C.A.R.E. is a breed rescue group in Alberta, Canada (formed in 1999) organized to ensure that Cavaliers in need of rehoming are carefully placed in screened, loving homes for the remainder of their natural lives.A Rescue Dog's Plea
C.A.R.E. will accept any and all surrendered Cavaliers from owners; as well as Cavaliers from humane societies, shelters, pounds, vet clinics, or individuals finding a stray. These Cavaliers will become the property of C.A.R.E. and will be spayed/neutered,vetted, and fostered until they can be adopted by an approved home.
Regardless of backgrounds, C.A.R.E. Cavaliers come with no registration papers; if health records are available they will be passed to the adoptive family where possible.
C.A.R.E. is committed to the privacy of both the party surrendering dogs and of the identity of adoptive families.
Rescue homes agree to reimburse C.A.R.E. for vetting costs incurred on the dog they are adopting.
C.A.R.E. very ~gratefully~ accepts donations from dog lovers and offers sincere "Thanks" to such generous hearts.
100% of donated moneys are put towards the continued high cost of rescue. Those costs include food, leashes & collars, grooming supplies, medicines, and vetting on dogs who may need extended foster care.
As a matter of policy:
-C.A.R.E. may pay applicable fees to shelters or pounds to effect a rescue, but will not buy dogs from individuals.
-All dogs processed through C.A.R.E. must be neutered/spayed prior to delivery to an adoptive home
-Each dog placed by C.A.R.E. requires a signed contract between C.A.R.E. and the adoptive owner

Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed.
I'd like to open my baggage lest I forget,
There is so much to carry -- so much to regret.
Hmm . . . Yes there it is, right on the top.
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss;
And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave,
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough--for they didn't want me.
Will you add to my baggage? Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things--and take me right back?
Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage, To never repack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage - Will you still want me?
