Westie Rescue of CA and seven Western states, is a charitable and educational private independent not-for-profit organization. As our Mission Statement indicates, we are active in providing public breed education, rescue services, foster rehabilitation, animal training, Terrier knowledgeable, and often times, life-saving medical care, and placement in approved forever homes. Our rescues come from every walk of life; owner surrendered, shelter found, abused, abandoned, neglected, puppy mill raids, professional referrals or otherwise — any Westie-in-Need.
Our Founding Directors have more than 75+ years dedication to the breed they love. We are the oldest and largest independent Westie Rescue within the state and possibly the West Coast, garnering a stellar reputation along the way as relentless caretakers of the breed. We applaud our hundreds of dedicated volunteers, adopters and loving Westie owners who give back to the breed. Our breed gives such joy, laughter and often tears along the paw-path of life. Our organization has a long association with the WHWT Club of CA and WHWT Club of America.
