Westie Rescue will conduct a phone interview in addition to personal and veterinary reference checks.
A Home Safety Check will be required prior to approving any adoption.
A tax deductable DONATION is requested at the time of adoption. These donations are the lifeblood of the organization and we can't rescue Westies without them. We operate under the 501(c)(3) of the Mid Atlantic States; their suggested tax-deductible Adoption Donations range from $250-$500. The Adoption Donations are not for a particular dog, but go toward rescue and care of incoming dogs.
