shutterstock_94325647Great Lakes Weimaraner Rescue supports and provides recovery, care, rehabilitation and re-homing of Weimaraners in need across the Great Lakes region. No one individual is Great Lakes Weimaraner Rescue…several individuals work together as a collective and collaborative organization whose sole purpose is to assist Weimaraners in need.

We are all volunteers, many of us with full time jobs, families and animals of our own. We could not do what we do on a daily basis without an incredible network of dedicated volunteers and we can always use more. Many people who are unable to have dogs of their own for a variety of reasons or limitations; turn to volunteerism as a way to contribute to the rescue and help save weims in need.

The form below included questions to fill out so we can get a sense what you’d like to do and when you’re available to help. You do not need to be a current weim or dog owner – just have a love of animals and the willingness to work with a great network of volunteers throughout Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois and Canada.

As an FYI – Dogs that are received into GLWR’s program come from a variety of backgrounds and situations. Some are recoveries from various shelters. They may have arrived into the shelter as a stray and not reclaimed by their owner or the animal may have been surrendered to the facility by their owner. Most of the dogs that we receive into our Rescue program rarely come from abusive situations. They typically come from loving families that can no longer keep them due to a move, divorce, death in the family, etc…. Others come from families that just didn’t know what they were getting into when they bought a Weimaraner puppy!!

You can learn more about the breed at www.weimclubamerica.org or at www.akc.org. It’s also a good idea to visit the rescue’s website www.greatlakesweimrescue.com to see what we’re all about!
