IF YOUR SPRINGER NEEDS HELP...
We realize that sometimes life throws us curve balls and sometimes a family is faced with the dilemma of parting with their Springer. In some circumstances, we can offer to take a Springer into our foster program* though spaces are not always available. To be considered for entry into SRECC's foster care program, a dog must be spayed or neutered and up-to-date with vaccinations. If your springer does not meet our criteria you should be prepared to financially support these expenses as our resources are limited. We can always offer support and suggestions to the surrendering family to help re-home the Springer without necessarily taking it into rescue.
Surrendering your Springer to rescue should always be the last resort and never taken for granted. SRECC believes in education and that rehabilitation by way of training can often solve some of the problems that may lead a family down the path of surrender. Please take the time to consult your vet when medical problems arise and if necessary, find a qualified trainer that can help you sort out any behavior issues you are having with your Springer before you give up on your dog. Your Springer is worth every ounce of your love, compassion and dedication and will return your efforts ten fold.
You should be prepared to continue caring for your Springer or have a friend or family member be willing to foster him or her while we work to find solutions for your family. Our volunteers are doing their very best to find loving homes for the Springers as quickly as they can. Please never threaten our volunteers by saying that you will have your dog put to sleep if we don't remove it immediately.
*Owner Surrender Fees will apply and legal documentation is signed that releases the Springer to SRECC thus giving up all of your rights, claims and privileges to the Springer forever.
