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:
RESCUE DINNER and SILENT AUCTION
The Rescue Dinner and Silent Auction is always a hit at the National. This year, the Dinner and Silent Auction will take place on Thursday at Pala Mesa.
Plans for the event are still being made. Once the details are finalized, more information and a way to make reservations will be added here.

The Rescue Parade is a highlight of the National Specialty. The Rescue Parade will be held on Friday in the conformation ring. A commemorative booklet featuring the resumes and pictures of entered dogs will be given to each entrant and will be available to spectators.
The Rescue Parade is limited to 20 dogs and bitches that have been placed through a rescue organization. All rescue dogs shall be spayed or neutered. There is no age limitation. All dogs must be current on vaccines and of a pleasant temperament to participate and must be handled by an adult, although other family members are welcome to walk with them.
There is no cost to participate in the Rescue Parade, but pre-registration is required. Use the following form to pre-register, or email the same information to Sue Schroer at email@example.com.
