Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue, Inc. was founded in Colorado out of our love and passion for Cocker Spaniels. We believe that a group of dedicated volunteers can make a significant and lasting difference in the lives of unwanted, abandoned, abused or neglected Cocker Spaniels in Colorado and the entire Rocky Mountain Region. RMCR is part of an extensive network of Cocker Spaniel lovers headquartered in metro Denver, but spread across Colorado and neighboring states, who band together for the love of the breed. Our mission is to rescue, foster, train and rehabilitate unwanted Cocker Spaniels that have been mistreated, abused, neglected or abandoned and to place them in permanent, loving homes.
Our directors and volunteers rescue Cocker Spaniels in need from shelters in Colorado and neighboring states where they face euthanasia or owners who cannot care for their pets anymore, as well as from neglect or abandonment situations. Rescued dogs are placed in foster care at the home of prescreened volunteers until a suitable forever home can be found for them. Often foster care volunteers work with the dogs to train or socialize them so they are more adoptable. Before the dogs are made available for adoption they are spayed or neutered and seen by a veterinarian for a health exam to identify and treat any health care issues, and any necessary vaccinations are administered. Our dogs also undergo a behavior evaluation that helps us determine what type of permanent home environment would allow them to thrive and succeed.
RMCR volunteers donate their time and services to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Cocker Spaniels in need. If you are interested and have the time, please visit our Volunteer page to learn about the many ways that you can help.
Although RMCR is an organization founded to help animals in need, it also affects human lives in many different ways. For more information, visit our Human Health and Welfare page.
You can see our current Cocker Spaniels on our Adoptable Dogs page. Then if you would like to consider adopting and offering one of these adorable, loyal companions a forever home please visit our Adoption Information page to learn about our process and submit an online adoption application.
