Westies Available for Adoption
Please familiarize yourself with the Westie breed to be certain these terriers are a good match for your family. Westies have a very strong prey-drive and must be kept on leash or in a fenced area to be safe. Adopters should understand that our Westies will need an adjustment period to settle into their new home.
GLWR, Inc. requires a completed application (available by clicking the "APPLY NOW" button on each Westie), personal references, a vet reference, and a home visit. GLWR is an all-volunteer 501(C)3 non-profit corporation, an adoption donation of $300.00 helps support our rescue program. Be sure to visit us on Facebook!
Our adoption process begins with completing an application. We receive many applications but may not have a Westie that is a suitable match for your home at that time. All applications are kept on file and applicants are contacted as soon as a Westie is matched to your profile. A short phone conversation begins the matching process that insures our Westie will be successful in their new home. GLWR asks to speak with two personal references and with your veterinarian. One of our volunteers will visit your home to discuss what characteristics in a Westie you feel will be best suited to your home and lifestyle. A "meet and greet" between all family members and current pets will help determine if the prospective Westie is a good match for your family. A good match indicates a successful adoption is likely. Our online application may be completed below or you can email us for a file copy to print and mail back to us.
