Review for Oldies But Goodies (OBG) Cocker Rescue, Newington, VA, USA
This is a great non-profit! They rescue not only Cockers and older dogs but any dog in need .... so many from breeders in the southern states which are poorly regulated, and which allow their animals to live in crowded, fenced, unclean conditions, and have major, untreated medical/surgical ailments. OBG accepts the huge expense of providing the medical and surgical treatment these dogs require, preparing them to be an adoptable family member, with the help of a large cadre... of volunteers, fosters, supportive Veterinarians, trainers, and pet owners who support the organization through donations of time and money. These are the Insiders who know when an organization uses its money carefully and wisely. One of my adopted dogs (from one of those breeders) required cataract surgery on both eyes. It was so bad that she now has glaucoma. And, she was never socialized or housebroken, living 10 years behind fencing as a breeder. OBG helped her become a wonderful dog with a good future. My other dog required eye duct gland replacement surgery and had allergies and an ear infection. After adoption, one of the glands required a repeat surgery. While not required, OBG paid for the surgery. I have been so impressed with their individualized attention to each dog they rescue, and minimal administrative expenses, that I am one who has continued to donate to support their efforts. This is a very worthy rescue organization, deserving of support.
