MEET PRINCESS & PENNY!
Family is breaking up... and these two sweet girls need a new home. Please contact us ASAP if you are interested in adopting, or fostering these beautiful girls. Time is of the essence, as their owners are about to dump them!! NO -- YOU'RE RIGHT! These are NOT cocker spaniels, but a friend has asked for our help in re-homing Princess (8 yr old, chocolate lab) and Penny (5 yr old black lab). They are a mother and daughter team who need a new home TOGETHER. They are both spayed and up to date on their shots. They are both overweight due to a lack of exercise... both are very eager to please. Both have also been outside in a kennel their whole lives... would like to find a good home where they could be inside and out with their new family..... They DESERVE IT!! This is a list of MUST HAVES: Secured Fenced yard, Lots of exercise, Indoor/outdoor. You can see more photos of Princess and Penny on our "Adoptable Cockers" page.
Our beloved Scrutly has crossed The Rainbow Bridge. Scrutly was the inspiration that created American Cocker Spaniel Rescue. Not only did he inspire its creation, but he was the one who directed the foster dogs. Scrutly was small in stature, but mighty in authority, direction and wisdom. He taught the scared foster cockers to be brave, the naughty ones to be nice, and kept harmony among the pack. Everyone obeyed Scrutly. Because of Scrutly, hundreds of homeless cocker spaniels have found new, loving homes. He is missed much, and always will be. You can read about Scrutly's life on his memorial website: http://scrutly.pets-memories.com/index.php, where you can also light a candle for him, or leave a story/memory you might have about him -- be sure to come back to his website often, as we will be adding many more photos and memories about Scrutly. To those of you who have made a donation to ACSR in Scrutly's honor, we thank you very much! We've been asked to post info on where donations can be sent: For those who would like to make a donation in his name, checks can be made out to ACSR, and mailed to: American Cocker Spaniel Rescue, 17719 Pacific Avenue South, PMB#353, Spanaway, WA 98387

Seattle based pianist and vocalist Marilyn Milano blends her love of music with her compassion for animals through her songs. A little bit Carly Simon, a little bit Carole King, a hint of Joe Cocker, and a whole lotta herself, Marilyn’s voice and songs touch your emotions and move you to want to “make a difference”. Two of her greatest passions are music, and helping animals.
“Love Has Many Faces” takes the listener on a journey…from the perspective of the animal in the shelter, on to the joy of finding a new family member, the sorrow of losing a beloved pet, and the re-dedication to the cause of rescue until there’s a home for every companion animal. Marilyn Milano's passion for her cause and well-crafted songs will educate, inform and entertain, with the greater goal of helping out companion animals and those who love them. 25% of each sale is being donated to animal charities.
Marilyn's music CD, “Love Has Many Faces” has not been studio-recorded, yet. She is currently raising funds to produce the CD, and hopes to have it out by next springtime. You can help Marilyn raise those funds by purchasing her newly released piano CD: “Musings, A Collection of Reflective Solo Piano Works Improvised As They Are Being Recorded”. Help Marilyn help the animals, and enjoy beautiful music for yourself, or give as a gift, at the same time!

Cocker spaniels live for protectiveness and loyalty. Loved ones depend on us to take care of them. Our employers depend on us to be loyal employees. The time is always right to be a cocker spaniel.
Our cockers have a special charm, that can brighten our darkest day... like a ray of sunshine on a little flower, when the world has gone astray. ~~ Peggy Bang
"For every animal that dies in a shelter, there is someone, somewhere, responsible for its death. You cannot do a kindness too soon, because you never know how soon it will be too late." ~ ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Before you consider adopting a pet, remember: IT'S A LIFETIME COMMITMENT! Meaning: You give it the very best care possible and love it for it's ENTIRE life. You DO NOT give it up because: you're moving, you have children, your new boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't like it, it gets old or sick, etc. You wouldn't throw out a human kid for these reasons, so don't throw out a pet for these reasons!!
