Cocker Spaniel puppies
Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Inc. (“GCCSR) thanks you for seeking to adopt a rescue animal. Our goal is to place our rescued pets in permanent, loving homes. We understand this application/contract is lengthy, but it has been formulated in hopes if minimizing the risk of a failed adoption Please complete this application/contract so that we at GCCSR can assist you in finding a special, compatible companion to join your family. We do not adopt dogs on a “first come, first served” basis, but rather make every attempt to match families with the most compatible pets.The primary adoption fee for pets is $200.00 for cocker spaniels 6 months of age and older. The fee for puppies under 6 months old is $300.00, and placement is done only on a foster-to-adopt basis until sterilization is completed at one of GCCSR’s veterinarians. After surgery, the adoption will be finalized upon receipt of the $300.00 adoption fee and co-signing of the contract by a GCCSR representative.
GCCSR is a non-profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization. Your adoption fee is tax deductable ( a reciept will be sent to you within the calendar year of the adoption). Because GCCSR is a nonprofit organization, we exist solely on donations, and these fees help GCCSR defray the costs of spaying/neutering, testing, and vaccinating our pets. However, these fees rarely cover all of our expenses. Our pets are heartworm tested and placed on heartworm preventative. As the Adopter, you agree that if the pet is heartworm positive, Heartgard® (or its ivermectin equivalent) is the only preventative that may be administered to kill the heartworms (what GCCSR commonly refers to as “soft heartworm treatment”). Any other type of heartworm preventative or treatment could cause the pet to become seriously ill or even die. A GCCSR representative is happy to answer any questions you might have about such soft treatment. However, should our veterinarians determine that an adulticide injection is a viable option for one of the heartworm positive dogs in our program, said treatment will be administered before the dog will be adopted out.
