Welcome!

Welcome to the official website of Cairn Rescue USA! We are an all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing purebred Cairn Terriers and mostly-Cairn mixes. We are incorporated in New York, but we rescue Cairns nationwide.

Our rescue Cairns come from animal shelters and humane societies; others are released to us by their owners due to changes in family circumstances or to the owners realizing that a Cairn is not a good match for them; still others come from puppy mills and backyard breeders where they have been used as breeding stock. Our rescue Cairns are spayed/neutered, tested and if necessary, treated, for heartworm and other parasites, and brought up-to-date on their inoculations prior to their placement in loving forever homes. To see a list of our available Cairns, please see Cairns For Adoption. To learn more about our work and how you too can make a difference, please watch this video:

We do not have a shelter or facility but depend instead on a wonderful network of foster homes throughout the United States who under our officers' guidance evaluate and rehabilitate our rescue Cairns until they are ready for placement. We are committed to rescuing as many Cairns as our funding and number of foster homes and volunteers will permit. Fostering a CRUSA dog is easy and very rewarding and no experience is necessary. We have a video below to give you a glimpse at what fostering a CRUSA dog is all about. To become a foster home and help us save more Cairns, please see our Foster page.

You can also help us by volunteering to run the administrative side of our operations or create crafts that we can sell online, volunteering to foster or transport a rescue Cairn, making a tax-deductible donation of cash or of Cairn items or other crafts that we can sell on our annual auction on Facebook to raise funds, doing your online shopping through our affiliate program links, participating in our annual CRUSA Benefit Auction held in November on Facebook, liking our Facebook Page, joining the CRUSA FacebookGroup, and following us on Twitter. Together we can make a difference!

Our Website

Please note that we are rebuilding our website because the code on which it was built is old and not stable. Until that project is completed, please visit our Facebook Page to view our dogs available for adoption. We apologize for the inconvenience. Also please note that due to Covid-19 and more people working from home, there are less Cairns available for adoption and more people seeking to adopt them. As a result, we now have wait lists of applicants. We still encourage you to apply, as you may be the right home for one or more of our Cairns. Our matching process is not first come, first served. Rather we seek to find the right applicant for our dogs' needs and the more flexible you are as to age, gender and behaviors that you will consider, the more likely that we can match you with a Cairn or Cairn mix in our program. Also please note that everyone running CRUSA is a volunteer and that as a result of Covid-19, we are extremely thin staffed and cannot answer every email we receive or call every applicant if we do not have a dog for them.
