Cosmo's Story...
Cosmo is a 3 year old Cairn Terrier mix. He was found running loose in Austin. It was discovered that his original home had kept him tied up to a dog house for over a year with very little attention. He will definitely need regular grooming. Cosmo has become a favorite of shelter volunteers because of his feisty, energetic personality. He is a true character. Cosmo does like to be the boss when it comes to other dogs, particularly large breeds. In the past few months, he has blossomed, becoming more affectionate and personable. He would do best with an experienced owner and no small children. Potential adopters should plan on basic obedience training and some housetraining. A fenced in yard is required for this little dynamo. Her adoption fee is $125. We utilize a short adoption application form to assess compatibility between dogs and their prospective homes. This form is a simple one-sided Microsoft Word document and it can be e-mailed to you upon request. If you would like to receive the form via e-mail, or if you have any other questions, please send us an e-mail message.

Our Shelter is open to the public for animal viewing on Sundays from 2PM to 4PM and on Tuesdays from 4:30PM to 6PM. The Shelter building is located at 101 22nd Street SE in Austin, Minnesota. This is at the farthest east point of Oakland Avenue East in Austin, just to the east of Charter Communications.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cosmo, a Austin Cairn Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cairn Terrier for sale in Austin, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Austin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Austin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cairn Terrier breeders who help with Cairn Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
