Hi!  My name is RUSTY and this is my story.  I am a very enthusiastic boy and love to chase almost anything – flies, lizards and even a flashlight beam – no I am not a cat!!!
​
I have a couple of little “quirks,” like in the early morning when I wake up I can be vocal.  After breakfast though, I quiet right down.  Later in the evening I appreciate my quiet time and tend to find a safe place to relax. Sometimes I get excited when I am disturbed but trust me it is only because I was startled.  I like things “on my terms” and I’m happy to crawl up into your lap and snuggle.  I look forward to sharing my life with you.

  • I definitely need a fenced-in yard to run around in.
  • Long walks are a must since I love to be active.
  • An experienced dog owner should be able to understand and deal with my little quirks.
  • I’m a nine-year old Ruby male being fostered near Tampa and my adoption fee is $300.

About Cavalier Rescue of Florida

About Our Rescue Group...

Cavalier Rescue of Florida is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) rescue, organized to benefit Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in need. First as Mid-Florida Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Rescue (MFCKCSC Rescue), and now as Cavalier Rescue of Florida, Inc. (CRF) we have been saving Cavaliers since 2000, placing hundreds of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a foster based rescue throughout the state of Florida.

Our Adoption Process...

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. You can request these forms from Trisha Bowley at Trisha.Bowley@CavRescueFl.com.

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 2015 over 73 Cavaliers were adopted through our organization. If you have already applied, and we post a new dog(s) that you are interested in, please send an e-mail of interest for that Cavalier to Trisha.Bowley@CavRescueFl.com.

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.
