Jakey's Blankeys mission is to provide love, security, warmth, and a sense of comfort to Cavalier King Charles Spaniels scared, sick, recovering, abandoned, or otherwise in need through the gift of new and lovingly donated blankets. Jakey's Blankeys is a program through Cavalier Rescue of Alabama and inspired by Jake, a very special rescued Cavalier who loved his blanket.
After a life of commercial breeding and neglect, #271, Jake, was rescued off the auction block on July 11, 2015 in Wheaton, Missouri, and welcomed into Cavalier Rescue of Alabama.
We wrapped sick and scared Jake in a blanket and promised him that everything would be okay. After spending over 6 years in a puppy mill, Jake was suffering both physically and emotionally from the extreme neglect. Amongst many health issues, Jake was diagnosed with gingival squamous cell carcinoma, an aggressive mouth cancer that had already eaten away at his jaw bone and spread into his lymph nodes. Jake was only given 4 months to live.
The very same blanket that provided him warmth and security after being rescued, gave him comfort and love throughout his very brave battle with cancer. After fighting like a warrior for nearly 13 months, wrapped in his very special blankey and surrounded by his family, Jake crossed the Rainbow Bridge on August 5, 2016.
