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.
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 am so ready for my new home! "Come on, babe, Why don't we paint the town? And all that Jazz.......ie"
Hi there, my name is Sprite. My family decided that after 9 years that they could not take care of me anymore. I was diagnosed with diabetes which is treated with two insulin shots daily. With proper diet and my shots, I am able to lead a normal life. But my Mom grew old and no one wanted me. It broke my heart because I tried so hard to be such a good girl. I am sweet, loyal, kind, and very affectionate. Fortunately for me, the family called WROC who welcomed me with open arms. I am fllourishing in my foster home.
I am small Westie, only 12 pounds, spayed and cute as can be (my foster Mom said that). I am an active, nimble little girl. I enjoy walking in the park and the company of the other Westies here. I love cuddling with my people and I would like a family who has lots of time to spend with me. I promise I will steal your heart. Waiting patiently, Sprite
Sami's owners left him in a Las Vegas shelter. He was neglected, sick and very tired. The shelter kept him for only 3 days and scheduled him for euthanasia. WROC's friends in Las Vegas jumped into action, pulling him from the shelter just in time. His journey began, travelling from Nevada to California with so many people rallying to help this Westie boy. He is now with his foster family, recovering from an ear infection and some minor skin issues, getting warm medicated baths, medication, and tender loving care.
Sami is a sweet, gentle boy who enjoys his walks and especially his food! He loves to be with his people and he enjoys his Westie companions. He is 12 years old, neutered and current on all his shots. This is a very special senior boy and we are looking for a family that will have lots of time and love for him. He deserves the very best happily ever after!!
Oh boy! The world has been a challenge in my very young life. I was found as a stray and then adopted from the shelter, only to be returned because of my puppy ways! Evidently I had too much energy for my previous family and instead of calling rescue, I was dumped at the shelter. But I needed not to worry...WROC came for me and I am settling in just fine with my foster brothers and sisters.
I am between 1-2 years old, neutered, up to date on my shots and microchipped. I am looking for a family that has lots of energy for a puppy like me. In return, you will have adopted the sweetest little boy, all of 12 pounds of me! My coat is super short right now but it will grow in no time. My new pictures will be posted soon! Love Wally
Truman is an amazing 9-10 year old boy that came to rescue because his family's circumstances changed. He is a lovely little guy that gets along beautifully with all the Westies in the house. He is potty trained, neutered and microchipped and will get his complete vet exam within the next few days.
Truman is sweet and gentle and quite polite! Give us a little time to get to know him better and we will update his story soon.
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 entire body was covered with sores and scabs, his eyes and ears were infected, his thyroid was very low, and he was battling an internal infection. We immediately started our skin regime of daily soft scrub medicated baths and vet prescribed medicine.
We are proud of his progress and he is on the road to recovery. He will be with us for a while longer, but in the meantime, 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, and he is playing well with others. Rex is 21 pounds, neutered, and current on all his shots. Is there a place in your heart for him?

Our sweet Thor spent a year in foster care, was adopted and then was returned because he didn't quite fit in. Shortly after he came back to WROC, he was diagnosed with Westie Lung Disease (Pulmonary Fibrosis). For that reason, Thor will stay with his original foster family within our Forever Foster Program where treatment will focus on support and controlling the symptoms to enhance the quality of life. We felt this was best for Thor because upon his return, he was withdrawn and depressed and we didn't want him to go through another significant change with his condition.
It is important to note that Thor is happy again and has an abundance of squeaker Kong balls which makes his world go around.
