SURRENDER

At  LWR we know how difficult it can be to let go of your dog.  Admitting you can not care for your Weimaraner may be difficult, but it is also the most selfless thing you can do for your dog. You can be assured that we will carefully select the right home for your dog – a forever home that will provide everything your dog needs.

Please be advised that we can not take in dogs with aggression and a recorded bite history.  Our adoptive families are looking for a friendly pet that the whole family can enjoy.  As a rescue we can not be responsible for putting a dog into a family’s home that may hurt someone.  Often times the best place for a dog with aggressive issues is with you.   We recommend you seek the help of a reputable behaviorist.  We can help you locate one if you like.  Please go to the “Contact Us” page and send us a message.

There are many reasons why you may have to find your dog a new home.  Regardless of the reason, we want to help.If after careful thought you decide that you can absolutely not keep your weimaraner, please complete our Surrender/Intake form below.

This form provides us with information about your Weim’s living arrangements physical traits, personality, and habits. A phone interview will then be conducted for us to ask any additional questions.   At this time, we will also provide information about the rescue and what is involved.  We do not have a physical kennel.  All dogs that we take in are placed in responsible foster homes until they are evaluated and matched to an applicant for their forever homes. The information on this form helps us to determine the best possible fit when looking for a foster or a new home for your Weim.

Before we can take in your Weim, you will need to provide us with all the vet records you have on your dog including those which confirm the dog is up to date on vaccinations (distemper, rabies, bordatella), heartworm tested with a negative result, spayed or neutered.  If your dog is not spayed or neutered and you can not afford to have the surgery done, the rescue will pay to have your dog spayed or neutered once it is brought into our program.

The dog will remain in your home until we have located the right foster for him.  We have a limited number of foster homes available and Weims that have no owner or home are given first priority.

Once your dog has been turned into the rescue, he will not be returned.  You must put alot of thought into this decision and do what’s best for your dog.

If you cannot complete this form, or in case of an emergency, please email our intake coordinator at  intake@louisvilleweimrescue.com or call – Barbara at 614-375-4787.
