About Weimaraner Rescue

The header photo is Zena, surrendered for rehoming in Dec 2011 and rehomed in Feb 2012.

Our rescue/rehomed Weimaraners are available to the right home for an adoption fee and they will come microchipped, sterilized, fully vaccinated C5, and with flea and heartworm treatment as well as a full vet health check.

A very important aspect of looking after this breed is rehoming, rescue and adoption. If you would like to be put on our waiting list for a deserving Weimaraner please contact us for the Adoption Form.  Adopting any adult dog is a very rewarding experience but you must be prepared to invest time and effort into the adopted dog.  No new dog will learn the rules and routines of your household without clear instruction.  Getting a rescue dog is not an opportunity to get a free dog, a cheap dog, a trained dog, or a hassle free 'instant' dog.  Just like a puppy, an adult needs time and effort invested into them so they can develop a bond and learn what your expectations are.  Our rescue dogs are not 'damaged', broken or faulty dogs.  They are not second best options.  They are just as good as your existing dog.  They are homeless through no fault of their own, or because they have been brought into unsuitable homes in the first place.  They are dogs that deserve a second chance.  Taking on an adult rescue dog, just like the purchase of a puppy, is a commitment; and a very rewarding one. 

If you need to surrender your dog contact us and we will discuss this with you as a last resort.  We will discuss the health, temperment and habits of your dog so that we can develop a clear picture of your dog's needs.  We are very careful with where we place our rehomed dogs.  As we are a not for profit group that exists to help this breed we do ask for a surrender fee to be paid upon the surrender of your dog. This helps to cover vet costs, petrol, phone calls and food associated in the rehoming of your dog.

As part of the service we often make home visits to help the dog settle into their new home. We are happy to follow up with more visits should it be required. We are in frequent contact with the adoptive homes, and lines of communication are open at all times for questions and queries.

Our rescue Weimaraners are available to the right home for an adoption fee. This will contribute towards the vet check and medical/behavioural checks the dog will undergo before rehoming.

To this end we need foster homes in Perth.  'Fostering' is the temporary care of a dog until a permanent home is found. The club covers ALL costs related to the care of the foster dog.  Please contact us using the form below if you are interested in being a Foster Carer.

How YOU can help:

• If you think your existing Weim is open to it – register with the club as a foster home. Fostering is the care of a dog on a temporary basis until a permanent home is found. Be aware that the rescue Weimaraner may be unwell, or nervous. However; fostering and adopting is THE most rewarding experience and well worth all the work and effort involved.
• If you have any dog beds/bedding, or dog food that is no longer required you could donate that to the club’s rescue program.
• If you know of anyone who would make great owners or who are looking to rescue a Wei on a permanent basis – get them in touch with the club.
• If you are prepared to run fundraising events/programs specifically for rescue that would be greatly appreciated. Rescue and re homing requires funds for vet visits, medication, and some-times interstate transport.

Prospective owners of a rescue Weimaraner in WA will be screened.
It is our policy to match a dog with the right owners. Our first concern is for the welfare and well being of the dog requiring a new home.
If you are interested in taking in a rescue Weimaraner on a permanent basis, or as a foster carer contact
the club.
