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.

**APPLICATIONS**

IMPORTANT:  If your desire is for a dog ranging from puppy to seven years without underlying health or training issues, your application will not be processed, as we do not have any dogs in that category that would be available.  We have over 150 already approved applications that are waiting for these age groups.  We are forced to accept applications only for our long term fosters, i.e. senior dogs, dogs with ongoing medical issues.  If you apply for one of these older dogs, we will process your application in a timely manner.

If you submit an application you will receive an EMAIL confirmation of that app almost immediately. If you do not receive that email, we are sorry to say but your app did not submit (for any number of reasons), and you will have to resubmit.  Our website and application (forms) all work the same way and an email confirmation copy is always provided.  Thank you so much for your patience.  Patience is the new normal.

 

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.

  • 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.
