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.

Freddie and George (11th October 2019)
Freddie and George are nine year old castrated male Cairn Terriers who are in need of a new home through no fault of their own. They originally lived on a farm and were used for racing but as they have slowed down a bit racing was no longer possible.
A lovely lady has taken them on for a few weeks while we find them a good home. They are now house trained and in her words they are lovely dogs. They have always been together and we want a home that will take them both. They are currently in the Bromley area of Kent.
If you feel you could give this lovable pair the home they deserve please contact Chris Hewitt:
Telephone: 01689 828788 (not before 9am or after 9pm).

I have a question. Ringo has taken to running around on three legs rather a lot. Not permanently, but there must be a reason. At one stage I was giving him with Calpol because he seemed to be in pain but stopped that after a few days. Does anybody have any suggestions? Many thanks, in anticipation. ... See MoreSee Less

We have received a call for help in looking for a temporary foster home for a complete male Cairn Terrier called Scooby who is up to date with all vaccinations and belongs to a young lady who has just moved in with her partner Nick who lives in Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Devon (between Exeter and Plymouth) but Nick's land lady will not allow dogs in his flat. Obviously in this present climate arrangements will have to be made between yourself and Scooby’s owner about social distancing when meeting up and the best way to deal with this. We said we would put out an appeal for them. This will only be for a short time.
We would like to share the following information which we recently received from the Kennel Club regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19): The Comfort in Crisis Campaign: Leading animal organisations and charities have joined together to support both pets and their owners through the current current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
