In 2020 Westie Rescue Mid-Atlantic Region will reach a mile stone as the volunteers rescued and re-homed their 1,200th Westie. Most of the Westies we get in are happy healthy pets that find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, due to death of the owners, changes in living arrangements, and military forced transfers. Others need lots of medical assistance so they can be ready for their second chance at a great new life.
Each year for the past 26 years , owners, state, county, and local municipal animal control authorities, reach out to Westie Rescue regarding dogs that are unwanted or lost. Westie Rescue volunteers act quickly to pick up the animal in question, drive them directly to a veterinarian hospital to ensure that the Westie in question receives a medical evaluation, rabies shots, and other medical care as required by the experienced vets we use.
We need your financial help to pay off our vet bills each month. Bills that can be as high as $5-10,000, due to the condition these little ones find themselves when they come into our program. Many have not had vet care in years and the older ones need much much more care than the younger Westies to get healthy once again. It is wonderful to see that bounce and happy tail wags as they regain their strength and energy levels. Toys and squirrels become of interest once again. Happy little bodies ready for that second chance at a great new life!
Remember Westie Rescue when you write your bills this month because without your donation, we cannot help these little ones……
