:: Our Mission
The CKCSCGSD Rescue is provided to benefit Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in need of Help. The Rescue will care for, evaluate, provide medical care, and re-home Cavaliers that need these services.  Rescue will work with Shelters when Cavaliers are in shelter situations.  Rescue will also provide, as required, advice for Cavalier owners that may help the dog remain in its original home, and will provide follow-up assistance as needed for newly placed dogs to facilitate a successful transition to the new home.



Most of the Cavaliers shown below have all been adopted.  Rarely are Cavaliers shown that are currently in rescue and available for adoption.  We are always looking for appropriate homes for rescue Cavaliers.  The ideal home would be a home in which there is someone home for at least  part of the day, Cavaliers do not do well left alone for extended periods of time.  If you don't complete our application....we don't know you are interested in adopting a Cavalier. 

  Are you interested in becoming a Foster Home for Cavaliers in need?   Complete the Application Form in the left-hand menu.


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. 


CHANCE:  Chance is a healthy 5 1/2 year old neutered ruby male.  He is heart and eye clear and has no patella problems.  He is a very friendly playful and loving but does show signs of food aggression around other dogs and small children.  Chance is potty trained, enjoys walks and riding in the car.  Chance will do best as the only dog in the home.  Chance will only be adopted to a family with no other dogs and children over 10 years old.


Sweet Pea and Monet - Sweet pea (Tri) and Monet (Black & Tan) are both beautiful 6 year old, unaltered females.  They are as sweet as can be and love to be loved.  They came into the CKCS Club's rescue program because the owner couldn't care for them anymore.  Both girls get along well with people of all ages, other dogs and cats.  They are current on all vaccinations and will be spayed prior to adoption.  These girls grew up together since they were puppies and MUST be adopted together.   If you are interested in adopting these two, please contact rescue.  An adoption application must be submitted before consideration. 


Lance  Lance is a 5 year old male that was turned over to rescue becasue his last owner couldn't keep him anymore.  Lance has been adopted to a lovely family in San Diego that has another Cavalier.  He is now enjoying a new home with his new family and "brother" and is loving life!

Lizzy is a sweet, 4 year old female that was saved by an animal control officer after she was thrown on the street by her previous owner.  Lizzy's new family fell in love with her the minute they laid eyes on her.  She is now living in La Jolla and is treated like a queen. 

Many, Many thanks to all of the wonderful people out there that donated to Rosie's surgery.  She has had one successful procedure and will have her second in the early part of 2010.

Tanner and Rosie  have just recently come into our rescue program. Tanner  (left) is a three year old male and Rosie (right) is a 4.5 year old female.  They are currently being evaluated as to their needs and have both been adopted by their foster family.

Charlie is a sweet, adorable,  5 year old, 22 lb. neutered male..  He was turned into rescue because his previous family could no longer care for him. 

Charlie had skin, eye and ear infections but with some antibiotics and TLC, he is better than ever.  Pictured on the left with his new family in Del Mar that has two young boys that will love him forever! Our rescue committee will definitely miss you sweet Charlie!!





Sparky is a sweet, loving 9 year old boy that needed a new home.  His owner could no longer care for him and was kind enough to ask the CKCSCGSD Rescue to find him a new one.  Sparky is now living the rest of his life in a beautiful home in Mission Viejo with wonderful parents that love him dearly and now answers to his new Moniker, "Bailey".


Elsie is a 6 year old love bug.  She was a "breeding mama" that came from a puppy mill in Anza, CA.  She fortunately made it out of there and had been living her new life with a foster and three other Cavaliers.  Elsie's favorite thing is to lie on a lap, give kisses, eat and nap.  Due to cataracts, she can not see well.  She can not chew on toys because her teeth are very bad.  She was adopted to a wonderful lady and is now living the rest of her life in Northern California.   She will be getting her complete dental soon and is already being spoiled like she deserves! Her new name is now Annie.

Charlie's previous owner had a son with severe allergies and had to find him a new home. Sweet Charlie was soon adopted by a very nice couple in central CA. He now loves to ride the golf cart to the golf course daily and sit on his new owner's lap. Their daughter lives nearby and owns two Cavaliers as well. Now Charlie has wonderful play dates just about everyday! He is so happy in his new home and his new parents love him.  


Lucy is a sweet outgoing 6 month old who came into rescue needing surgery for a luxating patella.  She has such a spunky puppy personality and loves to play.  Lucy didn't get the best start in life but thanks to her new family she's getting the medical care she needs and all the love a little dog could ask for

Abby's owner had some medical problems that prevented her from continuing to care for this 6 year old sweetie.  It was so hard to give her up, but she knew she had to do what was best for Abby.  Abby was adopted by a lovely couple who had previously owned a Cavalier and were patiently awaiting the next furry member to join their family.  This was a perfect match....Abby is so happy in her new home and her new parents just adore her


Cooper's owner had some physical problems that no longer allowed her to care for him.  He sure is a happy fellow and we knew he would adapt easily.  Cooper now lives the cosmopolitan life downtown.  He goes everywhere with his new owner.  She calls him the one true love of her life.  Now that's love!!



Teddy is now in his forever home. He was a 10 month old neutered male when he came into our program.  He is crate trained and house broken  He is still considered a puppy and has the typical high-energy that puppies have for now. He is very curious about his surroundings (good sign of intelligence) and gets along with other dogs very well.  Definitely loves to play fetch and playing in the yard. He  would be great with children from 6 yrs up. He is house broken and sleeps in the crate at night or when left at the house.

GRYFFINDOR - Has been adopted! His foster mom and dad have decided that they would like to keep this special boy.



Jitterbug is a 5 year old male who spent two weeks in a boarding facility before being put in a shelter when his owner went into an assisted living facility.  He was rescued from the shelter and spent a couple of days in a foster home before coming to us for placement.  He is a sweet boy who was looking for some loving and a sense of security.  We are thrilled that Jitterbug is now in his forever home with a kitty sister and a mom who works from home and can give him all of the attention he needs.. 


Roxy was a sweet little 18 month old female who was turned over to us in the hopes that we would be able to find her a new home.  Her owners selflessly decided that they needed to do what was best for Roxy due to an illness in their family.  They knew she needed and deserved lots of attention and saw that the situation in their home would not allow this.  It was felt she would do best in a home where there was another dog for her to pal around with and where someone would be home during the day.  We found such a wonderful home for her with another Cavalier.  She is thriving and doing well.  

Rusty was a sweet little boy who was placed in our care in the hopes that he would find his forever home where he would get the attention and affection he deserved.  Rusty did find his forever home.  He now lives with a wonderful family with a teenage daughter (who loves to have Rusty sleep on her bed) and the family's four year old female cavalier, Layla.  Rusty sure is a happy boy and is now living the good life. 

Charlie is a beautiful three-year-old boy who was in need of a home where he would get the love and attention he needed.  He had the sweetest disposition and was such a calm loving boy.  He is now living with a family and their dog and cat.  The family’s 10-year-old son just adores Charlie and loves to take him for walks.  Charlie has made himself right at home and is doing great.


 Bailey and Bandit- Bailey (tri, 7 years old) and Bandit (blenheim, 6 1/2 years old) are a terrific twosome needing a new home.  They came to us in need of a new home where they would receive lots of love and attention.  It was imperative that they be placed together as they were very bonded with each other.  These guys are absolute loves and very sweet.  They have found a terrific home with a family who has a special needs 2 1/2 year old female cavalier named Poppy.  Poppy has gotten along very well with Bailey and Bandit, in fact, they have helped to broaden her world.  We are so happy to see Bailey and Bandit soaking up all of the attention they could dream about.
