There are a few Cocker Spaniel clubs around the United States that are involved in competitions and preserving the breed. There are also a few rescue groups that help foster and re-home Cocker Spaniels.

Some of these groups and rescue groups are inclusive to both American Cocker Spaniels and English Cocker Spaniels, but others are more specific to the Cocker Spaniel breed.

The American Spaniel Club

The American Spaniel Club was established in 1881 and is still very active today. They hold some educational seminars, which overview the general care of Cocker Spaniels and how to present show dogs to judges. Their website contains valuable information on the breed standard.  They are also involved with the ASC Annual Flushing Spaniel Show, and the Cocker Spaniel National. If you are interested in adopting a Cocker Spaniel, they also do breeder referral.
