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.


Buddy post surgery        Corky_2014-c


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. Both of them are out of the ICU, feeling much better and barking for attention!

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.

Thank you and happy holidays from all of us at CSRNE.



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

Corky needs a foster home asap!

Corky_2014-c     Corky_2014-b

This sweet, happy, small five year old cocker boy has developed bladder stones and he had surgery on December 9. We’d love to find a foster home who could keep him warm and comfy during his post-operative recovery period.

He’ll probably have to wear a head cone until the incision heals and he may be incontinent for a short while after surgery. He was totally housebroken before he developed bladder stones and will very likely go back to being reliably housetrained again.

Corky lived with children and our volunteer who met him fell in love with his happy, friendly personality.

Can you help. Call Gerry Foss at 603-547-3363 and leave a message or email Jane at

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.
