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.




But it’s not easy and you’re a dog and you just lost your home and you’re dirty and it’s hot outside and you’re covered with big heavy mats that pinch your skin and your teeth and ears are infected and hurt and you itch all over and haven’t seen a vet or groomer for a long time.

So many cockers need our help at this time of year. A lot of New Englanders move during the summer and can’t take their dog or they just can’t afford to care for them anymore.

Whatever the reason almost all of the cockers we’re rescuing now have been neglected for a long time and need a lot of expensive veterinary care – but most of all they need a person who cares – a nice comfy bed – they need to be home.

In the meantime, we need your help!

  • Donate to the all important Joey Fund! This fund pays for all our veterinary expenses and decreases rapidly in the summer.       CLICK HERE to donate. 
  • Attend the Joey Fund Auction on October 3rd! All proceeds from the annual auction go to replenish the Joey Fund. It’s a lot of fund and you’ll meet a hundred other people who love their cockers. CLICK HERE for auction info.
  • Donate an item to the auction! The hardworking, frazzled auction committee will love you! Jane would love to hear from you. Email Jane at info@csrne.org
  • Adopt or foster a cocker!  Cockers love air conditioning, laying a shady tree on the cool grass, or going for a sunset stroll on the beach. Summertime is more fun when you share it with a buddy. The cocker will love you, we’ll love you, and you’ll feel really good!

See you October 3rd at the Joey Fund Auction!

We just rescued adorable, perky seven year old Tessa. Our vet said she also has juvenile cataracts and hopefully is a candidate for surgery.

Donations to the Joey Fund are always needed, especially now. Please consider making a donation to the all important Joey Fund and help give Tessa the gift of sight. Please click here to donate to the Joey Fund.
