My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network, Romoland, CA, USA
My name is Linda Bagley and I am a volunteer with Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue, www.cairnrescue.com .
I came across your website and saw your page on helping our rescue.
As part of the Promotions team we are very open to any avenue that we can find to raise money while raising awareness to adopt and not to shop. Our organization places approximately 300 - 400 cairn terriers in forever homes every year. We turn no dog away. As we are a breed specific rescue our dogs are cairn terrier or cairn terrier mixes.
When I say we turn no dog away that means even if they have medical conditions. Our objective is to raise money to rescue cairns and get them the medical treatment that they need, be it basic or emergency surgeries. This is a common occurrence for us as 1/2 the dogs we take in are from puppymills and kill shelters, the other half are owner surrenders.

Before and after pictures of many of the dogs that we have rescued
We are approximately 800 strong, everyone playing an intricate part, be it foster home, blanket auntie, transports, our list of volunteers sometimes do double duty. We have no building, no kennels, just people working out of their homes all across the US and parts of Canada communicating over the internet.
We are looking forward to hearing from you as to what kind of a partnership we can form to raise money. I never want to think we will ever have to turn a dog away, not during my lifetime. Thanks so much for this opportunity. If I haven't overwhelmed you enough here are some stories from families that have adopted our rescues, http://www.cairnrescue.com/adoption/stories.php
To us it doesn't make sense to rescue a dog and keep it locked in a kennel. Putting dogs in foster homes so that they can learn what a loving home is is the only answer.
Saving just one dog won't change the world, but it surely will change the world for that one dog.
