Shadow in PA's Story...
Shadow is a dark buff colored young cocker spaniel boy who was taken to a shelter in Baltimore by his former owner. It seems that Shadow did not appreciate the neighbor child jumping on him, so he bit him. During his stay at the Baltimore shelter, the staff found him to be a very nice boy. CSAC saw potential in Shadow and took him for a behavior assessment. The results were great - he was found to be perfectly nice, non-aggressive, but a bit fearful.

Shadow is now looking for a second chance in a home where he will be loved forever. Since he is fearful and seems to scare easily, his new owner will need to be patient with him while he adjusts to his new home. He also cannot go to a home with young children. A calm quiet home would suit him better.

If you think you can offer Shadow a furrever home where he will be cherished and loved, please fill out an application!

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

Shadow 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.
