Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Camp Cocker is group of dog loving volunteers who have a special place in our hearts for Cocker Spaniels. Camp Cocker founder, Cathy Stanley, has dedicated herself to running the rescue full time. She looks forward to building up enough volunteers to be able to one day take Camp Cocker from a small little rescue to a more moderate sized rescue that can thrive and expand to help more dogs.

Camp Cocker Rescue is a non-profit organization that operates under the Katrina Dog Rescue 501(c)(3).

About Our Rescue Group:

Our primary mission is to rescue dogs from high kill shelters in the Los Angeles region. There are more than thirty high kill shelters that are within a 125 mile radius of Los Angeles County. The amount of dogs in shelters are overwhelming. On any given day there can be between two and seven cockers PER shelter! We have a "worry list" that can have up to sixty cockers on it. These are the dogs in immediate danger of being put to sleep.

We can't save them all, we can't even save ten percent of them. But instead of giving up, we are determined to save whom we can, one dog at a time. Because the shelter dogs are at most risk, we rarely accept owner relinquishments.

Camp Cocker has a volunteer partner in Edmonton, Alberta. By bringing adoptable Cocker Spaniels to Edmonton, a city which rarely sees cocker spaniels in local shelters, not only are we finding homes for these animals, we hope to put a dent in the back yard breeding and puppy mill situation.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process is quite lengthy, however it helps to screen out the adopters whom perhaps may be looking for a dog on an impulse and have not quite planned to make such a long term commitment. Those adopters whom are ready, are committed and have thought it all through carefully, those are the ones that end up filling out an adoption application and moving forward with adopting a dog from Camp Cocker.

Our adoption process includes: an adoption application, telephone interview, home safety check, and follow up visits.

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.
