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

Rating: 5 stars  

Oldies But Goodies (OBG) is an amazing organization which is entirely comprised of non paid volunteers. This group works tirelessly at saving as many dogs as possible; this includes dogs that are not specific to the cocker breed. As a failed foster (I adopted Dexter, pic attached) and current volunteer, I am amazed at the coordination that takes place to rescue dogs. OBG takes in dogs who require extensive and expensive medical care. This group has rescued so many dogs that have required upwards of $5k in medical care.

From transport, to vet intake, to fostering to adoption, OBG volunteers are completely engaged in every step. Having volunteered with other rescue groups, I am so impressed with OBG because the mission of this group, is truly in the heart of all its volunteers.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with OBG and it has been a wonderful experience. There is constant communication between the OBG board and the membership. As a relatively new foster for the group, I had many questions and it was great to get such speedy and helpful responses. The volunteers in this group, truly have the right perspective- Finding good homes for the dogs. That is the goal and I have not seen our group steer away from that.

I am also an adopter from OBG and must say the process was thorough, but simple. To me, communication is the most important aspect to making sure volunteers as well as potential adopters understand the process. OBG does a great job with this, be it from emailing members, to publishing newsletters, or ensuring the web site it up to date. I am really impressed with this group and am so happy to have found a rescue group to be a part of.

OBG is extremely proactive in saving dogs and finding them good homes. The people in this rescue group truly care for the animals they are saving. It's refreshing to be part of an organization that puts the needs of the animals before anything else.
