Adoption Mix it Up





You know Col. Potter is a Cairn/Cairn-mix 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 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 to get adopted through us; because people come to us for CAIRNS. 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, s tumble 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 and/or Cairn-mix.

SO – until further notice, we are giving our DNA tested, that showed no Cairn in the mix,mixes, a better chance at forever – sooner rather than later.

All our little “no Cairn 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).

PLEASE share this on your Facebook pages by going to the Col. Potter page and clicking SHARE, and other social media, if you would.

**This does not include transport, and other fees associated with adoption.

NOTE:  WE MAY HAVE SOME KIDS ON HERE THAT DO NOT YET HAVE A LINK ON OUR WEBSITE.  But you can still apply to adopt them by just going to the application page (link above).

DNA is listed on their write-ups - but also listed here for your convenience.
