Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue Network - Great Lakes Region - Medina Pet Shelter

We are NOT A SHELTER with a single physical location. Instead, we are a national network of volunteers working to help re-home Cairns in need. We began as a small internet community of people trying to help one of their members through the heartache of losing a little Cairn named Col. Potter. In the weeks that followed that simple process of showing care and support, a national Cairn terrier rescue was born. It filled a void to serve a wonderful, randomly protected, and sometimes misunderstood breed. Cairns can have every kind of personality, from laid back to intensely lively; most fall somewhere in between. Our rescue attracts caring foster homes who will provide guidance and love; sometimes for the first time in a rescued Cairn's life. Our foster homes also provide an honest, realistic evaluation of each Cairn's personality, so an approved applicant can expect to be matched with a Cairn whose traits and behaviors fit their lifestyle. At present, Col. Potter has just under 200 foster homes all over the United States.

Adoption Process

You know Col. Potter is a Cairn/Cairn-mix rescue. Sadly, we cannot help every dog that needs saving. But in many cases when we see a shelter photo or stray photo or even at times, owner surrender photo, they sure look Cairn to us. Once cleaned up and cared for, it turns out NOT to be the case. Frequently it takes a very long time for non-Cairns to get adopted through us; because people come to us for CAIRNS. Not that these little ones deserve anything less; as they still get the very best foster care, medical care and of course, LOVE. But they usually end up waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to come to us for a dog, s tumble upon them, and apply to adopt them. We are desperately in need of foster homes – so getting these babies adopted will open up that space for us to bring in Another Cairn and/or Cairn-mix. SO – for this very limited time, we are giving our DNA tested, that showed no Cairn in the mix-mixes, a better chance at forever – sooner rather than later. For a limited time – all our little “no Cairn in the mix-mixes” are being offered for a lowered adoption fee. For these babies Under FIVE YEARS OF AGE the adoption fee will be $100. For FIVE YEARS AND OLDER, the adoption fee will Be $50**. SO, if you are on the fence about a mix – that has had THE BEST CARE of their lives, and is ready to become your new family member … fill out that adoption application NOW. If you already have an application in and approved, TELL YOUR MATCHMAKER you are interested in one of these little ones (below). PLEASE share this on your Facebook pages by going to the Col. Potter page and clicking SHARE, and other social media, if you would. **This does not include transport, and other fees associated with adoption. NOTE: WE HAVE SOME KIDS ON HERE THAT DO NOT YET HAVE A LINK ON OUR WEBSITE. But you can still apply to adopt them by just going to the application page (link above). DNA is listed on their write-ups - but also listed here for your convenience.
