Zoey's Story...
The puppy mill mommies have arrived! Meet Zoey, an 8 year old Westie who spent her entire life in cage churning out litter after litter of puppies to be sold in pet shops and boutiques across the country. She is understandably timid but sweet natured and will be looking for a calmer adult home with another friendly dog to help her adjust. She was filthy and matted when she arrived...check back for pics after her makeover. She will turn 8 years old on Thanksgiving and would love to be able to celebrate in a real home! Please submit an application if you are interested.
11-16-13 These 9 special little dogs truly have something to be thankful for this holiday season! Thanks to No More Tears Puppymill rescue they have finally gained their freedom after spending their entire lives in cages in puppy mills breeding puppies to be sold to pet stores around the country. These dogs are adults aged 3-8 years old and are timid but sweet-natured and LOVE other dogs. They will be looking for calmer adult homes with another friendly dog to help them feel comfortable and learn to enjoy life in a real home. Everything is new to them- these dogs have never had names, walked on a leash, or been loved but they blossom into wonderful companions with some patience and time. Please email an application if you are interested in one of these special girls. p>

The puppy mill rescues are a huge financial strain for us- they usually come to us filthy, matted, suffering from ear, skin, and dental infections and needing to be altered and sometimes have other surgeries to prepare them for adoption. Please click on the sponsor me link on this page or go to our paypal on our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com to help donate toward their care...

Most importantly, please remember to NEVER BUY A PUPPY FROM ANY PET STORE OR BOUTIQUE. No matter what they may claim, no reputable breeder would ever allow their dogs to be sold in a store and all their puppies come from mill or other unscrupulous breeders. Even if you are lucky enough to purchase a happy healthy puppy in a store, the money you pay is going directly to support the imprisonment and physical and psychological neglect of their moms and dads. DON'T SHOP, ADOPT!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zoey, a Oak Ridge Westie, West Highland White Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Westie, West Highland White Terrier for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Westie, West Highland White Terrier dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Ridge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oak Ridge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Westie, West Highland White Terrier breeders who help with Westie, West Highland White Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
