A number of regional agencies across the United States offer springer spaniel puppy and dog adoption, including the Mid Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue, English Springer Rescue America, Inc. Region of the Southeast, the English Springer Rescue America, Inc. Upper Midwest Chapter and the national organization English Springer Rescue America, Inc. Such organizations seek individuals and families to adopt or foster springer spaniel dogs of all ages, from puppies through to advanced-age adults.
In order to adopt an English springer spaniel puppy from any of these agencies, it is necessary to fill out an application, which requests information about the person adopting a puppy and his household and lifestyle. Some adoption processes may also require a telephone interview, a veterinary or other reference check and a home visit. Many adoptable springer spaniel puppies come from backyard breeders and puppy mills, and in an effort to prevent further euthanasia of healthy springers the agencies spay or neuter all dogs prior to adoption.
The springer spaniel puppies up for adoption through these agencies reside with their current owners, in boarding facilities or in foster homes across the indicated region. Adoption fees may apply, which go to funding the rescue and care of other springer spaniel dogs.
