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.
I just found out I am the best kept secret in rescue! I'm a mover and a shaker! I move dog beds across the room and then I shake them up. I love the dog park and will play fetch with you for a good long time, even bringing back the ball until I've had enough. You will know it because I will make you fetch our favorite kong ball. Everyone gets along with me just fine, probably because I am a "kick-back" kinda guy and don't stress over the small stuff. I make things happen! If I want to sleep on the big bed, I am one cute little cookie that is hard to resist. I'm a sneaky little fella and will make my way to your pillow in a blink of the eye!
I will sleep in a crate next to your bed, if I have too and quietly sleep through the night, but you should know I don't think that's cool. I'm an easy boy to bathe and groom because I do like to be handsome. But for me, it's effortless. I have few demands but high expectations. If you give me good food, play ball with me and stuff a toy box to the rim, I will give you unconditional love! I am a healthy, 3-4 year old 16 pound boy, current on my shots, neutered, & microchipped XOXO Thor
My name is Wallace, Wally to my friends! I am a handsome 6 year old, 21 pound, neutered boy. I am microchipped and all of my shots are current. I came to WROC because my Dad passed away. I was sad and confused, but now I am good. After all I am a Westie...resilient, strong, and hopeful.
I am happy in my foster home. I go on long walks, I play, and I eat great food. That Highlander Hash is just about the best thing I every ate. I had surgery on my back knee, but I am good as new now. I am so ready for my new home. I am a strong, happy boy. I am looking a great pack leader who wants an excellent companion.
Is this just the cutest little thing you've ever seen? Meet Izzy Pop, a tiny 12 lb Westie girl that was rescued from a no-kill shelter after being turned in as a stray. The shelter staff took wonderful care of her until WROC could pick her up.
Izzy is approximately 3 years old and though life hasn't been kind to her, one would never know it because she is the sweetest little girl, bouncy and a very well behaved little peanut. Her eyes just beam with love and curiosity and she has already claimed her favorite spot on the back of the sofa. Something tells us she might even be a mischievous one...in a good way!
My owners had a baby, the beginning of the end for me. It was only a matter of time, but my owners made the right decision for my well being to call WROC. I was shy and a little sad when I arrived, but I have gotten into the swing of things. I really like my foster brothers and sisters. I like walking in the park. It's new for me but I am a smart guy and I am learning quickly how my leash works. I am 20 pounds, neutered, microchipped and current on my shots.
I am a gentle sweet boy who gives soft kisses and loves to cuddle. My fondest wish is for a family who has lots of love and time to spend with me. I promise to be the best dog ever. Westie Kisses, Fletcher
Do I have a story for you...my previous owners dumped me at the county shelter. WROC came for me, but the shelter lost me. (REALLY?...If only I could actually talk!) They could not find me anywhere, then 2 weeks later I re-appeared. After 3 more trips to the shelter, WROC was successful in springing me on the 4th of July. What a great day!! Unfortunately, I developed kennel cough from being in the shelter so long, which turned into pneumonia. I spent 5 days in intensive care, but WROC's great vet and multiple antibiotics healed me completely,
I am a happy sassy little imp. I love to play, go on walks, and chase those pesky squirrels. I am all of 12 pounds, spayed, microchipped and my shots are current.
Look out everybody, Princess Stella is in the house and looking for her perfect family!! She will run away with your heart.
I am a 6 year old, 22 pound neutered Westie. I am microchipped and my shots are current. My family situation changed and they made the decision to give me up, lucky for me to WROC. You can tell from my picture that I have been very well taken care of...I am a good looking guy if I do say so myself!!
I enjoy lots of exercise, walking, playing, running - I love it all. So I am requesting an active family with lots of time to spend with me. I will do my very best to please you and I will love you unconditionally.
Waiting patiently, Finn
O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? I am with WROC, of course & thank goodness!!!
Today was a happy day. even though I was hit by a car and I spent a month in the shelter, healing and waiting on my owner to come. My WROC rescuer came for me and I began the first day of my new life. I received two baths and a much-needed trim to remove the dozens of matted balls of hair in my coat.
My foster mom is amazed at how easy I am. I use the doggie door and do my business outside. I sleep on a doggie bed during the day and in a crate at night. I am so grateful to have a clean, warm bed that I sleep through the entire night and if you listen carefully, you will hear my gentle and very content little snore.
I love people and hanging out with the other Westie in my foster home. I love to take walks and explore my new neighborhood. I am healthy and eating well. I am approximately 4 years old, neutered, microchipped and I am up to date on all my shots. All I need is a new forever home to make my new life complete. Will you be my Juiliet or Julian or both? XOXO Romeo
Frankie here, I am a 5-6 years old, neutered, 20 pound gorgeous Westie boy. Seriously, I am just about the cutest and sweetest guy you could ever hope to meet. My owner made the difficult decision that I would have a better life with WROC.
I travelled far and wide to come to WROC, any way you can imagine. planes, trains, and automobiles. It was a journey, but I enjoyed every minute. So many people assisted me along the way...thank you Sandy & Billy for the limo ride, thank you Delta for the upgrade to first class, and thank you Cindy for the ride home.
I have a such a sunny disposition that I was just meant to be in California. I am waiting patiently because I know my perfect family is out there just waiting for me.
