Who We Are
Weimaraner Rescue of the South has been operating for over ten years as a 501c3 non profit all volunteer non profit organization existing for the sole purpose of taking in homeless and abandoned Weimaraners and finding them appropriate and forever homes. This is no easy task.
Weimaraners are not the proper choice for the majority of people who purchase those adorable grey puppies with sapphire blue eyes from the ads from the local newspapers. Too soon, they grow up large, energetic and destructive while everyone is away at work and school. When no time is found to enroll them in obedience class to teach their FAMILY how to train them, they can be a menace and heartache in the home, not the loving, playful dog that those who understand and love the breed know them to be. They are sent to the backyard into a world of loneliness, where they quickly learn to climb fences to find human companionship, or are taken to area shelters, where if we are not alerted quickly enough, and someone doesn't come along fast enough to adopt them, could be euthanized for being the sporting dog and human companion they were genetically bred to be. All the while, the classified ads continue to be full of those cute blue eyed "Weimaraner pups, first shots, dew claws removed".
We have Weims from puppies to seniors, but no matter how many we find wonderful homes for, we never seem to run out of wonderful dogs
who are in need of forever homes. Our seniors are so special. Can you imagine taking a senior member of your family to a shelter because you are having a younger member come to live with you? Well, that's what happens to dogs. People will have dogs for 8 or 9 years, then decide it's time for a puppy, and get rid of that wonderful 9 year old dog who knows all his manners, and can teach the newcommer the rules and regulations, gentleness, keep him company while the family goes about their business away from the home, and just needs a safe place to lay his weary body, and be loved. These dogs who are adopted give so much to their new families, and the people say they wouldn't take anything for the time, however short, is spent with the seniors they adopt. So think about adopting a senior. You'll be suprised at the love you receive back.
ADOPTION FEES: OUR ADOPTION FEE IS $375 FOR PUPPIES, $275 FOR ADULT WEIMARANERS, SENIORS & MIXED BREEDS $175. This includes microchip, spay/neuter,and HW prevention. All dogs have been fully vetted & treated for any medical issues of which we are aware.
Your contributions are always welcome and are so vital to our existence. We take Paypal for your convenience. Contributions of your time whether it be in home visits, transport, and especially foster care are greatly appreciated. In order to foster, you must yourself go through the same interview process as an adopting family. Just visit our homepage at www.weimrescue.com to fill out a foster application.
All OF OUR DOGS ARE LOCATED AT DIFFERENT FOSTER HOMES ALL THROUGHOUT THE DEEP SOUTH. THEY ARE NOT IN ONE LOCATION. Alabama hosts the majority of the rescues, with Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi also opening their homes to our rescues. Dogs will not be visited until you are approved for adoption. Please fill out an adoption application at www.weimrescue.com to begin the adoption process with WRS.
READY TO ADOPT? Make sure you do your homework on this breed before taking this step. This is not the breed for the average household, and you must be committed to their needs as well as your own. Still want to add a Weimaraner to your family? GREAT! FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION at www.weimrescue.com. You will be contacted fairly quickly for an interview and home visit.
