Sweet Miss Raine has come a long way since moving into her foster home. In addition to putting on a few needed pounds, Raine is learning some manners and how to play appropriately with other dogs. She has visited the local dog park, made some new friends, and did awesome! She loves playing with her foster sister and would thrive in a home with a younger dog rather than a senior; she's high energy and very puppy-like! If interested in adopting Raine, please submit an application at www.weimrescue.com. We do not know how Raine is around cats and we would not recommend her for a home that currently has small children -again, she's high energy and still working on her manners!

Raine had a great weekend at her foster home. Raine is a super snuggly girl who appears to be housebroken, tolerates the crate, and is learning how to appropriately interact with other dogs. It's very obvious that Raine is still very much a puppy at heart and was never taught good canine social skills; other dogs think she comes across as pretty obnoxious at first. She means well, but just was never taught good manners. Her foster mom is working on this and we expect to see awesome improvements in the coming weeks. If interested in adopting Raine, please submit an application at www.weimrescue.com.

Happy little Raine (R) is settling into her foster home and quickly becoming buddies with Mollie (L), the resident weim (and WRS alumnus). Raine has already mastered the doggie door and is working on her crate training. Raine is high energy, very social, and loves to play ball. She plays a little too rough, but her foster home is working with her to learn manners and basic obedience. If interested in adopting Raine, please submit an application at www.weimrescue.com.

Raine has completed her treatment for mange and is now out of boarding and into a foster home! She is already having the best time playing with the other dogs in the home and we look forward to getting updates on Raine in the coming days! If interested in adopting Raine, please submit an application at www.weimrescue.com!

Just a month ago, Raine was mostly hairless, covered in scabs, and had a terrible case of mange. Now, she's gorgeous and ready for a foster or forever home! Raine is less than 2 years old and very sweet and affectionate. While she apparently has had some previous obedience training, she will need more work in that area. If interested in fostering or adopting Raine, please submit an application at www.weimrescue.com. She appears to do well with other dogs; we do not know how she is with cats.

Happy Valentine's Day! Look at our sweet Raine and the difference that 3 weeks of proper medical care can make! Raine came to WRS with a terrible case of mange and, no doubt, had felt miserable for a quite a while. Now, she has responded extremely well to treatment and is feeling much, MUCH better! Because she has responded so well, this precious girl will be ready for a foster or adoptive home far sooner than we originally thought. Raine is less than two years old, incredibly sweet and has some previous obedience training, although she is still a silly, playful girl. If interested in fostering or adopting Raine, please submit an application at www.weimrescue.com. Raine appears to do well with other dogs, but we have no idea how she is with cats.

Raine came to WRS two weeks ago from a Tennessee shelter, where she was an unclaimed stray suffering from a horrible case of demodex (mange). She is responding extremely well to treatment and is already looking much better. Raine is a very sweet, very young adult who has had some basic training, as you can see in the video. It will still be a few weeks before Raine is ready for a foster or adoptive home. You can see a full listing of all our available rescues at www.weimrescue.com

Our rescue efforts continue at a frantic pace. In the first three weeks of 2017, we've taken in 6 weimaraners. We expect 3 more intakes in the next week. We are getting dangerously close to suspending our intake until we're able to move some dogs into foster homes. Unfortunately, most of our 2017 rescues are not medically cleared for fostering. Three of the six are heartworm positive and will need to complete treatment before they can be fostered. Then, we have Raine, who came to us this weekend. Raine is no more than 1.5yo, weighs just over 50lbs, and has a horrible case of demodex (mange) that has been untreated for a very long time; we can't imagine how miserable she has felt. We have her on medications to ease her itchiness and start the healing process, but it will take many weeks before she is ready for a foster or adoptive home. Despite all this sweet girl has been through, Raine is very sweet, affectionate, and even knows some basic training. We'll update Raine's status as she travels her road to recovery.

Hunter is not our only new intake this weekend. Meet Raine, who is making her way to WRS from a Tennessee shelter. We'll post more about her once we have her checked in and examined by our vet. And, again, none of this would be possible if it weren't for our wonderful Weim Wagon volunteers, who hit the road and get these dogs from some of the most remote places of our coverage area so they can get the care they need!

About Weimaraner Rescue of the South

About Our Rescue Group...

Weimaraner Rescue of the South (WRS) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to saving Weimaraners in need in Alabama, Mississippi, and parts of Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia and placing them into loving forever homes. We have been saving Weimaraners throughout our footprint for more than 10 years.

Our priority is to rescue Weimaraners who find themselves in animal controls and high-kill shelters in Alabama, Mississippi, and parts of Tennessee, Louisiana, and Georgia. All Weimaraners in our care are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical issues they might have including but not limited to heartworm disease, orthopedic concerns, and vision issues. Our efforts are funded by adoption fees and donations from "Weim-loving" people like you.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are not a shelter, therefore, we are not in one central location. We place our dogs in loving foster homes throughout the deep South so we can learn about each one enabling us to adopt them to their perfect family. Alabama hosts the majority of our rescues although we do have foster homes throughout our Southern footprint. Our dogs are not available for visitors unless an adoption application has been approved for them specifically.

Our Adoption Process...

Are you ready to adopt? Make sure you do your homework on this breed before taking this step as this is not the breed for the average household and you must be committed to their needs as well as your own. Still want to add a Weimaraner to your family? Great! Fill out a WRS Adoption Application to begin the adoption process with us. You will be contacted by one of our volunteers to begin the approval process which includes a veterinary background check, phone interview, and home visit.

ADOPTION FEES: EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2016 OUR ADOPTION FEE FOR PUPPIES 6 MONTHS AND YOUNGER IS $375 WITH A $100 REFUNDABLE SPAY/NEUTER CONTRACT, $300 FOR ADULT WEIMARANERS, SENIORS AND MIXED BREEDS $225. This includes microchip, spay/neuter, and Heartworm prevention. All dogs have been fully vetted and treated for any medical issues of which we are aware.
