About Our Rescue Group:The purpose of the Great Lakes Westie Rescue, Inc.

GLWR, Inc.'s provided activities and services include, but are not limited to: pick up and transport of Westies; evaluation of Westies; fostering, rehabilitation and training of Westies; soliciting and screening of adoptive permanent homes and placement in approved homes; and the education of the public about the nature of the Westie and responsible Westie care and ownership.

Our Adoption Process:GLWR, Inc. often has Westies for adoption that are not yet listed. Many Westies are adopted to waiting applicants before they can be listed. If you would like us to look for your "perfect match" Westie friend please contact us to fill out our application.
Interested parties are asked to complete an "Adoption Application". Applicants are required to list 3 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 ahome 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.
