The seven a.m. accident came toward the end of a multi-day drive from the Los Angeles area to an adoption event in Edmonton. Two volunteer drivers for a Saskatchewan-based dog rescue organization reportedly escaped with minor injuries after flipping their SUV and a horse trailer full of crated dogs on Alberta Highway 2, just south of Highway 27.
Tango will be a "forever in care" Paws in Need dog
Posted Breed: Husky / Beagle / Mixed (medium coat). Edmonton is a two year old, husky/beagle mix. He was recently rescued from a shelter and his foster gave him up just days later. He's currently in boarding and needs a foster so he can get healthy and find his forever home. He is heartworm positive and undergoing treatment. He is a very friendly boy who loves people and other dogs. He knows some basic commands so it's likely he's had some training. The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is an additional $10.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
Finding Your Best Bud We know what you're thinking
Our primary mission is to rescue dogs from high kill shelters in the Los Angeles region. There are more than thirty high kill shelters that are within a 125 mile radius of Los Angeles County. The amount of dogs in shelters are overwhelming. On any given day there can be between two and seven cockers PER shelter! We have a "worry list" that can have up to sixty cockers on it. These are the dogs in immediate danger of being put to sleep.
We can't save them all, we can't even save ten percent of them. But instead of giving up, we are determined to save whom we can, one dog at a time. Because the shelter dogs are at most risk, we rarely accept owner relinquishments.
Camp Cocker has a volunteer partner in Edmonton, Alberta. By bringing adoptable Cocker Spaniels to Edmonton, a city which rarely sees cocker spaniels in local shelters, not only are we finding homes for these animals, we hope to put a dent in the back yard breeding and puppy mill situation.
