Boykin Spaniel Rescue, Inc. offers three (3) Programs to assist in re-homing dogs:
An owner surrender refers to a dog in which BSR deems the dog at-risk, and therefore is legally transferred to BSR. BSR will fully vet and evaluate each dog to determine the needs of the dog. Once determined, the dog will be rehabilitated until cleared for adoption.
If needed, BSR can assist owners in re-homing their Boykins themselves by connecting the owner with pre-approved applicants for their consideration. The applicant and the owner determine if there is a match, but BSR is not involved in the determination of placement. Owners may not ask for a re-homing fee if they want to work with BSR for this purpose. Dogs eligible for Owner Assisted re-homing must be neutered or spayed, up to date on vet care and healthy, and have no behavioral issues or history of aggression.

BSR will post the availability of the dog on our website for a small fee, and the owner may be contacted by anyone seeing the post (approved applicant or the general public). Please click here for more information.
If you need more information, or to further discuss any of the options above, please contact Jeannine Culbertson, by clicking here or calling 877-523-3647 (if we are unable to answer, your call will be returned from a 540 area code).
