Our Adoption Process:

If you would like us to look for your "perfect match" Westie friend please visit our web site at www.glwrescue.org and fill out our online application.

Adopters are asked to complete an "Adoption Application". Applicants are required to list 2 non-family references and their regular care veterinarian for contact. Upon review of the application they will be contacted to discuss possible matches. If a possible match is found a home visit is scheduled for the family. Upon agreement that we have a good match an "Adoption Contract" is completed and signed. Our adoption fee is based on the specific Westie, depending on age, health, etc. We do not adopt Westies into homes with children under the age of 8 years. The Adoption Donation for our Westies is $300.00. Senior and special needs Westies may have a reduced donation amount.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
