Review for Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network, Romoland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I continue to be involved with the wonderful organization of Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network. We decided to become a foster home for rescued cairn terriers in 2010. Fostering is one of the most gratifying experiences. It is truely amazing the comprehensive vetting and care Col. Potter provides for each one of their rescues. Col. Potter will take a cairn that no other rescue wants because of health issues, and fully vets them and gives them the chance to be happy and healthy cairns in a loving forever home.

Review for Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network, Romoland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2008 our oldest cairn died of heart failure leaving our 6 yr. old cairn, Tigger, extremely lonely and our family grieving for the loss of our wonderful companion. We decided that our family needed another cairn and started searching cairn rescues. We found Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network during one of our web searches. After checking out their web-site and reading all of the information we could on Col. Potter, we applied to adopt one of their cairns. We were so totally impressed by how thorough they were. This group makes sure that every one of their cairns is placed in the proper home -- the right cairn for the right people. After the adoption of our wonderful Wiggles was complete, we decided that we would like to give back to this wonderful rescue organization as is is 100% volunteer and it takes a lot of time and energy to do all that they do. We became volunteers in Jan. of 2009 and help in different capacities. I can't say enought good things about this rescue organization. If anything needs to be done for any rescued cairn, then it is done, no matter how much money it costs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Being a volunteer and a foster parent, I've seen unhealthy an very scared cairns become the most amazing confident and healthy cairns who are placed with wonderful forever homes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There are no changes I would make. I would love to see more monetary donations so that we could see even more cairns rescued.

Role:  Volunteer & We help transport rescued cairns, foster,and help with fundraising. I also make sure that each foster has a handmade fleece blanket. We have "blanket aunties" that make blankets for each of our new rescues.
