Col. Potter’s Heartwarming Tails with

CP McQuinn enduring heartworm treatment

Col. Potter rescues Cairns in need from all types of situations, including owner surrenders, strays at a shelter, owner surrender to a shelter or a vet, impounds from hoarders, puppy mill survivors, and even Cairns found on Craigslist or other social media.  Sometimes the dogs are perfectly healthy, but very often there are underlying health issues that may or may not be known at the time of intake.  One such health problem is a diagnosis of being heartworm positive at any of the five possible stages.  A Cairn at a shelter with such a diagnosis is usually put to sleep because the cost of treatment and personnel to manage the critical care of the dog is not something they have the ability to offer.

An average of six to eight times each year, Col. Potter rescues just such a little Cairn, giving them the chance to overcome this dreadful condition and live a happy, healthy life.  The prescribed treatment program runs an average cost of $1,000 and is not for the faint of heart, requiring a dedicated Volunteer to be there for a three or four month duration, managing every aspect of every day for the dog undergoing treatment.

PupsEtc is pleased to offer Col. Potter a special Heartwarming Tails fundraiser to help offset the cost of our current stable of four Foster Cairns undergoing this expensive heartworm treatment.  Beginning Saturday, October 19th through Friday, November 1st, a full 20% of all proceeds taken in by PupsEtc during this two week period will be donated to Col. Potter.

NEW!  The Picaboo Square Bolster bed with Removable Center Pillow in honor of CP Picaboo, currently undergoing treatment for heartworm.
