Westie Rescue USA is a national clearinghouse for reputable organizations serving West Highland White Terriers in need all across America. This website is supported by Westie Rescue of the Mid-Atlantic States, Inc., a nonprofit organization.
All across the United States, independent Westie Rescue organizations and their volunteers are helping to identify Westies at risk of homelessness or death, fostering them, and placing them into permanent “forever” homes. Our dogs come from lots of places. Some are surrendered to rescue from a private home. Other rescues are dedicated to rescuing Westies from “puppy mills,” where unprincipled business owners breed dogs for profit at a massive scale without regard to the dogs in “their care.” We believe all dogs should be held harmless for their circumstance. Through collaboration with other organizations, donations from private individuals and foundations, and the tireless work of volunteers, hundreds of Westies and other small dogs are saved each year from indignity, pain, and needless death.
Westie Rescue organizations across America are in need of the skills, talents, and resources of private individuals to do their important work. From locating at-risk dogs in kill shelters and providing fostering or adopting to helping your local Westie Rescue with transport, social media, or fundraising, there are many thing you can do to support the rescue of homeless Westies. Here are just three ways you can help:
- Volunteer. Share your skills with Westie Rescue USA, Westie Rescue of the Mid-Atlantic States, or your local Westie Rescue.
- Adopt. Consider adopting a rescued Westie from a local Westie Rescue organization.
- Donate. Make a financial contribution to Westie Rescue USA or designated local Westie Rescue of your choice.
