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.



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.
