Adoption Mix it Up





You know Col. Potter is a Cairn/Cairn-mix/Terrier rescue. 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 Cairn/Terrier to us.

Once cleaned up and cared for, it turns out NOT to be the case. Frequently it takes a very long time for non-Cairns/non-Terriers to get adopted through us; because people come to us specifically for them. Not that these little ones deserve anything less; as they still get the very best foster care, medical care and of course, LOVE. But they usually end up waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to come to us for a dog, stumble upon them, and apply to adopt them.

We are desperately in need of foster homes – so getting these babies adopted will open up that space for us to bring in Another Cairn/Cairn-mix/Terrier.

We are giving our DNA tested, that shows less than 50% Terrier in the mix, mixes, a better chance at forever – sooner rather than later.  (NOTE:  Yorkies and Silkies are not Terriers, they are in the Toy Group)

All our little “less than 50% Terrier in the mix-mixes” are being offered for a lowered adoption fee. For these babies Under FIVE YEARS OF AGE the adoption fee will be $100. For FIVE YEARS AND OLDER, the adoption fee will be $50**.

SO, if you are on the fence about a mix – that has had THE BEST CARE of their lives, and is ready to become your new family member … fill out that adoption application NOW.

If you already have an application in and approved, TELL YOUR MATCHMAKER you are interested in one of these little ones (below).
