Our mission is to rescue Cocker Spaniels while partnering with animal control and shelters to rehabilitate those who have been neglected or abused, to assist owners with medical care or surrendering as an alternative to placing their dogs in a shelter, and to promote the importance of sterilizing all pets.
Due to covid-19, we also rescue all breeds under 30 pounds, but will never turn a cocker away for any reason whatsoever.
We carefully screen all potential adopters to ensure our rescued dogs go to a safe home. The adoption process starts with submitting an adoption application, followed by a phone interview, checking personal references and a home safety check. After an applicant is approved, we work with the applicant to suggest a dog that meets their preferences, based on personalities and lifestyle for a made-to-last relationship. RMCR is a 501(c)(3) charitable, non-profit organization.
All of our rescued cockers and cocker-mixes live in foster homes; we do not place our dogs available for adoption into a kennel or shelter environment. We have foster homes all along I-25 from Albuquerque, NM north to Cheyenne, WY, in addition to Grand Junction, CO and a few more in Kansas and Missouri. We current accept dogs that look like a cocker spaniel or cockapoo from any neighboring state which shares a border with Colorado along with our rescue partners in Kansas and Missouri.
