Oklahoma Westie Rescue (OWR) is a not-for-profit organization (click here to view a copy of our IRS 501(c)(3) approval letter) dedicated to the protection of all Westies, Scotties, and Cairn Terriers. We are staffed with volunteers and all expenses are paid by OWR or through donations. We network with other rescue organizations in order to facilitate any services provided by OWR or any other rescue groups.
Where do our dogs come from? They are sometimes released by their owners, who can no longer take care of them. Some are found in city animal shelters, lost or abandoned in the streets or rescued from puppy mills. We transport them and place them in foster homes. They are taken to the veterinarian for a physical examination, neutering, vaccinations and treatment of any injuries or, illnesses. After medical evaluation and assessment of temperament, the dog becomes available for adoption and is listed on our website. The search for a forever home begins!
There is too much cruelty in this world. If we can alleviate but a little of it through our efforts, then all our time and money is well spent.
