found heaven and a woman completely giving all she had to these creatures. I became involved with her effort almost immediately taking over her database and building it up over many years. I followed her to The Oasis Sanctuary in Cascabel, AZ continuing working from home as the Sanctuary grew to be one if not THE most incredible place on earth for parrots who there found a permanent forever, safe and loving environment, thanks to Sybil's incredible talent,creativity and sensitivity.

Sybil, reaching her goal moved on to create CCR with her gentle, loving partner and husband, Jeff, bringing in from the beginning, dogs that had reached the deadline for survival. She took in what others defined as "hopeless" dogs and rehabbed them, placing those that could be placed and making a wonderful home and environment for those who would be difficult if not impossible to adopt out to forever homes. As she did at The Oasis, she also made a home for other animals with no choices. She will go without if an animal is in need and will work to exhaustion to make sure all of the animals never go without medical care, emotional care and all necessary care in order to save them and give them a home and what they need. She is known nationwide and respected and loved by those of us who know the importance of caring for these lives of those in need. Jeff is a loving, calm and caring individual who adores the animals and makes CCR, along with Sybil, a "real" important rescue. The two of them take the dogs no one else wants and gives them the love and nurturing, care and most of all gives them their lives back.

I have been involved in dog rescue in AZ for about 7 years and became familiar with this rescue, CCR about 4 years ago. The one thing I know for sure about CCR, is that they consistently go the extra mile to help some of the worst cases of animal neglect I have seen. They show unwavering compassion for dogs who are blind, need amputations, have chronic diseases and the like. They are true heroes for so many who have suffered. Thank you to CCR.

PACC911, a non profit 501c3 umbrella organization, has 100 partner groups known as PACC911 partners, who we work with. These organizations must sign a code of ethics to remain a part of PACC911 each year, and must display professionalism in all walks of the rescue journey.. displaying exceptional care of the animals in their charge and showing respect and courtesy to all the public, including those they adopt to and those they might decline.

Cochise Canine Rescue has been a PACC911 partner in good standing for years and we are proud to have them as part of our PACC911 family.

CCC has taken in many animals with serious medical conditions and always has taken the extra step to see that they heal and thrive.. ending up in wonderful new homes, or in some cases living out there lives at the CCR Sanctuary where they are loved and accepted as family.

Cochise Canine Rescue is a wonderful animal rescue organization. I donate on a monthly basis and also give a portion of my music income (I'm a musician) to them. I've visited their facility (home). They are a "hands on" group that take in hurt and sick animals and provide care and love. I'm not a wealthy person but I'm comfortable and confident that my donations are going directly towards the care of these animals. Sybil and Jeff (owners) have dedicated
their lives to this effort. Thank God for people like this...

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.

I know I already reviewed CCR, but that was back in 2015. Sometimes you need to renew your vows to something, your dedication to something or someone, to not only bring attention back to it, but to solidify how strongly you feel about something worthy enough to share with others. I can't say enough about CCR and the two that run this rescue, Sybil and Jeff.

When you open your door to rescue animals, it doesn't just stop there - one opens their hearts, and leaves their egos at the door. One gives up what most people take for granted. Your time is not your time anymore. You are devoted to those animals who have no other place to go giving them a renewed sense of worth and love that they either have lacked, or were pushed aside because their owners didn't care anymore or ever did - some left at trash cans, abused for sport, others just abandoned in the desert to die, and for the lucky ones, if you can call it that, left at the shelter shaking, scared, confused, missing the owners they will never see again.

Rescues like CCR go above and beyond the call of duty. They love each and every dog as if they are the only dog on the planet. If you are considering donating to a rescue, I would HIGHLY SUGGEST you consider CCR, and if you can, go on their monthly donation schedule. I have been working with CCR for years. I have come to know Sybil and Jeff personally. They have dedicated their lives to the rescue of animals, and it's not very often they will turn one in need away. That is why your donation is so important. All the money goes to the care of these animals. They not only give them the love and medical care they need, but they also make sure each and every home their rescues go to are well vetted. They take the time to do background and home checks to ensure their animals are going to a viable, loving home.

One of the best non-profits in the state if you ask me because they have integrity. I can say that as I have fostered for CCR for years. I can't say that about all rescues, but I can certainly say that about CCR.

Pictured below are my 7 in sanctuary due to either medical or behavioral issues that are not adoptable. Not including the 4 cats I have that had no place to go. Aside from those pictured, I have fostered animals that have come and gone throughout the years - through the help of CCR. I have been involved in rescue for years now and just when you think you have seen it all, you haven't. Rescue work can be extremely heartbreaking, but holds so many rewards! Nothing better than looking into the eyes of an animal after the animal realizes he/she's been rescued. No words. It's god felt!

Consider a donation today. It will be money well spent. God Bless!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
