Arkansas: Senior Cocker girl found in a ditch needs rescue ASAP

Good Samaritan helped save this senior girl found in a ditch, but she needs help finding her a home ASAP. 

 *From Tammy: We rescued a cocker or cocker mix out of a ditch. She was all covered in mud, wet and cold. It took 2 hours to cut the mats off. She even had twigs stuck in her skin. We took her to the vet as she was weak and had diarea. She was anemic and had whip worms. We treated her with panacur and antibiotics. We gave her a pill for fleas to that will last a month. So, now she's all better and I don't know what to do with her. I have 5 kids of which 4 are 3 years old and younger. They torment her badly. We have had her a week and 2 days now. Oh and vet said she appears to be spayed.
If you can help me or know who can please let me know. I have done all I can. Vet said she's about 10 years old. I wish I could do more for her but its not fair for her with the kids pulling on her and climbing over her. Vet said if we didn't get her when we did she wouldn't have made it. She was covered in fleas and already anemic. Running a fever and could nearly walk from being so week. She's much better now. It's amazing what a week and some vet care will do! Thank you.
