CPCRN, founded in February 2001, rescues purebred Cairn Terriers and Cairn Terrier mixes which are homeless or soon-to-be-homeless, including, without limitation, those found in animal shelters or similar facilities and those released by their owners due to change in family circumstances or otherwise. We also rescue purebred Cairns which are being used as breeding stock by so-called puppy mills and backyard breeders, including those disposed of in puppy mill auctions. We arrange for the pick-up and transport of our rescue Cairns; arrange for their spay/neuter as well as for the provision of other appropriate veterinary care for them; rehabilitate and foster them; seek applications for and screen permanent homes for them; and adopt them to loving forever homes. We also educate the public about responsible Cairn Terrier ownership and care.

CPCRN is comprised entirely of volunteers that assist in the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of Cairns throughout the United States. CPCRN maintains a website at http://www.CairnRescue.com where the public can report a Cairn in need, apply to foster or adopt a rescue Cairn and obtain information on responsible Cairn ownership and care.

Two years later I adopted Connor, ... more »
I accidently found Col. Potter when I was considering adding a 2nd Cairn to my home, and decided to foster. The process was not hard, and the support I recieved as a 'foster parent' is unbelievable. I have not had more than a half dozen pups go thru my home, but each one was special in one way or ... more »
