CURRENT FOSTER DOGS

Our current foster dogs are shown below. See their stories at https://westierescue-mi.com/2021-foster-photos/.  Note that the last line of their story will typically tell you if they are still available.

We seldom place outside of the state. Occasionally a harder to place dog may find a home in a neighboring state but due to the difficulties in enforcing contracts, doing home visits, getting the dog transported back to us if the adoption doesn’t work out, etc., it is rare that a dog would go to a distant state.

FOSTER HOMES DESPERATELY NEEDED!!
If you have it in your heart to foster a Westie, please go to the link above called “Volunteering”. We hate to have to say “no” to any Westie in need but we don’t have the foster space to continue taking them in at this rate. While we may not seem to have a lot of dogs when you look above, at times we have had as many as ten. They tend to come in groups and it puts a real strain on our resources. If you can foster even once or twice a year, it would be a huge help and may even save lives. Please give it serious consideration! A Westie NEEDS YOU!

WESTIE RESCUE MICHIGAN INC. MISSION STATEMENT

Westie Rescue Michigan is organized as a nonprofit corporation under the laws of the State of Michigan for charitable purposes. Specific goals include:

  1. To provide assistance and care for homeless West Highland White Terriers (WHWTs) specifically in, but not limited to, the lower Peninsula of Michigan.
  2. To have a WHWT foster care program, which will foster in home, provide medical, emotional, and behavioral care, and eventually place in adoptive homes or, in rare instances, to humanely euthanize those dogs who cannot be safely placed or are too ill to find a good quality of life.
  3. To raise funds to provide the medical and other care of foster dogs; these funds may sometimes be used to assist other groups with similar goals or to assist with medical research specifically intended to benefit the breed or to augment existing and newly formed educational programs for the public; or to advocate for the café and well-being of animals.
  4. To, on occasion, provide the same type of care for Westie mixes and rarely, other breeds.
