Columbus Cocker Rescue

Columbus Cocker Rescue is a breed specific rescue focusing primarily on saving the most at risk American Cocker Spaniels. We rescue, rehabilitate, provide medical care, evaluate and search for the right adoptive homes for our cockers to continue to be nurtured and loved after they leave us.

We are a foster home based program, and do not have a central location. All of our adoptable cockers are in private foster homes in and around the Columbus OH area, being treated like any other member of a loving family prior to being adopted. During times of crisis, until a foster home can be found, we may have the cockers in temporary short term boarding, prior to moving to a foster home.

What's New


Ohio has opened back up and adoptions have begun. We are working through the many applications that were in a holding pattern during the Governor's executive order as well as working through the new applications arriving daily. As the threat of this virus still exists, we are implementing the following procedures:

We will limit the number of physical home inspections and may request virtual inspections via pictures, FaceTime or videos.

There may be no public adoption events for the remainder of 2020. These have been the only opportunity to meet our dogs without submitting an application and becoming approved. If they do resume again, there will be safety measures in place that must be followed.

We will conduct private meet and greets only with approved applications and at the place of our choosing. We request that all people at the meet and greet wear a mask for the protection of our volunteers.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding of the "new normal".
