Initial Rehoming Questionnaire Form
BEFORE APPLYING TO REHOME A WESTIE FROM THE SCHEME PLEASE READ AND ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS TRUTHFULLY
We need to know something about you so that we can match you to a Westie looking for a new home, and a Westie which will fit into your home.
Please complete the questionnaire below and we will start looking for the right Westie for you.
Applications to adopt a Westie are held on a central file for 30 days, after which date they may be deleted or destroyed. Should you not hear from us within this timeframe please re-apply. All applications will be acknowledged by WRS.
- Westies do not like children or noises which children make

In addition to the above, please remember that they may have had a sad start in life:

As a charity we ask for a donation
The Adoption Donation is requested as a contribution towards veterinary fees, petrol, telephone and other administrative costs which accrue on each dog that goes through our care – in many cases this amount will not cover our full cost. This donation is also considered as a token of trust, in that you appreciate the value of a pet and are able to commit to funding all future veterinary costs.
