Rescue Coordinators

Looking for a Rescue Coordinator in your area? Most of the Regional West Highland White Terrier Clubs have their own rescue program staffed by volunteer club members. Check our list of local clubs, National Club Member-Led Independent groups and Westie friends that are helping in the rescue effort! 

PLEASE NOTE: Each Westie rescue organization is separate and has its own policies, rules and procedures. Please review these with the Rescue Coordinator(s) in your area.

Please do NOT use these contacts if you are looking to purchase a puppy. For breeder resources, visit the WHWTCA Breeder Resource page.
