“Happiness is a cozy Westie”9

Success Stories

Westies in Need (WiN) works very hard to match our wonderful dogs with equally wonderful new families. Here are some of our success stories!


Lilly's Story

One of our little rescues was named Lilly - she was the worst case of skin problems we had ever seen when she arrived into our rescue program. The Pet Network saw her info on our website and asked if they could do a story on our Lilly and our rescue. Click here to watch the video of Lilly and her journey...they did a great job and we can't thank the Pet Network enough for supporting us!  Lilly says THANKS too!

Maggie Mae Elizabeth
Maggie Mae Elizabeth

A warm WELCOME to 10 yr old Westie-mix, Maggie May Elizabeth.

Maggie comes to us as an owner surrender, recently diagnosed with diabetes. Truly heart breaking, as her senior Mommy on a fixed income was challenged with the very high cost of vet care, medication and special food and just could not bare the vet's suggestion to put her down. 

She will be having a follow-up vet visit this week for some bloodwork to make sure that she's on the proper dose of insulin.
Thank you to her foster Mommy for opening her heart and home to this sweet girl and her special needs.

An update...Maggie has been adopted! She has found a perfect and forever home
