Rocky & Sage

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.


CSRNE has 3 very happy tales!!!

These dogs would love to find a home that they can call their own.
Please look at their stories – go to our menu under Adoptions -> Adult cockers
Will you be that person who gives them a forever home?
Sizzle & Roxy, a bonded pair – Toby (and his tennis ball) – Sienna, a young mom.

Four year old Sizzle (black) and two year old Roxy (buff) are definitely a bonded pair. They adore each other but they also like people and get excited when someone new comes to meet them.

Sienna - Puppies mom.

Sienna – Puppies mom.

Toby is so adorable and very loving. He loves to run and play catch with a tennis ball, and he’s very good at it. He loves tummy rubs and he is very content in the car. He would need a fenced in yard to run and play. His markings are beautiful. He’s a happy little guy who needs love and will give it in return. Sienna is only a year old, but she was a teenage mother and had a liter of five beautiful puppies in June. Once her puppies were old enough to play Sienna wanted to romp and play with them


Scooter would love to have a home with you.

This very people oriented affectionate cocker lived most of his 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 Scooter’s past. 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. Karen is even hoping to get him his canine good citizenship certification.
