Important Updates To DFWCSR's Adoption Process

DFWCSR is dedicated to finding forever homes for each and every dog we have in our rescue. We have an application process that we have used for many years that helps us make the best possible decision for every Cocker. This process includes an in-person home visit for every applicant.

Because of the current situation with the COVID-19 (Corona) virus, in-person home visits are not possible at this time. Since this is a very important part of finding the best home for our dogs, we are not accepting any applications from first-time pet owners or applicants who have not had a pet in the past 3 years. We hope you understand and that you will consider applying to adopt once the shelter-in-place restrictions have been lifted.

DFWCSR To Start Collecting Sales Tax On Adoption Fees

Effective immediately, DFW Cocker Spaniel Rescue will begin including sales tax in the cost of all adoptions. The sales tax will be collected with the adoption fee at the time of adoption. The State of Texas does NOT consider adoptions by animal rescue groups as exempt from state sales tax. This is not a new law, but the State of Texas has indicated it will not proceed to collect back taxes from rescue groups if they comply with the law prospectively as of January 01, 2020 and submit a reconciliation of adoption fees for the last 7 years.
