We are Spaniel Assist Rescue & Re-Homing

Voluntary Non-Profit Association

Founded in July 2015 by Dawn Clough who works tirelessly with the help of volunteers to make sure that each and every Spaniel is placed in the right home for their individual needs. 

Dawn deals with each and every dog personally and always takes great care and attention when choosing the right foster or forever home for each specific dog, based on their own needs. Reassuring and advising owners that are relinquishing their Spaniel, and helping to put their mind at ease at this difficult time.

Spaniel Assist is a Non Profit Group run by a team of dedicated volunteers with one mission - to remove spaniels from vulnerable conditions and find them a safe and loving home and also to rehome for owners that have a change of circumstances

"We’re passionate about spaniels and want them to receive the love and care they deserve”   Dawn Clough, Founder.


Become a Fosterer

Rescued spaniels are immediately placed in foster care across the country where they will be assessed for re-homing. The length of time it takes for a spaniel to be ready for re-homing is down to the individual dog, but the minimum time is four weeks for a full assessment to take place.  When a dog has been assessed then he will be placed in a loving, forever home, although some are adopted by the fosterer after the foster 'assessment' period. 

All potential foster homes will be subject to a home-check before placing a spaniel with them. Could you provide a safe and loving foster home? 

To apply to foster please fill in the form on the 'Foster/Adopt/Volunteer' page, and join our main Facebook group by clicking this link.

Dog Health & Care

All rescued spaniels are given a thorough medical examination by a qualified Vet and receive any necessary vaccinations. They will also be spayed or neutered, and microchipped.

Some spaniels require extra medical treatment if they have been neglected or are unwell. It’s thanks to the fundraising efforts of Spaniel Assist that this veterinary care can be provided.
