Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas has NO BACKGROUND INFORMATION on the animal's previous environment, behavioral problems, including biting (if any) and medical history. We cannot guarantee the dog's health although we attempt to alert the adopter to any known health issues. In most cases the age of the dog is estimated but your veterinarian may age it differently. Our veterinarians may not have identified every physical problem the dog has. Some diseases or conditions have long incubation periods. A negative test is not a guarantee the animal does not have a certain disease.
Introduction of a new animal into a home carries certain risks that must be assumed solely by the adopting party. Cocker Spaniel Rescue is not liable for damages that may result from such an introduction.

Protect your dog from heartworms year around by using monthly heartworm preventative,

When you adopt an animal from CSR-ET, the dog will have a collar and ID tag. The tag is registered to this organization. You are strongly urged to have your own ID tag made immediately. If the dog is running loose, picked up by Animal Control or a Good Samaritan, and CSR-ET is contacted, we reserve the right to refuse to return the dog to you.
Your signature on the adoption application certifies that all the information is accurate and truthful. If we discover the information on the application is false or misleading, we reserve the right to confiscate the dog.
Cocker Spaniel Rescue is an organization operating as a community service with the intent to do only good and no harm.
ANY DOG ADOPTED MUST BE TAKEN TO YOUR VETERINARIAN WITHIN THREE WEEKS TO GET HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVE.
YOUR SIGNATURE(S) IS YOUR PROMISE TO PROVIDE THE MEDICAL, EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL NEEDS OF YOUR PET FOR THE REST OF ITS NATURAL LIFE. IF, AT ANY TIME YOU CAN NO LONGER KEEP YOUR COCKER, THE DOG IS TO BE RETURNED TO COCKER SPANIEL RESCUE.
