Becoming A SSRI Member

Membership means getting involved and working as a team with members across the region. We work together in positive ways. We are kind and encouraging to each other instead of criticizing each other. People who want to get involved actively become members.

The organizational culture embraces the view: “it’s about the dogs” and the methods of “the business with a heart” to stretch funds.

We are passionate about helping all ages of Springer Spaniels including seniors and juniors. We give them medical care, behavioral training if needed, and therapeutic treatments to help them get ready for adoption by people who will love and care for them.

We are matchmakers not sales people when it comes to the dogs we rescue, we find the right people for the dog’s needs and desires. This means dogs come into foster care for a long enough time, for to be able to assess the dogs personality, medical condition and behavioral habits. 

If you live in the western United States and this matches your core values, we would love to have you join the team of positive, caring and wise people.
