Visit our website.

Westie Rescue of Missouri, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 1999 to address the rescue needs of shelter dogs and puppy mill dogs.

In 2000, WRM was licensed as an animal shelter by the State of Missouri. In 2001, WRM received its 501(c)(3) tax exempt status from the IRS.

All WRM staff are volunteers. No salaries are paid. Volunteers donate their own money, as well as their time and their other resources, to rescue, rehabilitate, place and transport rescue dogs.

WRM has rescue volunteers in a number of different states and, in addition to our own rescue efforts, we also assist other regional rescue groups in their rescue, transport and placement of dogs.

WRM dogs can be found throughout the United States including California, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, South Dakota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Main, and New York.

WRM discourages anyone from purchasing a dog from a commercial breeder, pet store, puppy mill, or puppy mill auction. WRM staff have attended puppy mill auctions in 1999 and 2000, and their stories are contained on this site to educate the public about the nature of the mill industry in Missouri.
