Springer Rescue is an important part of protecting our Breed. We are lucky to have active Springer Rescue organizations in various parts of the Country. We honor these volunteers for providing safe and meaningful lives for springers, who find themselves homeless.
Our rescue organizations will host booths with lots of nice springer and dog themed items for sale. The proceeds from these booths support their various programs. Plan to visit the Rescue booths and get to know these tireless volunteers.
Two events have become a tradition at the National Specialty Show. Information on these events is presented below:
English Springer Rescue America Appreciation Dinner Celebrating 20 Years of Rescue
Join all the Friends of Rescue for a casual evening of conversation and friendship at the English Springer Rescue America Appreciation Dinner where we will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary. It will be held on Thursday evening, October 10, 2019, beginning at 7:00 PM at Pala Mesa Resort. During dinner we will hold a silent auction featuring unique hand-made Springer items you won’t want to miss.
The menu will be a selection of delicious Pacific Rim favorites such as Hawaiian Baby Spinach Salad, Huli Huli Chicken and Smoked Pork Shoulder.
