The Nick & Nathan Show

Nick: "Can't believe I met you only a few days ago. We have such chemistry!"

Nathan: "Don't we though? The running, the roughhousing, the gnawing on each other - makes for a really good time. But down to business. We have to get some CockerKids adopted."

Nick: "Speak for yourself buddy. I have someone interested in me. But I will share the details of my life. About a week ago I found myself in a homeless shelter! That is no place for a year old pup. Still don't understand why my owners never came to look for me. I was wearing a collar and neckerchief but no identifying information. I would describe myself as a fudgy chocolate color - very debonair if I do say. Loved my groom and bath. I'm a friendly fellow."

Nathan: "Hey, old man, don't be such a cocky cocker spaniel. I've got a couple looking at me, too. I am about six months of age and full of energy. I am a chocolate and white parti meaning my coat is partially white and partially chocolate. People just swoon at my amber eyes. I too was a stray in an animal shelter. No one was looking for me either. I can't understand why since I am smart - that doggy door did not baffle me long! My other notable attribute is my natural tail. But enough about us. How do people go about adopting the other CockerKids? We are all so cute there will be a lot of competition."

Nick: "Even though we make a great morning team, you do realize that if our respective adoptions come through, management will split us up. The Cocker Inn has an occasional bonded pair they like to place together, but in our case, people are free to adopt just one of us."

Nathan: "Yes, I know. I'm fine with that. So, if anyone is interested in adopting, please submit an application. Go to the web site and click on Adoption Info in the navigation bar for the link to the application. Be sure to check the box indicating you have read the contract."

Nick: "Oh, and do actually read the contract."

Nathan: "Right. Fill in all the blanks - be honest, now- and click the submit button."

Nick: "A dog will "lick" the screen if your submission gets through successfully."

Nathan: "After it is received and reviewed you will be contacted by a human in management."

Nick: "Applicants should keep in mind that although applications are reviewed in the order received, management is looking for the best match for us. So please don't be disappointed if you don't get adopt one of us."

Nathan: "Nick and Nathan signing off, but one joke before we go. Why would it be great to own a chocolate and white cocker spaniel? Drum roll please. They like to parti!"

Thank you for supporting Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas in our mission to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home cocker spaniels.

Fostering is the heart of rescue.

Here at the Cocker Inn® our hearts are big. We want to unconditionally accept dogs into our program. When we know we have a foster spot it makes that decision easier. Fostering makes rescue possible. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we save.

A foster home is a place where a dog can chill out, be evaluated, and rehabilitate whether it is a physical or behavioral problem. CSRET provides the vet care and heartworm preventative.

Many people tell us, "Oh, I could never foster because I would fall in love and want to keep them all." Sure, we have all had "foster failures" but doing rescue becomes addictive. Being part of the mission to save dogs' lives and seeing the joy a dog brings an adopter is a real high. How can you look at the sad eyes of a cocker spaniel on death row and not be moved to foster it short term to save its life?

Please open your heart to fostering - between the shelter and a forever home is a special place called a foster home - your home. E-mail or call the hot line at 713-208-1314.


For the last seven years or so the dedicated volunteers of Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas have held adoptions almost every week because we had so many dogs. Contrast that with the early 2000's when we held adoptions once a month at a single PetSmart location. Because of the volume of dogs with which we were dealing, we eventually started having at least one and sometimes two adoptions every week-end.

Currently our headcount is down substantially. In August of 2009 we had 91 available dogs and 26 Forever Fosters whereas currently we have about 25 available dogs (not all of them are ready to go) and 25 Forever Fosters. Consequently the Board has decided to suspend PetSmart adoptions for the present. We have numerous fall festivals where we will show dogs. Additionally, private showings will be utilized. Note that the week of September 4, without holding a formal adoption, we had 8 dogs adopted.

We are still getting in great dogs who need homes. Just submit an application so you are pre-approved and have first shot at any new incoming dogs. We will set up private showings for you. And, remember, we will be at several fall festivals in the area and we will continue to hold an occasional adoption event. Just watch the website.

Our next Adoption Event will be
Saturday October 1, 2016

W. Spring Lowe's Home Improvement Store
FM 2920 and Kuykendahl
2 pm to 4 pm

20902 Kuykendahl Rd

Phone: (281) 907-7700

Why a Lowe's? Adopting a CockerKid® qualifies as a home improvement!

To expedite the adoption process, we urge you to send in the online application for prior approval. We will review the application and resolve any questions before adoption day so you can take your dog home that day. It also gives us a chance to work with you ahead of time in selecting your new dog. Visit the Adoption Info page and and click on the OnLine Adoption Form. Be sure to check the box indicating you have read the contract. If the dog "licks" the screen you have successfully submitted. You will be contacted after it is received and reviewed.
