PLEASE NOTE: At the time you adopt one of our rescue Cairns, 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. The requested adoption donation for young Cairns between the ages of 1 and 6 years is typically between $325.00 and $375.00, depending upon their age; for Cairns 6 years and over, it is typically $200.00. For Cairns in their golden years or which have long-term health issues, the requested adoption donation is usually reduced based on the age of the Cairn and/or the care and medications that the Cairn will require post-adoption. For young puppies under the age of 12 months, the requested adoption donation is typically $400.00, and if the puppy is not altered prior to placement (which would typically be the case if the puppy is under 6 months), we also require that the adopting family agree to a spay/neuter deposit. This deposit is FULLY refundable upon presentation and verification of a spay/neuter certificate. This is further explained in the rescue protocol for young puppies, which you will receive if you are applying for a pup under six months of age. Please verify the requested donation amount on any dog that you are considering for adoption. 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.
