North Atlantic Westie Rescue

North Atlantic Westie Rescue, Inc., (NAWR) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt not-for-profit organization incorporated in Massachusetts. North Atlantic Westie Rescue’s mission is to find, rehabilitate, and place homeless West Highland White Terriers in permanent homes where they can be the best dog they can be. None of its volunteers receive a salary for their work, often contributing funds out of their own pocket to ensure the lives of unwanted Westies are saved. North Atlantic Westie Rescue’s mission will be accomplished when there are no more unwanted Westies in need of good homes. NAWR focuses on Westies and other small dogs older than age 7 or who have medical and/or behavioral conditions that make them difficult to place. NAWR operates one of the only hospice programs for Westies in the United States.
