General Adoption Rules: Our goal is to see all Westies in wonderful, loving homes.
We do not ship our dogs, and none of them are to be kept outdoors, though fenced yards are preferred. We do not adopt to homes with children under the age of 8 - UNLESS we have a kid-friendly Westie AND the adopting home has Westie/Terrier experience.
A nonrefundable donation of $250 - $450, unless otherwise stated in the dog’s bio, is required to support our program. We are an all volunteer organization and these donations cover the expenses for the dogs in our care. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible, and you will receive receipt for your taxes at the time of adoption.
In general, Westie Rescue dogs come to us from a difficult past; whether it be from puppy mills, shelters, or owners who did not understand the Westie personality/traits. Westie Rescue dogs often take time and patience to transition into a new home, and need additional training; including potty training. We want to make sure qualified applicants understand that life has not always been kind to the dogs who come to us, so they need time, love and patience to show them they are finally safe and in a permanent home.
