Outside northern California?  Find Springer Rescue near you!
CAN'T FOSTER?  Here's some way to help rescue --

Someone to weekly peruse & report on Craig's List website for Springer ads.

We need someone to brainstorm and follow thru on ideas for rescue fund-raising, such as merchandise to sell, raffle donations, on-line auctions, etc.  
Rescue needs volunteers with talent to produce products for sale, or outgoing individuals to solicit donations for raffles, organize garage sales, etc.  
Rescue ALWAYS needs volunteers to foster dogs in danger (of being put to sleep) anywhere in the SF Bay Area.  Rescue pays for necessary vet care & provides dry dog food.  

To fulfill any above Wish or for more info, contact Diane (510) 482-3199 or 
goldengaterescue (at) sbcglobal (dot) net
Send donations made payable to GGSR, indicate if you wish to earmark it for a certain Springer, and mail to:

Our lifestyle has changed and we cannot provide him with the life he deserves."  


Perform customized search at and for Springers and Springer mixes available thru a variety of rescues and shelters.  

TIP: With Petfinder, widen search parameter to other "similar" breeds as many purebreds are incorrectly ID'ed at shelters. We've even seen some listed as "Cockers," "Border Collies" or "Welch Springer Spaniels." If you register with their site, they allow you to save your searches for each time you visit.

With Petharbor, in creating the search, check the option for "show similar breeds." They also allow you to "register" your breed interest to have emails sent when new dogs come in.  


A tip for puppy buyers:  There is now a brand new DNA blood test for PRA. Buy ONLY from trusted breeders who run this test on both sire & dam & share the results with you. This is additional to certification from OFA and CERF. Anyone can reference these tests (OFA & CERF) with even a partial registered dog's name. Rescue can provide names of reputable breeders who follow ethical guidelines; email Diane at goldengaterescue(at) You can also contact ESSFTA for their list of breeders' names.  
Please note: We do not recommend the newspaper, internet etc. It is best to get a referral to a reputable breeder. Yes, it does cost more but what you are paying for is peace of mind and lifetime help. All pre-testing will have been done & you will find a healthier pet this way. That breeder will stand behind that puppy for life, and should take back the dog at any point in its life, if needed, no excuses.

ADULT MALE, 12-year-old male in foster care. Details to follow. Details are (Warning: Sad ending) the dog was most likely brought to animal control with life-ending health conditions & dropping your dog off at the city shelter is cheaper than paying a vet to euthanize (have you priced euthanasia lately?? don't get me started about vet $$......!!). Some health conditions can be cured with a little money, but this wasn't so with this boy. We can thank God he did have a very happy last week of life surrounded by loving people who cared enough to take an unfamiliar old dog in & he didn't die alone, in the shelter.
