OBG Cocker Rescue saves so many lives each year and has very committed members and supporters. Although it's called OBG Cocker Rescue, they always have other types of dogs on the site and swoop in to save so many dogs from shelters or other situations, Cockers or not. I am so thrilled I discovered this organization and have met so many amazing people and seen so many great rescue stories. I've fostered for them for over a year and look forward to fostering many years to come!

OBG helps cockers and often other non cockers of all ages. They are an all volunteer group and are tops in my book.

We adopted our Hokie from OBG 7 years ago and believe that it is the best rescue group we have ever been involved with. A tireless group of volunteers who go the extra mile every single day for these wigglebutts! We recommend that anybody interested in helping or adopting cockers get in touch with them!

During Christmas 2007 my husband and I adopted our mixed-breed ( cocker and King Charles spaniel ) Hokie, from OBG. They so graciously gave us a dispensation to bring him from Washington DC to our home in No. CA. and it has been a tale of pure joy for us ever since we laid eyes on him! We could tell that OBG had done a great job of taking care of him from the time he arrived at his adoptive home until we took him to his forever home with us. In 45 years of being dog owners and lovers, we've never had a dog like Hokie. He has to be the most intelligent and loving animal in this world! OBG is a truly wonderful rescue group, from the bottom to the very top and we would recommend them to anybody who would like to volunteer or adopt a dog!

I love OBG! I have fostered twice for them. They're an amazing rescue group and have huge hearts. They care so much about every dog, and family adopting them. We live in a world where not everyone has compassion for animals, so their work is endless as people dump their dogs for various reasons. Regardless of age, medical condition, or past, OBG believes every dog deserves a chance at a better life. I'm proud to be part of such an awesome rescue :)

I adopted my first dog from Oldies But Goodies years ago. He was wonderful and I enjoyed our time together, of course it's never long enough. Since then I have adopted 3 other dogs from them. OBG does so much to help dogs(not just Cockers) I don't know how I can thank them for all the joy they helped bring to my life.

I got my beautiful Aly approx. 7 years ago and she's been a wonderful addition to our family. Cocker spaniels are the best and this Rescue Org really takes care of their animals and they do such a great job! Thank you, OBG!

First of all, our family loves animals - at one time we had 4 dogs, 3 cats, 11 fish and fed the wild birds and deer that come into our yard. So, adopting another animal is crazy, but I feel in love with Emma when I laid eyes on her at the OBG dog show at a local Petsmart. After some contemplation, we decided to become foster parents. One of the topics that impressed us about this group is that their care for the animals goes beyond finding them homes. OBG provides medical, dental and specialty care for the animals during their tenure with OBG so that the adopter receives a healthy and happy dog to bring into their family. We wouldn't foster if we didn't believe in the organization and its mission.

Over the years we have had a number of cockers from OBG, we keep coming back for the SENIORS, it sad that most people do not want them. Everyone that we have had were just precious. The one we have now is 15yrs young and we hope and pray that she will keep going and going. I had a Great Uncle many many years ago who introduced me to cockers and now that I am older? I introduce my cocker to as many people as I can. I just wish #1 OBG had shows out my way and #2 it wasn't so expensive to adopt.....I use to volunteer years ago when you had shows out my way......Thank you OBG for all the good that you do. And thank you God for all the lovely cockers...

We were looking on line to find a poodle to adopt - our previous poodle passed away about 6 mo before. So just guess how surprised we were to find our "forever" baby on the Oldies But Goodies web site- our rescue poodle's name is "Angel" and she weighs only 8 1/2 lbs. Oldies But Goodies (OBG) rescued her and helped nurse her back to full health (had to remove all but 4 of her teeth). We were so impressed with everyone we met from OBG and found it so cute that our "Angel" was an honorary Cocker Spaniel! This organization is outstanding! They rescued over 300 pets the previous year. We attended their rescue picnic (lots of cute games for the doggies) and our "Angel" proudly took part in the adoption parade of tons of rescue cocker spaniels on the soccer field as part of this picnic. We regularly support OBG with an annual donation because of the wonderful work they do!!

