Senior Sunday – The Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network

Recently, I read a few posts on Twitter by several rescue groups that were labeled Senior Sunday. It was after reading these Tweets that I decided to publish Senior Sunday posts myself. These posts, like the ones I read on Twitter, will highlight senior dogs that are available for adoption from various rescues.

My Senior Sunday posts will hopefully help find furever homes for these wonderful seniors from rescues around the U.S. and possibly other countries. I envision publishing Senior Sunday posts on one or more weekends each month.

To start the series, this post will focus on the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network from whom I adopted Divinity in May, 2009. Col. Potter rescued my little lady in November, 2008. I was told that three people had submitted paperwork to adopt her, however, all three changed their minds due to Divinity’s age.

Seniors have a lot to offer, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)

Note: Please share this post on your social media so that others can learn about these wonderful senior dogs. It’s the only way to spread the word about these seniors who need homes.

Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network.

  1. This is most wonderful and you know how greatly appreciated this is to all of us in Col. Potter. We take in so many senior kids as well as special needs kids. One of our babies in foster care celebrated his 15th birthday last week. THANK YOU SO MUCH for being Divinity’s Dad and for always think of these special kids.

    • Thank you, Danielle.
