Oregon Weimaraner Rescue

The Oregon Weimaraner Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Portland. The rescue is completely foster-based and has no kennel or boarding facilities. The rescue serves the states of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.

There are a few ways you can help out:

  • Donate – you can do so via PayPal (one time/monthly recurring) or a check
  • Amazon Smile – when you shop with Amazon, Amazon donates to the rescue at no additional cost to you
  • Volunteer – if you live close enough, you can volunteer for transporting dogs, home inspections, or taking photos for the rescue
  • Foster


Fostering is one of the pillars when it comes to rescues. If you’d like to foster a Weimaraner, you will need to fill out an online waiver, which is also used for people who would like to volunteer other than fostering.

You will have to provide information about your previous foster experience if any, any current pets currently living in your house and any experience with training.

The rescue will be in charge of any medical decisions and fees, while you will need to provide shelter, training, food, and love to your new temporary companion.


Surrendering your beloved Weimaraner is no easy decision. The rescue will help you with everything that needs to be done, including any solutions if the circumstances allow.

Surrendering your pup won’t cost you anything, you can fill out the surrender resume here. The rescue will get in touch with you and discuss any details. If your dog is suitable for adoption, the regular adoption process will take place.

The new family will come meet the dog and if all goes well, you will sign a release of ownership to the rescue. If for any reason the new family isn’t suitable, the dog will be returned to the rescue.

Adoption Application Process

There are two ways you can apply:

  • general application
  • dog-specific application

In case there are no Weimaraners available at the rescue, you can apply for a general adoption and the rescue will file your application. Once there is an available dog you’re interested in, you need to contact the rescue and mention you already have an application.

With dog-specific application, the rescue gathers enough applicants to choose from. Each is sorted by their suitability, so you really should be thorough in your application.

A phone interview will be scheduled with the best candidates. Once one family is chosen, they will set up a meet & greet with the dog. Adoptive families need to be able to travel to meet the dog, as the rescue does not ship dogs.

After that, the volunteers from the rescue will perform a home inspection to make sure it’s suitable for your new Weim. If all goes well, you will sign a placement contract.

Adoption Costs

There is a flat fee of $400 for all adoptable Weimaraners. Adoption costs cover vet care, spaying/neutering, teeth cleaning and other things that the dogs may need.

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 Oregon, 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.
