Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network's New Leash on Life is happening Now!

Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network's New Leash on Life!
CLOSES: Sunday, April 11th, 2010 at 9:00 PM EDT

Announcing a new New Leash Fundraiser!!

Each day our intakes team gets leads on dogs that need rescue - some we can help, Some are already being helped and we can be thankful others are also there to help them, and some we cannot help. Some owners just need advice on how to care for a cairn - those independent minded little snots. But every now and again, our intakes team learns of dogs in need who need assistance VERY quickly - at that time they Spring Into Action - checking for foster homes, getting agreement from the Board of Directors that we have enough funds to care for them, finding veterinary care, notifying our Transport Team, and then negotiating to get the dogs into CPCRN itself. We are currently working on over 20 dogs who need our help just since this fundraiser began on March 25.

Your contributions to A New Leash on Life is what gives these dogs a chance at a better life. Help us help the cairns Weather the Storm - helping as many as we can get to a new and happy life. There are more at the door....

It is only with your help and the help of friends, family, co-workers and everyone else whose hearts are touched by the Cairn Spirit that we are able to help them lead happy and love filled lives. Cairns rescued from breeders however are the most expensive to bring back to health and require extended foster stays before they are ready to adopt. On average it costs $800 to rehabilitate them. So please dig deep and participate in this fundraiser. A $15 pledge CAN HELP. $15 is the cost of dinner out or a movie. Can you find it in your heart to go without just this once? If just 500 people pledge $15, we would be able to raise $7500. It's amazing what just a little from a lot of people can do.

As always, this installment of our popular "A New Leash On Life" is dedicated to raise funds to specifically help rescue cairns from puppy mills. Come join us in helping them obtain a new leash on life.

. . . where at least one out of every ten who participate can win a fabulous gift! Lets look at the 150 gifts we have to offer:

22" Widescreen LCD Monitor or a Aitpek Camcorder,, quilts and afghans, Denis Springer Cairn Statures, Hand hooked wall hangings made of spun cairn terrier coat, a hand turned mesquite bowl, and many books.
Then there are lovely prints, a Top of the Line Roomba, watches, purses, bird feeders, bed linens and many more prizes!

So, please join us at to participate in our New Leash fundraiser and invite your friends and family to do the same! We also have bonus prizes for those who participate. There is a $50 gift certificate for the person who brings in the highest number of different people to donate through referrals and one for the person who brings in the most money through referrals.

Thank you for being part of Col. Potter's family and supporting our efforts. We have been bringing in and adopting out the equivalent of more than one cairn every day this year and last - and we still have over 130 cairns in care right now. Your assistance is greatly appreciated by ALL of the cairns we have rescued this year, and all of us.
