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 and she has come a looooong way in foster care.  She was treated for giardia, ear and urinary tract infections. Prim has recovered well from her spay, dental, and hernia repair surgery. She is loving her new life and has learned to accept affection and enjoys the company of her furry foster siblings. This is a sweet and precious girl who will bring so much joy to her new family.

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.

Welcome to
  Cavalier Rescue of Alabama
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 has been treated  for dry eye and is now producing normal tears. The drops she is on will need to continue once a day indefintely. Because that had not been treated appropriately in the past, she had bad eye infections and some corneal scarring. Her skin infections are imroving and testing has revealed a need to change the medicine for treatment so we  have done so. Her luxating patella is not an issue for her and does not slow her down a bit. Her beautiful coat is already growing in from being shaved on intake. She is blooming in foster care, loving attention, her walks, has trimmed way down and is simply enjoying life!

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.

 About the Adoption Process:
This sweet Mom came to us with day-old puppies and no milk. After having a litter of six, only two pups survived. We have spent 6 weeks bottle feeding and nurturing pups and they are growing but still very tiny. Lorelai is well form her infections and is slowly learning how wonderful humans, Her new family will need to be very patient with her as she is extremely timid and her skin visually "jumps" when touched by a human. She will settle down and accept affection, but it takes her some time to exhale and relax. It will be incredibly amazing to see her transition into trusting humans and accepting TLC without hesitation.

Simon's is a breeder retiree and we have been entrusted to find his perfect  "retirement" home. He is a very sweet, but a bit timid initially, however he warms up and settles into a lap just as happy as he can be! On intake we found some old corneal scarring which requires no treatment, as well as  grade 4+ dental disease. His heart , knees and hips all checked out great!! Since his lab work looked good,  he underwent his neuter and MUCH needed dental resulting in 10 extractions. Simon is up-to-date on vaccinations and preventives.

Simon is doing great in foster care, loving lots of cuddles, but he's also quite the playful guy! He will enjoy a fenced yard and a furry sibling in his forever home.

 Sam was found as a stray at a Texas truckstop by a good samaritan who reached out to us for help. Our amazing Volunteer took off in the middle of the night to bring Sam into safety! Sadly, Sam has heartworms and good news is that they are treatable. Further testing has revealed that they have caused only mild changes to his heart so far so he shouldn't have any long term effects from them.  He was also suffering form a severs case of  flea dermatitis, Now he's been deflead,  bathed and is getting topical treatment to help soothe and repair that skin. Now that he is in a flea free, clean environment, eating high quality food, and receiving lots of TLC, that skin and fur will continue to thrive. He also some corneal abrasions that we are treating.  He also has some inflammation and pain on the left side of his head, neck, and ear which we are guessing is from some kind of trauma - again, there is no telling what he may have endured. He also has an infection in his anal glands that we are treating and that could have gotten really bad had we not got to him in time.

Sweet Chrissy was rescued out of the puppy mill industry on Saturday. She is a sweet, quiet, gentle, timid girl who is ready to receive the love and affection that she has missed out on for the past 4 years. She is unsure about being approached and handled but is already enjoying gentle petting and closeness as well as being talked to with a soft, sweet voice. Initial intake vetting revealed that she has 'dry eye', severe ear infections, and moderate dental disease. While her heart is clear, she does have luxating patellas (loose knees) which we will assess further in foster care. If they are giving her any pain or discomfort or present any mobility challenges, we will move forward with repairing them.   We've got her started on treatment for dry eye and giardia already.

Sadly, she arrived with extremely matted fur and her ears were not salvageable so had to be shaved. Much of her fur is also quite stained from living in absolute filth. We will be soaking those paws and trimming them back and we look forward to seeing all those reminders of her puppy mill past long gone. We expect sweet Chrissy to just bloom in foster care and we will do everything we can make sure all her days ahead are full of nothing but love and happiness!

Precious Arlo was rescued out of the puppy mill industry and although he is quite young, he is already very damaged by his puppy mill past. His poor physical condition gives us just a glimpse as to how bad of an environment he has been living in. He is completely yellow from living in his own urine and had dried balls of feces and fur matted deeply all around his paws and underside from laying in his own feces and filth. The matts in his ears were so tight and so bad that it was necessary to address this while he was under for surgery to avoind causing the severe pain he was obviously experiencing. He has scabbing, raw skin, and open bleeding lesions all over his body and has started on an oral antibiotic for skin infections. In addition to his all over skin issues, he has severe ear infections and moderate dental disease. His heart and knees are clear at this time.  We have already started treatment for his skin and for giardia.
Arlo is exactly where he needs to be and we are anxious to get him healthy, build up his confidence, and teach him all about love! He is doing well as recovers from his neuter and dental in foster care.

Benny & Joon

Baby Benny (top) & Baby Joon (bottom)  are 2 months old! They will be headed to the vet tomorrow for their first puppy shot and physical exam. Assuming all goes well we will begin to review adoption applications for them as they'll be ready to leave the nest when they turn 12 weeks of age. They will not be placed together. We have plenty of puppy applications on file so we will not be asking for any news applications at this time.

Baby Freckles was rescued out of the puppy mill industry on Saturday. At just 10 weeks old, he is just a baby but has obviously already been through so much. He is longing for human affection and wants to be held and coddled all the time. When not requesting to be held, he has been busy being playful with puppy Potter who was also rescued. . Oddly, he still has visible sutures from a hernia repair which appears to have been done a couple weeks ago when he was just a wee 8 week old. We are quite confused by this but after removing the last bit of the stitches it appears to have healed well. From born in a puppy mill, to having surgery, to being auctioned, then being rescued, this guy has had an eventful first 10 weeks of his life and we now better understand his need to be held and loved over being a playful puppy at this time.
