Adoption Application Request

 Interested in adopting?

We at GLWR are committed to giving the dogs we rescue the best chance at a wonderful life.  To that end, we ask you to know these things:
1.  The application process is not instantaneous.  We are all volunteers and we move things along as quickly as possible.  We need to get to know you through the application process just like we get to know the dogs through our intake process.  It is in the best interest of all involved that this be done correctly.
2.  We do not hold dogs.  Approved adopters have their choice of appropriate dogs for their situation.  If you see a dog on the website that you would like, we cannot guarantee that that dog will still be available once your application is approved.
3.  Note to Families with children:   Weimaraners are large, energetic, demanding sporting dogs and can have strong prey drives.  They require lifelong mental and physical exercise as well as training.  All breeds of rescued dogs require even more time, training and patience than the typical dog and GLWR Weims are no exception.
If you are interested in Adoption, Please send a email to request an application to: applications@greatlakesweimrescue.com

Who We Are

All-Volunteer Group

Great Lakes Weimaraner Rescue is an all-volunteer group and our mission is the rescue and placement of Weimaraners in the Great Lakes Region.  We work with networks of shelters in several states as well as with owners needing to relinquish their dog.  We are determined bunch of people, but we couldn’t do anything without your support.

Dogs Come First

We’ve stopped counting the hours of sleep lost with sick dogs and the miles driven to spring others from shelters.  The volunteers of GLWR sacrifice daily to give each dog a chance to enjoy a good life.  Your generous assistance with driving, gas cards, phone work, fundraising  and dog care makes it possible for us to come to the aid of hundreds of dogs.

No-Kill  Philosophy

GLWR adheres to a no-kill philosophy, and we will never euthanize a dog to make space for another.  The waiting list for Weims in need never ends and we do all we can to take dogs in before they, well, cease to need us anymore. Occasionally a dog dies before we can take it in – haunting our dreams and fueling our determination to never lose another.

Happy, Healthy Dogs

From the moment a dog is part of GLWR, it’s medical and emotional needs are assessed and provided for.  We believe in doing everything possible to help dogs make the transition to their “forever” home.  Medical costs are our largest expense and your donations allow us to address health issues without delay.

Why We Do It

We are here for the Weimaraners and the Weimaraners alone.  Our reward lies not in the accolades of being “rescuers”, but in the gratitude we see in the bright, loving eyes of dogs that once were sad, dejected and without hope.  With your help, we’ve given them a chance to experience the warmth of a family that will love and care for them.

Our Promise to You

We exist solely on the generous donations of those who love these majestic “gre
