Matted Cocker Spaniels - Waiting for Loving Homes



When a suburban Essex County resident had grown too old and too tired to care for her Cocker Spaniels, she neglected one of their most important needs -- keeping them groomed. Their fur grew in an unkempt manner .... and expanded into hair balls, hardened masses and made every movement they took a very painful effort. They were trapped in their own hell. The elderly woman contacted the Society and we took in the three 7 year old Cocker Spaniels who were altered.

It took the Society several hours and many resources to carefully cut away the imprisoned pooches where the hardened hair was in their ears and their legs. There were melon-sized mats on their rear legs that became hardened. Long, twisted hard mats were removed from their ears. In many areas, the skin had been pulled away leaving raw, rough patches.

The three Cocker Spaniels -- Coco, Leo and Pearl are doing just great! They are happy with their new-found freedom and enjoy running in the huge pen at Popcorn Park. This is one of the best holiday gifts they could have imagined -- someone taking the time to shine these diamonds in the rough. They are waiting for a lifetime of love at the Forked River facility. For more information, contact us, call the Society at 609-693-1900, or visit them - just off Exit 74 of the Garden State Parkway - Go left for 7 miles after the toll.

Won't you give them the greatest gift of all -- the gift of a new life.

You can see additional photos of the Cocker Spaniels being groomed here.

And below you can see the results of the grooming efforts --
