Skippy in PA's Story...
4/6/13 - Update from Skippy’s Foster Mom:

Skippy has been delightful and is learning alot from us and our two other cockers. He is full of energy, but calming down each and every day. He loves walks, is definately a lap dog, and seems to really love people. Lots and lots of dog kisses! Right now he is taking some medications for his eyes, but is coming along fine. He will have a followup vet visit soon. He pretty much has rule of the house, but he is also crate trained. He is on the small side weighing only 20 pounds. He has been trimmed since his last photo on the website.

Everyone, please meet Skippy, an adorable dark buff colored cocker spaniel boy. Skippy just completed a trip from Ohio to CSAC with two other cocker spaniel travelers. While we don’t yet know much about him, Skippy’s transporter says he traveled well in the car, LIKES people, attention and of course treats!

This little boy wants nothing more than to adopt a special someone of his own that he can lavish affection upon. His transporter describes him as friendly, energetic, happy, curious, trusting, outgoing, cuddly, and gives GREAT kisses! What more can you ask for ?

If you think Skippy would be willing to adopt you, please complete an application as soon as possible to that you can be 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

Skippy 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.
