Sweet 7 year old breeder release, Cindy Lou, came from a kennel here in Alabama. She has been a breeding dog all of her life and we are so happy for her that she now has the opportunity to experience freedom, family, and love. She was also absolutely filthy, smelly, and matted so we first got her all cleaned up, bathed, and groomed.

We brought her up to date on vaccinations, ran labwork and gave her a physical exam. Her exam revealed that she has clear hips, knees, and heart (woot woot!) She had dental disease, dirty ears, and conjunctivitis in her eyes. We also treated her for giardia and a urinary tract infection. She has now undergone surgery for her spay, much -needed dental, and hernia repair. Cindy Lou is recovering nicely in her foster home where she is getting plenty of love and cuddles. 
  
She did test positive for heartworms as has begun heartworm treatment.  He will finish treatment in March and will then be looking for her forever home.

 

Vestavia Hills, Alabama

Crystal came into our program from a shelter, so no information was available on her but it is obvious that she is a back-yard breeder “dump”.  She has definitely had multiple litters and her care has been neglected for quite some time. The condition of her fur and paws are consistent with living in confinement. In fact, she is missing all her upper front teeth which we strongly suspect is from trying to gnaw her way out to freedom.

We brought her up to date on vaccinations and sent off labwork which looks normal  but sadly, she has tested positive for heartworms. Her physical exam shows much neglect with ear infections, dental disease, hookworms, and flea infestation. The good news is that all of that is 100% treatable! We were very pleased that she is congenitally sound with clear eyes, hips, knees, and heart, meaning that once we get her all fixed up, she is going to be good as new!

She has recovered well from her spay surgery, umbilical hernia repair, and much needed dental, where it was necessary to have 9 extractions. She's been treated for hookworms, ear infections, have rid her of fleas. She is on her 30 days of doxycycline to lead up to her first heartworm treatment injection to take place 2/12.

Kingston was recently rescued out of the puppy mill industry via a complete kennel sell out. He has an absolutely darling face, curly coat, and the most delicious marshmallow cheeks!

We've treated him for giardia, ear infections, and a urinary tract infection.  We've brought him up to date on vaccinations and he is now neutered, microchipped, and on monthly preventatives. His physical exam also revealed that all of his teeth have rotted out so sometimes his little tongue hangs out.  He has interdigital cysts which are wounds in between his toes from living on wire - these take some time to heal and will need regular foot soaks and a topical ointment applied to his feet for several months.  He has an asymptomatic heart murmur which is to be expected for a Cavalier of his age, as well as weak and arthritic knees and hips which he takes a couple joint supplements for.

He is the sweetest boy who is discovering the wonderful world around him - his mobility is getting better and better and he is even showing interest in some toys and play! He has some specific needs for his forever home including no stairs, a fenced yard, and another dog of similar size and temperament.

Hudson

& Hayden

Conrad is a beautiful boy just rescued out of the puppy mill industry. He is all puppy when he’s on his feet as he’s very explorative and on the go but very scared and timid around humans and being approached, handled, and touched. We are treating Conrad for giardia and ear infections and he has been neutered. Conrad’s eyes, hips, knees, and heart are clear. Conrad is recovering  recovered from his surgery and finishing up d with medications and will be available for adoption in mid February.  He is going to need a playful, active canine furiend, a fenced in yard with plenty of room to run, play, and enjoy his freedom. Older, gentle children are also okay for this guy.

Sadie

Alpharetta, Georgia

Brookhaven, Georgia 

Sadie is a sweet little beauty who we just rescued out of the puppy mill industry. This poor girl desperately needed rescue and we are thrilled that she is in our care getting the help she needs. She is being treated for giarda, ear infections, and  neglected dry eye which has caused a secondary eye infection. She’s on a tear stimulant drop, lubricating eye drop, and antibiotic eye ointment.

She also tested positive for ehrlichiosis, a tick-borne illness that left untreated can cause some really awful symptoms. She will be on doxycycline for at least a month for treatment and will recheck at that time. We do not expect any lon-term issues from this.

Sadie also has d “dropped carpus” on her front paws  which affects her ligaments, tendons and her gait. We believe this is from a life of confinement and poor nutrition during growth. This should improve now that she has the opportunity for daily activity so that surgical correction will not be required.

She is recovering from her spay surgery and dental cleaning and is soaking up plety oflove in her foster home, She has been very still, very quiet, and quite inactive so we are hoping to see her come to life soon.

Conrad Sweet Ava is presuins and petite girl recently rescued out of the puppy mill industry> She has already had multiple litters of babies at her youhg age. Having no positive experience with humans up until now, she is very shy, timid and fearful although we think once she learns that she is safe and loved that she is going to really blossom. She is being treated for giardia and some of the worst ear infections we have ever seen with her entire ear filled up with dried blood. Today, she underwent her spay surgery and much needed dental cleaning and is now in her foster home resting and recovering. Her eyes, knees, hips and heart are clear. Ava will need some time in foster care to learn all about love, trust, and this wonderful new world around her and will then need a quiet, calm, patient furever home filled with lots of gentle love

At Cavalier Rescue of Alabama, we work to ensure our dogs and families are well matched. That is why we use  a specific and thorough process for matching our rescues with families . It is in the best interest of the dog and the adopting family.

 The Adoption Application is required to be considered for adoption.  You only need to apply once, not per dog. Additionally, we do recommend that you contact us via email (not text or facebook messages) after you submit an application to express your interest. Please  include photos of your home and family and anything else that would provide us insight to help us to best match a dog with your family.  While we place dogs coast-to-coast, the adopting family MUST be willing and able to travel to the foster home.  Please understand we "work for the dogs" and  making  great matches is paramount.


   
 

  

While we are headquartered in Alabama, we place Cavaliers coast--to-coast!  Please check this page often to keep up with the angels in our program. We introduce them here and share their stories as we search for the perfect forever homes for each and every one. Our process is thorough, and while we do not place dogs on a first-come, first-served basis, we DO review applications chronologically to find that perfect match.
If you are on a specific timeline to bring a precious Cavalier into your family, then rescue may not be the right fit for you. We are happy to refer you to responsible, reputable, and health-focused breeders.
Like us on Facebook to see frequent updates and join live sessions where we share information and  answer questions.
