Owner Assistance

Do you need assistance finding a loving new home for your Springer?

ESRA may be able to help.

We offer owner assistance to Springer owners coast to coast who find themselves unable to keep their dog. We typically have a list of approved adopters who are eager to adopt a Springer. They have gone through a careful screening process. We take great care to place each dog in the right home and setting where he/she will thrive.

The most common way that we help owners is by taking Springers into our foster care program. Typically, the dog would stay with a foster family before we match him or her with an adopter. A foster home is a household usually with another Springer or two. We are all huge Springer fans, experienced with spoiling them and making them at ease in the foster home. It really helps us get to know the dog so we can place him/her in the most suitable home.

For dogs that aren’t suitable for adoption, sometimes we can lend other support or refer owners to experienced trainers or resources.
