I have adopted six cockers from OBG over the years and find the organization is just terrific to work with.
Over the past years, I have adopted six cockers from OBG The volunteers have been wonderful about ensuring that I understand the specific needs of the dogs and been available for questions after the adoptions took place
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.
I work at a vet clinic and help provide medical care for many of the dogs they bring in. Their willingness to do whatever is needed is simply extrordinary and inspiring. So many in need, but once they are saved by oldies but goodies cocker rescue, they never have to fear or "need" ever again.
Everyone you work with is very dedicated to helping the animals. I have been volunteering for over seven years now and have made some wonderful friendships.
Everyone I have ever met that is involved with OBG is caring, helpful and committed to make a difference in the life of the dogs that are rescued. Absolutely wonderful group.
I volunteered with this rescue when I started working at a Vet's office where they brought the newly rescued dogs in for initial health check ups and any medical care they needed. I saw that they were a top notch rescue with many wonderful volunteers and were truly dedicated to helping the animals find great homes. I fostered and did home checks and helped with events until I moved to Arizona. We adopted one of our foster dogs and she is still alive and well. I continue to donate and follow the OBG Cocker Rescue to help support them any way I can. Best rescue I ever worked with!
Thanks to these folks, who helped get over 400 dogs out of a puppy mill that fateful day back in 1998, I have one of the most loving and coolest Cocker Spaniels ever! And since that day, they have helped rescue hundreds of other Cocker Spaniels, puppies and "oldsters" alike, and go above and beyond to make sure they all get the medical care they need before finding them foster homes and their perfect "furever" homes. Lily may have her "issues" from being raised in a puppy mill but I can't imagine my life without her. Thank you, OBG Cocker Rescue!!
If it wasn't for this wonderful organization, I wouldn't have my Lily. She was one of hundreds that OBG helped rescue from a puppy mill in PA in 2008. OBG goes above and beyond to help these dogs, getting them out of bad situations, getting them the medical care they (sometimes) desperately need, and then making sure they are placed in the perfect home to give these dogs the wonderful loving lives they so richly deserve. I can't thank them enough for what they do for these wonderful fur babies.
