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 Duffy and I am a 4 year old, 18 pound, neutered Westie. I came to rescue because my elderly parents both went into the hospital. Mom's son called WROC and said that I would be euthanized unless they took me within the hour. Thankfully, WROC stepped in and saved me.
I had no structure in my life and was left to my own devices. Now I am with WROC's trainer who is teaching me about the ways of the world. I am much happier and have learned obedience training and I am a different doggie. Soon I will be ready for adoption. I am looking for a strong pack leader who will continue my training and give me lots of exercise and attention.
I will be a great friend, I promise. Duffy
I am so lucky, a WROC supporter was volunteering at a shelter when I arrived as a stray. I was bedraggled, flea biiten, eyes infected, and my skin was red and crusty. She knew that the shelter environment was not good for me so she called WROC and they came for me the very next day. Already I am so much better, no more fleas, my hair is growing back, and my eyes are bright and clear. I love to walk and am very good on the leash. I learned the doggie door in less than a day. And most of all, I love to cuddle next to my people. I will give you a gentle little nudge just so you know I am there.
I have a condition called dry eye which means I do not have enough tears in my eyes. The simple solution is an eye drop twice a day. I will be spayed this week and shortly after I will be available for adoption. Everyone who meets me thinks that I am so cute and sweet. I am 6-7 years old, 16 pounds, and microchipped. Better send your application soon because I am sure to nudge my way into someone's heart very soon. XOXO Sweet Jessica
Luke was picked up as a stray and the shelter was so happy to find that he had a microchip with owner information. They called to give them the good news that Luke was found, only to be told his owner did not want him anymore. That turns out to be a good thing because clearly, Luke was not taken care of properly.
So little Luke, all of 8 years old, sat in the shelter with not a thing to call his own...no owner, no collar, no leash, no toys, no soft blanket, nothing. It was heartbreaking.
But shelter staff took pity on this gentle sweet boy and called WROC, transport was arranged, and now he is safe. Neglect didn’t break his spirit and he is just so happy to be in a loving foster home where he is getting everything he needs. Luke has been to the vet and started his medications and baths. It will take some time to get him back to health, but that’s what we’re for! Welcome to rescue Luke! Luke is 20 pounds, neutered, microchipped and current on his shots.
It's going to be a very Merry Christmas for Wally now that he is a WROC dog! Wally has some medical issues that we are addressing such as skin, ear and eye infections. These ailments will resolve in a few weeks now that he is on medication, getting nutritious meals twice a day and daily medicated soft brush baths. He's had his bloodwork done and will get a dental done when he's had a chance to recuperate. This little guy is a trooper! He was so appreciative of his bath and absolutely loved getting all the muck scrubbed off. He is a little love bug, so sweet and tender, and gets along beautifully with all of our other dogs. He's
such a sweetheart now that just think how even more amazing he is going to be when he's feeling better!
Wally is approximately 9-10 year old, and currently weighs 13 lbs. He is much too thin for his frame but we will get him to his optimal weight of 18-19 lbs. Watch the website for his updates. We will post his transformation regularly. Merry Christmas Wally! We are so happy you are here!
My name is Daisy and I am an 8 year old, 18 pound, spayed female Westie. I came to rescue because my 90 year owner was ill and went to the hospital. There was really no place for me to go, but the family called WROC, who welcomed me with open arms. I am a very sweet happy girl. I am a little overweight, but I love going on walks every day which is something I have missed for a while. I am working on my housetraining but I am a smart girl and adapting very quickly.
I like to dance for my dinner and my other favorite thing is the corner of the couch. I will cuddle up and watch TV for as long as you want. I had a dental cleaning at the vet and I am adoption ready. Better hurry with that application, I am going to dance my way into someone's heart very soon.
My name is Gus and I am a neutered, 20 pound, 8-9 years old Westie. My shots are current and I am microchipped. My family had a baby and there was no more time for me. I had been with them my whole life, so my transition to rescue was hard on me. But I am a Westie and we are made of tough stuff so I moved on and I am happy again.
I really like to walk and I love to cuddle next to you on the couch while watching TV. I get along well with the other doggies in my foster home, but I am longing for a home of my own, one that will spend lots of time with me and love me to pieces. I have so much love to give, you will not be sorry.
Big Westie Kisses, Gus
