It's time again for the
Houston World Series
of Dog Shows

2017 SHOW DATES - JULY 19-23

Visit one of the finest indoor dog shows in America held in Houston's NRG Park. Along with breed judging and obedience, you'll discover agility dogs racing over obstacle courses, flyball teams hurdling to beat the clock, and four-footed athletes catching Frisbees and dancing to music. You can buy dog goodies galore at the McScotty Market and get to know some of the fantastic CockerKids from the Cocker Inn. Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas will be in Booth 730.

In addition to meeting our available CockerKids, and the great volunteers who rescued them, Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas will be continuing the tradition of holding a fund raising raffle. Proceeds from the raffle help support our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome cocker spaniels. We're particularly proud of this year's raffle because we've got some great prizes. Click on the image on the right to call up the raffle flyer in pdf format. Tickets are $5 each or if you're looking for a bargain, 5 chances can be yours for $20. The drawing will be held near the end of the show at 2:30 pm on Sunday July 23. You don't have to be present to win. You don't even have to be present to enter (although we do hope you'll come by dog show and see us). You can arrange to purchase tickets by sending an email to kpoe2@comcast.net.

Come see us at Booth 730!


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 cockerkids10@cockerkids.org or call the hot line at 713-208-1314.



ADOPTION LOCATIONS

There was a time when 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.

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.

 

Cocker Spaniel Rescue does not operate a shelter and has no paid staff. We are a network of foster homes which provide love, shelter, transportation, grooming and food. Funds collected by CSR are used primarily for veterinary care, medication, and boarding. Cocker Spaniel Rescue is classified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, so your contribution may be tax deductible.
