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.

News of recently rescued Cairns


Mia went to her new home yesterday. This was following a series of unfortunate incidents, none of which were her doing. Mia decided that enough was enough and she wanted to move to a home where her many fine attributes would be appreciated. Time to call the CTRF she thought.

As usual the CTRF sprung into action and found her what they hope will be her ideal home.

Time will tell and her new family have 4 weeks to make the requisite impression on her.

“Scruffy! What a name! I’m not scruffy, as you can see from my picture.

Anyway, my Dad hasn’t been very well so my hooman sister has been looking after me.

I didn’t like it much there as a pesky Jack Russell wouldn’t leave me alone and being 11 years old I like a bit of peace sometimes.

Anyway, after a call to the Cairn Rescue I’m now with my new Mum who fell in love with me straight away.

I think I’ll adopt her as she seems really nice and plays ball with me.

There’s some nonsense about 4 weeks but I don’t think I’ll need that long.

Wish my new Mum luck, I don’t need it – I’m sorted.”

Update on Albert (16th September 2021):

Here is an update from Albert himself.  As can be seen, he has definitely got his paws under the table.

“Hello again, you may remember that I recently had four weeks to assess whether the level of pampering and sheer adoration in my new home would meet my exacting standards. 

I’m pleased to report that the CTRF understood my varied requirements perfectly and I am staying where I am. 

Don’t tell my Mum but I’ve got her just where I want her. 

Love and cuddles to you all. 

Albert Cairn Esq.”  


Albert (22nd August 2021):

Hello everybody, I’m Albert and I’m 5 years old. I needed a new family to pander to my every need. Well, the good news is that the CTRF came to my aid.

I had a little ride in a Mo Car to a house which I have inspected thoroughly and seems to meet my exacting standards.

Fortunately I’m irresistible and here I am waiting for another treat. I’ve been told that I have 4 weeks to make up my mind. Watch this space.