Four years ago we were looking to add a member to our family. OBG was recommended by a friend who had adopted and fostered many pups.
Prior to the recommendation we had contacted several other rescues and they had not returned inquires or were extremely rude. We were pleasantly surprised at how organized, knowledgeable, friendly the volunteers and staff were. You could tell how much each individual we met loved the dogs and wanted to insure they went to good homes. We ended up adopting a puppy which we named Kasper(Cesar) he has been a joy and we will definitely not hesitate to adopt from OBG in the future.

OBG Cocker Rescue is a great bunch of volunteers who do amazing things to help dogs in need. I adopted a wonderful dog several years ago and admire all the work and love OBG puts into every rescue. I enjoy volunteering for them and seeing what a difference they make in the dogs' lives.

I don't know where to start in my praise for OBG. We recently received our new family member from OBG. We had been looking at different spaniels, but you can't always control who you fall in love with! We went to one of their adoption events and met one of OBG's beagles. My husband and I had each had a dog as a child, but none since. OBG has been very supportive, giving us advice and answering any questions that we have had. I've already recommended them to some friends.

i'm on a trip & luv & believe in OBG SO much, i'm advertising an OBG magnet on my truck :-) in the last month i have helped two families meet, fall in luv, & adopt their fur-ever K9. OBG doesn't just better the lives of each & every dog in our program, OBG opens the doors to happier living. We are able to do this bc our fosters learn everything there is to know about the dog in their care. they luv each one & honestly search for the best adoption placement the first time. i am SO very proud to be a part of OBG's mission--medical care for all + plenty of tennis balls & couches to snuggle with humans.

I have been one of their foster moms to the rescue kids. I took in the "bad boys"- the ones that came to OBG because the prior abuse and mistreatment from owners. I took the time to re-train these great 4-leggers to be adoptable and well-adjusted with manners. Everyone of them had a hidden personality and when they blossomed, they were so happy and full of joy! It made me so happy and sad to find them a home-- sad because I would miss them so much and happy that would get the life they deserved.

Every dog deserves another chance from Senior dogs who just need a home for their last wonderful chapters of their lives to the 2 year olds who want to explore life with you.

OBG is one of the best organizations -- they put the dogs interests first and foremost. OBG foster parents like myself have the opportunity to vet prospective owners to be sure they cockers get good homes. They truly care!

Know that by adopting one of OBG's kids you will get amazing support and love from this large extended family. And if the dog doesn't work out for whatever reason, OBG will graciously take the dog back with no questions asked.

If you can't adopt, then your donation of either time or money will save one more dog as well.

I highly recommend OBG to anyone who wants to adopt a rescue. And I'm partial to the older kids listed who sometimes are harder to adopt. They are trainable, mellowed out and are just happy to hang with you and family with a warm bed. I find they are most grateful!

I work with OBG from time to time to photograph some of their harder to place fosters or senior adoptables. Everyone I have met, from volunteer, to Board President, has been wonderful -- they are truly committed to their group and their mission. They participate in many local events promoting their organization and their animals, and their volunteers and booth attendants are smiling and helpful. They are also very active using social media and e-newsletter blasts. I always enjoy my interactions with them (and their dogs)! I work with a number of groups and OBG really is stellar in its performance.

We adopted our wonderful "Parker" in April, 2013. We also own a Brittanty spaniel. The organization was wonderful, efficient and so caring that the dog found the right place. I sent pictures on his progress and they ALWAYS contacted me back and was nothing but positive. All medical records, rabies tag etc were supplied when stated they would be and the continued follow up is wonderful. We really love him and are so happy we were able to adopt. We are not able to foster due to the fact I could never give them up once they were in my house lol so we can only support through funds which we will do and do with a open heart and pocketbook. Thank you so much for finding Parker for us! We could not have asked for a better dog.
