Adopting a Cavalier

Our current adoptables can be found – Here

Dog Adoption Process

  • Application Form completed, including any questions you have;
  • Cavalier Rescue reviews and contacts successful applicants within approx. 3 business days;
  • Meet and Greet with the dog/puppy is arranged at a convenient time for both the Cavalier Rescue/foster carer and potential adopter, including introductions to existing animals and all members of the potential home
  • Home and Yard check is arranged between Cavalier Rescue representative and potential adopter. The dog/puppy comes along to this and if there are no issues, the dog/puppy is able to stay at the home from this time. Adoption Agreement is signed, Change of Ownership form is completed and Adoption Fee is paid on the day.
  • Adoption Pack is mailed after the 14 day trial period.

Dog Adoption Policy

Please note: completing an adoption form does not guarantee an adoption takes place. Cavalier Rescue reserves the right to choose the most suitable applicant and reject those deemed unsuitable. Occasionally, there can be multiple applications for the one animal and there is no ‘First In – Best Dressed’ – the multiple applications are vetted for the most suitable.

We do our utmost to contact all applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, to inform them of the result but as we are staffed by volunteers, most of whom work full time, occasionally responses are overlooked and we apologise in advance if this occurs.

Cavalier Rescue does not adopt to those who are not permanent residents of Australia.
