Westies in Need - WiN


Westies in Need (WiN) is always adding new links to our site ...so please check back often.

Westies In Need has partnered with Animal Wellness Magazine,who will be generously donating to us 40% from every subscription that is sold if the unique Promo Code AWA039 is used.
Animal Wellness Magazine is a fantastic resource for life saving and life improving education as well as featuring a section focused on rescue organizations with stories from across the country.
We really appreciate your support and know that Animal Wellness will make a difference in your Westie's life.

We are pleased to announce another wonderful sponsorship. The Healthy Dog store is now carrying the Mercola Vet supplements and has offered all Westies in Need folks a 10% discount on all supplements they carry!!!

They carry: the Digestive Enzyme, the Pro-biotic, Joint Supplement, Spirugreen, Krill Oil and dental bones.

Many, many of our Westie people already use the Mercola products (they are quite amazing!!!) but in the past have had to order from the US---finally a Canadian store has brought in Mercola---so no more waiting for shipments from the US and dealing with customs and brokerage fees!!!!

The Healthy Dog Store will ship right to your door. We can not thank them enough!

To contact the Healthy Dog store to place an order, call 647-933-9034 or e-mail them at fillmybowl@thehealthydogstore.ca or if you shop online use the promo code "winfriend". It will apply your 10% discount to any supplement, including kits like the Itchy Skin Kit.
