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, 9 years old, neutered, and current on all his shots.
Is there a place in your heart for him?
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.
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.
Hunter is an amazing dog and was loved to the moon! As hard as it was, Hunter's owner relinquished him to WROC so he could have a better life. This sweetheart loves dog, people, the dog park, his daily walks and he is especially fond of watching TV with his foster family on the back of the sofa. He is potty trained, knows how to use a dog door and is a perfect gentleman. His foster family says that he is a perfect housemate.
Hunter is 8-9 years old, 20 pounds, neutered, current on his shots and microchipped. He would thrive in an environment with a family that has lots of time for him and even another dog pal or two would be a welcoming situation for Hunter.
I am a 6 month old Westie puppy. I came to rescue because my family had no time for me. I am very active, inquisitive, happy, and busy so I need someone who has time to spend with me to teach me about the ways of the world. I love to play and race around the house and yard with squeaky toys and balls.
I am almost house & leash trained because I am a very smart saavy girl. I am spayed, microchipped and I have all my shots. I am looking for the right family for a super cute girl like me. XOXO Ella
When I arrived at WROC, I was in terrible shape. My skin and coat looked really bad and I had an infection. I did not feel well and was not very interested in playing, walking or even eating. But take a look at me now! My infection is gone and my coat is coming back. It is amazing what TLC, medicated baths, excellent vet care, and a healthy diet can do for a guy
I love my Highlander Hash and playing with squeaky toys. So fun to roll on my back and squeak them wildly, it makes the other dogs crazy. I am very sweet and like to sit close on the couch to watch TV and I am leash and house trained. I am 8-9 years old, 16 pounds, neutered, and current on all my shots. I would love a gentle family that would promise to take care of me forever. Happy Westie Kisses, Blizz
I arrived at the shelter so matted that I could barely walk. It was so hot and I was so miserable that shelter staff took pity on me and shaved off all my hair. I feel so much better and after all, it is only hair and it will grow back.
I am approximately 6 years old, spayed, and microchipped. I had a dental so I have a bright shiny smile. And smile I do because I am so happy and sweet. I like nothing better than to be next to my foster Mom and I will tap her arm if I think I need more pets. I am house & leash trained and I use the doggie door with ease. I really am the perfect companion and I am waiting patiently for my perfect family!!
May the force be with you...it IS with me! Princess Leia
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!
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.
