Springer Spaniel Rescue
The Springer Spaniel rescue network aims to provide new homes for unwanted Springers. They are usually non profit organisations, who will also provide advice and guidance on how to care for the Springer you decide on. They tend to be small groups of volunteers working a specific geographical location.
Spaniels may find themselves being taken in by rescue organizations for a variety of reasons such as: the owners did not realize how active the breed is; there is a new baby in the house and the owners have less time for the Spaniels. Occasionally it may be because there are behavioral problems with the Spaniel. These are just some of the many reasons Springers may be put up for adoption.
Re-homing an unwanted Springer Spaniel is a hugely rewarding task, but may take some time and patience. Some rescue Spaniels may have some "baggage" from their previous lives that you will have to manage when they come in to your home. All of this will be talked through on an individual basis by the Rescue organisation that you use.
However, by working with a rescue organisation, you will have huge amounts of support to help you and your Springer settle in together.
When you first contact them, they will be interested in your home life, what family you have and the time that you are able to devote to a dog. This is to ensure that you are in a position to adopt a Spaniel; after all, they don't want to have to re-home the Spaniel again in a few months time. Be patient with the process it is designed to support both you and your prospective dog settle in together.
I know from personal experience how it is to see a rescued Spaniel rehabilitated in your own home. Growing up, my family had a rescue Spaniel called Mungo who had been very badly treated before he came to us. He was the most loyal, affectionate and dedicated dog I have ever known. It was almost as if he spent every day of his life thanking us for turning his life around. My parents still own this lovely 14 year old Spaniel.
Attached is a list of English Springer Spaniel Rescue sites in North America and Brittany rescue sites in America.
I have also created a page of English Springer Spaniel rescue sites in the UK.
I hope to add more links to a variety of Springer Spaniel rescue organisations on here as the site develops to help you find more information on your local network. If you are aware of other Springer Rescue organisations then please let me know and I will add it to the list.
