05/22/2018 - UPDATE -

Dear Friends - Elmer here. I want to tell you all about my new life. Things have been going so well for me since CSAC rescued me when I was at a shelter. I was a stray boy wandering around and being lonely. Luckily, my new life is really happy. See, I have the best foster mom and two pup siblings. I even live with a cat I like. Mom says I love EVERYONE, people and animals. When we go for walks, which I love, I am excited to meet everyone. And I don't even bark at other pups. I am a real gentleman.

I am an older guy so I have some of those pesky things that come with age. My vision is not the best, but I certainly get around just fine. I see my food and treats and my favorite squeaky toys. All important things! I need to take some medications but I am great with that. Mom says I am the sweetest boy ever. She and I love to sit together on the sofa. I always like to be near her. We really love each other a bunch.

I know I will LOVE my new family when they find me. I am a real gem of a boy. Please let CSAC know you want to meet Elmer. Thanks so much. Hugs and kisses - Elmer


Hi Everyone! My name is Elmer, and I just arrived at the CSAC from a shelter. Right now, I am in the caring hands of one of the great Vets that work with the CSAC. They are checking me out and making sure I am healthy. I do have a few issues, my eyes require eye drops and I have very little vision. I need to have cherry eye surgery but I have to see an cardiologist for my heart murmur before I can have surgery. Everyone says I am very sweet. Hopefully, I will find my new family that will turn me into a happy, cherished pet.

Our adoption process starts with an application. If you are interested in adopting this pup, please click the Adopt menu at the top of the screen, read about our process, and click the application link.

The medical and custodial care of the many Cockers in our care is tremendous. More and more dogs are abandoned with urgent and serious medical issues. We are committed to providing the best possible care for these forgotten friends. Unfortunately, the mounting high costs are beginning to limit the number of dogs we are able to take into our program. Even if you cannot adopt or foster one of our current adoptable dogs, please consider making a donation. The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, and your donations are entirely tax deductible. If you can help, please donate.

About Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center Inc., unlike many other rescue organizations, opens our hearts and our homes to Cocker Spaniels (and "honorary" Cocker Spaniels) regardless of age or medical conditions. When you see the love shining back from a senior dog who has been rescued, or received little kisses from a dog so ill he/she can hardly raise their head, then you will know as we do, all dogs deserve to be rescued, healed, and loved. This has proven true for us over the many years we have been rescuing abused, neglected, and "thrown away" Cocker Spaniels. Because of our beliefs, our work is never done but our hearts are always full. We are an all-volunteer organization, so all donations and Adoption Fees go directly to helping keep these rescued Cocker Spaniels' tails wagging.
