Allegra & Edith find an Open Gate at CP!

Contributed by CP's VP of Intakes

Allegra, a 6 year old Red Wheaten Female


Edith, a 7 year old Wheaten Female


Col. Potter is like a safe haven, a protected harbor.  We open our gate, and we hear the pitter patter of little paws come through our door, the Cairns that have never known love, care, or freedom.  We help them all, no matter where they come from, no matter if they have physical injuries, no matter if they are just beginning their life or are entering the twilight years.  Our only restriction is having available Foster Homes, those safe havens in which these little Cairns can spend a little time while awaiting their Forever Home to find them.

Yesterday, two beautiful little girls found their way out of the approaching Winter cold and into our protected harbor.  Our gate was open, and their little paws happily came through the Col. Potter door!  Please help us welcome:

Allegra - F, 12 lbs., 6 years old, Red Wheaten
Edith - F, 13.5 lbs., 7 years old, Golden Wheaten

Their names are from the Longfellow poem, “The Children’s Hour”

“…I hear in the chamber above me
The patter of little feet,
The sound of a door that is opened,
And voices soft and sweet.
From my study I see in the lamplight,
Descending the broad hall stair,
Grave Alice, and laughing Allegra,
And Edith with golden hair. …”

Many thanks to Julie and Judith for guiding Allegra and Edith to the Col. Potter gate and through the door!  Welcome sweet girls!


Col. Potter Needs a Few More Protected Harbors for rescued Cairns waiting at the gate! 
Please Volunteer to Foster and help us offer safe haven to every Cairn in need!
