Donation FAQs

Why do you need donations?

Cocker Spaniel Rescue spends an average of over $350 to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome each dog in the program. The $200 adoption fee pays just a small portion of our actual program costs. The difference is made up by donations and fundraising efforts.
Are my donations tax deductible?

Yes! CSRA is a 501(c)(3) charity and our EIN is 20-5647630. Your donations are deductable to the full extent allowed by law.
Can I donate online?
