Boykin Spaniel Rescue, Inc. was founded in 2000. Since that time, the Organization has grown to over 300 volunteers in the US. They have one, part-time, administrator; all other aspects of BSR is done through our network of volunteers. Some foster, some transport, and some lend their talents-- either with the dogs or in various other ways.
Their mission is to raise the funds necessary to make sure that every Boykin Spaniel that needs medical or emotional assistance get that help, and then is placed in a forever home. Sometimes, that home is a Permanent Foster Care home, where that dog will remain for the rest of his/her life, with the support of BSR.
Funding from Grey Muzzle will help to support Boykin Spaniel Rescue's new program, "Behavior Therapy & Rehabilitation for Boykin Spaniel Sassy Seniors". BSR is experiencing more dogs with socialization and emotional problems, manifesting in behavioral issues that need to be addressed. With only a limited number of "experienced" fosters capable to take in a permanent charge, this program will specifically work to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome these at-risk, purebred, Boykin Spaniels.
The Sassy Seniors program will provide educational support and advocacy for those who support senior dogs.These funds make sure that every Boykin Spaniel that needs medical or emotional assistance receives that help and then is placed in a forever home.
