Atlanta Weimaraner Club Rescue

The Atlanta Weimaraner Club Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization. They work with Georgia shelters and other rescues and offer public education about the breed and how to be a responsible dog owner.

The AWCR don’t have any boarding facilities or kennels, everything is run on a foster care basis.

You can donate to the rescue via Paypal – you can choose whether you want to donate only one time or make a monthly recurring payment.

If you’d like a more hands-on approach, you can become a volunteer. Depending on your options, you can help with fundraising, events, conduct phone interviews and home visits of prospective adoptive families, transport of dogs from shelters and more.

The rescue is always looking for more foster families, so if you’d like to take on a Weim for a while until a forever home is found for them, do it! You will need to provide food, water, shelter, treats, regular vet checks and of course training.

If you’d like to become a foster, you need to follow the same procedures as adopting families. You will need to fill out the foster application form.

If sudden living conditions made it unable to keep your current Weim, AWCR is also accepting surrendered dogs. Please contact the rescue using the online form or their email.

Adoption Application Process

ACWR only accepts adoptive families who intend to keep their dog indoors. Weimaraners can usually live outside with no problems but if you plan on doing that, you should look elsewhere.

Out of state residents must be willing to travel to Atlanta to meet with the dog and get the dog if the adoption is successful as ACWR does not ship the dogs.

First you need to fill out the online adoption application form, where you need to describe your family, your housing situation, your lifestyle, any past and current pets and provide vet reference as well as landlord permission if you’re renting your place.

The volunteers will get back to you as soon as possible and will contact you to discuss your ideal dog with them in more detail. They will check your vet reference and then arrange a foster visit with the dog.

The rescue volunteers will perform a house visit to make sure your place is suitable for a Weimaraner. They prefer a fenced yard.

The adoption is not on a first-come first-served basis. Each dog is evaluated and the best fit is chosen based on your application, so make sure to give as much detail as possible. Even if you pick a dog from the available ones at the rescue, there is no guarantee you will get that particular dog.

If you already have a dog or dogs at home, they will all need to be spayed or neutered before you can bring your new Weim home. They also need to be up to their vaccinations and on a heartworm preventative.

Adoption Costs

Weimaraner’s AgeAdoption Cost
Puppy (< 12 months)$375
Adult (1 – 7 years)$275
Senior (7+ years)$175

All adoption fees go toward the rescue and all current and future dogs. The fees help with veterninary checks, supplies, medication and preventatives.

After everything goes well and you’re ready to take your new Weimaraner home, you will need to sign an adoption contract. There is a 30-day grace period, where you can return the dog to the rescue if you find out that they’re not a great fit after all.

In this grace period you will get a refund for the adoption fee minus $50 processing fee.

Weimaraner Rescue Of The South

The Weimaraner Rescue Of The South is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 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.
