Our Foundation Awards Funds To Rescue Group

Cocker-Spaniel

It is our great pleasure to tell our readers about one of the latest recipients of financial aid from The Dr. Jane Foundation. This month’s featured beneficiary is a committed group of rescuers dedicated to improving the lives of abandoned, abused and neglected Cocker Spaniels in California.

The Second Chance Cocker Rescue is run by an all-volunteer staff which oversees more than 80 dedicated foster homes that care for their rescues. In continuous operation for over 13 years, this committed non-profit group has fought to improve the lives of Cocker Spaniels across the state of California. Without governmental financial assistance, they rely on fundraisers, adoption fees and the generous donations from their community of Cocker Spaniel aficionados to cover the costs of day-to-day operations.

This rescue has made a tremendous difference in the lives of hundreds of Cocker Spaniels. In any given year, they foster more than 150 dogs and locate forever homes for more than 200. Doing an excellent job of promoting their favorite breed, the average time a dog is in foster care is only 30 days before finding the perfect adoption match.

Their most innovative program is HALO, a service which provides a safety net for care should a pet parent enter Hospice care or pass away and no obvious caretaker remains for the pup. A modest fee ensures that these Cocker Spaniels will be fostered by caring pet parents until they are placed in a new adoptive family. In addition to HALO and their day-to-day rescue services, Second Chance also provides sanctuary homes for elder and chronically ill dogs with little hope of adoption.

Second Chance plans to use their financial award to help achieve their goal of increasing the number of rescued dogs by 30%. Because their work is so outstanding, and the need was so present, the Board’s decision to fund this application was a simple one.

Here are just a few of the sweet, loving Cocker Spaniels who are currently in foster care awaiting their chance to become someone’s new best friend …

Zoey
Zoey

This little girl is a gentle soul. Zoey loves everyone she meets, including other dogs, and is a delight with children. By all accounts, she is "an amazing dog" that will make a welcome new family member. Her current caretakers guess she's approximately nine years old. Right now, she's living in Encino with her foster family.

Harry
Harry

This handsome fellow is a purebred Cocker. Sweet and oh-so-mellow, Harry is happy to go along for whatever ride's in store. If you want to throw a ball, he's ready to fetch. If your speed is more Netflix and chips, he's your ready companion. Harry is easy going with other pups and loves to meet new people. Do you have the perfect quiet, mellow home to match his personality? He's in Romoland and needs a foster, or better yet, an adopter!

Nina
Nina

A petite and intelligent girl, Nina is the consummate "people dog". Plus, she's a bit of an attention hound, so she would prefer to be the prized only dog so she can monopolize all the attention and cuddles. Sweet, fun and playful, Nina's got the zest for life. Even though she's a bit shy with strangers, she's a true "velcro dog" with her caretakers. Like Harry above, she too is currently in Romoland looking for a foster home while awaiting her forever family.

Our Foundation Awards Funds To Rescue Group

Dog laying in the grass

It is our great pleasure to tell our readers about one of the latest recipients of financial aid from The Dr. Jane Foundation. This month’s featured beneficiary is a committed group of rescuers dedicated to improving the lives of abandoned, abused and neglected animals in Wisconsin.

The Green Lake Area Animal Shelter is run by a small, paid staff lead by Janine Rubeck, Shelter Manager, with more than a dozen dedicated volunteers regularly lending helping hands. In continuous operation since 1993, this committed non-profit group has sought to enhance the lives of both companion animals and people through education, adoption and compassion. Without governmental financial assistance, they rely on fundraisers, adoption fees, as well as donations to cover the costs of day-to-day operations.

This rescue has made a tremendous difference in the lives of more than 12,000 animals! Their “Open Door Policy” means that no animal will be turned away due to age, health, behavior or lack of space. The group treats every dog and cat with care and respect, and aims to find each pet kid the perfect forever home.

Green Lake Area Animal Shelter sought financial assistance to further the vital work of its low-cost spay-and-neuter program. This program has been integral to its operations, offering these services to local Wisconsin residents. While the scale of the efforts depends largely on funding, their dedication to this cause is unwavering. They have seen firsthand the positive impact that these surgeries have in controlling overpopulation and reducing the number of euthanized pets. It was our non-profit’s great pleasure to fund their grant proposal. For their meticulous work on behalf of their community, all of us here at Life’s Abundance salute the hard work of this amazing group.

