Co-Director of Rescue/Intakes

Julie Greystone
Co-Director of Rescue/Intakes

Julie first came to the Col. Potter table in 2010 shortly after the passing of her beloved Cairn Terrier, Ozzie. The loss of Ozzie left such a gap that Julie immediately went searching for another heart-dog companion. She soon found Col. Potter Cairn Rescue, where she quickly learned that “one Cairn Terrier just necessarily leads to another,” and she joined the Rescue/Intakes Team in its quest to save as many wee terriers as possible. Thanks to the seemingly unlimited patience and support of her spouse, Judith, Julie has worked for over 10 years to bring the little dudes and dudettes into safe harbor with Col. Potter.  And her greatest reward has been a consistent series of foster failures over the years. Julie and Judith now reside in PA with their current pack of fabulous flunkies, Edith Anne, Tallulah Bean and Mustang Sally.  Julie was welcomed into the role of Co-Director of Rescue/Intakes on May 1, 2021.

Director of Communications

Denise Hoffman
Director of Communications

Denise Hoffman joined Col. Potter in 2006 and is the Director of Communications.  She found Col. Potter (and rescue) while looking for a second Cairn terrier. Her daughter who was 13 at the time, googled Cairn terriers and opened up an entire new world to her and her family! They first adopted Benny (CPs Martin), now at the Rainbow Bridge, then flunked with her foster dog Heather. Her third CP kid is Spud (now at the Bridge), a total goof ball who she also flunked fostering with and made them laugh every day. Her non CP kid is Lexi, a Cairn-Westie mix who she adopted as a puppy and is now at the Bridge too.  With Denise in this photo are Spud and Heather.  Denise and her family live in Michigan.

Potter shortly after adopting a beautiful former breeding momma in 2009.  She volunteered on the Rescue/Intakes Team as a searcher and soon expanded to work as an Intakes Coordinator.   Sheri and her husband Mike live in IL, and their daughters have enjoyed quality time while helping transport Col. Potter dogs around the mid west. The girls love to help and have enjoyed meeting so many other CP volunteers. The entire family has welcomed and loved many fosters over the years.  Currently, the family dogs include three Col. Potter foster flunks:  Ronnie, Bubba and Tigger.

Director of Transports

Kathleen Logan
Director of Transports

Kathleen Logan, Director of Transports, looked forward to the day she could retire and finally get a dog.  That happened in 2010.  A search online for “rescue dog” found Col. Potter and Virgil, a senior boy who was her heart dog.  She began actively volunteering in August 2014 when she joined the Tags team.  A year later she started sewing belly bands and girl pants for our fosters in need.  She joined the Transports team in January 2017 as a coordinator and then added records keeper of our volunteer drivers.  In addition to missing Virgil, she has had to say goodbye to Corkie and Tappan Zee.  CP's Fezzy is her current Cairn love.

Susan

Director of Volunteer Services

Susan Mower
Director of Volunteer Services

Susan learned about rescue first hand when she had to surrender her beloved Welsh terrier, Pi, many years ago. Volunteering at a local shelter, her goal became to understand dog behavior and specifically terrier behavior so Pi's re-homing would finally make sense and never happen again. During her journey, she met a neighbor's neglected Cairn terrier, Myra, who became her best friend and teacher and eventually led them both to Cairn Rescue and Col. Potter. The rest, as they say, is history.  Susan is the Director of Volunteer Services in CP and lives in New England with several Col. Potter Cairns.  Susan is pictured with two former fosters, Mother and daughter, who were tearfully surrendered by their Mom to Cairn Rescue. They have found a loving forever home proving that life truly is just a circle - what goes around, comes around.
