Cavaliers in Need

Cavaliers in Need, located in Northern Ireland, rescue and rehome Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs. The foster-based rescue received £10,000 towards veterinary bills in June 2022.

The grant helped dogs like Sully, Summer and Bonnie, who all needed medical attention when the rescue took them in.

 

Three pics of Sully a ruby Cavalier, one on the left he's a puppy and wearing a dark harness. Middle pic no harness lying on bed with pink sheet and right pic he's on a beach with magenta harness.

Sully arrived as a six-week-old pup with a heart problem. He had stenosis and needed a life-saving operation. Unfortunately, due to complications, he will always need medication, but he is now a happy one-year-old in foster care.

 

 

 

Two pics of summer, a light coloured Cavalier.

Summer, who came from a puppy farm at four months, was diagnosed with PDA, which is a life-limiting condition if not treated. She received surgery and will now go on to have a full life with her adoptive family.

 

 

 

Bonnie came from a breeder; she was lethargic, dehydrated and not eating. She was admitted to a veterinary hospital and put on a drip, and they discovered she was pregnant with a large litter. She had a c-section and delivered nine pups. Sadly two didn’t make it, but the remaining seven and mum are all happily rehomed; Bonnie travels the UK in a camper van with her mum and dad.
