Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Wisconsin and Illinois -- primarily.

We do some intakes from and placements in Michigan, Iowa and Minnestoa. Occassionally intakes from various other states as well when great need for us to do so exists due to things like a big mill operation being closed, etc.

About Our Rescue Group:

Shorewood Cocker Rescue, Inc. has been in existence since 1985 and we have rehomed hundreds of Cocker Spaniels since then. In 2001 SCR became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a Board of Directors. Our organization is run by volunteers and all of the dog's taken into our program are placed in foster homes where they live as much loved family members until we can find an approved and appropriate forever home for each of them. We make a life time commitment to every dog taken into our program. We take as many cockers as we possibly can as private surrenders, from shelters, from places where dogs are just held for 7 days and then put down if not reclaimed, mill and commercial breeding operations. We do not turn a dog down based on it's age and are very successful with rehoming senior dogs as well as rehilabitating and shy mill dogs.

We do what we do out of love for the breed and wanting to help as many cockers needing help as we possibly can.

Come Meet our Pets:

We hold many adoption events in various cities and locations in Wisconsin and Illinois. Upcoming Events are posted on our Scheduled Events Page at our Website.

Our Adoption Process:

Our Adoption Process is clearly defined on a page on our website as well.

All wanting to adopt must complete and submit an adoption application. There is a non refundable application processing fee of $10 prior to any application being process. References provided on the adoption application are checked. Once approved for adoption, family is asked if there's a dog currently on the website listed as available for adoption that they are interested in. The foster home for that dog contacts the party interested providing any updated information and answers any questions. We do require a home placement visit for placement of our adoptables. If that goes well, we do require an Adoption Contract be reviewed and signed.

Adoption Fees are subject to change on an as need to be basis but currently are:

Under 1 year old - $300.00

1-6 years old - $250.00

7-9 years old - $200.00

10 years and older - $125.00

We hold many adoption events in various cities in Wisconsin and Illinois where people wanting to meet our dogs are welcome to do so. The dates, times and locations for these events are posted on our Scheduled Events Webpage on our website.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
