Carolina Westie Rescue 

A Tribute to:

Linda and Bob Rand, Founders of CWR

Approximately 8 years ago Carolina Westie Rescue was founded by Wilmington residents Linda and Bob Rand, mostly as an outgrowth of their love of Westies, Linda’s involvement with the West Highland White Terrier Club of America, and recognizing that there was not a Westie Rescue situated within and for North Carolina.  The Rands did this without being bankrolled by anyone, but did all of the work using their own money and spending a lot of their own time.  They quickly became contacts for many people who knew of Westies that needed rescue, and built a solid reputation.  “Just get the dog” was their motto. 

We would like to thank Bob and Linda Rand for their tireless devotion and dedication in their efforts to save the “little white dog”.  Furthermore, we are glad to say the Rands are still helping us with our rescue efforts in any way they can.  We are indeed very grateful.
