Adopting A Friend

What it takes to adopt a Cavalier from Cavalier Rescue of Florida, Inc.
After doing your research, if you still want a Cavalier rescue, and if you are a Florida resident, we would love to help you find the right Cavalier for you. If you're interested in a specific Cavalier, or in being placed on our waiting list so that we can contact you when new dogs become available, you will first need to complete both a Preliminary Rescue Adoption Application and Reference (both personal and veterinarian) form.  

When we match you with a dog to adopt, we’ll first check your references.  If that goes well, someone will come to your home to meet with you and everyone else living there.  We will also check your home, garage, and yard to make sure you can provide a safe environment for a Cavalier.  When a dog comes in, first priority goes to those on our waiting list, so filling out all the paperwork will get you one step closer to adopting one of our Cavaliers.  We never know when we will get one in, but in 2013 over 40 Cavaliers were adopted through our organization.

Our adoption fees are based on the health and the age of a rescued Cavalier as well as medical costs incurred. Our rescue is operated 100% by volunteers; all donations go towards helping the Cavaliers in our rescue program.  The adoption fee needs to be paid when you pick-up your rescue Cavalier.  

The lowest cost of owning a pet is typically their adoption fee. Please consider the long term costs associated with owning a pet (food, ID tags, collars, leashes, veterinary care, annual vaccines, rabies vaccines, emergency medical costs, professional  dog trainers for behavioral issues, etc.) When you adopt a rescue dog, you are agreeing to care for the pet's well-being for the duration of his or her life.

Cavalier Rescue of Florida, Inc. is a 501C(3) registered nonprofit corporation.

Who We Are

We are Cavalier Rescue of Florida, Inc., invested in the well being of the Cavalier breed.  We will help ANYONE who needs to find their Cavalier a new loving, safe forever home for their family pet.  We know that this can be a very hard thing to do and we understand that and help you through the process. 

We will take Cavalier with behavior and medical issues as well.  We keep them in foster care and work with them on these issues prior to placing them in their new homes.

For the potential adopter we conduct reference checks, vet reference and home visits.  We select the new family with the same requirements as if it was our own dog we were looking for a new home for.  Adoptive parents must be Florida residents.

We have been helping Cavaliers for over a decade and placed over 80 dogs last year. 

If you are in need of finding your Cavalier a new home, please contact Linda at rehome@cavrescuefl.com. She will contact you and help you through the process. Thank you for considering us.
