About

The Cavalier Alliance for Rescue, Research & Education was formed in 2014 to focus on senior and special-needs Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. During early 2015, our corporate papers were filed and we received 501c3 non-profit status. The Cavalier Alliance operates with a small board including two of our founders:  Tonya Andersen and Ann Blanchard.  We also have an active Board of Advisors, including many veterinary professionals, who provide guidance throughout the year.  Our work is done through a network of committed volunteers across the country. Primary volunteer functions include fostering, transport, fundraising, and outreach. ** Note:  We do not have a primary shelter or kennel location.  Our pups are in foster care and meetings are only scheduled with adopters after an application is completed and if the family is a good match for the dog.   To learn more about our programs, please  look through the pages on this site and email us at cavalierhelp (at) cavalieralliance.org or call 978-254-1005. We are committed to transparency and proud to have received Gold Status from the Guidestar Exchange.  Molly First Grant
