Current Rescue Dogs

Please note that if there are no Cairns currently listed on this page, this doesn’t mean there aren’t any being rescued. Often dogs come in to us very fast and are re-homed immediately to people on our lists.
If we have no current dogs in rescue this page will display a selection of stories and pictures of Cairns who have recently been adopted.
We are also happy to display on this page Cairns who are in the care of other dog rescue organisations. If you wish to use this facility, please get in touch with our Facebook administrator here.

Cairns in Need of a New Home

News of recently rescued Cairns


Update on Poppy (5th July 2019) 

Poppy is no longer in need of a new home, she went to her new home yesterday.

Our Trustee John says: ‘She was a delight on the journey, not a peep out of her. Within minutes of arriving at her new home she was exploring the surroundings and playing with Toby, her new brother. Her new Mum was obviously very taken with her. Have a very long and happy life together’

Poppy (1st July 2019)

Poppy, a 20 month old spayed bitch needs a new home through no fault of her own.

Poppy is currently near Middlesbrough

She didn’t have the best start in life and will need a home where someone is around most of the time as she gets panicky if confined.

She walks well on the lead but tends to be nervous, particularly with lorries.  She’s not keen on the dark and would benefit from a walk last thing before bed.

She is fine with other dogs.

She is micro-chipped and up-to date with her vaccinations.

If you feel that you can give Poppy a home please contact our Trustee, John Francis, on 07766 168869 or email on “


Update on Robbie (23rd March 2019):

Robbie is now reserved.


Robbie (23rd March 2019):

Robbie a lovely natured 11 year old wheaten castrated male who needs a home that can make the rest of his life happy again.

Over the last few years he has lost both his owners and his dog companion, which has made him very sad and lonely. He loves his walks and will happily walk for an hour twice a day. While on his walks he will ignore other dogs but dislikes ducks as he has been attacked by them. He hasn’t lived with children or cats.

Robbie is in Kent. Vets fees will be paid for by CTRF.

If you feel you can give Robbie the loving home and secure home, he deserves, please contact our Trustee:

Chris Hewitt:
Telephone: 01689 828788 after 9am and before 9pm on
