Welcome to Mile High Weimaraner Rescue

Mile High Weimaraner Rescue (MHWR) is an organization operated soley by volunteers dedicated to the welfare of the Weimaraner breed. MHWR is a rescue group who operates on donations and the support of the Weimaraner Foundation Fund - Rescue Committee, which is part of the Weimaraner Club of America. When a Weimaraner is placed in a new home an adoption fee is required in order to help with the expenses of rehoming Weimaraners. Expenses incurred by rescue include: spaying, neutering, vaccinations, veterinary care, microchips, and heartworm testing. Expenses incurred locally by rescue include: advertising, collars, leashes, tags, crates, dog beds, books, administrative expenses, etc.

MHWR is located in the Denver, Colorado metropolitan area. MHWR does not place Weimaraners outside of a four hour drive from Denver. If you want to adopt a MHWR Weimaraner, you must come to the location where the Weimaraner is kept or arrange for transportation.

We do not have a facility to house the Weimaraners that are available for adoption. Available Weimaraners are kept in their own home, in a foster home, in a boarding kennel, or in a shelter until they can find their new home.

If you wish to adopt a Weim from our rescue group, you will need to travel to the location of the dog please. We mostly operate out of Denver, CO, however we have branches in Wichita, KS and Rapid City, SD.

Our Adoption Process:

The Adoption Process

We believe that finding the right Weim for you should be a thought-filled process and we want to match you up with the right friend for your family and situation. To start the process, fill our our online adoption application form AFTER downloading AND reading our adoption application packet.

Upon receipt of the application, a Mile High Weimaraner Rescue (MHWR) Volunteer will review the application and check your references. If all looks well with your application, a MHWR Volunteer will let you know if you are a good fit for a Weim. If there is not currently a dog available that matches what you are looking for, your name is kept on a list of possible adopters. If a match is thought to exist, a MHWR Volunteer will contact you.

MHWR is operated 100% by the help of volunteers. The volunteers spend their spare time helping Weims in need find new homes. Our volunteers have families, jobs, and dogs on their own that keep them very busy. They help when they can, so please be patient with our volunteers. If we don't get back to you in a timely fashion, don't hesitate to send a reminder email our way and we'll do what we can to get back to you. We do not have a 'shelter'. All dogs in need of homes are either in their surrendering home, a foster home, or at a boarding facility. As much as we want the dogs in rescue to be rehomed as quickly as possible, we all have time and area constraints that can sometimes slow the process down. Please know that we take rehoming Weims very seriously and want to make sure all of the dogs we place go to the right families. That can take time, so again, please be patient.

There is an adoption fee associated with the adoption. The fee varies based on age and condition of the dog. The average adoption fee is $200.00. All dogs (with the exception of puppies under six months of age) will be spayed or neutered, have a Home-Again or AVID micro-chip implanted, will be current on vaccines, tested for heartworms, and have a veterinary check.

If you want to adopt, why not try fostering a Weim in need of a home until a forever home can be found? It may give you and your family a better idea of what you are really looking for in a dog. See our How to Help page for more details.

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.
