Adoption Process & Application

So You Want To Adopt Your New Best Friend?

At Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue, we work hard to make sure our dogs are never in need of rescue again.

The key to our success is the process we use for matching dogs to people and people to dogs. If you and your family are looking to bring a rescued dog into your home, we can help make that process a fun and life changing experience, for both humans and dogs alike.

Rescue Dogs come from a variety of places – from shelters, owner surrenders due to the economy and loss of jobs, owner health issues or even owner death, legal seizures, or commercial breeders. It’s really not important where they come from or why, it matters that they have a second chance at love and a furever family. If you are interested in adopting one (or more) of our dogs, please submit the ADOPTION APPLICATION below. We will contact you when a dog comes available matching your family needs. Our first priority is placing the right dog in the right home.

Our dogs are temporarily housed in pre-screened, loving foster homes while waiting their new forever home. They are also micro-chipped, groomed (if needed), and given a thorough professional veterinary exam to identify any health concerns or potential issues.

Good things are worth waiting for.
Thank you for your interest in helping one of our sweet rescue dogs.
