The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Canada will occasionally be contacted requesting help to rehome a Cavalier. Cavaliers come into Rescue for many reasons but often it is an older person, who is no long able to care for their pet.
The Club averages only one or two dogs per year that need to be rehomed. They are usually older dogs and sometimes they will have health concerns. Very often, they are not suitable for a home with young children.
Most Cavalier owners contact their breeder directly if they can’t keep their dog for any reason, and the breeder will take the dog back and, if possible, rehome him/her.
When we do rehome these dogs, the Veterinary care they require and any other costs are taken into consideration. Some of these costs are passed on to the respective adopter. There is always a cost associated with acquiring a Cavalier that requires a new home.
Currently, we have a long waiting list of people wanting a Cavalier in need of a new home.
