Thinking about adopting a Weim?
Want to know if you have what it takes?

Here is a great article for potential adoptive families to read to determine if they are ready to take the plunge and adopt a Weimaraner. Weims are loving, wonderful pets, but they are not a great match for everyone. Click Here to see if you are up for the challenge of being a new Weim owner!!

Our primary goal is to match the personality of the dog with the personality of the adoptive family, resulting in a permanent and loving home for the dog.  Our rescues are NOT adopted on a first come, first serve basis.  Applicants cannot 'HOLD' a dog with down payments.  On average, it takes 3 -4 weeks to complete the application process, but it may take longer to find the right fit for your family.  If you are looking for a young female Weim who is both child and cat friendly, your adoption request will take longer to fill.  We take great measures to pair the right Weim with your family and lifestyle, hopefully guaranteeing a successful placement.  We feel the right Weimaraner is worth waiting for! 

Each dog offered for adoption has been spayed or neutered, is current on all shots, has been heartworm tested and is on heartworm prevention.

An adoption fee of $300 is required for adult dogs.  While rarely available, puppies under the age of 6 months have an adoption fee of $375, plus a $100 refundable spay/neuter deposit.  Senior dogs (age 9+) have an adoption fee of $225. These fees help cover the cost of veterinary care and other related expenses.

Weimaraner Rescue of the South is a strong advocate of responsible pet ownership which includes and is not limited to: monthly heartworm prevention, annual vaccinations, and spay/neuter of all current pets. Any person/persons applying to adopt who does not meet the responsible pet ownership requirements set forth by Weimaraner Rescue of the South will have their application for adoption denied. Weimaraner Rescue of the South rarely places dogs into homes without a fenced yard.
