Cairn Rescue - Why We Work                                                Registered charity No 803599  

Here to Help "The Best Little Pal In The World"

The Cairn Terrier Relief Fund is a charity registered in the UK which rescues Cairn Terriers that have been abandoned, ill treated or neglected, or assists Cairns whose owners have become unable to look after them due to misfortune or disability.  Being totally voluntary we rely on your donations and bequests.   Please help us to continue our work.


The Main objects of the Fund are: -

·         To relieve the suffering and distress of Cairn Terriers in need of care and attention

·          To organise the rescue of any Cairn Terrier in distress and where necessary to provide boarding facilities and veterinary attention.

·         To make arrangements for the adoption and future responsibility for rescued Cairns.

·         To promote and encourage the better care of Cairn Terriers.

Our Patron

With the sad loss of our long term Patron, Cairn owner Wendy Richard MBE, Mr Paul O'Grady kindly took on the role as the our Patron.

Mr O'Grady is a supporter of all dogs in need of rescue, famously adopting his Cairn Terrier Olga on air.

Olga continues to help Mr O'Grady in his campaign to save abandoned dogs.
