Can You Provide a Foster Home for a Needy Cocker Spaniel?

tasha1Becoming a CSRNE foster parent can be a very rewarding experience. Some of the rescue cockers come to us with special needs and are not immediately ready for adoption into a permanent home. They need extra time, patience and TLC in order to blossom into wonderful, adoptable companions. Needs may include:

  • Help with housebreaking
  • Time and care for cockers recovering from surgery
  • Special baths and medication for cockers with allergies
  • Socialization and obedience training for cockers who have spent too much time in crates or tied out and away from people
  • A warm place to rest and lots of love for older cockers who need more time to find their forever homes.

Are you interested in becoming a foster home for a needy cocker? Because the foster parent is so important in helping the rescue cocker make a successful transition to a permanent home, foster parents should be able to provide the following:

  • Genuine love and concern for the welfare of the foster cocker and a willingness to learn about its needs
  • Time to provide for the cocker’s care and needs
  • Socialization of the foster cocker, making him part of your everyday life
  • Willingness to take the cocker to obedience classes and/or follow behavioral guidelines when necessary
  • Transportation to a CSRNE veterinarian and/or veterinary specialist and groomer
  • Attendance at a Foster Home Orientation program
  • LOTS of patience and a good sense of humor!

CSRNE retains ownership of the foster cocker and will pay for all medications, veterinary care, special diets, training costs and other approved expenses.
