SPECIAL NOTICE - Updated 6/12/20

Ohio has opened back up and adoptions have begun. We are working through the many applications that were in a holding pattern during the Governor's executive order as well as working through the new applications arriving daily. As the threat of this virus still exists, we are implementing the following procedures:

We will limit the number of physical home inspections and may request virtual inspections via pictures, FaceTime or videos.

There may be no public adoption events for the remainder of 2020. These have been the only opportunity to meet our dogs without submitting an application and becoming approved. If they do resume again, there will be safety measures in place that must be followed.

We will conduct private meet & greets only with approved applications and at the place of our choosing. We request that all people at the meet and greet wear a mask for the protection of our volunteers.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding of the 'new normal'.

Cockers have been placed to date in Loving Permanent Homes through Columbus Cocker Rescue!

By signing my name below I certify that all information contained in this application is true and accurate. I understand that my references will be contacted and give permission for my vet to release any information requested by Columbus Cocker Rescue.

I understand accept that the adoption decision depends upon many factors, including – but not limited to the compatibility of the family and home to the individual cocker and other applications received on the dog. I understand and accept that is Columbus Cockers’ prerogative to decide which home is more appropriate for the individual cocker, and therefore, I will not take issue with the decision.
