We rescued sweet 6 year old Eliza out of the puppy mill industry where she was advertised as "running with a male". We started with an ultrasound and xray to ensure that she was not pregnant - we were relieved that she was not! She is a big girl though with some weight to lose and some muscles to firm up which should be easy to do now that she has the opportunity for daily exercise and activity which she has been withheld from in living in confinement all of her life.
Her exam revealed KCS (dry eye), ear infections, dental disease, and an enlarged kidney. Futher testing revelead a normal protein:creatinine ratio and normal kidney function! This will just be something to recheck when she has her routine exams.
Her ear, eye and mouth infections are healing nicely as is her spay incision. She is definitely coming out of her shell and getting a little pep in her step!

A shelter in Texas who was overflowing with intakes asked us to spring this sweet girl out after no one came to claim her during her stray hold. She was found in the Corpus Christi / Bishop, TX area and did not have tags or a microchip. Sadly, she is heartworm positive so we started her on 30 days of doxycycline to prepare her for her first treatment injection which will occurred on October 12th.
This tiny girl has settled nicely into her foster home where she is getting plenty of TLC.

Autumn is a 3 year old sweetheart that we rescued out of the puppy mill industry.
We brought Autumn up to date on vaccinations and started her for treatment of giardia. She has also started on 30 days of doxycycline because she sadly, tested positive for heartworms and will start to undergo the lengthy and difficult treatment for them. We were pleased to find that her eyes, knees, and hips are clear. She has recovered from spay surgery, umbilical hernia repair, and a good teeth cleaning well . Her first injection for heart worm disease will be November 3rd.

Maple is a 4 year old sweetheart who we just rescued out of the puppy mill industry. She is quite timid and terrified of humans and being touched and handled but is very curious about the new world around her. She is not shy to move around and check things out and seems very enthusiastic about her freedom! Because she's never had a positive experience with humans, the human contact and trust will take some time but we expect this sweet girl to bloom in foster care.
We've brought her up to date on vaccinations and she's being treated for ear infections and giardia. She underwent her spay and dental today where she received a much needed cleaning. Her hips, knees, and eyes are clear and she has a ever so slight murmur over the mitral valve. She is a few pounds overweight and lacking muscle tone (from living a life of confinement) but she is going to shape up really nicely now with just daily activity and high quality food.
Maple is an absolutely beautiful girl with the sweetest, most gentle disposition. She hasn't quite figured out that she is safe and loved yet but know she will get there soon with the help of her foster family.

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 and to 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. 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.
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.

Congratulations to our precious Arlo and his furever family on their adoption today! 💜 What a bittersweet day it is for us to send this sweet boy off, but we are so thrilled for him and his family!

Just rescued out of the puppy mill industry, precious Jett is a 6 month old tri color boy weighing 7 pounds. His physical exam checked out great - clear eyes, knees, hips, and heart. We have started treatment for giardia and he recovering from neuter surgery on the loving care of his foster home.
Jett is the most laid back, chilled out puppy. Some of that may be just some initial cautiousness and we may very well see him become a wild puppy as he settles in, but right now he is extremely content and most happy just being in your arms.

After 5 years spent in the puppy mill industry, sweet Gracen has just been rescued. We have learned that she was actually auctioned last December where she was bought by a puppy miller and during her time in that mill she missed her heat cycle. Because she was unable to bring in any money for that puppy mill, she was then auctioned again this past weekend where we finally were able to successfully get her out.
This tender, loving 5 year old tri color beauty just couldn't be any more precious and appreciative. Gracen is a big girl at 29 pounds but like many puppy mill mamas, she is "soft" and is lacking muscle tone from living a life of confinement. She is going to tone up and lose a few pounds rather easily in foster care with a high quality food and just regular daily activity.
We were overjoyed that her physical exam checked out well and that she is congenitally sound with clear eyes, knees, hips, and heart as well absolutely perfect bloodwork results. She is receiving treatment for ear infections and raging giardia, and is recovering form a much needed dental cleaning and spay surgery.
recovers and gets comfortable with us here in rescue. We are just overjoyed to her have with us.

Just rescued out of the puppy mill industry, sweet Apple is a 7 month old Blenheim girl weighing 9.9 pounds. Her physical exam checked out great - clear eyes, knees, hips, and heart. We were not provided any vaccination records so instead of putting her at risk of over vaccination, we have sent off titers to check her level of immunity and we are awaiting those results. We have started treatment for giardia and she recovering form spay surgery and extraction of a couple baby teeth.
Apple is very much your typical 7 month puppy in that she is quite active and playful and is need of plenty of engagement, stimulation, play and activity. She would greatly benefit from having another furry playmate who can match her activity level 🐶
