Welcome to Cocker Spaniel Rescue Of New England. CSRNE is one of the oldest and largest cocker rescue groups in the country. We are composed of many volunteers throughout New England dedicated to rescuing and placing homeless cocker spaniels.

Since our inception in 1987 hundreds of abandoned or unwanted cockers found homes with caring, loving families. By networking with animal shelters, other rescue groups, and veterinarians CSRNE has saved, improved, and extended the lives of one of America’s most popular breeds.

Your donations make it possible for us to give needy cockers the care they need before we can place them in their forever home. Your support gives these cockers a second chance for a long and happy life. To read full president’s message click here.




Hannah did not get to this level of neglect in just a few months. It takes a long time to get this badly matted and infected. Her hind end was so cast matted that she had trouble walking – in fact she was so desperate that she kept trying to pull the mats out herself.
To add to her distress, Hannah couldn’t see because both of her eyes were full of a yellowish sticky discharge and she couldn’t really open them all the way.
Along with not being able to see well Hannah ear canals were very swollen so she couldn’t hear much either. But even though she was frightened she wanted to trust people and she wanted their help. At first, she was nervous and snapped at strangers who came too near her head. Fortunately she trusted our wonderful vet and she calmly let him examine her.
Hannah was lightly anesthetized and the awful mats and tangles were shaved off. Of course, her skin and ears are infected but our vet is very optimistic that with a regime of antibiotics, weekly medicated baths and Cyclosporine drops for her eyes she will recover nicely – and Hannah is only three years old.
The staff at the vet hospital were shocked at her pathetic condition and decided that along with medicines and baths she also needed some spoiling. The reported that she was much better after her grooming and on her ear treatment. she liked being patted and she leaned up against people for comfort. They said, “she’s a real sweetie.”
We would love to find a foster or permanent home for 3 year old Hannah while she’s being treated for her eye, ear and skin conditions (we will also have her spayed at some point). Hannah is housebroken, quiet as a mouse in a car and has lived with children.
If you have room in your life for a gentle needy cocker, please call 603-547-3363 or email info@csrne.org. It will be so satisfying to watch Hannah bloom into the beautiful cocker she was meant to be.


Tessa Marie_2015-sm


We just rescued adorable, perky seven year old Tessa. Our vet said she also has juvenile cataracts and hopefully is a candidate for surgery.

Donations to the Joey Fund are always needed, especially now. Please consider making a donation to the all important Joey Fund and help give Tessa the gift of sight. Please click here to donate to the Joey Fund.



Trevor – A beautiful happy dog who needs a special home.

This friendly, handsome small cocker had a loving elderly owner who could no longer care for him. Consequently Trevor is now staying at his vet’s boarding facility.

All the people who know Trevor say the same thing, “he’s such a sweet dog.” Trevor is always happy to meet people, young and old, and he especially loves to be taken outside for walks or playtime. In fact, he enjoys eating a snowball or two!
Trevor behaves like a gentleman when he meets other dogs, but his real passion is cats! Trevor grew up with a kitty and they became devoted friends and companions to each other.
Recently he met two kittens at his boarding facility and he was euphoric! He immediately wanted to play with them and he followed them everywhere. (Click below to see their video)
The staff at the vet’s office have all fallen under his spell and spend as much time as possible playing with him, rubbing his belly and taking him out for short walks.
In 2009, Trevor developed a genetic condition where the lower intestines became “leaky” and protein is lost in the digestive process. Trevor received excellent care when this happened and he’s been stable and healthy for the past six years. He must eat a Science Diet I/D low fat dog food. And he’s on a regular daily regimen of various enzymes and antibiotics. (Financial assistance is available to help pay for his medications).
Trevor needs to be taken out 3-4 times a day to piddle and poop but he can “hold it” for long periods. At the vet’s facility his last outing is at 6:00pm and he can hold it until they arrive the next day at 8:00 am.
Trevor’s vet said that he’s essentially a healthy dog who would do very well in a quiet, structured home where he is cuddled and loved, fed his special diet and gets his medications at feeding time. He needs a home where he can be taken outside on a regular schedule and ideally there would be a dog-friendly kitty.
Trevor is 10 years old and his vet would be happy to talk to a prospective adopter and answer any questions.

For more information about this small, special cocker boy please call CSRNE at 603-547-3363 and leave a message.
