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

care for.

We medicate twice a day, taking over 2 hours to 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.

Currently we have two dogs with Valley Fever, the debilitating and expensive to treat 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 week we have spent HUNDREDS 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 Our New Members: Fischie and Matui

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


Fischie, now nick named Squishie, is 13 years old. She recently had dental work and a large tumor surgically removed from her back. We are delighted that it was not cancerous! She has fit into our "pack" quickly!


Matui, now called Mattie or Too-too, has an ongoing ear infection which is being treated. However the 9 year old is shy and while she has fallen for Jeff and myself, she is not allowing other dogs near her at this time. We will give her the time she needs...

Companion Animals and Covid 19


Questions have been raised about whether our animals can get Covid 19. It is speculated that Corvid 19 began in animals (perhaps bats) and mutated to cross over to people who, as we know, have been spreading it person to person.


None the less, in China, pets are being abandoned on the streets and murdered out of ignorance and fear. One can only hope this comes to an end!! (Do not open this article if you are squeamish!)




The dogs who tested a weak positve are now suspected of having the virus in its fur due to being handled by his sick owner. In the article linked below, the dogs' fur was referred to as a "fuzzy door knob" in other words a surface able to hold the viral germs.

Neither dog has gotten sick with Covid 19. It is doubtful that dogs can transmit Covid 19 to people, but if you are sick, or know someone sick, remember that anything touched can hold pathogens. In other words it is not the dog or cat that could make someone ill, rather a sick person's pets may be able to hold germs in their fur for a period of time. So wash your hands after handling/petting strange animals...


Here is a link to the article on the first dog, a particular Pomeranian:





While there  are a large number of corona viruses, including simple corona viruses which cauase the common cold - there are some which only animals can get (and not pass to their human caregivers.) The Covid 19 virus does not appear to be transmitable animal to human either. Below is a link to a very informative article written by Dr. Niels Pedersen, a distinguished emeritus professor at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine: 

"A Year and a Half ​With Bina"

An artist named Mark Barone created an incredible art project of 5500 portraits of dogs representing the number of dogs killed in ONE DAY in the US. To view the video called AN ACT OF DOG please click below. It is AMAZING and worthwhile...
