Wonder Weims Rescue

Wonder Weims Rescue (WWR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in St. Louis, Missouri. The rescue serves the states of Missouri and Nebraska, and surrounding states as well.

WWR is a foster-based rescue, and they do not have any boarding facilities. As such, they are always looking for new foster families. The rescue will cover any medical procedures, all dog food, treats and will provide a crate.

Other ways you can help out:

  • Donate – one time/monthly
  • Transport of dogs
  • Helping out at fundraisers

You will need to fill out the volunteer application form. If you’re applying to be a foster, you will need to provide information about your housing situation, your current pets and your experience with dogs and/or rescuing in general.

The rescue also accepts surrendered dogs, but will first try to find a solution. Depending on your situation, there are other options – make sure to contact the rescue, and they will give you advice on how to proceed.

Adoption Application Process

To start the application process, you will need to fill out the application form on the website. You will need to specify details about yourself and any other household members. You can also state your preference for the adopted dog (sex, age).

Current pets must be up-to-date on their vaccinations and be on a heartworm preventative. In addition to this, you will need to describe your housing situation, and you will need a landlord’s permission if you’re renting.

If you’d like to speed up the application review process, you can upload a copy of your current vet records. You can adopt from Wonder Weims Rescue even if you don’t live in Missouri or Nebraska, but you have to travel as the rescue doesn’t ship dogs.

The adoption coordinator will process your application withing 48 hours. They will check your vet references, and then they will contact you for a phone interview.

Eventually you get to meet the dog and if it’s a good fit and everything is in order, you will sign an adoption contract. If for some reason the adoption isn’t working out, the dog has to be returned to the rescue.

Adoption Costs

The adoption fees at Wonder Weim Rescue can be paid by cash, PayPal, money order or check.

Here are the adoption costs for purebred Weimaraners:

Weimaraner’s AgeAdoption Cost
< 12 months$425
13 months – 4 years 11 months$350

Adoption costs for Weimaraner mixes:

Dog’s AgeAdoption Cost

Adoption costs for special needs dogs are determined on a case-by-case basis.

All adopted dogs are up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for heartworm and spayed/neutered.

Heartland Weimaraner Rescue

Heartland Weimaraner Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization residing in Yukon, Oklahoma. They also serve the states of Missouri and Kansas, although they are willing to adopt out of these states as long as you can provide transport.

Unfortunately, their site seems to be a little neglected. While the option to donate and buy items from their Amazon wishlist is still there, any application forms can’t be found as the site returns a 404 not found error on both volunteer and adoption application.

Adoption Application Process

Unfortunately, as with the volunteer application, the adoption application form is nowhere to be found as well.

I tried contacting the rescue via their Facebook page, but considering there have been no updates for months, I’m not confident I’d get a reply. If I do, I will edit this post!

Contact Information:

Make sure to visit the rescues’ websites and social media post for up-to-date information on Weims available for adoption. If you know of any other Weimaraner rescues in Missouri, let me know!

Don’t forget to check websites of general rescues in your area, there’s a chance there will be a Weimaraner or a Weimaraner mix there as well.

I’ve always loved dogs, ever since I was a child, but I wasn’t allowed to have one. I dog-sit my sister's Weimaraner often. I decided to start this blog and share what I’ve learned about Nelly, the Weimaraner breed, and dogs in general from scientific papers and journals and my own personal experience.
