CSRET is a non-profit organization. We are a network of volunteers that provide foster homes, love, shelter, transportation, grooming and food. Funds are primarily used not only for veterinary care and medication but also for boarding for dogs who are safely waiting for foster homes. This is often necessary because we know that leaving a CockerKid® behind in a shelter while waiting for a foster home to open up doesn't guarantee

their safety. 

Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas is classified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, so your contribution

may be tax deductible.




It is with great sorrow that we announce that longtime volunteer Cathy Rankin Tiemann has passed away. She leaves behind husband James, whose stalwart strength helped Cathy calm and sooth hundreds of new CockerKids, as well as their daughter Sarah and son’s Scotty & Jamie.

Cathy was our No.1 when it came to interviewing potential adopters and fosters, and making sure that incoming dogs found their perfect home.

Our hearts are broken but Cathy lives on in our thoughts and prayers, and in our resolve to continue this important ministry in her memory.



Many religions and cultures have a Festival of Lights - the Hindus (Diwali), Jews (Hanukkah), and Christians (Christmas) to name a few.

The dogs we adopt out celebrate holidays and traditions with their new families.

Our dogs have experienced the Christmas traditions of countries such as Sweden, Canada, Great Britain, Scotland, France, Spain and Czechoslovakia. Americans, depending on their heritage and family traditions, celebrate Christmas differently but love lighting up their homes and Christmas trees. Texans often have tamales along with turkey and all the trimmings. We've introduced dogs from Mexico, Puerto Rico, the United Arab Emirates, Louisiana and Arkansas to a Texan Christmas.

Bring a smile to the face of everybody you meet when wearing one of the tees or sweatshirts.


It's also a great ice breaker and will get folks talking about CSRET and the cocker spaniels that we care for on a daily basis. Shirts come in all sorts of styles and colors, including Mardi Gras and Christmas special editions.
