There are several charities across the United States that rescue cocker spaniels, but they take in all dogs of the breed, not just puppies. One such charity is Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue of Queens, New York.
Some of the other cocker spaniel rescue charities located in the United States are Second Chance Cocker Rescue of California, and Charlotte Cocker Rescue of North Carolina. Dogs that wind up in rescues are frequently older, as puppies are fragile and may not survive the ill treatment that rescued dogs have been subjected to. In fact, some rescues encourage potential owners to take in senior dogs, as older dogs are more prone to being abandoned permanently and spending the rest of their lives in shelters.
