WHEN a dog is in the "AVAILABLE for ADOPTION" section, click their photo to read their adoption requirements. If you MEET ALL OF THEIR REQUIREMENTS, AND they seem to be a GREAT MATCH FOR YOUR FAMILY, reach out via email to express your interest.
Your appropriately-timed email, will trigger a review of your application for that particular dog. Emailing us with interest about a dog who is not "Available for Adoption" results in no action, does not put you on any "list, and will not flag your app for review.
Due to health and/or age, these sweethearts are in our Hospice Program. They are members of a special, loving family of their very own, while The Cavalier Rescue continues to provide for their care. You can donate specifically to Violet's Fund to provide care for our Hospice Angels here:
This means that we have identified a prospective family for these
dogs and are working through the adoption process with them.
Violet's Fund was founded by The Cavalier Rescue in honor of Cavaliers in need of hospice care. By purchasing this t-shirt in Violet's memory, you will be making a donation to support The Cavalier Rescue's effort to bring comfort, peace, and care to Cavaliers entering their end of life phase.
Congratulations to sweet Bessie and her furever family on their adoption today 💜 Bessie arrived into rescue back in August and her intake vetting is a day we will never forget. Not only were we shocked to find out she had a serious congenital heart defect (PDA) that would require life saving surgery, but we also found out she was very pregnant and due any day!
We held our breathe as Bessie delivered sweet Samantha just a few days later 🎀 And when 2 newborn puppies came into our care Bessie took them under her wing and nursed and cared for them until all 3 pups were healthy and strong! We then held our breathe once again when Bessie went under for life saving heart surgery at the University of Georgia. Thankfully it was a big success and Bessie’s heart is now as good as new ❤️
Bessie, mom of the year 🏆, watched as her 3 precious pups got wonderful furever homes and today was Bessie’s day! It was a bittersweet goodbye as she headed home to Franklin, Tennessee with her new furever family. Happy furever, special girl! 💕
An extra special and extra bittersweet day... congratulations to sweet Oliver and his furever family on their adoption 💜 Oliver has been in our care for the past 6 months and was obviously overlooked by many because of his age and congenital health issues. We are thankful for his family who knew that despite those things, he still needed and deserved a wonderful home and family 💕 They recognized all the benefits of having a senior dog, and moreover what an absolute gem Oliver is 💎
We are also happy to report that he just had his recheck echocardiogram before heading home and not only has there not been any progression of his mitral valve disease, his parameters have actually improved, and his hypertension is gone 🙌🏻
Oliver is making the short trip over to his new home in Atlanta, Georgia 🏡 Happy furever, precious boy! We love you! 💜
