Cocker Adoption Application Form

Please provide answers to all questions, failure to do so may result in your application being rejected.


All applications will be acknowledged via text & email, please ensure that you check your Spam/Junk folder




If you do not have children living at your premises, but do have children that visit you (i.e. grandchildren, nieces/nephews, friends), could you please advise their ages.


Please select:
Do you rent or own your property? If renting the property, please supply the contact details for your Property Manager/Landlord (this includes their name, the name of the Real Estate Agency (if applicable), an email address and a mobile telephone number/landline telephone number). It is not sufficient to say you have permission, we must make contact with them to ensure that you do have permission and that it is noted on your lease/tenancy agreement.


Where possible we conduct home checks for the purpose of ensuring that the environment is secure, safe and suitable for a Cocker Spaniel to be kept in. If during the process of checking a potential adopter’s home it is found to be unsuitable, Cocker Spaniel Rescue Australia (CSRA) are happy to work with applicants to address the issues. If a physical home check is not possible CSRA must be provided (if requested) with photographs of your home and yard.
We ask all potential adopters to complete a questionnaire so that we can find out more about you, your family and your circumstances. This ensures that the right Cocker Spaniel is placed with you. 
If you currently have a veterinary clinic that you attend, could you please provide the contact details (this must include the name of the veterinary surgery/clinic/hospital, their telephone number and an email address). Please make contact with your current veterinary clinic and advise them that you have submitted an adoption form to CSRA and that CSRA will be in contact with them for a reference (ask if they could note it on your records, please). If the veterinary records for your pet are NOT in your name, or if you haven’t been to your veterinarian in 3 or more years, please do not provide their details. Remember we will be seeking a reference about YOU, as a pet owner, not the health status of your pet.
A reference from your current veterinary clinic is much preferred, however if you do not have a current veterinarian that you see, please provide the name of a person (a personal referee) who knows you extremely well, and has visited you at your residence and can vouch for you as a suitable person to adopt a Cocker Spaniel. Contact details must include their name, mobile telephone number and their email address. Please ensure that you have made contact with them to seek their approval to act as a personal referee for you.
Prior to you taking the Cocker Spaniel home, you must confirm that you, and all the members of the family including any dog(s) who currently live in the home, are willing to come and meet the Cocker Spaniel prior to adoption.
If the meet and greet goes well and you wish to take the Cocker Spaniel home with you, the adoption fee must be paid in full on the day. The Cocker Spaniel will NOT be released until evidence of bank transfer has been provided to Cocker Spaniel Rescue Australia.
If you would prefer to collect the Cocker Spaniel at a later date, the date/time/place must be agreed to with the foster carer. The adoption paperwork will be emailed to you once you indicate that you wish to adopt the Cocker Spaniel. And again, payment must be received in full prior to you collecting the Cocker Spaniel. Ownership will not be transferred to you until payment is received.

Please review your application to ensure that you have answered every question,
failure to do so may result in your application being rejected.
