Central Ohio Pomeranian Rescue

Delaware Animal Shelter

Delaware, Ohio 43015
COPR is a rescue organization that originally started in 2012. I personally got involved in rescue after purchasing a pomeranian from someone i thought was a "reputable breeder" in 2005. This was before i was educated on puppy mills/dog brokers, etc. My pom passed away at age 6 to a auto immune disease. During his illness i began researching the "breeder" and discovered she was a dog broker for a ohio amish puppy mill. I was inspired to raise awareness and get involved in rescue. I began by networking senior poms in kill shelters all over the country with my friend Kit. We would reach out to rescues and make them aware of dogs in need, raise pledges to assist rescues with needed vetting, and arrange pull and transport assistance. We started a page on Facebook named "Saving Senior Poms, Inspired by Chance" to assist with building supporters for our cause. Chance was our first official save, he was in a southern Ca shelter and saved from death row. We had a lot of supporters but few rescues willing to step up and help the senior dogs so i decided i couldn't sit back and watch these dogs die! I started COPR to save seniors never expecting we would grow to the point we have now. I work long hours arranging rescues, transports and insuring all needed vetting is done on each dog that we save. I answer emails, screen applications, and arrange home visits for potential adopters. I also foster, my personal favorites being fear aggressive and long term seniors. We have a wonderful group of volunteers and fosters that continues to grow all the time! I do what i do for the love of the dogs. Watching them come out of their shell and learn to trust is such a inspiration. Seeing a once fearful, abused dog in a loving forever home makes all the hard work and long hours worth every minute!
