Whitney in PA's Story...
Hi, everybody! My name is Whitney and I’m a beautiful, sweet, shy 7 year old white and buff Cocker Spaniel girl. The pictures you see here are some of me before I was groomed, and some of me after I was groomed. Aren’t I the prettiest little thing?? You’ll also see a picture of one of my toenails. It was actually a complete circle, but when the vet cut it off, she had to take a little at a time. Luckily, it hadn’t gotten into my soft tissue - imagine how much THAT would have hurt! I was rescued from a puppy mill and we all know how awful those places are! CSAC has gotten me spayed, UTD on all my shots and I even had a dental (8 teeth pulled!!). I have been placed in a loving foster home, but as much as I love my foster mommy, I’d sure love to find my furever home!

My foster mom sent this for my bio: Whitney is all curled up on a blanket as I type, taking a snooze. I fed her in the crate and she got her meds. She readily goes thru the doggy door and if I hold the door open for her, she will think about it and then come in. She is a little shy with my son and me, but she lets us pet her and she wiggles her little butt a mile a minute! Since she is a puppy mill girl, she will need some potty training, but she is already doing better with it than can be expected. She will eat poop though - also typical of a pm dog - so watch out! I know that her ears were infected, but I have plenty of ear cleaner and ear medications, so I will continue with her ear cleaning.

The vet recommended limited ingredient or no gluten dog food since I do have mild allergies, but the volunteers with CSAC are sure I will be in tip top shape in no time with the proper care and love! I don’t like steps, but with your patience and encouragement, I will eventually do them. I even went up and down a couple of really big curbs while headed to the groomer last week!
Don’t forget - as a puppy mill dog, I lived my entire life in a wire cage; 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Being in a cage doesn’t do much for a dog’s socialization, so I am kind of timid. But with love and your patience, I can blossom into a wonderful pet. I just know there is someone out there looking for a gal like me to love. Thanks!

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

Whitney 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.
