San Antonio Area Scottie & Westie Rescue
WHO WE ARE
We are the San Antonio Area Scottie & Westie Rescue. We have been taking in homeless Scotties, Westies and the occasional Cairn for 20 plus years. All the dogs we rescue are spayed or neutered, fully vetted and microchipped and then are fostered one on one with our foster caregivers who evaluate them and make sure they are temperamentally and physically sound before they are placed. We are affiliated with the Scottish Terrier Club of America, Texas Scottie Rescue Fund, Inc., and the Responsible Pet Owners Alliance and we network with all other recognized breed rescue groups. There is no "shelter" and our dogs are not available for viewing. We work on an application basis and if you are interested in adopting one of our dogs we ask that you complete the applicaton on the webpage at www.texasscottierescue.com When a dog is ready for adoption, we screen the appplications and try to find the best possible home for the dog. Every dog has individual needs and it is our primary goal to meet those needs. We do charge an adoption fee (usually $200 but could be less for an older dog) to cover some of our veterinary bills. Many of our dogs are placed without being posted online so having an application on file is necessary.
ADOPTING A FRIEND
If you have not been owned by a Terrier, please research the breed you are interested in before committing to one. www.akc.org is a good place to start to research any AKC recognized breed. Scotties, Westies and Cairns are not the breed for everyone. They were bred to "go to ground and give voice" and are natural hunters. We do require a home visit before we offer a dog for adoption and therefore need to restrict our adoptions to the parts of Texas we or our helpers can visit. We do not place dogs outside of Texas but can probably refer you to a rescue coordinator in your state if you are interested in adopting.
