Primrose is a precious 9 year old blenheim lady. We rescued her from the puppy mill industry at an auction. Nine long years in the puppy mill industry has taken its toll on sweet Prim. She is emotionally damaged from her puppy mill past and will need to learn how to just be a dog. Terrified of humans and this new world around her, she will need time, patience, encouragement and a lot of gentle love and TLC. She was treated for giardia, ear and urinary tract infections. Prim has recovered well in her foster home after spay, dental, and hernia repair surgery. She is loving her new life and is seeking her family NOW!

Rich is a petite 5 year old blenheim baby boy. We rescued him from  the puppy mill industry at an auction. Rich is a timid little guy who clearly has not had a lot of positive interaction with humans. He is recovering is his foster home for his neuter and dental surgery. His dental disease was so severe he required 17 extractions! Rich is also being treated for giardia, whipworms, ear infections, and KCS (dry left eye). Despite a rough start to life, he has been so brave and has accepted sweet cuddles - and we think he likes it! Watching him on the grass for the first time was both heartbreaking and heartwarming. We think he will be one who will just bloom once he has figured out that he has hit the jackpot!

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.

Bailey is a darling girl who was suffering from some serious grooming and basic care neglect, and some medical issues when she came in.  She was also obese and that alone was taking a toll on her body -  she has a grade 4 luxating patella (knee out of socket) and all that extra weight has not helped. She also has 'dry eye' and is not producing any tears. Because that had not been treated appropriately, she had bad eye infections and some corneal scarring. She had an overgrowth of yeast everywhere, including bad fungal and bacterial infections in her ears so we 'packed' them with antifungals, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatories. The fungal infection was rampant throughout her body and skin growing from her paw pads to the tip of her nose - she had many open sores as well, and is on oral antibiotics and an anti-fungal. Her nails were so long that some even curled into the paw pad leaving abrasions. Unfortunately, we had to shave her completely, but her beautiful coat is already growing in. She is already feeling so much better and if full of love to give.

Jacob is a tall guy and weighing just 16 pounds, he is sadly, emaciated. An absolutely stunning boy, he required over an hour of grooming because he was in such bad shape. We can't wait to see him with some pounds packed on and all his feathering and ears grown in. He has the most gentle, soulful eyes which match his spirit. He is a lover, a sweetheart, and a gentleman and is settling into a great life wih his foster family very well.

This tiny tot is a sweet, quiet, timid little girl who we think will soon learn that all these new people and new things around her are actually wonderful! At just 2 years of age, she's got her whole life to look forward that will now be filled with love, family, and happiness instead of puppy mill hell, neglect, and reproductive abuse.

 After 5 years in puppy mill industry, Dewey is broken. We are so thankful he is here with us now so that we can rehabilitate him and begin to replace all those bad memories and fears with peaceful and happy ones. He is a sensitive, gentle giant at almost 30 lbs. and while could lose a pound or two is just extremely sturdy and solid. We so look forward to helping this guy gain some confidence and learn that he is safe and loved.
Dewey was cleared for surgery and received his neuter, hernia repair, and much needed dental with 7 extractions. He is in his foster home resting and recovering while getting as much TLC as he will accept.

At age 10.5, Jack is far overdue to learn all about family, love and TLC so we are thrilled to have secured him so we can ensure that he experiences all that and more. He has the most luxurious and rich ruby coat and is truly personality plus with the silly tongue to match his big character!
Because a significant heart murmur was detected, Jack made a trip over to our cardiologistfor a full cardiac evaluation. While he is not yet symptomatic, he does have some changes to his heart structure with enlargement on his left side so he is starting heart medication to help slow down any further progression.  He underwent his neuter and dental and did great and is now fully recovered!

A super zesty, active, playful guy, we continue to be blown away by him and his energy! You would never think that he was almost 11 years old. All in all he is really pretty good shape and even better spirits! We are just happy that he is feeling so good and obviously enjoying himself!

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.

This sweet Mom came to us with day-old puppies and almost no milk. After having a litter of six, only two pups survived. After receiving fluids and being bottle fed around the clock, the puppies, Benny and Joon, are responding and gaining strength. Mom is headed to the vet so we can get her medical needs addressed asap. There will be more to come about this sweet little family soon.
