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.




Our newsletter, the Cocker Home Companion, mailed out on Thursday, Dec. 14th. You should be receiving your copy within 3-5 days. 

The holidays are a time for giving – please don’t forget our homeless needy cockers who rely on your generosity.

Thank you, happy holidays.

President’s Letter Winter 2017

October’s 20th Annual Joey Fund Auction was such fun! It was wonderful to see old friends and make new ones. Lulu and Sammy, our 2017 Joey Fund poster dogs, were charming hosts and happily greeted everyone. Both totally recovered from heartworm disease, they looked marvelous.

I only wish the CT Animal Control Officer who found Lulu and Sammy as pitifully emaciated strays, had been there to join us in celebrating their transformation. When she called CSRNE a year ago, I heard the strain in her voice as she described their condition. “They’re such sweet dogs,” she said, “but we can’t afford to treat them. They deserve to have a life. Can you help?”

I also heard her relief when I relied, “Yes, we can.” CSRNE was willing and able to get involved, to step up and provide support in a difficult situation. It is gratifying to offer assurances to Animal Control Officers, caring and conscientious professionals who see so much abuse and neglect, that we are here for them, too.

Thanks to you, our dear friends, for giving often and so generously. Your contributions of all sorts and sizes, financial and otherwise, help CSRNE make a positive difference in human and canine lives every day.

Warm wishes for a safe, happy holiday season.

Angie and Maxie

Both Angie and Maxie are every bit as happy and outgoing as they look in this photo.

Maxie and Angie are brother and sister and have lived together in one home their entire lives. Angie adores her brother Maxie and according their owner “she cannot live without him.”

Both dogs are everything a cocker should be: they love to be around people, get tummy rubs and check out what’s on the kitchen counter. Their current owner says they’re fine playing outside in a fenced yard or just “chilling and hanging out” with people in the house.

Both Maxie and Angie love children and have had a lot of exposure to elementary age grandchildren, as well as an infant. Read more about Angie and Maxie.



Five year old Jada and her best buddy, six year old Sadie, are a truly bonded pair – and they’re both blind. Click here for more info.



Sara and Chloe are as sweet as they come. Their foster mom says “they are both funny, social dogs who love attention”.  But Sara will need eye surgery so we need a special foster home. Click here to read more.
