Dolores Rodrigues founded Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue because of her love of the breed especially her first cocker spaniel named Rudy. “Rudy was the start of it all, the reason I love this breed so much and always will.” says Mrs. Rodrigues. “Our hope is that dog lovers from across the tri-state area will come to our fundraiser to support our rescue so that we can continue to save the countless other dogs that need our help.” says Mrs. Rodrigues.

Fundraiser for Rudy

Rudy is one of Minnie’s pups. Minnie was pregnant and recued by Robin from a sad situation. Rudy was fortunately adopted to a loving family. Rudy tested positive for parvo virus after coming down with vomiting and diarrhea yesterday. He’s being treated at the vet and is expected to pull through. Robin is doing a fundraiser to help pay for his medical expenses. Fundraiser includes sale items on Robin’s site as well as a drawing for one of Polly portraits. See Robin’s thread for more details.
