Adoption Applications

Adoption Process


Please check you meet our criteria before filling out the form , those that don’t will no be considered. ie if profile states no other pets then we are not looking for a home with other pets.

• Live in South East Queensland ( we like to do home inspections and be available to come and help during the settling in period.

• Have a secure yard

• The dog will be welcome in the house and on the lounge and will sleep inside.

• You can afford the adoption fee.

• You have read our adoption process below.



Step 1) After applications are submitted, the best matched application/s for each individual dog are selected (based on each dog’s personality, needs, age, exercise regime etc).
Step 2) ‘Meet and Greets’ are arranged in a local dog park (neutral territory is important so that the foster dog and potential new playmate both feel at ease)
Step 3) Of all the ‘Meet and Greets’, the best matched family/s are selected for a house and yard inspection.
Step 4) If both parties (adopter and Cocker Spaniel Rescue Qld Inc) are in agreement, the foster dog may go on a 4 week home trial (subject to adoption fee paid and contract signed)
Step 5) Hopefully dog and master fall in love, and CSRQ completes all final paperwork for the family!

Please note: Please understand that CSRQ members are volunteers, doing this out of the kindness of their hearts, they all have full-time jobs, families and their own cockers to look after. Please understand if it sometimes takes a little longer for you to meet your bundle of joy or return phone calls.
