JJ in PA's Story...
JJ was dropped off at the ACCT over a year ago by previous owners. The reason for signing JJ over to the rescue by the previous owners isn’t entirely known. Apparently after having him for so many years they just did not want him anymore. JJ was in terrible condition when he arrived at the shelter. He was completely covered in mats and he had infections in his eyes, ears, and all over his skin under the mats. The shelter surrendered him to us saying they really didn’t want to euthanize him due to his happy go lucky personality, despite his horrible condition. Even with all that JJ went through, his little nubby tail constantly wags. JJ has been since been placed in foster care.

JJ is a very happy and curious little guy! He is a senior who has a bounce to his step. He enjoys short walks and long periods of cuddle time! He can be a couch potato and an adventure seeker all in one! JJ does well with almost anything and everyone (this even includes cats!)! JJ however would do best in a home with older children (7 or older) and calm dogs. JJ gets stressed when he is around dogs that are too hyper or in your face. He would also do best in a home that provides him with a consistent routine and schedule, it comforts him and he sticks to it very well! He is a dog who will require occasional grooming but he behaves very well for grooming (doesn’t really like his feet touched though).

JJ had an enucleation of his left eye due to severe Glaucoma in early 2012. He is currently being treated for dry eye in his right eye daily. He is up to date on all vaccines and is otherwise healthy and happy.

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

JJ in PA, 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.
