Hi Everyone! My name is Starburst, and I just arrived at CSAC from a shelter. I was found abandoned in a filthy crate that was much too small for me. I felt like a caged rat and was scared for my life. I thought I was going to die. I am trying very hard to trust humans again, but it is taking me time. When I do not feel safe, I will growl. I also will not look at you if I don't like you. Some really caring people have been working with me by giving me lots of great treats and letting me approach them for attention. I really am trying to trust again. Right now, I am in the caring hands of one of the great Vets that work with the CSAC. They are checking me out and making sure I am healthy. I need someone who can be patient with me, give me space and time to trust, and be willing to give me great treats.

The medical and custodial care of the many Cockers in our care is tremendous. More and more dogs are abandoned with urgent and serious medical issues. We are committed to providing the best possible care for these forgotten friends. Unfortunately, the mounting high costs are beginning to limit the number of dogs we are able to take into our program. Even if you cannot adopt or foster one of our current adoptable dogs, please consider making a donation. The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, and your donations are entirely tax deductible. Click the Donate menu at the top of the screen.
