Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: 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.

Programs: To rescue purebred cairn terriers and cairn terrier mixes which are homeless or soon-to-be-homeless and provide veterinary care, rehabilitation, fostering and adoption for these dogs as well as educating the public about responsible cairn terrier care and ownership.

We have never been prouder to be a part of anything in our lives, as we are of being a part of Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network. Most of us only want to make a difference in life, Col. Potter allows us to do that.

"Saving one dog won't change the world, but it WILL change the world for that one dog". By helping these dogs we are helping people that needs us to care for their Cairns that they can no longer keep. We help find companions for people that need a companion in their life - to help them with each day.
