Westies in Need (WiN) works very hard to match our wonderful dogs with equally wonderful new families. Here are some of our success stories!
One of our little rescues was named Lilly - she was the worst case of skin problems we had ever seen when she arrived into our rescue program. The Pet Network saw her info on our website and asked if they could do a story on our Lilly and our rescue. Click here to watch the video of Lilly and her journey...they did a great job and we can't thank the Pet Network enough for supporting us! Lilly says THANKS too!
WELCOME 11 week old “Winston” who came into rescue with special needs.
Winston was born with a congenital eye disease. Winston has 50-60% vision now but over the next weeks/months he will become totally blind. He is just a darling boy and deserves the very best.
An update...Winston has been adopted by a family with experience in special needs, not only with blind dogs. This family adopted a Pug 7 years ago that was paralyzed and had a cart made for her to provide mobility. Puggle is now 11 years old and welcomes her Westie brother.
From all of us at WiN, we wish you many wonderful years Winston!!!!
