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.




The new Jake

The “new” Jake

Meet The New Jake!

Jake’s owner brought him to the vet to be euthanized because she could not take care of him anymore.  He was filthy and so badly matted that it was difficult to tell his head from his tail.

The compassionate vet and his staff did not euthanize Jake and instead, they shaved him down and discovered “a very happy and sweet boy”.  Jake didn’t object to the stressful shaving procedure – in fact he gave kisses to everyone helping him.

Jake immediately showed his caretakers his enthusiastic, playful, upbeat personality.  He was delighted to be given toys and particularly loves his squeaky hamburger toy!

Jake is fine with other dogs and the office kitty.  The vet techs all say he has an excellent temperament (and vet techs really appreciate a dog with a good temperament!).

Jake has been thoroughly examined: his abdominal ultrasound and bloodwork are all normal.  His eyesight, hearing and teeth are also good.  He has a few skin warts and a fatty tumor – both typical of an older dog.

Jake is a healthy, active, playful 13 year old cocker who would love a home with someone who will appreciate his outgoing, enthusiastic personality and give him the care and love he deserves. (Visit Jake on our dogs for adoption pages)



Both dogs have hearts full of love for each other – and both have heartworm disease.

These precious cockers were found curled up together on the side of a dirt road just waiting for heap. They were tired, hungry, thin, very dirty and very sweet.

Lulu and Sammy, we named them, are a true bonded pair – they are devoted to each other. Sammy especially cannot be out of sight of Lula who is probably his mother. He cried pitifully when Lulu was being bathed in another room; as soon as lulu heard him she tried to get to him.

Both dogs are in foster care; they’ve been cleaned up, given fresh new bedding and nutritious food.

Lulu and Sammy are scheduled to see the vet this week for chest x-rays and any other diagnostic  testing necessary before beginning the slower, but safer treatment for ridding them of heartworm (and Lulu’s bulging eye will need immediate care).

This heartworm treatment plan is expensive – a thousand dollars per dog – but thanks to you and our Joey Fund Lulu and Sammy will be healthy and ready for a loving new home in about two months.

How can you help? Come to our Joey Fund auction on Oct. 15th!  Bid high and help Lulu and Sammy! Or be a friend to Lulu and Sammy and make a donation to help pay for their vet care.

It’s that time of year.  Order your gorgeous CSRNE holiday wreath and centerpeice.

Join us and make it a holiday tradition!

Rescue work is expensive. We need your support!  Each and every one of these items you purchase helps us keep up with our everyday expenses; spaying, neutering, medications, vaccinations and routine preventative care. The real budget busters come when extensive, life-saving surgery is needed.
Thank you for your support!
