All of our rescues are fostered in private homes throughout California where they receive medical care and rehabilitation. Not all of our rescues are posted until they are ready for adoption as all rescues are evaluated by their foster home over a 3 - 4 week period or sometimes longer. When we place a rescue, we try to do everything we can to make this transition their very last.
Our website & Petfinder are constantly being updated so you can be assured that you are viewing dogs that are adoptable. Please note, we do NOT charge an application fee.
Our sweet Thor was diagnosed with Westie Lung Disease (Pulmonary Fibrosis). For that reason, treatment will focus on support and controlling the symptoms to enhance the quality of life. Even with this diagnosis, his lung capacity is currently at 99% which is excellent. Thor is now a member of our Forever Foster program and he is looking for his forever foster home.
It is important to say that Thor is a very happy little guy. He loves having his favorite ball tossed and he happily fetches and drops it at your feet for more. He is truly the perfect housemate, he has manners, he's quiet and so very grateful for being rescued from a high kill shelter last year. He was in terrible shape, matted to the skin but a few months in foster care turned this little diamond in the rough into quite a gem. Thor will do best with a family that enjoys dog parks or playing in the back yard. He loves to cuddle, loves to eat (its important to keep him trim) and is looking for someone to love him for the cutie pie that he is. He is both crate trained and big bed trained and sleeps soundly through the night. Thor so deserves all the love and attention that he did not get the first few years of his life.
My name is Jazzie and I am 7 years old. I landed with WROC because my owner did not want to take care of me anymore. You see, I have a condition called Addison's. This means my adrenal glands are not producing enough corticosteroids. These glands have a role in regulating the way my body controls levels of water, sugar and salt. My vet is developing a treatment where I am treated with a monthly shot and meds but other than that, I am just a normal dog.
I am having a great time in foster care. We go on long walks, eat delicious food, and get lots of pets. I feel like I have a new lease on life and I am looking for a special family to take care of special little me.
I will be ready for you in no time! "Come on, babe, Why don't we paint the town? And all that Jazz.......ie"
I am an adorable 6 year old, 14 pound, spayed female Westie. My shots are current and I have sparkly clean teeth from my recent dental cleaning.
My life has been hard. My original owner left me outside in a pen and did not care whether it was too hot or too cold. I am a strong girl, but this just about broke my spirit. One day, two really nice guys came for me and life with them was much better. But their circumstances changed and I had to move again, this time to WROC. I like the other Westies here, I enjoy the walks in the park, and I love my food and Highlander Hash!
I am still shy and will need a gentle, caring, and patient family. My fondest wish, and I am wishing really hard, is to have my own home where I can feel happy and safe. XOXO Sofie
Rex was turned in by an owner who said that "he got bad really fast". Clearly, poor Rex was the victim of years of neglect. He lost a lot of weight, his entire body was covered with sores and scabs, his eyes and ears were infected, his thyroid was very low, and he was battling an internal infection. We immediately started our skin regime of daily soft scrub medicated baths and vet prescribed medicine.
We are proud of his progress and he is on the road to recovery. He will be with us for a while longer, but in the meantime, we are looking for a special family...one who will give this Westie boy all the love and care that he so deserves. Rex is happy again, he plays with his ball and soft squeaky toys, and he is playing well with others. Rex is 21 pounds, neutered, and current on all his shots. Is there a place in your heart for him?

Meet Maddy, an incredibly fun Westie girl! Maddy was loved deeply and very well taken care of but unfortunately her owner's medical needs prevented Maddy from getting the attention she deserves. So they did the most loving thing by bringing her to WROC.
Maddy loves toys and loves chasing balls. She is sweet, tenacious, and an all around beautiful girl. She loves the other Westies and settled in her foster home immediately. Maddy is spayed, current on her shots and microchipped.
