SPECIAL NOTICE - Updated 6/12/20

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 & 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'.

1542 Cockers have been placed to date in Loving Permanent Homes through Columbus Cocker Rescue!

Our Mission, Not a Business….

Become a Foster

We have many opportunities to foster, including short term, temporary and permanent foster care.

Temporary foster care: provides care for a dog until his/her adoption. The amount of time in rescue is dependent upon a number of factors, including the age of the dog.

Permanent foster care: provides a loving home for an unadoptable dog who will remain in foster care until his/her death. Cockers will generally be placed into permanent foster status if they are seniors who have medical issues such as heart disease, Cushing's and blindness who are deemed to not be adoptable.

To begin the process of becoming an approved foster parent, you must complete and submit an application. Additionally, you must agree to a home visit by a Columbus Cocker Rescue representative. All decisions made by Columbus Cocker Rescue are final regarding the acceptance or rejection of an application for fostering a Columbus Cocker Rescue dog.

As a foster of Columbus Cocker Rescue, you are willing to assume responsibility for the dog’s welfare and assume financial responsibility for providing food and water for the dog, as well as providing the other basics that all dogs need. All medical costs are covered by the rescue, including medication and procedures. All vetting MUST be completed at our hospital in Gahanna, Ohio. Adoption events are held every month and dogs in temporary foster care are expected to attend those events.

To begin the process, please complete the adoption/foster application and complete. Enter 'foster' for the question 'What Cocker are you interested in Adopting?'.

Thank you for your interest in fostering for Columbus Cocker Rescue.
