Photo of the week Sept 27

Lauren Chartrand-Houlden sent in a photo of her “Charlie” playing on the beach. Charlie sent along a note to say he made a donation to help his name sake get better and to offset his medical bills. It is appreciated by one and all.

Hello from the beach! Yep this is me getting all sandy and ready for a large drink and a car ride. There is nothing better than a good day at the water’s edge, chasing birds, digging up something in the sand. Makes a guy feel alive! Just want to say “Hello” to everyone and to let you know that my namesake “Charlie” is still in Westie Rescue’s care as he has a little set back and got an infection in his impact area. Make a donation to day to keep him moving forward to a new life. – Charlie

Hello, I’m Chloe and this is me at the Outer Banks, NC on vacation with my new family. I am one year old and I came into Westie Rescue when my previous owners had a forced move to the West Coast for work. They were moving to a high rise condo so I decided I like No VA and wanted to stay, so Westie Rescue found my little butt a new family with little humans (two girls and a boy) to hang out with and sleep with. Each night I sleep with the middle daughter and she reads a book to me until I fall asleep. She reads adventure stories, so I dream about chasing rabbits and squirrels all night. This month we all went on vacation to the beach, but the noise of the ocean was too much for me so we wondered all over the Island on the back-bay nature trails. I like hunting the little rodents on those walks. After a few miles I get tired so we all go home for a snack, a gallon or two of water, and a good snooze. I love my new life, Thanks Westie Rescue for picking out just the right home for me. – Miss Chloe Adopted 4/2020

Lost our boy “Koda”

Every once in a while a Westie comes into our program who needs some extra special medical attention to get ready for a new life. Some Westies need allergies conditions identified and treatments started, some need surgery to repair broken parts, others like Koda, come to us with conditions so critical that they need multiple vet visits and specialized medical skills/testing to narrow down the issues to determine what the heck is going on.
