Rowan has been with her foster home for almost a week and you can see how happy she looks in the video on our Facebook page! She continues to heal from surgery; she is still having some pain, but her foster home is doing everything they can to make her comfortable during the healing process. Rowan is a huge fan of sleeping on couches and other soft things! Rowan will start heartworm treatment in a few weeks. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
It was a VERY busy weekend for WRS (we'll share updates over the coming days) but let's start Monday off with some super exciting news! Miss Rowan moved to a foster home! WRS is very fortunate to have a volunteer who owned a tripod Weim for years, and she's going to work with Rowan on her rehab, helping her build some much needed muscle mass to make her stronger. And, she's going to give Rowan some much needed love and care while she gets ready for her heartworm treatment. Rowan is a VERY sweet girl and we're thrilled that we were able to move her to a foster home so quickly. Please continue to keep Rowan in your thoughts and prayers!
A week ago, WRS introduced Rowan, who had been badly injured and had to have her leg amputated. It's been a week since surgery and Rowan is doing great. She is adjusting well and moving about on three legs. Rowan is a favorite amongst the vet staff; her favorite activity seems to be eating! The best news is that WRS has lined up a foster home for sweet Rowan once she is ready to be discharged. We will then begin preparing her for heartworm treatment. It will be quite a while before Rowan is ready for her forever home so we are not accepting applications for her adoption just yet. Any funds raised over the amount needed for Rowan's surgery will go toward her upcoming heartworm treatment -
On Tuesday, July 25th, WRS was contacted about a badly injured weim in a Tennessee shelter. Rowan needed WRS's help, and she needed it fast.  Volunteers quickly arranged to get Rowan the surgery she needed to save her life. Rowan's injuries were severe enough that the surgeon had no choice but to amputate her leg. However, Rowan is recuperating very well from surgery and will soon be moving to a foster home. Unfortunately, Rowan is heartworm positive and will have to undergo treatment once she is healthy enough. We'd like to thank everyone who donated to Rowan's vet bills; those funds will go toward her surgery and heartworm treatment - click here if you would like to donate!
After having a somewhat difficult day on Thursday post-surgery, Rowan was feeling much better on Friday! She's been eating well, getting up and down, barking, and wagging her tail. Just as importantly, the vet has been able to decrease the amount of pain meds she has been on without Rowen showing signs of pain or discomfort. Her recovery will continue to be closely monitored, but the vet is pleased with everything thus far. We have exceeded our goal in the fundraiser for Rowan's medical bills, but we have since learned that she is heartworm positive; any money not used on her amputation surgery will go to her heartworm treatment.

Rowan has made it through surgery. She’s now resting and we are focused on her immediate needs. The veterinarian who operated on Rowan said that she was hit by a car several days ago, possibly as long as a week ago. We hate to think that she’s been suffering all of this time. We also learned that Rowan is heartworm positive, but we will cross that bridge when she has recovered from surgery and is healthier. Please help us continue to help Rowan – her medical bills are going to be extensive. Donations of $5, $10, or $20 would be greatly appreciated and every penny will go to Rowan’s continued recovery. Thank you so much and we will continue to share updates on this sweet little girl.
WRS received a call late yesterday , Tuesday, July 25th, that there was a very sweet girl in very desperate need of out help; she had been hit by a car and was badly hurt. So, we jumped into action, and Rowan immediately became part of the WRS family. Unfortunately, the damage done to Rowan's leg is irreparable and she will have her leg amputated this morning. We will then focus on Rowan's long term recovery, but right now we need to get her stable and pain free. WRS is very grateful for your support, and all funds raised will be used for Rowan's care. We will post an update on Rowan this afternoon.

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.
