How many times have we heard the story of a little Cairn doomed to death through no fault of their own? We've heard all the stories and have heard all the reasons, or should we say excuses. The fact still remains that without Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network little Cairns like our newest boy would have no other options, no place of safety and most importantly no future.

This particular little boy is very special in the fact that he so parallels the life of the person he was named for - mid age, and facing sudden death. His name is a donated name from our Name a Cairn Program. The difference is this little boy now has a future and the chance to live out his life to the fullest.

Please help me welcome JR. He was picked up as a stray and is estimated to be about 5 years old. He was deemed unadoptable because he has what was described as an umbilical hernia and his skin and hair show the effects of flea dermatitis and allergy. Yes, he would have been Put To Sleep for two simple and easily fixed medical issues. JR is named in memory of Danielle and George's son who died suddenly and unexpectedly and far too young.

Remember, it is only through your support that Col. Potter is able to rescue little Cairns like JR. Your support is greatly appreciated!
