Review for Cochise Canine Rescue, Pomerene, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've known Sybil Erden, the founder / director, for about 25 years. She has been active in saving animals all those years and even before that. The American Sanctuary Association, accredited Cochise Canine Rescue in 2015. Accreditation requires that a sanctuary meets high standards for animal care and housing and does not breed, sell or trade animals or use them commercially. Their accreditation is still valid.

Review for Cochise Canine Rescue, Pomerene, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’m writing on behalf of Cochise Canine Rescue, an animal sanctuary in Benson, Arizona, that provides lifetime care for special needs dogs who are unadoptable, abused, abandoned, elderly, ill, injured, disabled, or neglected, and temporary care for some who are adoptable. The American Sanctuary Association is an accrediting organization that certifies member sanctuaries to be in compliance with a variety of animal care standards and housing requirements. Besides a detailed application process, we visit all sanctuaries to assure that their facilities and animal care routines meet our guidelines. In addition, member sanctuaries are not permitted to breed, sell or trade animals, or use them for commercial purposes. Cochise has been an accredited member of ASA since May, 2015.

I have also known the Cochise director and founder Sybil Erden since 1997. She is a dedicated animal advocate, and her knowledge of how to care for a wide range of animal species is extensive. ASA’s site visit found Cochise to have suitable living space, high quality nutrition, and all the animals in her care receive daily personal attention from her, the staff and volunteers. Cochise also uses several veterinarians who care for the medical needs of the animals who have a challenged medical history.

ASA enthusiastically endorses and recommends Cochise Canine Rescue for support from foundations and individuals.
