can someone out there help

we are searching for a westie and a wheaton for our family, we would love to rescue a male of either/both breeds

we are a family of four, with a teenage daughter and a toddler boy

we are in northern new jersey

how do i go about this?

we bought our last two purebred babies, a westie and a jack russell, but love the idea of a rescue :confused:

Hi there and welcome to the board. I applaud you for wanting to rescue. Try looking on www.petfinder.org. Here's a link for a Westie rescue group: http://www.westieclubamerica.com/rescue/ and here's one for Wheatens: http://www.scwtca.org/rescue.html

Good luck! :thumbs up

The Westie Rescue in Canada does not accept applications from outside of Canada (they already have a waiting list). You might want to check through Petfinder.org to see if there are any listed of the breeds you are looking for.
