Westies come into our care for various reasons, and at various ages, we care for them in our own homes, provide veterinary care wherever necessary, give lots of love and attention, training and socialising skills, until they are ready for rehoming.
We have a lovely dedicated team of helpers, all with many years of experience in caring for these wonderful dogs and we all feel very privileged to help these wonderful Westies gain a new start in life.
Animals in distress was formed in 1981 by Mrs Georgina Lang, Mrs Eileen Hunt and Mrs Muriel Sellick, who looked after dogs for people who were going into hospital. Their rescue work increased and a small office and shop were opened in a garage in Ellacombe, Torquay.
The ANIMALS IN DISTRESS RESCUE CENTRE cares for and re-homes unwanted domestic animals. The Centre was opened in 1994 and over one thousand animals have been re-homed each year.
Animals come to the Rescue Centre for a variety of reasons including bereavement, illness, relationship breakdown, financial reasons and sadly, cruelty and neglect. The policy of the Charity is never to turn away an animal in distress and never to have an animal put to sleep unless, on veterinary advice, it is too ill or dangerous to be re-homed.
Every effort is taken to ensure that prospective owners find the right pet for them. Normally home checks are carried out by volunteer home visitors before any animal leaves the Centre followed by a further check weeks later to ensure all is well. Most animals are checked by our veterinary surgeon before they leave and all cats and dogs are microchipped and vaccinated. Cats and Dogs are neutered before re-homing.
