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
Cassie (3rd January 2021):
Five year-old Cassie needed a new home as her owner was no longer able to give her the life she deserves. Fortunately there was someone waiting for a dog just like her. She went to her new family today.
Her owners are on the usual 4 weeks probation to make sure they are suitable ‘Parents’.
Good luck little Cassie.

Thirteen year old Torquil needed a new home due to his owner passing away. Helen our Trustee had the perfect couple on her wait list so we didn’t need to advertise him.
He has been in kennels since July when his owner was first taken ill along with Chloe also a Cairn. Sadly Chloe passed away last week due to illness so he’s had a bad time of it lately. He was very well looked after and much loved in the kennels but he really needed a home to call his own.
He was safely taken to his new home today in the countryside, following the recommended Covid guidelines. He will be on the usual one month trial. We wish him well in his new home. Be happy Torquil
The photographs on the right are of the kennel staff saying goodbye and Torquil meeting his new owners.

We advertised Millie on this page in Sept 2019 and it lead to her being adopted. She wasn't with our rescue, she was with the RSPCA in Chester Le Street. We quite often share Cairns from other rescue places to help them find a home. Thank you for the update Lisa, lovely to see her <3""Remember Millie who was needing a forever home in September 2019? Well she's found that and she's very happy. She's living with my in laws who have had 5 cairns throughout their married life.Their last dog had to be put to sleep unexpectedly at the age of 18.5 and we were all heartbroken. But a few months later I saw Millie on your FB page and they went straight to get her. "" ... See MoreSee Less
