“In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.”
Unfortunately cavaliers can sometimes get lost. Sometimes they are found straying and if they have no microchip or identity tag their owners cannot be traced. This website helps reunite dogs and their owners: www.doglost.co.uk
Sometimes Cavaliers need a new home because they are no longer wanted or their owners are no longer able to keep them. Adopting an adult cavalier, especially one that has been a breeding dog in a puppy farm, can be incredibly rewarding but new owners need to be aware their new pet can sometimes come with health and behaviour problems that may demand a great deal of understanding and patience.
The Companion Cavalier Club does not run a rescue or rehoming service but those wanting to adopt an older cavalier or seeking help with finding a new home for their pet will find links to the regional cavalier rescue & welfare services here.

Two Stories About Rescue Dogs
There are many rescue centres that take in all breeds of dogs. They often have cavaliers that need re-homing. This thread on a pet Cavalier chat forum often has information about Cavaliers in need of a new home: CavalierTalk Breed Rescue
Most of the regional Cavalier clubs have their own rescue services. You can find a list of local contacts here: Regional Cavalier Rescue Centres

Good breeders will help and advise when Cavaliers they have produced need a new home, but many Cavaliers unfortunately come from puppy farms where the breeding dogs live miserable lives in cramped and squalid surroundings: Visit Puppy Love Campaigns
