Who we are...
Cavalier Rescue USA (Northeast Region) is a foster and adoption program for Cavaliers in need of loving new homes. We cover rescue adoptions in the following states: CT, DE, DC, MA, ME, MD, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT, and WV, and are associated with the original parent club for the breed, CKCSC, USA.
Cavaliers who are given to rescue by owners no longer able to keep them, and those rescued from shelters and pounds, are brought into foster homes where they are evaluated, brought up to date medically, and cared for by dedicated volunteers until a permanent, loving home is found. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, and welcome donations to help us pay for the medical needs of foster dogs. To donate, please click on the "Make A Donation" button.
Adopting a Friend...
The number of Cavaliers in rescue has been growing, and we are always looking for loving, responsible homes. As you'd guess though, we're very picky about where our foster dogs go, and are patient until we find the absolute best match for a dog in our care. When we have a dog available for adoption for whom we are seeking applications, we will post the dog on petfinder.com. We otherwise adopt through our existing applicant pool. If you meet the requirements noted for the particular dog we've posted and you'd like to be considered as the dog's new family, you are welcome to call or email us. The adoption process then starts with a written application. If your home is likely to be a great match, then the process progresses as follows...there is a telephone interview, reference checks, talk with the foster family, a visit with the foster dog in his/her foster home, a home visit, and post-adoption follow-up. There is a donation requested which varies based on the age and health of the dog.
Please note that while we occasionally have puppies, we normally don't post them, and either place them through existing applications or with families who have adopted an older or special needs dog from us in the past. The majority of rescued Cavaliers in this area are young to middle aged adult dogs, some with special needs or health issues. We also get some senior citizens each year, and these are especially endearing and in need of great homes.
