Are you looking to adopt a Weimaraner and you’re located in Arkansas? I researched all Weimaraner rescues serving the state of Arkansas. There may be other breed non-specific rescues that may also house Weimaraners, so make sure you check those out too if there are currently no Weims in specialized rescues.

You can always also check out Weimaraner rescues in neighboring states, as some do adopt out of state! Check out my Weimaraner Rescue Directory for your state/country!

Arkansas Weimaraner Rescue

Arkansas Weimaraner Rescue was established in 2000 and is a 503(c)(3) non-profit organization. The rescue is based in Fayetteville and seems to accept adoptions out of state. Between the years 2020 and 2021 they successfully found forever homes for 348 Weimaraners, and so far this year they have adopted out 37 dogs.

AWR has no boarding facility, it’s an all-volunteer organizations and the dogs are placed in foster homes or boarding facility like Dog Watch.

You can support the rescue by donating – you can do so via Venmo or a secure Bloomerang widget, which is a fundraising platform for non-profits. You will need to input your credit card information. You can do one time or a recurring monthly payment.

You can also choose to sponsor an adoption by paying for an adoption fee. You will need to get in touch with the rescue first via the email I listed below or by using the contact form on their website.

Another way to support the rescue is to shop with Amazon Smile – Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total to the charity or non-profit of your choice. Arkansas Weimaraner Rescue also has an Amazon wishlist, so feel free check it out!

The rescue is always looking for new foster families and volunteers, especially volunteers providing transport of dogs across the state. You can also sign up to volunteer at fundraising events. If you’d like to foster, you will need to fill out the foster application form. All application forms can be found on this page.

The rescue will take care of any medical costs, spaying/neutering, dog supplies like collars and leashes. All you need to do as a foster is to teach the dog basic obedience and pay for their food.

If you have to make the difficult decision of giving your dog away, AWR also accepts surrendered dogs. Make sure to contact the rescue first to discuss your options before filling out the surrender form.

Adoption Application Process

You will need to fill out the adoption application form on the Arkansas Weimaraner Rescue website. You will need to write what experience you have with dogs (if any), if you have any current pets, who’s your vet, the details about your household and the place you live in. If you are renting your place, you will need a permission from your landlord to own a Weimaraner.

You will need to provide two non-family contacts as a reference. You can specify what type of dog you’d like or if the rescue has any adoptable dogs, you can choose from them. Dogs aren’t adopted out on first come first served basis, your chosen Weim must fit with your family and lifestyle.

Please allow ample time for the rescue to contact you, usually you should hear back within two weeks at most.

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.
