Penny in SC's Info...

Penny in SC's Story...
Everyone, meet Penny, a 6 year old red and white Cocker Spaniel girl. Penny was surrendered to CSAC by her former owner’s son. Both of Penny’s owners died within a year of each other, so on top of grieving for them, she has lost her home to boot. CSAC is trying to find this little gal a new family where she will be safe, cared for, and loved forever!

Upon surrender, Penny was immediately seen by a vet for a UTI and an exam. She has also been groomed. She is a bit underweight, which her foster mother is addressing, but otherwise healthy. Penny is very friendly with other dogs. She was exposed to an alpha female cattle dog during her overnight at the transporter’s home. This dog was very bossy with Penny, but Penny refused to engage in a fight, and chose to ignore her. Penny now lives with other Cockers and mini-schnauzers and is a happy girl! Her behavior with cats is unknown.

Penny rides very well in the car and loves her fenced in yard. She is spayed, up-to-date on all her shots and HW negative. I believe her birthday is June 2006. She is a sweet girl, very well-mannered and a typical Velcro cocker. She would do well in a moderately active home. She walks well, pulls some, on a leash. I don’t believe she has had much exposure, if any, to children. But of course, that doesn’t mean I would rule out a family with kids. If you have room in your home and heart for this special lady, please submit an Adoption Application as soon as possible so you can begin your new lives together!

The medical and custodial expenses of the numerous Cocker Spaniels in our care are tremendous. With the current economy, more and more dogs with urgent and serious medical issues are being abandoned. While we are committed to providing the best possible care for these luckless, voiceless dogs, the increased costs are beginning to take their toll on our ability to do so. What this means is that we are able to rescue fewer dogs, and in turn that means more dogs may be euthanized every day. Even if you cannot adopt or foster one of our dogs, please consider making a donation. We know that money is tight everywhere, but even just a few dollars from many people adds up. Think of those dogs still in shelters or on the streets – those without warm beds, full bellies, and the knowledge that they are safe. For just the cost of a few cups of coffee, you can make a tremendous in the life of one of our needy furballs. For other ways to donate, please scroll to the bottom of our main web page. The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization and your donations are entirely tax deductible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penny in SC, a Westminster Cocker Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cocker Spaniel for sale in Westminster, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Westminster.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Westminster already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Westminster breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cocker Spaniel breeders who help with Cocker Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Westminster paves the way for another one to be saved.
