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 came back to rescue after two months because he's a laid back kinda guy. Well, we know that, which is what makes him such a wonderful little guy. Apparently, his home was too active with 5 mile walks and hiking which is not Thor's forte.
Thor is back in his original foster home with many Westies which makes him very happy. 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 with the cutest Westie cut.
We don't know why his previous adoptive family shaved him completely down before returning him to us, especially in this cold weather but we find solace in knowing it will grow back. This picture is of Thor just before he was adopted. The other picture is how he looks now, but we will have him back to his previous glory in no time.
Thor will do best with a family that enjoys dog parks or playing in the back yard. He is not a marathon runner. He just needs someone to cuddle with him, toss his ball, and 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 was completely vetted, had his dental and blood work done, he is microchipped and is neutered. Thor will do well with other dogs or as an only dog.
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.
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"
My name is Codie and I am a 6 year old neutered male Westie. I have a brand new sparkling smile since I just had my teeth cleaned, my shots are current, and I am microchipped.
I came to WROC because my kids grew up and the family had no time for me. Their loss really because I am quite the catch. I am a fun loving strong boy. I really enjoy long walks and hanging out with my people. If you have the time, you could be mine!!!
Big Westie Kisses, Codie
My name is Henri and I am a 5 year old, 20 pound neutered male. My owners could not keep me anymore because they said they had too many dogs in their house. I did not understand, how could that be, I tried really hard to be a good dog, I was heartbroken.
WROC welcomed me with open arms and very carefully healed my broken heart. I now run with the pack and play happily with my toys.
I am a very sweet Westie and like nothing better than to cuddle up next to you on the couch. I give soft kisses and gentle nudges so you know I am there.
I would like a family that has plenty of time to spend with me and lots of love to go around. I would not mind a brother or a sister. I will wait patiently while you get that application to WROC. Henri
My name is Mikey and I was lost and ended up in a scary shelter. I was so frightened that I just huddled in the back of my cage. I did not know it, but WROC was watching me and as soon as I was available, my rescue angel came for me on New Years eve. What a great way to start the new year! I am now back to being my fun, active self. I love to play and I really love to chase my ball.
I am 2-3 years old, 18 pounds, and neutered. Look for updates and my beauty makeover soon.
