About Our Rescue Group:History of Westie Rescue Houston Organization:
Westie Rescue Houston is an all-volunteer, donation sponsored, non-profit organization dedicated to providing medical care, socialization skills, and finding permanent homes for Westies, Scotties and other small terriers.
We attained our non-profit 501(c) 3 status in 2006 but have been rescuing Westies and other terrier breeds since 2001. We currently rescue and re home over 100 dogs each year.
Westie Rescue Houston operates solely with the help of over 40 dedicated volunteers throughout the greater Houston and Southern Louisiana area.
How Our Organization Gets Our Dogs:
Westie Rescue Houston receives dogs through multiple channels. Some are strays turned in directly to the organization. Some are from owners surrendering the dog due to finances, health or family situations. We also receive dogs from over-filled animal shelters and from puppy mill and hoarder seizes.
What We Do At Westie Rescue Houston:
Westie Rescue Houston organize dog adoptions, fostering, educational and public awareness campaigns. We operate fund raising in order to cover the medical care and attention our adoptive dogs require. And finally, we help direct current owners with behavioral and/or medical issues of Westies and Scotties.
Our Adoption Process:Adoption Process:
The adoption process generally takes around 2-4 weeks to complete, depending on several factors, such as volunteer availability and/or suitable dog availability. A typical adoption process goes as follows:
Browse our dogs available for adoption
-Complete the Adoption Application, stating the dog or dog breed you are interested in
-Applications are reviewed and references checked by Westie Rescue Houston. (Be aware, successful applicants must meet basic requirements such as a safe home environment, fenced yard, experience with the breed, etc.)
-A phone interview is conducted and a home visit is scheduled
-When the home visit passes inspection, an appointment will be arranged to visit with the available dogs and see if there is a match.
-A contract is signed and the adoption fee is collected and the dog goes to the potential adoptive home for a trial period that will allow up to two weeks to make sure there is a good match.
If, after two weeks, the family and dog are found to be a suitable match, the adoption is considered final as per the contract.
New owner completes the microchip and registration process.
