Greetings, Friends! When we heard about this celebrity driven fundraising website, we at Abandoned Angels just knew that we had to participate. You see, all of our dogs have celebrity status to us ... they are the stars in the constellation of our lives and in the lives of the families they join. Abandoned Angels is a 501(c) corporation and member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. Since 2003, we have rescued over 1000 homeless dogs (both Cocker Spaniels and other breeds), primarily from shelters in urban NYC and the surrounding area. We rescue from the heart, without regard to age, health or temperament. We are strictly no-kill. Some of our dogs are adopted very quickly, while others remain with us for life in some form of foster care. We are run solely by volunteers and rely exclusively upon donations to rescue and rehabilitate the dogs in our care. When you adopt, foster or donate to our cause, you become a permanent part of our extended rescue "family" and an integral part of our dogs' journey on to the healthy, happy lives they were always meant to have.
