About Our Rescue Group:

Michigan Weimaraner Rescue, Inc. is a not for profit, federal 501 (c) 3 charitable organization founded in 1993 by Chris Conklin, our state coordinator and director. With the tireless help of 70 plus volunteers who are dedicated to finding forever homes for displaced Weimaraners, we fostered and placed 86 dogs in 2004. We rely 100% on grants, private contributions, and adoption donations to care for the dogs currently in our rescue; all donations are welcome and needed. All of our rescues are spayed or neutered, currant on Rabies vaccination, heartworm tested and treated if necessary. They also receive monthly heartworm preventative and are microchipped before being placed.

All Weims entering our program are fostered with MWR for a minimum of two weeks. During this period the dogs are evaluated and temperament tested by Chris, who has over 22 years experience as an all breed dog trainer, and 16 years specializing in Weimaraner Behavior. We truly
believe that by taking our time to get to know each dog as an individual,we can assure both the adoptive families and our Weims the best match for lifelong companionship. Our goal is to not only save Weims,but to find the perfect "forever home" for each dog. The time taken in choosing the right match means you will not only welcome your new Weim's
distinctive personality but will be able to enjoy it to the upmost.

Michigan Weimaraner Rescue, Inc. operates under the auspices of the Weimaraner Club of America Rescue Committee, according to guidelines established by the Weimaraner Club of America and the American Kennel Club

Mission Statement: To find suitable placements, without profit, for adoptable Weimaraners in need that have been relinquished by individuals or organizations. To provide a source of public education of the Weimaraner breed and encourage responsible breeding practices and consumer education.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
