Arizona Weimaraner Rescue

The Arizona Weimaraner Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer-run organization based in Phoenix, Arizona. It was founded in 1982 and since then thousands of dogs have been rescued and adopted. The rescue currently only serves full time Arizona residents.

You can support AZWR by placing one time donation in selected amount. All donations are used for medical treatments (spay/neuter, vacccinations, etc.) and food for the dogs.

The rescue is also registered with Amazon Smile, so by shopping at Amazon, you will donate to the rescue at no additional cost to you. AZWR also have their own shop with a few products that help take care of your dogs. All proceeds help the rescued dogs with medical treatment and supplies.

If you’re more of a ‘hands-on’ person, you can help out by signing up to be a foster parent. All you need to do is fill out the application (.docx) format and then upload it in the contact form on the foster page.

Fostering a dog can last from a couple of weeks to a few months as it really depends on the needs of the individual dog.

Adoption Application Process

If you’d like to adopt a dog from the Arizona Weimaraner Rescue, you need to fill out and send the application form (.docx format) first. You will need to describe your living conditions, members of your family, past and current pets and specify what kind of dog you’d prefer. You will also need a referral from your vet (if you have one) and a permission from your landlord if you rent your place.

After submitting the application, you will need to pay a $25 application fee via Paypal or you can print out your application and send it with a check via mail. The fee is non-refundable and your application is valid for 4 months after submitting.

Once your application has been processed (which can take 1 to 2 weeks), the rescue volunteers will contact you by phone and ask you some other questions and you can schedule a home visit.

The dogs aren’t adopted out on a first come first serve basis but each dog is evaluated to match with their new family. Once a suitable Weim is found for you, the volunteers will contact you and you will set up a date to meet the dog.

If everything goes smoothly, you will only need to pay the adoption fee and sign the adoption contract and then you can take your new pup home!

Adoption Costs

There is a flat adoption fee of $450, but be aware that if you’re adopting a puppy, the adoption fee might be higher. The adoption fee pays for medical treatments like spaying/neutering, vaccinations, tests and others.

Tickled Pink Weimaraner Rescue

The Tickled Pink Weimaraner Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It serves the Southwest of US and rescues not only Weimaraners but other dogs in need as well, often terminally ill or with special needs.

You can support TPWR by donating via Paypal (you can choose one time or recurring monthly). Every donation helps with taking care of the dogs – medical tests, treatments, spaying/neutering and other things that need to be done in order to successfully adopt out a dog.

Since TPWR is 100% volunteer based, they’re always looking for volunteers. You can fill out the volunteer application form, where you can specify which job you’d like to take on (transport of dogs, fundraising, promoting/outreach, communication with fosters and adoptive families, walking and socializing rescued dogs and more).

TPWR is currently looking for new foster homes, especially around Albuquerque (New Mexico) and Phoenix (Arizona) but I’m sure they will appreciate any foster family willing to take on a rescue Weim in both states. You will need to fill out the foster application form, including your occupation, your past and present experience with pets, details about your household, reference from your vet, written permission from your landlord if you’re renting, etc.

TPWR will help with any costs for medical bills and basic care of fostered pups.

Definitely keep an eye on TPWR Facebook page as they share dogs in need of fostering and adoption, as well as any updated on pups in their care.
