View Full Version : Looking to rescue a CKC - Ireland

7th May 2011, 09:41 PM
Hi there, I am new to this board, and am hoping that someone out there can help. I am planning on getting a CKC for my family, and would like to rescue one. I was in Ashton pound on Thursday morning, and it broke my heart to see the dogs there. They were Jack Russel mix, but I am terrified of Jack Russels! I then went to Dogs Trust however, they did not have CKC. I know that when rescuing a dog, you cannot be specific, however I would like a CKC and am sure there have to be some that need to be rescued. Any advise that you can give me would be great - I have 3 children 10, 9, and 6 and we are all very excited at the prospect of a new member of the family! Thanks a million, TCF

Welcome to the board and how exciting!!

Well you are very lucky as there is a specific rescue for Cavaliers - Irish Cavalier Rescue


It was originally set up and run by the owner of the board, but has recently been taken over by a group of board members, who were already helping. I'm sure they will be along soon to say hello.

icon_welcome to the board. Delighted to hear that you are considering a cavalier for your family.
Just to echo what Nicki has replied to you, the new rescue group is set up and still settling into things. Any rescue dogs that become available for foster or adoption will be posted here on the board and on the facebook page also so please keep checking in with us. I'm sure it won't be too long before one comes along!
In the meantime, there is lots of information here on the board for introducing a pet into your home. Happy browsing :cffee:

Please consider an older cav if there is one available. So many older ones come in to rescue because their elederly owners either can't look after them anymore or pass away.
Don't discount one just because they are older than 6. They will still love you like a puppy.

Have to agree about considering an older Cavalier. We took on Kaley ,who is now 8, last year and she has brought us so much happiness. She's a really sprightly little lady who loves walks and cuddles. She's brought so much happiness into our home after losing Sonny.
