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?
Sweet Cookie is approximately 8-9 years old. She was turned into the shelter because she was discovered to be hypothyroid. This very inexpensive pill has regulated her thyroid and with the proper diet, Cookie has lost 6 lbs in foster care and is looking fabulous at a lean 17 lbs! There is no doubt that Cookie was out of sorts and upset after losing the only home she knew. But after a few weeks in foster care, she has settled in beautifully, loves the routine and is especially fond of her foster and resident Westie friends.
All Cookie needed was time and patience and she is one very happy little girl. She loves to snuggle with her person, and enjoys the dog park. She is shy at first but warms up quickly.
Cookie had a complete blood panel done, her teeth cleaned, she is up to date with shots, spayed and microchipped. All she needs now is a loving home.
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 Rocco and I am appoximately 9 years old, 20 pounds, neutered, microchipped, and current on my shots. I just went to the spa and LOOK at me. I am gorgeous.
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.
Having a lady bug land on you is a magical moment. When we walked out of the vet's office today, a lady bug landed on Lily's nose. This darling little girl was found in an alley way, lost, scared and awfully neglected, but thanks to a lovely young lady, Lily made it to WROC safe and sound.
Lily was matted and had to be shaved, but even so she is still so adorable! Her personality matches her sweet looks. She is full of kisses, quiet and just so grateful to be in our hands. She is a tiny girl, all of 11 lbs. She has a healthy appetite, sleeps peacefully and is a lovely housemate. She had her shots done, blood work, fecal exam, microchip and dental. Lily is estimated to be around 12 years old; an older gal that is looking for the perfect retirement home. Her coat will grow out in no time. We look forward to seeing this little pop tart blossom. Thank you Stephanie for helping Lily find her way home!
My name is Georgie and I do not have a care in the world. I am happy go lucky and playful. In my previous life, I was living outdoors in this summer heat, dirty, and uncared for. My owner gave me away without a second thought...lucky for me because I am now with WROC. It just goes to show how resilient we Westies are. I cannot wait for my new family who will shower me with love and I will give such great kisses back.
I am 1-2 years old, neutered, microchipped and my shots are current. I am working on my leash and house training, but I am a very smart boy and am learning quickly. My foster Mom says that I am the cutest sweetest Westie ever.
PS I absolutely LOVE my soft squeaky toys & nylabones!
Gus is a very sweet boy that loves to be with his person. He is very friendly, loves walks, the dog park, and toys! He is 9 years old, current on his shots, neutered and microchipped.
Gus would do best in a home with someone that can spend lots of time with him and make him number 1. He weighs approximately 20 lbs and loves to sit on your lap watching TV. He is happily awaiting his new family.
This is WROC's Pixie and this is her story:
She had been watching me for weeks, worried that I would get hit by a car or chased down by a coyote. She called the authorities but they said there was nothing they could do. She would bring me home every night after work only to find me out in the street again the next day. Sometimes she would see me tied up to the front porch with no water, food or bed. She never saw me eat so she would sneak food when she knew no one was home. Then one day she heard me cry as my owner opened the front door and let me go. She had enough. She confronted my owner only to receive a heartbreaking response. "I don't care what you do with her. Just get her out of here".
She swooped me in her arms and took me home and then called WROC. I was neglected, matted, skinny and had cuts and scratches all over me. My owner was not good to me. But now that I am a WROC'er, I've had all my wounds attended to, blood work, dental, vaccinations and I am now microchipped. I have received a clean bill of health and I am ready for my new life thanks to a gal named Tracy who wouldn't turn her back. A very grateful Pixie
Alfie's family had a change in circumstances and they relinquished him to WROC. He is shy with strangers but when he warms up, you will find a very fun personality. He is a gentle boy who enjoys the company of other dogs, walking in the park, and of course Highlander Hash.
Alfie is 3-4 years old, microchipped, neutered, and all of his shots are current.
