Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network
March 29, 2011
We bought a Cairn in a pet store many years ago. She was an awesome little dog and lived with us for almost 18 years. We got a couple of dogs from a shelter after she passed but we really wanted a Cairn again. I searched for many hours on the internet and finally found the very beginnings of Col. Potter. We started fostering shortly after 9/11 and we are thrilled with fostering. It's a way to 'make up' for having gotten a dog from a pet store which we now know is a terrible way to acquire a dog (ALWAYS go to a rescue or shelter). We've fostered over 60 Cairns since then. We've adopted two of our fosters. We enjoy having different dogs in our home and we think our dogs enjoy that as well. Every one brings something different to the relationship. We laugh, we cry, and we totally enjoy fostering and working to help Cairns in other ways as well. There are many different ways that people can help, join us and find your way. You'll be so glad you did!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Fostering, adopting, helping in many other ways over the internet.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have more volunteers to share the joy of helping Cairns in need. We always say "There are more at the door" and there are so if you want to volunteer, jump in - the water's fine!
