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.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic all adoptions are on hold until further notice! 

Because of the current restrictions due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are unable to complete our adoption process.

The adoption applications we have received have been carefully reviewed and are on file.

We will begin adopting cockers into permanent homes as soon as the restrictions are lifted.

Please call or email us with any questions.

We are eager to begin finding forever homes again for our rescue dogs.  

If you have a cocker or know of a cocker that needs to be rescued, please contact us.

Thank you.

Jake and the One-eyed Peeps



A couple of months ago, when Jake developed a corneal ulcer in his left eye, his foster Mom and Dad tried valiantly to save his eye with round-the-clock medications.  But Jake’s cornea ruptured and became very painful.  He had to be rushed to Tufts Emergency Room where the veterinary ophthalmologist had to remove his eye. 

Jake was just fine shortly after surgery – he never skipped a beat!  The Easter Bunny heard of his remarkable recovery and filled Jake’s Easter Basket with adorable one-eyed Peeps!  (The Peeps were actually for Jake’s Mom and Dad of course, and Jake got his favorite treats!)  

Thanks so much to all of you who support the Joey Fund, Jake got the emergency specialty care he needed because of your help! 

P.S. Jake doesn’t know about social distancing! He still sleeps curled up between his foster Mom and Dad!

Randy Price has been a wonderful CSRNE supporter for 22 years and he is now officially retired from TV news in Boston. Our volunteer Elizabeth Z. Maglio created this great tribute to Randy. Please take a moment to enjoy it!




So because of the Social Distancing we are all sitting around on the Couch or Table! 

How about shopping for some custom CSRNE merchandise from one of our great supporter’s website? 

You get a great item that shows you support us and CSRNE gets some money to help our rescue cockers!

Scooter is an adorable, sweet, 9 year old Cocker Spaniel whose owner recently passed away and he needs medical help from CSRNE.  Scooter has been in a shelter for weeks where they have been treating his ears and giving him medicated baths for his skin allergies. 
Both of Scooter’s ears are severely infected and calcified, and both will need TECA (total ear canal ablations) to relieve him of the constant pain and allow him to live the happy, healthy life he deserves.
We have just placed Scooter in a foster home and have appointments for him at Tufts with a dermatologist and for his TECA surgeries.
