NOTE: CSRNE DOES NOT SHIP DOGS and therefore CSRNE’s cockers are placed only in carefully screened homes within the 6 New England States.

tasha2.0Please take time to read the adoption process. We hope it will answer your questions about how CSRNE’s adoption process works.

We sincerely hope we can be of service to you. We ask that you fill out this questionnaire completely. It is designed to help you in finding the Cocker Spaniel most compatible with your lifestyle. Our ultimate goal is to match the right dog with the right home for the enduring happiness of both dog and owner. Please complete the entire form and then click the submit button.

Because the rescue cockers are Second Hand Dogs and have not had the benefit of having bonded with their new family since puppyhood and because we usually have no history on whether or not the rescue dogs were socialized around young children, CSRNE has decided that we cannot adopt to families with children under the age of 7 years.   We realize that this policy may rule out some homes that would otherwise be wonderful but our first priority must be the safety of children.

CSRNE reserves the right to refuse an application if the home or environment is incompatible with the needs of a rescue cocker.

We realize that this process takes time, but we feel it is critical to thoroughly assess the needs of both dog and owner so that we can truly place the right dog in the right home for the enduring happiness of both.

Please read the Adoption Process and then download and fill out both the Adoption Application and the Restraint Agreement and mail them to CSRNE at the address given on the form. Your application CANNOT be processed without a signed Adoption Application and the Restraint Agreement. Because of the high number of applications it may take 7-10 days before one of our volunteers can gat back to you.

Please print out and mail both the ADOPTION APPLICATION and the RESTRAINT AGREEMENT with your application.
