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. She had exploratory surgery and a biopsy on 2/23 to determine the cause of some bladder symptoms and  are pleased that the she does not have cancer but instead necrotic tissue which may or may not need to be excised. 
 She has completed her treatmenet for heartworms and is doing well recovering in her foster 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 currently undergoing heartworm treatment and will receive her last injection on 3/13 and will then be ready for her furever home.

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  “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 now recovered from her spay surgery and dental cleaning and is soaking up lots of love in her foster home.   She will be rechecked mid-March and then ready for her furever home!

Sweet Oliver was surrendered by his family to a shelter in Shreveport, Louisiana. We sprung him out & thanks to some furbulous volunteers, he made his arrival into Birmingham, Alabama. We thank the Caddo Parish Animal Shelter for entrusting us with his care.

We were saddened and disappointed to see such neglect - he had dreadlocks of matted fur that we had to cut off, has bilaterial ears infections, severe dental disease, and had nails so long that they were painfully embedded into his paw pads. He has since gone under for his dental (requiring 12 extractions), hernia repair, and eight warts removed. His exam uncovered a mild heart murmur which is expected to diminsh once his dental infection is cleared up. Jolly Ollie is very overweight and this is hard on his back and joints. We have him on the "Abby" diet and it's working!!!

Oliver is very outgoing, friendly, social, active and seems to be very happy to be in our loving care. He is crate trained , fantastic on a leash, and aims to please. This guy is young for his age and will make his new family very happy!

Khloe was released to us a breeder who has trusted us to find her a perfect retirement home.  She is tiny, frail, and underweight at 13 pounds and really needs to gain some weight and muscle. She loves to eat so that should be easy to accomplish! We brought her up to date on vaccinations, and her physical exam shows her hips and knees are clear. 
Her eyes show some aging signs with immature cataracts. She has a very mild, asymptomatic heart murmur which is to be expected for a middle aged Cavalier but with her very bad dental disease, it is likely that murmur will diminish once we take care of those teeth. We are treating her for bad ear infections and she has had  spay surgery, a  much needed dental, and been microchipped. 

She is a very sweet little gal who is ready for calm affection and lots of cuddles.

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.

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.

Sweet Blakely was just rescued out of the puppy mill industry and is a shy, timid girl who obviously has not had any positive experience with humans. Her fur staining gives us a glimpse into the kind of environment she has been in as she is completely stained from laying in her own urine and filth. She also has ruptured cysts on her feet from living on wire all her life. She is timid, shy, and very sweet and is  going to need patience, gentle love, and encouragement. We look forward to her knowing she is safe and loved...for forever. 
Blakely has clear eyes, hips,  a very mild (G1) asymtomatic  heart murmur and mildly loose knees.
She is being treated for ear infections and interdigital cysts and has been brought up to date on vaccinations. She has undergone spay and dental surgery, with 5 extractions. Blakely is settled into foster care where she has started her diet and where normal every day activity will not only be good for the weight loss but will likely tighten those knees up.

Bug was just rescued out of the puppy mill industry and she is absolutely terrified and appears to be the most traumatized of the group. Her fear is all consuming and she just scatters to the farthest back corner away from everything. Her sweet eyes look like they have seen a ghost and her body jumps, twitches and convulses at even the slightest, most gentle touch. Thankfully she is healthy and in good shape with clear eyes, hips, knees and heart and is just being treated for ear infections and giardia. Her little teats are just raw from being reproductively abused.

She has had a spay, dental, and ear treatment and is settling into foster care where she is being rehabilitated for her extreme emotional damage caused by her horrific puppy mill past.

Sweet Jolie was just rescued out of the puppy mill industry and she is a timid, sweet, gentle girl who is a bit unsure about this new world around her. Like the others, we are treating her for giardia and bad ear infections but she is congenitally sound with clear eyes, hips, and heart. She needs patience, lots of gentle love, and encouragement. We feel once she settles in and knows that she is safe that she is going to really come around.

She has had surgery for a spay, dental, and ear treatment and is getting settled into her foster home. Because of her fever on intake, we held off on vaccinations but she will soon be rechecked and vetting completed.

Silly McKayla was just rescued out of the puppy mill industry and is ready to start her new fabulous life. She is wanting lots of attention and gentle affection and her cute little personality is starting to emerge. She likes to really stretch out among lots of comfy blankets and will wag her tail loudly to get your attention to come give her belly rubs. She is congenitally sound with clear eyes, hips, knees, and heart. Once her UTI and ear infections clear she will be a healthy girl and is going to add a lot of love and laughter to a family.

She is recovering from her spay & dental surery, and  ear treatment in her foster home getting plenty of snuggles and TLC.

Desi -left  |  Lizzy -right

Little Desi & Lizzy are 1 year old sisters who were just rescued out of the puppy mill industry. They are shy and timid but very sweet and accepting of very gentle love. We feel they will bloom quickly once they get settled in and learn they are safe. They are seemingly very much enjoying each other’s company and find a lot of comfort and companionship in each other - they can be found completely sprawled out, laying right on top of each other. We feel they would be an excellent pair and would be a very happy together!

Both girls underwent surgery for a spay, light dental, and ear treatment and are settled into foster care. We expect they will be ready for adoption once they are recovered from their procedures.
