Our primary form of contact with our applicants is email, so please be sure to check your mailbox frequently for responses/information from us regarding your application to adopt. PLEASE remember to check your spam/junk folder as well.
Please answer this "getting to know you" application with detailed answers. ONLY through your complete answers will we be better able to help you determine which Col. Potter Foster Dog would be best suited to you.
If you intend to use an electronic fence as your primary means of containment, we cannot accept your application.
We cannot guarantee any of our rescue dog’s behavior with children and cannot accept applications with children under 12 unless you already own or have owned a rescued dog during the child’s lifetime. We reserve the right to deny an application based on the age of the child under 12 at the time of ownership.

If you rent, provide the following information:
Where will the dog be kept during the day?
Often the exact age of rescue dogs is unknown.
Special Needs dogs could be of any age. They could be a dog with a vision or hearing loss, or have some other medical condition. They could be dogs in their twilight years who need a loving home for the rest of their lives.
Please note that your choices will be limited if you must concentrate on one small geographic area. You will have more options if you are willing and able to adopt from a larger geographic area. We will provide you with more information on our specific transport policies for our rescues, but in summary, you are responsible for transporting your future rescue dog to your home - both financially and logistically. We can help you plan this, and your rescue's foster family may be able to help with the transport, other volunteers may be able to help with the transport (note that we request 20 cents per mile fee for any volunteer who helps transport your dog to you - more on that later), but the final responsibility is yours. Flying your rescue dog is an option for some of our rescues but not all.
FOUR PERSONAL REFERENCES ARE REQUIRED in addition to your current veterinarian. Only one of these references may be a family member. All references must be 21 years of age or older. NOTE: If you do not provide 4 personal references, your application will be rejected.
If you have had pets in the past, list the information for the vet that cared for them. Also include an additional Veterinary reference if you have used your current Vet for fewer than 4 years.
If you do not currently have a vet, provide the information about the vet that you will be using when you adopt a dog.
Where did you hear about us?
Are you able and willing to make a Rescue Adoption donation if you adopt a rescue dog through Col. Potter Cairn Rescue?
PLEASE NOTE: At the time you adopt one of our rescue dogss, you will be asked to make a donation to CPCRN. This donation helps defray shelter fees and other costs paid to procure our Rescues, the cost of transporting them to our foster homes, the costs of providing them with food and appropriate veterinary care, including spay/neuter, immunizations, heartworm testing and prevention, and other medical and/or grooming needs as are required by the particular dogs in our program. As adoption donations do not constitute purchase monies paid for the Rescue, they are not refundable in the event that you decide to return the Rescue or for any other reason.
By submitting this application, you give us your permission to call all of your listed references, including your Veterinarian(s), to determine responsible pet ownership. If you have included a work telephone number for any of your references, you are stating that they may receive telephone calls at their place of employment.
Your signature(s) will be required on a formal Adoption Contract prior to adopting any rescue dog. You must also provide proof of being of legal age in your state to sign contracts. Photographic identification with your current address may be required prior to adoption.
I understand that CPCRN may, at its sole discretion, determine that a Cairn rescue will not be approved for adoption by me or my family.
Please make sure the application is complete and you have entered your e-mail address before pressing the "Submit" button below. Incomplete applications may be rejected or delayed.
PLEASE NOTE: Adopting one of CPCRN's rescue dogs is a multi-step process. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for details on how the adoption process works.
