Adoption Fees and Surrender Fees are required.
Fees help cover the medical care of the dog while he or she waits for a new home, as well as food and transportation costs. These fees help to provide care for the other dogs in the rescue group who may have medical bills that are much higher than any possible adoption fee. The money also acts as a donation to help support the Westie Rescue as a whole, allowing the group to continue its efforts to rescue and rehome pets.
Adoption Fees vary on the age of the dog. 0-7 years old, $300. 8 years old and over, $150.
At times a non-westie dog will be placed for adoption with a Westie. The adoption fee for these dogs is $100.
Surrender Fee is $50 to $100 per dog, based on the dogs health, medical history, transportation needs, etc.
We understand that not all individuals may be able to pay the required fees. We will not turn away a dog in need because the owner is unable to pay the surrender fee.
