Welsh Springer Spaniel Rescue and Re-Homing

Welsh Springer Spaniel Rescue
Registered Charity No. 1182911

Sadly, there are occasions when Welsh Springers have to be re-homed. To assist in these circumstances and to help safeguard the welfare of the dogs concerned the Welsh Springer Rescue and Re-homing Scheme (WSSR) was formed.

The dog that typically comes through the Scheme is about 6-7 years old which makes the task of finding suitable homes that bit more difficult. They also get some real veterans but thanks to the kindness of the Rescue Co-ordinators and Foster Carers they try to always manage to find them somewhere to enjoy their ‘twilight years’

WSSR is a totally independent organisation set up by a group of Welsh Springer Spaniel enthusiasts all over the country to assist in the rescue and re-homing of Welsh Springers. As such the Welsh Springer Spaniel Club has no direct involvement in the running of the scheme.

The Welsh Springer Spaniel Club does however support the WSSR by way of fundraising through Fun days and other events, last year saw a donation from calendar sales of over £200 being made towards their work. The WSSC also provide space in the WSSC Yearbook to publicise the WSSR Annual Report and Accounts along with a list of their current representatives. The efforts of the WSSR and their contact details are also promoted through this website.
