Vancouver Island-based Angels Under Our Wings (AUOW) cocker spaniel rescue is seeking foster and adoptive homes in the Comox Valley.

This small, non-profit is dedicated to rescuing cocker spaniels locally, as well as focusing on high-kill shelters in L.A., where there is a greater need.

“We are proud to say we live in a province filled with many animal lovers who treat their animal companions like family members and don’t discard them as if they were a used piece of furniture,” says AUOW Founder Lisa Atterby. “When we look at placing a dog in a new home, we have a process in place to ensure it’s the best fit for both the dog and the people involved.”

Several AUOW adopters already live in the Comox Valley, and the rescue is hoping to find more homes for these wonderful dogs, all of which are spayed or neutered.

Cocker spaniels are not recommended for families with young children, as they are particularly sensitive dogs that are not very tolerant of the sometimes unintentional, overzealous displays of affection from children, such as having their ears pulled, being lied on, or being hugged to tightly.

AUOW will have a booth at Pet Lovers Lane in Simms Park on June 22. Meet some of the volunteers, dog ambassadors, and adoptable dogs, like April. Also visit us online at www.angelsunderourwings.com and “like” us on Facebook.
