About Weimaraner Rescue

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

 Ocassionally we can offer a dog to the right home, and they will come microchipped, sterilized, and vaccinated. 

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 Weimaraner to adopt, please contact us for the Adoption Form.  Adopting an adult dog is a very rewarding experience, but you should be prepared to invest time and effort into the adopted dog.  Just like a puppy, an adult dog needs time and effort invested into them so they can develop a bond. Our rescue dogs just deserve a second chance.

If you need to surrender your dog contact us and we will discuss this with you. 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 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.

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.