Foundation Award to Forte Animal Rescue

Whiskey

It’s time once again for an update from our non-profit charity, The Dr. Jane Foundation. This month, we’re excited to share news of another financial award to a noble group of rescuers based in Marina del Rey, CA. Founded in 2002, Forte Animal Rescue received their first grant from our non-profit in 2011, so this recent application allowed us to see how this group has flourished over the last four years.

Staffed solely by volunteers, this small non-profit has big aspirations. Not only do they save dogs of all sizes and shapes (and the occasional cat, too), they devote considerable time and energy to improving their community with education initiatives while also working to stem the tide of pet overpopulation.

Foundation Award to SW Collie Rescue

Shasta

More good news from our non-profit charity, The Dr. Jane Foundation. This month, we’re excited to reveal another financial award, this time to an amazing group of rescuers based in New Mexico. A breed-specific rescue group, this organization places abandoned collies and Shetland sheepdogs with foster homes until appropriate adoptive families can be located.

Founded in 2001, the rescue has grown to handle incoming dogs from New Mexico, Texas and Arizona. Thanks to the working relationships they’ve cultivated with other shelters and rescue groups in this tri-state area, they are able to locate and save dogs according to their breed-specific mission. For example, last year when a massive hoarding situation was uncovered by law enforcement in Tomball, TX, SW Collie Rescue helped with the intake (147 collies were saved). More...

Foundation Award to American Black & Tan Coonhound Rescue

The Gang

It’s time once again for an update from our non-profit charity, The Dr. Jane Foundation. This month, we’re excited to share news of another financial award to an amazing group of rescuers based in Ohio. A breed-specific rescue group, this organization places abandoned coonhounds with foster homes until appropriate adoptive families can be located.

American Black & Tan Coonhound Rescue (ABTCR) is a not-for-profit association that’s been in continuous operation for a decade, and we congratulate them on celebrating their 10th anniversary this year! In their many years of operation, ABTCR has helped to rescue and find forever homes for untold numbers of hounds, not just locally but all across the nation. More...

Grant Award Helps Cat Sanctuary

Kat Barn Kitties

Most of the rescue organizations who receive funding from our non-profit spend the majority of their energies trying to find loving homes for the animals they've saved. The harsh reality is, despite these heroic efforts, some animals will never be adopted.

In the last couple of decades, there’s been a dramatic drop in the rates of euthanasia. One of the consequences of more humane treatment by shelters is that the same animals who would’ve been put down are now living long lives, thanks to significant advances in veterinary medicine. Providing for their physical and emotional care can be costly, and divert resources from homing efforts. More...

Grant Awarded to All About Dogs Coastal Rescue

Scooby

This holiday season, we’re pleased to bring you good tidings of yet another financial award given by The Dr. Jane Foundation. This month’s featured grant recipient is a committed group of canine rescuers in South Alabama.

Headquartered in Magnolia Springs, All About Dogs Coastal Rescue is a non-profit organization that operates a network of volunteers. Founded in 2011, this relatively new rescue has already helped hundreds of dogs find forever homes.

Their mission is stated simply, “to assist stray, abused and abandoned dogs by placing them in loving, caring homes”. The simplicity should not undercut the scope of their efforts … nothing less than the saving of lives. By all accounts, they are focused, disciplined and willing to go the extra mile when it comes to canines in need. More...

Howling Good News for Boxer Rescue

McCoy the Wonder Boy

We’re pleased to bring you news of yet another financial award given by The Dr. Jane Foundation, this time to a dedicated group of Boxer rescuers in Florida.

Headquartered in Tallahassee, Boxer Aid and Rescue Coalition, Inc. (BARC) is a not-for-profit rescue organization that operates a network of volunteers in north Florida and south Georgia. In their decade of operation, these devoted caretakers have helped to rescue and find forever homes for hundreds of Boxers.

With no facility, fostering represents the backbone of their enterprise. While not confined to metropolitan areas, the majority of foster pet parents live in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Pensacola or Tallahassee. Known for their superlative care, BARC actually has a waiting list for homeless Boxers until a foster home becomes available. More...
