Even though we have over 140 folks on the waiting list, approved to adopt, we have no one interested in these pups.

We have devised a system to allow folks NOT YET IN OUR APP PROCESS, to fill out an adoption application, even though our normal adoption application process is closed. 

If you are interested, please send an email to cpcrn@cairnrescue.com and we will provide you with the ability to fill out an application on line, ONLY FOR THESE PUPS (at this time).  Your application will be processed with the same high standard as all others to include reference checks, vet checks and an HSV (which may be virtual). 

Please know that theycannot be flown IN CABIN as they are too large to fit under an airline seat and we are not shipping cargo due to the lag time, flight insecurities and Covid situation.  The adopting home is responsible to provide/determine transport. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

AS OF 8AM ET, 12/16/2020 WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS.  We currently have no available dogs and any dogs that do become available will be matched with one of our 140 already approved applicants.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

We re-evaluated our situation and will try to reopen for new applications on 4/1/2021

We will announce when we are able to open adoption applications back up.

We are National

National, in this case, means we do NOT have a brick and mortar facility.  Instead our Board,

Officers, Volunteers and Foster Homes are located

all across the USA.

OUR COL. POTTER UMBRELLA HAS EXPANDED

Bob_hiding

You know Col. Potter has always been a Cairn/Cairn-mix/Terrier rescue. Well, we recently opened up our umbrella to include Australian Terriers, Border Terriers, Miniature Schnauzers, Norfolk Terriers, Norwich Terriers, Scottish Terriers and West Highland White Terriers; and mixes thereof, as we found ourselves bringing in these pure bred pups and mixes regularly.  So to try to help in saving as many little lives as possible we have become more diverse. Sadly, we cannot help every dog that needs saving, but in many cases when we see a shelter photo or stray photo or even at times, owner surrender photo, they sure look like one of our terrier breeds (or mixes) to us.  So our 'ever vigilant' Intakes Team will bring them in, whenever possible, and they will become Col. Potter Kids, just like only Cairns and Cairn mixes did in the past.

Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network (CPCRN) was formed for:

  • The charitable purpose of rescuing purebred Cairn Terriers, which are homeless or soon to be homeless
  • Without limitation those found in animal shelters or released by their families for a variety of reasons. Also those Cairn Terriers and Cairn Terrier mixes who have been used as breeding stock by so called puppy mills and backyard breeders.
  • Facilitate the pick up and transport of these dogs.
  • Arrange for spay/neuter and all appropriate veterinary care.
  • Rehabilitating these dogs in foster homes.
  • Seeking applications for and screening prospective adoptive homes
  • Education the public about responsible Cairn Terrier care and ownership.

Oh YES there are! We have our little furry ones that we call angels (sometimes), and we have the angels that truly watch over us from above.
