Wisconsin Westie Rescue (WWR) is an all volunteer group dedicated to the rescue, foster, veterinary care, and adoption of displaced West Highland White Terriers and Westie mixes in Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, and eastern Minnesota. Formed in 1999, WWR later received its 501(c)(3) Federal Non-Profit status. We are in full compliance with Wisconsin State law and are licensed by the state to operate as a rescue. Our state license number is 268578-DS.
Laura Stafford-Hager is the president of WWR. If you know about a Westie in need, you can contact us by email or visit the Contact page for a mailing address. Laura or another volunteer will contact you as soon as possible.
Cheryl Cutsfoth is our adoption coordinator. Please direct all emails about adoptions to WWR Web Masters and we will be happy to help
answer to your questions about Westies or Westie mixes currently available for adoption. Please put 'Westie adoption' in the subject line in any email questions. Note that there is a $20.00 deposit required to process an adoption application; however, the $20.00 fee will be subtraced from your final adoption fee. To learn more about the adoption process or download an adoption application, please click the our link for the Adopt page.
Barbara Peden is the volunteer coordinator. Our volunteer coordinator organizes everything our volunteers do from arranging pick up or transport of rescue dogs to finding a volunteer to do a home visit for the prospective new forever family. If you are interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities or becoming a volunteer with WWR, you can contact Barbara by email.
Volunteers are Our Backbone
