Weimaraner Rescues In Alabama

There are currently two Weimaraner rescues that serve the state of Alabama.

Weimaraner Rescue of the South

The Weimaraner Rescue Of The South is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It was founded in 2002. The rescue serves Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and parts of Georgia and Louisiana.

You can help out the rescue by donating, which you can do in a variety of ways. The most common is donation by Paypal, where you can choose if you’d like to donate a one-time amount or a monthly recurring payment.

The rescue also accepts physical items such as crates, gift cards from pet stores, auction items and more. They have an Amazon wishlist, so you can support them this way as well.

WRS is always looking for volunteers – you can help in many ways! If you have car, you help by transporting the dogs from shelters to their foster families. You can help screen applications from prospective adopting families or individuals, conduct interviews and home visits.

Of course you can also help out by fostering rescued dogs. As a foster, you go through the same process as adoption applicants.

If you have more ideas on how you can help the rescue, please contact WRS via their contact form.

Adoption Application Process

If you’d like to adopt a Weimaraner from WRS, you need to be at least 21 years old. The adoption application process can take three to four weeks.

You will need to fill out the online adoption application form – provide details about yourself, your occupation, your family, housing situation, general lifestyle and habits, past and current pets, any vet references and a written permission from your landlord if you’re renting.

If you currently own any dogs, they must be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative. If you have a yard, it must have a physical fence – invisible fence is not enough.

Generally the rescue only adopts out to the areas mentioned above but in rare cases of exceptional dog ownership history and vet references, you might be able to adopt out of the area.

After you submit your application, the adoption coordinator will review it, perform reference checks and then will contact you to set up a phone interview and home visit.

Dogs aren’t adopted out on first-come first-served basis but the adoption commitee will recommend the most suitable dog for you based on the information you provided.

Adoption Costs

Weimaraner’s AgeAdoption Cost
Puppy (< 6 months)$375 + $100 refundable spay/neuter deposit
Youngsters + Adults$300
Seniors (9+) and Mixes$225

All rescued dogs are spayed or neutered, treated medically, vaccinated and microchipped.

I’ve always loved dogs, ever since I was a child. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to have one. My sister got a Weimaraner girl, Nelly, and I puppy-sit her often. That’s why I decided to start this blog and share what I’ve learned, about Nelly and the Weimaraner breed in general. Learn more about Dana.
