Please check the areas in which you are interested:
: Foster homes are greatly needed and appreciated. Being a foster home can be as short as an over night that is needed during a transport, keeping a dog for a few days until other foster arrangements can be made, or until placement is made (long term). This is the most critical need in our rescue chain. We can only save as many Cairns as we have foster homes. All approved expenses are reimbursed. Foster Home
Cairn Rescue/Intakes: Volunteers who can I.D. Cairns in person or on websites, call shelters and surrendering owners or pull dogs from
shelters and take to a safe haven (a boarding facility or vets office)
are always needed. All approved expenses are reimbursed.
Transportation: Transporting dogs from shelters to foster homes, or from foster homes to forever homes. Please complete our Transport Volunteer Form if you can help.
Home Safety Inspections: A "Home Safety Inspection," or a "Home Visit" as the final
step in CPCRN's five-part adoption process. Since CPCRN is a national
Rescue program, much of our adoption process is handled through e-mail
and phone calls. The home visit is truly the only chance that we have
PRIOR to the placement of one of our Rescue dogs to ensure that the
Cairn will be in a safe and loving home. Volunteers are
needed to conduct home visits in your area as well as in an
administrative capacity helping to schedule visits around the country
and Canada. Training, forms and instructions are provided for all Home
Safety Inspection volunteers.
