Sadly, little Princess, who also had been going blind for the past year, also needed enucleation. She began developing glaucoma, which is a very painful swelling of the eyes which ultimately leads to total blindness.


We are delighted to say that both girls are now doing very well.

CCR takes in as many of the most unadoptable dogs on the state's euthanasia lists as we can provide appropriate care for.


Currently we medicate 18+ animals twice a day, taking over 2 hours every morning and another hour at nightto do this! We also provide 

prescription diets for a growing number of our dogs. 


CCR is home to 2 three-legged dogs, another missing her foot due to cruelty and abuse, four blind dogs and another partially sighted only in one eye. We care for four totally toothless seniors including a few with broken or missing jaws. Others are missing the majority of their teeth.


Spring 2021, we have FOUR dogs with Valley Fever, the debilitating and expensive  fungal infection who may be in medication for their lifetimes.


Only with YOUR help can we provide for these Special Needs animals.

​Your donation in any amount helps THEM.

Facing Covid 19


The Covid 19 virus is a primary issue facing all of us these days. This new, dangerous respiratory disease is spreading throughout the country and we all wonder what we need to do...

What we  are doing at CCR:
We are following the CDC's advice of having certain supplies on hand: food, cleaning supplies and medications for us. But Cochise Canine Rescue has updated and stocked up on all the food and treats for the animals as well as having an additional month or more worth of medications. 


Over the past year we have spent thousands of dollars insuring all the animals will have what they need. 


Given the spread, we are in semi-quarantine to insure we will not bring the virus in and can continue to provide the animals with the care they require. 


Further, CCR will NOT have our annual musical fundraiser until the country is healthy once again.

Meet Fischie and Matui


We received a call in March 2020 from family members when the owner of 5 dogs suddenly died in a traffic accident. We were able to help get three pure-bred dogs placed in breed specific rescues (thanks to PACC911 and other Friends) but two elderly mixed breed girls were not accepted by any of the rescues...So we took them.


Matui (left) now called Mattie, had an ongoing ear infection which took weeks and multiple medications but has been treated. However the 9 year old was not allowing other dogs near her initially. It took a year, but she has integrated into our pack...


Sadly Fischie, the 13 year old (right) began having seizures and was found to have Insulinoma, a deadly form of pancreatic cancer. Even with hospitalization, Fischie passed in early January 2021. We miss her greatly....

Two of our senior Chihuahuas, Bark Bark and Princess, had to have eye enucleation (removal) in January and February 2021.


Above is Bark Bark. She has been with us for 6 years. She arrived blind and toothless. In order to keep her from getting Glaucoma, she was seen regualrly by Eye Care for Animals in Tucson and had several types of eye medications which ad to be put in her eyes daily to every-other-day. But this past winter, one of her eyes began to have a bloodly discharge seeping from it. As a result, she needed enucleation.


Barkie ended up requiring two surgeries when one of the eye sockets did not heal properly. But she has healed well now and is doing great.



It is that time of year again.....
