The American Kennel Club and the English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association are two organizations that provide contact information for breed-specific rescues to the public. They have links to many rescue associations listed directly on their websites.
One such rescue organization is English Springer Rescue America, a non-profit organization that, according to their website, is devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of Springer Spaniels in need. Rescue associations such as this one commonly list dogs available for adoption, along with their history and other information a prospective dog owner would need to know.
Adopting a dog from a rescue requires a careful vetting process for the potential owner that may include forms to fill out, background checks and a home visit to ensure that the dog is being safely placed. An adoption fee is also usual. Dogs available through a rescue are usually neutered or spayed, and the adoption fee helps to cover that and other care costs.
The dogs are often housed in temporary foster homes while they await adoption. Rescues are sometimes in need of individuals to foster these animals. Donations, fundraisers, volunteer work, and sponsorship of individual dogs are other helpful ways to support a rescue association.
