Westies in Need - WiN


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!

Westies in Need (WiN) works very hard to match our wonderful dogs with equally wonderful new families. Here are some of our success stories!

Sophie... is a lovely Westie mix from a puppy mill seizure of 220 dogs. This darling little girl is only 1 1/2 years old and is now spayed and up to date on her shots.

Sophie is fostering in the Cornwall area with a great family and their Westie and she is learning that it is not such a scary outside world after all.

Welcome Sophie to Westies in Need!!!!
Dodi...is a tiny little girl who was a breeder release.
She is such a darling girl, about 4-5 years old and was used for breeding, but that is all behind her now.
