*** Lucky Star : a rescue just for cavaliers!
North American members interested in homing a rescue dog or supporting (in any number of ways!), a special cavalier rescue group might like to know more about Lucky Star.
Lucky Star helps cavaliers that have come primarily from puppy mill situations. Many are obtained at auctions. Some have spent years siring or giving birth to litter after litter of puppies. Some are young, some are older. All deserve a much better life than that from which they have come. Maybe you can provide that special home... or help other dogs escape the nightmare of puppy mills. This can be as easy as signing up at iGive.com to select Lucky Star as your designated charity, which means they get a little percentage of revenue every time you buy stuff online from hundreds of merchants. :)

Here's a bit on their background, as explained by Lucky Star:
We are all familiar with the puppies in pet stores. Most of these puppies are sold to these stores through wholesalers who purchase their "stock" from people who mass-produce many different breeds of puppies for profit. In an effort to provide happier, healthier lives for the "breeders" who have spent all of theirs so far in filthy cages...and to help limit the chances of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies ending up in pet stores, a fund was created to purchase any breeding age CKCS that may come up in auction sales, which are held throughout the United States.
Our first "rescue" from such a sale was a female named Classic Star. After her purchase at an auction in Oklahoma a young boy came up to pet the dog. He asked what her name was and upon hearing the name Classic Star he said he thought her name should be "Lucky" because she was Lucky that we bought her! We loved the name and it stuck with both the doggie, Lucky, who now lives with a wonderful family in Missouri, and with this organization.
Lucky Star Cavalier Rescue has since rescued over 500 Cavaliers. We became incorporated on January 6, 2000, and were granted the IRS status of a nonprofit charitable organization - 501(C)(3). Our mission is to rescue and protect the breed which we all so dearly love. Donations are always welcomed and will be used to purchase Cavaliers and provide health care. The dogs are given the proper veterinary care and are then placed in foster homes to assess their individual personalities. Once we are certain we understand the needs of a particular dog, we then begin looking for a permanent home that is just right for him/her!
