“Friends “Fur”-ever”1

Success Stories

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


Lilly's Story

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!

Bonnie
Bonnie
I may not be white but I’m a Westie mix - referred to as Tartan Terrier (Westie/Scottie) and I sure need WiN’s help!
 
Found wondering the streets emaciated and eating garbage, a kind soul took me in to feed me but wasn’t financially able to address my veterinarian needs. So WiN to the rescue! Please WELCOME 6 year old Bonnie. 💕🐾
 
An update...It is with the deepest sadness that we must let you know that our little Westie/Scottie mix Bonnie has left us for Rainbow Bridge.  She came into our rescue and was doing so well. She loved her foster home where she had a warm bed, lots to eat and most importantly tons of love, but beautiful Bonnie could not hold on and Rainbow Bridge called her home.
Our love and thanks to everyone who helped our beautiful Bonnie-our rescue did all we could for her but it was not meant to be. Rest now Bonnie….

Selma
Selma

Welcome to sweet Selma...his 13-week-old pup has been diagnosed with a pretty serious heart murmur. Our love and thanks to the VEC (Veterinary Emergency Clinic) in Toronto for moving heaven and earth to get her in to see the cardiologist on Friday.
 

A murmur adds an extra sound to a heartbeat and can be serious… but we are pulling out all the stops for Selma…X-rays, an electrocardiogram (ECG) and possibly also an ultrasound (echocardiogram) so we can know exactly what we are dealing with. It is because of all our WiN folks who support our fundraising efforts and your amazing donations that allows us to help this girl!!! It "takes a village" and our WiN village is the BEST.

If Selma is only with us for a short time or hopefully a long time, she will be loved and get the best care…that is our promise. Welcome darling girl to Westies in Need.

An update...Selma's visit to the cardiologist was NOT what we hoped for. She will be off in the next few days to the OVC (Ontario Vet College) to see if she is a candidate for a balloon valvuloplasty that may give her a little more time with us.

It is with the greatest of sadness that we must tell you that our sweet 9 month old rescue, Cosette (previously Selma) passed away at 3:30 this morning. She came into our rescue with a very severe heart murmur, and we did everything we could to save her, but it was not meant to be. She had her appointment last Monday at the OVC in Guelph with the cardiologist and we were all set to schedule her for surgery to repair her heart, but Rainbow Bridge called her home. There are no words……

Welcome to WiN!

An update...MeiMei has found her perfect home! She asked her foster family if she could stay with them and they all thought it was a great idea.
