Dear Friends,
We’ve received numerous inquiries regarding an auction involving approximately 100 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels of various ages.
The ACKCS Rescue Trust, as a policy, does not purchase dogs.  We are aware that various groups and individuals are making a significant effort to raise funds to purchase the dogs.  It is estimated that approximately $300,000 will be needed between the various groups to obtain all of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels being sold at this auction.  If you would like to support the effort of individuals outside the Rescue Trust to purchase the dogs:
The dogs purchased from proceeds raised by this fund will be turned over to the ACKCS Rescue Trust.  Their fundraiser photo to the right is also a clickable link to their fundraiser site.
As always, any dogs entrusted to the ACKCS Rescue Trust will be cared for and made available to appropriate homes
as soon as possible.  We anticipate many issues, both medical and social, will need to be addressed.  These dogs will be in need of veterinary care, volunteer foster homes, transport, and forever homes.  If you are interested in volunteering or adopting a dog from the ACKCS Rescue Trust, please submit the Volunteer and/or Adoption Applications found on this site.

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.  I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.  I wagged my tail, but not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.  I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today.  Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past.  I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.  I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.  Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.  Soon my kennel door opened, and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.  I would promise to keep her safe.  I would promise to always be by her side.  I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.  I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.

So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved.

At least, I was able to save one.

I rescued a human today.
