Can you offer your love and home to foster a Westie?
We rely on private homes to house and care for our abandoned and surrendered
Westies while they await their new “forever” family.







One of our greatest needs is loving foster homes. Becoming a WRNE foster home is a wonderful and rewarding experience. In addition, it is also a significant responsibility to protect and care for our Westies. WRNE foster homes provide housing, medical care, rehabilitation, exercise, and love to an endless number of homeless dogs every year. Putting these "unwanted" dogs into a temporary loving environment allows them time to heal their wounds and gain confidence in their relationship with others before they go on to permanent placement. Fostering can lead to adoption -- the choice is yours. It can be a chance to experience life with a Westie before making a long-term commitment.

Note: We reimburse the cost of veterinary visits. Supplies, food and toys are paid by the foster family.
