#GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday
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
 
For those of you who don't know, #GivingTuesday is a global effort where we, along with many other groups look to raise funds and awareness of our programs. If you can contribute, any and all contributions welcome. Facebook is matching funds for early contributions. . .

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.

Congratulations to Daisy!

Congratulations to Daisy! Congratulations to our sweet Daisy on her adoption! We are so thankful for folks who open their hearts to senior pups. This former mill momma has really come out of her shell in foster care and is so ready for the love and attention from her forever family. Please join us in wishing them many happy years together.

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 http://CavalierAlliance.org/donate or send via paypal (friends and family option) to CavalierHelp@CavalierAlliance.org. 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 Facebook.com/CavalierAllianceFundraising. 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.

Poppy’s Cardiology Recheck

Poppy’s Cardiology Recheck Poppy Outside Easter   Poppy’s cardiology recheck this week was great! There were no signs of heart failure and though her heart is still a bit enlarged (typical at this point), the team is hopeful it will continue to resolve (remodel). We will know more in another 8 -10 weeks. Best news of all? She's cleared for normal puppy activities and play. 

Dismissal

We've had several requests for us to post verification the lawsuit brought against us by a local breeder has ended.  It's important to note that this was not a settlement – the breeder’s lawsuit was dismissed and a judgment entered against her.
We hope that this is the end of this and that we can all get back to spending our time on caring for these beautiful cavaliers, who need and deserve our love and attention.
