During the past year, Tarheel Weimaraner Rescue has experienced many joys and, yes, a few sorrows.  We have been fortunate enough to have been able to help over 100 dogs who needed a new living situation for whatever reason, bringing many back to good physical and mental health before finding them their new forever homes. 

We did not do this alone!!!  It would be impossible to name all the wonderful people who have assisted us along the way, but you know who you are. 
We have received an amazing number of donations (some recurring monthly) which enabled us to provide spays/neuters, heartworm treatments, vaccinations, surgeries, training, etc.
We have also received monumental assistance with identifying dogs in need, fostering, transportation, and, in some instances, working tirelessly bringing loose dogs to safety.  

Many of you help enormously by spreading the word about our organization and the dogs who are in need of rescuing.
Many of you are professionals who never say no when we need a place for a dog to stay on the spur of the moment, emergency treatment, or advice with any number of problems that occur. 
ALL of you, have huge hearts and love for animals.  
We cannot thank you enough.

Below are some of our successes, but we have many who are still waiting.

As always, your donations mean so much and are greatly appreciated.
We thank you in advance!

  • To provide a kind and loving home for each Weimaraner that enters our program;
  • To educate and inform the public about Weimaraners, and to provide information on care and training (including counseling owners on solving behavior problems) that might otherwise necessitate the owner giving up the dog;
  • To provide education to new and prospective Weimaraner owners as well as continue to expand our own education;
  • To help owners be responsible for their pet (if they must give it up for adoption) by advising them on how to do so correctly and carefully, and to take into our foster program those dogs that need immediate help;
  • To handle with the utmost kindness all of the dogs entrusted to our care, from their day of induction into the rescue system through their placements in their final homes and afterwards through our follow-up program;
  • To provide a safe and kind end to life for animals who, through abuse, infirmity, or old age, cannot be placed in a new environment.
