SPECIAL “PACKage” SPONSORSHIPS

Lucky21ESRA is often called in when law enforcement closes up a puppy mill or other packs of Springers are rescued from similar deplorable conditions. Although their needs may not be specifically medical in nature to qualify these dogs for our Special Needs program, their needs definitely require special handling, special expertise, and special volunteers to step up and help get these Springers rehabilitated and ready for Forever Homes. Financial support is always welcomed and needed for these "pack rescue" situations.

Florence12In late October 2016, ESRA rescued a group of dogs who were surrendered to a shelter from a hoarding situation. Read about the Florence Pack.

An urgent need in mid-2014 was for 21 Springers confiscated from a breeder in Alabama. Read all about Alabama's Lucky 21.

Later in the fall of 2014, we rescued a group of eleven beautiful Springers in Missouri! Follow the story of the Missouri Eleven.

“EXTREME MAKEOVER” SUCCESS STORIES

Before After

We have a feature on the website which highlights some of the beautiful Springers who have blossomed under ESRA's care and who, after overcoming hardships, neglect and abuse, have gone on to happy Forever Homes. These dogs were not officially in our "special needs" program, but ESRA volunteers promised to see each one of them lovingly cared for and restored to their best health. Read about these success stories and see how ESRA donations earmarked for "any Springer in ESRA's care" help to bring other lucky dogs to this featured section!

The ESRA team in Ohio took on the task of rehabilitating and rehoming over twenty Springers in April 2011.
