Every once in a while Camp Cocker Rescue gets a call about a senior dog sitting in a shelter who is in dire need of help. Senior dogs are often overlooked by families due to their age, health condition, emotional or physical state. We strive to reach the animals in the worst conditions or those who have been involved in an accident. These dogs have the least likelihood of ever being adopted (or even rescued by other rescue groups) yet they are still very deserving of a home. Because it is so difficult to find homes for our dogs of a certain age(or situation) they become part of our Forever Foster Program. What this program achieves is placement in a stable foster home where they can live out the rest of their days. These foster homes are not like any other homes: They are one-of-a-kind and extremely rare. They offer a loving home where these special dogs can live out their 3rd act. These homes are patient, kind, and willing to care for any (and often many) medical need that presents itself. In the mean time, Camp Cocker will cover the costs of their care and medical for the rest of their days. This is a wonderful program that allows these dogs to get placed into loving homes with families who are dedicated to caring for them and could possibly be the first time these dogs feel love and patience. Bringing in a Forever Foster dog is not uncommon but quality foster homes are. We are always in need of homes that are willing to open their doors to a senior/major medical dog. For we never know when we are going to get the call and there are thousands of senior dogs each sitting in their concrete shelter stalls waiting for their own rescue story.
