Mission Statement

Cairn Rescue USA is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming purebred Cairn Terriers and mostly-Cairn mixes. We are incorporated in New York, but we rescue Cairns nationwide.


If you are looking for a rewarding way to volunteer your time, share your love and home with an adorable Cairn, and help families find the right pet for them, then go to www.cairnrescueusa.com and fill out a foster home application today. Fostering is both challenging and rewarding when you see a Cairn in need of a new home find love and a new life in your care. Fostering involves homing a Cairn until a permanent home is located, includes vet visits, socializing dogs with humans and other pets and providing a loving environment in which a rescued Cairn can show it's wonderful personality. The smiles of families as they adopt their new dog is truly an irreplaceable feeling as you help a dog and family find each other and start a new life. Cairn Rescue USA will cover vet and grooming costs while in foster care.

We need foster homes in IL, IN, and WI. If the thought of giving up a Cairn to another family is too hard... please explore the wonderful Cairns we have up for adoption and help by freeing up a foster home to take in another Cairn in need!

Apply today and a volunteer will contact you to help you explore the possibility of rescuing a Cairn.
