​A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...



You can make a difference in the life of a senior rescued dog!


November is Adopt-A-Senior Month! To help us raise emergency funds for our senior Angels that need medical care, Meredith G. is bravely running the 26.5-mile Philadelphia Marathon on behalf of Abandoned Angels

on November 23rd


You can cheer Meredith on and help give back by sponsoring her run. 100% of the proceeds earned from this marathon fundraiser will go towards our senior Angels, many of whom (though not all) are pictured in the collage below.

Meredith Guarco and Charlie, adopted from AACSR in 2009, run along the Outer Banks in North Carolina. 






"This November, I'll be running my first Marathon in Philladelphia, and would like to run in honor of an organization that helps make the world better. My father, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer last December, has asked that I not run to raise money for men's health, but instead for a shelter that saves dogs' lives (he, too, adores spaniels, especially our Charlie). I'd like to honor his request by running for Abandoned Angels."


- Meredith Guarco

Like most senior dogs, the older (but wiser) Cocker Spaniels entering our rescue suffer from various chronic illnesses that have not been addressed and require life-long care, including Cushing's Disease, arthritis, cataracts, glaucoma, bladder issues, ear infections, dental disease, and in some cases- injuries that require surgery... just to name a few.  Almost all of them require medication which is very costly to us.

Sadly, these poor senior souls (like TonyAldy, and Danny Boy who was recently found on the side of a highway with a bag tied around his head) are the dogs that are most commonly abandoned by their previous owners, dumped at the shelters or worse to face a most certain death. They are also the LEAST LIKELY to be adopted in the shelter system and would be euthanized if it were not for our rescue stepping in to save them.

We cannot continue to save seniors without your support!

Please help us help our seniors by sponsoring Meredith's courageous run in Philadelphia.
