One of the missions of our club is to find homes for Cairns in need. Some of these "rescue" Cairns have been found at local animal shelters and some have been given to us by their former owners because they can no longer care for the dog. The Cairn Terriers that are adoptable are microchipped, spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and have been examined by a veterinarian. If the dog has any known behavior or health problems, we will tell you before you adopt the dog. We ask that you sign a contract regarding the care of the Cairn Terrier.
We have two permanent policies on adoption: we require a securely fenced yard; and we will not adopt to a family with children under the age of 10 years. We have found that many Cairn Terriers do not have the tolerance to react appropriately to young children.
If you would like to be considered for a rescue Cairn, please fill out the Application for Adoption and submit it. Keep checking back for available rescues.
