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.


Buddy post surgery        


Both Buddy (on left) and Corky (on right) had lifesaving surgery last week. Corky had bladder stones and underwent a cystotomy and a urethrostomy. Buddy had end stage ear disease and needed ear ablations as well as a cherry eye repair.

Both of these complicated procedures are very expensive but thanks to the generosity of our friends  we could give Buddy and Corky specialized care they needed.

Update: Good news, both Corky and Buddy recovered quickly from their surgery. Buddy is now back at home with his foster mom and dad and Corky was adopted the night after Christmas. Thanks to all who wished them well.

Please consider making a special holiday donation this year. Your gift will help other neglected cockers get a second chance for a long and pain free life.



The 2015 CSRNE Calendars are available to order now. Great for gift giving!

Scooter’s happy ending!

This very people oriented affectionate cocker lived most of his life alone, in a kennel in the basement. He had an automatic dog feeder and a dog door that went out to a small fenced area. Living such a solitary life, Scooter missed out on all the world’s sights, sounds, and smells that make a dog’s life so interesting (to say nothing of the lack of human warmth and interaction.)

But now Scooter’s catching up on all he missed out on for so long. Thanks to trainer, Karen B., who is fostering Scooter for CSRNE, Scooter is now out and about savoring all the many pleasures he missed as well as learning to be a well trained dog.

Update – December 30, 2014: After six months of foster care and training with Karen B., Scooter found his forever home. His new home includes a sweet, calm greyhound, an older cat and 2 horses which he found fascinating.

CSRNE is profoundly grateful to foster mom, Karen, for the many, many hours she spent training, grooming and loving Scooter. Karen’s efforts made this happy ending possible.

For Corky, Buddy, Princess and Scooter and for all the other cockers who found loving homes this year – a happy ending for 2014
