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.




One of our rescue highlights this summer was “Saving Miss Daisy.” Daisy is a sweet nine year old cocker who had developed pancreatitis – a painful condition and difficult to treat. But after five days at a vet hospital on IV fluids, antibiotics, blood work and several ultrasounds she started to improve. Now, a month later she’s eating, much stronger and on the road to recovery. The only problem is she loved her recovery diet and decided boiled chicken, tuna and cottage cheese is the way to go. She can now jump into the car (she loves car rides) so her owners are back to “Driving Miss Daisy.”

Treating Daisy was expensive but very worthwhile. Your generosity and support of the Joey Fund made this possible. Thank you from us! Woof from Daisy!
