Westie Rescue Scheme Case Studies
We are a national organisation formed by the late Barbara Graham in the late 1970’s. Initially we consisted of a few caring colleagues who struggled to make ends meet against all odds and in the face of adversity. The more widely recognised The Westie Rescue Scheme of the present day came into being in 1993. The Scheme now has over 2500 registered ‘friends’.

Neon came into Westie Rescue Scheme in January 2013 with bad skin condition. The vet took the first photograph and said that he was unsure if Neon could be successfully treated. Re-homing Neon was not possible with his condition, so he stayed with his foster carers and WRS paid for his treatment.
Happily Neon recovered and the second photograph shows this and he was rehomed later that year. After spending his final days with his adopted family, Neon died of old age last year.Donate Now
Bella came into rescue in 2015 aged 6 years, she had a bad case of Malassezia, a skin condition that her owners, a young couple with a baby, could no longer cope with. Bella had extensive hair loss and her ears were badly infected. A treatment regime of medicated baths and oral medication commenced immediately which showed good results within the first few weeks. Bella now has a very good coat although as her skin does still have the odd flare up she will remain on a maintenance treatment for the rest of her life.Donate Now
