Adoption Application

Adoption Application


Please note, people/households wanting to adopt from All Westie Rescue 



Once you have completed an application, due to the number of applications we receive, we will not contact you unless we have a rescue that is ready to go and we think is a suitable match. Applications are only valid for three months. 


We have so many people applying to adopt from us & sometimes, for some reason or another, they may change their thoughts (or situations), which leaves them no longer interested in adopting from us. This is why for your adoption application to stay on our waiting list, you must re-submit an application every 2-3 months.

Thank you
