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.
Trick or Treat! Have you seen anything cuter than these adorable Westie puppies, Henry & Petey? They came to WROC because an elderly couple purchased them and then decided they could not take care of them. The boys weigh in at 9 and 10 pounds and are full of puppy mischief. They are very sweet puppies and will let you hold them like babies on their back for a while, then it is back to wild puppy play.
The lucky families who adopt these babies will need to have the time to feed 3 meals a day, to teach them the ways of the world, and to love them unconditionally.
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.
Daisy & Herbiew came to us under very sad circumstances. Their owner passed away suddenly, leaving this senior pair with no place to go. Thank you to our dedicated volunteers, Bob & Jackie, who drove to Las Vegas and brought them home to WROC. They are absolutely beautiful dogs and are very active. They are such a resilient pair, they made the trip and transition very easily. They follow their foster Mom around the house and totally enjoy being petted. They love walking in the park and discovering the squeaky toys in the toy box. They sleep quietly in their crates at night, but would much prefer the big bed! This gorgeous pair is leash trained, housetrained, spayed and neutered, shots are current, and microchipped.
We are looking for a special family for Daisy & Herbie so that they can stay togeter. They are perfect, well trained companions. Their new family will be so delighted.
Meet MoJo, a very handsome 6-7 year old neutered male. MoJo was dumped at a shelter in horrible shape by his owners who said "he was too much trouble". Years of neglect did not break his spirit, however. He spent two nights in the hospital and is being treated for a urinary tract infection, ear infection and as soon as he is feeling better, he will get his teeth cleaned.
This tiny little boy, all of 12 lbs is underweight but that will be taken care of in no time. MoJo is a sweetheart and his eyes just burst with gratefulness! Give us a little more time to get to know him better.
There is something about being in the right place at the right time and I am one lucky girl. I lived in Joey's neighborhood and we often saw each other walking in the park. When my owner said she might put me down because she did not feel well enough to take care of me, WROC stepped up and took me in. Whew, what a relief because I deserve better than that.
I am such a happy girl, gentle, quiet and I love to walk and cuddle. My shots are current, I am spayed, microchipped and weigh about 14 pounds. I may not be a Westie, perhaps a Cairn/Schnauzer kissed by a Westie mix, but I have so much love to give and I will make someone a perfect companion. I would love to be your best friend, I promise to love you unconditionally.
My name is Paddy and I am 6 years old, neutered, and current on all my shots. My owner's son bought me as a puppy present for her, but now she is not able to take care of me. Being the resilient Westie that I am, I took my life change in stride and am fitting in well with my foster family.
I am a very handsome boy if I say so myself. I am active and strong. I enjoy long walks, playing with my toys, and even running by the bicycle. I love the exercise!! I am a smart guy and have a few tricks up my sleeve. I do a great sit up for a cookie!! I am really sweet and love ear rubs and relaxing with my people. I am totally ready for my new life.
If you are looking for a very cool dog, seriously, I am really really cool... then jump on that application and let me hear from you!! XOXO Paddy
This darling little girl was rescued from a shelter, scared, tired and alone. Before Tessy's feet could touch the floor, she got a bath and was so relaxed and grateful to get all the grit off her little body. She is very cooperative on the grooming table, has a voracious appetite (she could stand to gain a pound or two) and she wants nothing more than to be by her person's side.
Tessy is approximately 4-5 years old, 15 lbs, up to date on her shots, spayed and microchipped. She will have her teeth cleaned as soon as she is settled in. Give us a little more time to get to know her better.
IZZY POP UPDATE (8/19/14) Just four weeks in rescue and already Izzy has a lot of new hair growth. Our great diet and skin regime has this girl on a fast road to recovery. Izzy is no longer on any medications and is being maintained by diet alone. She is still getting medicated baths, but just once a week instead of daily. Soon, those baths will be a thing of the past.
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.
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!
Izzy is currently suffering from Malassezia Dermatitis; a common cause of skin problems left untreated. No worry, because working with these skin dogs is something we do best and although she is already beautiful, she will be turning heads very soon. She is getting daily medicated soft boar brush baths which she loves, medication and lots of rest. Well, no rest. She's ready to take on the world! She was even a good little girl while she was getting her "groom on"! Izzy is not available for immediate adoption as she needs time in foster care while we work on her skin. But rest assured, she will recover and will be beautiful in no time. Watch for her updates. Welcome to rescue Izzy Pop!
