Who We Are


The Westie Walk started out as simply a group of Westie owners in Indianapolis. One day while walking in a northside neighborhood, several Westie owners converged in the same location. We started talking about getting together and the next thing you know, there was a Westie Walk planned!

It started with just a few friends on a block, then expanded to other blocks in the same neighborhood, then to other areas of Indianapolis.

After our first successful Westie Walk, we decided to expand to an annual event and since many of us were volunteers for Westie Rescue of Indiana we decided to turn the event into its signature yearly fundraiser. Our first year brought out 23 Westies by word of mouth only and in our third year we jumped up to 165 (and a few wannabees!)  We're on a roll!
