Sometimes we have Cockers come in who we know will not be able to be rehomed. In most instances this is because they are very old, and often quite ill. Rehabilitating them and then rehoming them would be too much for these old darlings, who often bond closely with their foster carers while being nursed back to health. Others are emotionally damaged or have neurological conditions meaning they are difficult to manage. They stay with us in permanent foster care, and receive all the love and care they need, provided financially by CSRA and hands on by their foster carer. They remain with us for the rest of their days.
