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 2 - 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 groomer Mr. Pet did a fabulous job on Rex. Our boy is beautiful again.
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 skin was badly infected and he had to deal with other neglect issues such as infections. We immediately started our skin regime of daily soft scrub medicated baths and vet prescribed medicine and low and behold, we have a gorgeous boy.
Rex will always need frequent baths and skin exfoliation. 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. Rex is 21 pounds, neutered, and current on all his shots.
Is there a place in your heart for him?
My name is Cookie and I am 8-9 years old. I had an owner since I was a puppy, but after spending my whole life with them, they found out I was hypothyroid so off to the pound I went. I was very sad and so confused but then WROC rescued me. All I need is a very inexpensive pill twice a day. I've had my thyroid retested several times since I came here so I am now on the right dose and feeling so much better!
I'm on a diet and I've already lost a pound! I've had my teeth cleaned, blood work done, up to date on shots and I am spayed and microchipped.
I am a little shy at first but I am as sweet as a sugar cookie! And I have the most enchanting eyes if I do say myself. The shelter cut me real short but my coat will fill out. I hope to have my very own home soon. I truly am a love bug. Love Cookie
My name is Brody. I am 3 years old, 14 pounds and neutered. I am a special little guy who has a neurological issue that causes me to drag my back feet. But I do not let that hold me back. I run and play and bark with all the other Westies. I am bright and alert and I truly enjoy life. I love going on walks and riding in the car. Every time the door to the garage opens, I race out thinking I might get to go and sometimes I do and I love the ride! And I adore my Highlander Hash, it is the best food I have ever eaten.
I would like a gentle loving family to take care of gentle loving me! XOXO Brody
My name is Ben and my owner decided they did not want me anymore. I was hurt, but I made the decision to move on happily to my foster home. No point in looking back...I am after all a Westie!
I am 7-8 years old, 17 pounds and neutered. I have a very sweet disposition, I love to walk in the park, and I love car rides. Just show me my leash and I am ready to go. I would like a family who has time to spend with me, who will love me unconditionally, and never abandon me again. If you fit the bill, I would love to hear from you. XOXO Ben
PS, I LOVE my ball
My name is Molly and I am a 6 year old, 16 pound, spayed Westie. I was in a high kill county shelter but the second I was available, WROC's amazing team jumped in to bail me out. Thank you so much Betze.
I was dirty and matted, but I had my beauty make
over and I emerged a beautiful Westie girl. I am gentle, sweet, and give soft kisses. I will make the perfect addition to my new family! XOXO Molly
Am I just about the cutest little boy you have ever seen? I am a healthy, fun loving playful puppy. I chase, run, play, and sleep for a while and then I start all over. I am a smart guy and will let you know when its time for me to go out, but I am still a puppy, so I still need training. I have all my shots and I am neutered and microchipped. I wish for a fun and caring family who will have lots of time to help me grow up. Sweet Puppy Kisses, Peter
NOTE FROM WROC: This is an incredibly sweet, smart, and happy puppy. He will be an excellent addition to any Westie family!
My name is Rocco and I am appoximately 9 years old, 20 pounds, neutered, microchipped, and current on my shots.
My Mom got really sick and I was sent to live with the grandkids. They did not really understand Westies and they left me in the yard. Then they decided they did not want me and I was in the car on the way to the animal shelter when a good samaritan neighbor stepped in and saved me. She took me in and called WROC. Whew, it was a really close call.
I am a very sweet boy and I prefer to be the only dog. I will follow you everywhere and give you my heart. I enjoy walking and I love my new diet of Highlander Hash. I am looking for a family who will love me as much as I love them. Waiting patiently, Rocco.
I am 6 pounds and 10 weeks old and I am the most adorable little thing. I am all things puppy...I play like a wild girl and then fall over asleep. I need lots of toys to keep me entertained and I can run figure eights all over the yard. I eat 3 meals a day and I need to go out many times a day. I am learning about house training, but I am still a baby, so I have a ways to go.
I have my very own puppy apartment with my crate, pee pads, and lots of toys. It is a great place for sleeping, eating and naps, but I really like being out with the big dogs. I have 2 sets of shots, but require 1 more, then Rabies at 16 weeks and spay at 5-6 months. My new family will need to spend lots of time with me to help me grow up into a wonderful Westie girl. I am looking forward to meeting you!! Warm Puppy Breath, Fiona
I am not worried,
Some have a fear,
But the captain was comfort,
His voice in my ear.
I settled on the plane,
I was flown from Taiwan,
I napped in my crate,
My old life now gone.
We flew across the oceans,
So I could get a fresh start,
On my way to WROC
The rescue with a heart.
And before I knew it,
I landed safe and sound,
She swooped me up in her arms,
And will spoil me, until my new home is found.
This sweet girl is the youngest little jet setter around. Mei-Ling is a precious 3 year old, flown in from Juifang, Taiwan. Though a little jet-lagged, Mei-Ling is a very bubbly and happy dog ready to find her forever home. She is up to date on shots, microchipped, spayed, and weighs 15 lbs.
