She needs to be placed asap as I can't afford to meet her needs any longer. If I can't place her by the end of November I will have no choice but to surrender her to the humane society I feel she deserves better than that for all she has done for me.

Have you tried contacting any Cocker rescue groups? They might be able to foster her, especially since she is a retired service dog.

Desi, what's going on Hun? Is there anything we could do for you so you won't have to rehome her?

I have tried cocker rescues here in florida, I have tried the humane society, I have tried animal services, they all say to put her down because of her issues and 3 veterinarians have refused to put her down because she has too much life left in her. She is over due for a haircut my clippers burned out I can't afford to buy newe ones and I can't afford a groomer. her meds have all run out and I can't afford to get more. I am stuck between a rock and hard place with her. no one will take her vets won't put her down and I have no money to maintain her.

I found a list of Rescues on the internet in FL. Hopefully, you haven't contacted these people and maybe one of them can help you. I hope a few are close to you. Good Luck!
