Don't all cavaliers deserve to sleep in a comfy bed? On this #GivingTuesday, help us make that a reality for the future cavaliers who come our way. We've seen so many seniors who just need basic care, dentals and altering, and new families to treasure them

Saying goodbye to Shea. . .

Saying goodbye to Shea. . . It's with a very heavy heart that we let you all know our sweet, spunky, senior girl, Shea, lost her battle with Cushings and sl eep seizures last week. Her vet team thought the seizures were indicative of a brain tumor. It's not the outcome we had hoped for her, but she did have several great weeks of tail-wagging play and snuggles with her foster mom and her resident cavaliers.

Kirby Fundraising 2017
Kirby is a 5-month old puppy who has Severe Pulmonic Stenosis. As a result of this congenital condition, his pulmonary valve is narrowed and restricting blood flow in his heart. Kirby currently has a grade 5 heart murmur and extremely high pressures in his heart. Since his case is severe, Kirby needs a balloon valvuloplasty to allow him a chance at a normal life. The estimated cost for his surgery is $3200-$4500, and he will need at least two follow-up cardiac workups (consult, echocardiogram, and CBC at $750 each).
We are working to get Kirby scheduled into surgery, as the sooner this procedure is done, the less damage there is to his heart. If you can help us by contributing to his surgical fund, please visit or send via paypal (friends and family option) to If you would like to get more involved in fundraising for Kirby, or any of the pups in our program, pleasegive our office a call at 978-254-1005. There are many ways to help including Paint Nights, other local fundraisers, auction donations, iGive for shopping, to name a few. Auction details will be posted on No contribution is too small and we greatly appreciate all of your support!  

Hello Rocky!

Hello Rocky! Rocky is resting up and looking forward to spending time with his forever family! This sweet mill survivor has had a dental, lost 5 teeth, has been neutered, and learned the basics of being a much-loved pet. 😉 He does have an asymptomatic grade 4-5 heart murmur that will need monitored in the years ahead. Rocky is experiencing all the firsts: first bath, first walk on grass, first car ride, first nap on the couch and learning quickly. He's so grateful for attention and we believe he will transition well from foster care to forever home. * Rocky has been matched to a potential family so we are just accepting back-up applications at this time.
