WRAPPING UP 2010 AND WHAT A START TO 2011!!

Written by CP's VP of Intakes

The final figures have been tallied and totalled for CP 2010 Intakes .... and DRUM ROLL .... Thanks to Col. Potter and everyone who makes Col. Potter possible ... 385 Cairns were rescued and welcomed into the loving arms of Col. Potter in 2010!!! This is down slightly from both 2008 and 2009 by about 9%. Col. Potter ended 2010 with a GRAND TOTAL SINCE INCEPTION of 2,999 Cairns rescued.

2011 Intakes started off the year yesterday with the arrival of Ticonderoga who just happens to be NUMBER 3000!!! This is certainly quite an accomplishment and one everyone associated with Col. Potter can certainly be proud of!

We all know 2010 was a tough year on CP resources -- financially, shortage of foster homes, needing more volunteers to process the number of Cairns needing help, etc. All indications are 2011 will be much the same. We had to cut back on the number of Cairns we were able to help in 2010. I'm really hoping we won't have to make any further cuts in 2011.

I would like to say THANK YOU for your past help and ask you once again to open up your hearts, homes, wallets and precious time to help these little furkids that can't help themselves. Start a coin collection can, or pack a lunch and see how quickly the money adds up to donate and help the Cairns. Consider becoming a foster home, what's one more food bowl on the counter or crate on the floor? Get involved -- join a CP team and become an active volunteer -- there's something for every one! The Cairns need us now more than ever ...
