The first step in applying to adopt a CAESSR Spaniel is to contact us and tell us who you are and a little bit about yourself. In order to find the right Spaniel for you we need to know about:
- your past dog experience
- your family
- any current pets
- what you could offer a rescued Spaniel.
A CAESSR representative will need to talk to you on the telephone to discuss your application. At this stage you will be asked certain questions regarding your domestic situation so that successful applicants can adopt a Spaniel of the correct age, size, gender and temperament. CAESSR will not place Spaniels with families that have young children (under the age of 8), because there may be a risk of a painful misunderstanding, due to the natural boisterousness of the breed.
Following a successful first interview all prospective homes will be personally vetted by a CAESSR representative who will further advise you on proceeding with an adoption. This is to protect the members of your household and any Spaniel you welcome into your home. All of your queries will be answered and advice is on hand for any who request it.
A satisfactory outcome will result in a recommendation and in you viewing one or more suitable Spaniels in our care (not always right away). This may entail travelling some distance but, as you will no doubt agree, your choice will be more sensibly made if you can actually meet your prospective special friend and spend a little time getting to know him. It is important that liking is mutual so please do not feel obliged to take any Spaniel unless you are 100% comfortable with your choice.
Please remember that there will be a period of adjustment and it may take a little while for a dog to accept a new family and strange surroundings before he can feel comfortable with his new life. With a little time and patience a Spaniel will happily settle down to your routine.
Many of the dogs that come to us require veterinary treatment. A donation from an adoptive owner will help CAESSR offset the cost of medication and keep so that we can continue to rescue other unfortunate Spaniels.
Contact us now because that special friend might just be waiting for you!
