“Your volunteer application has been submitted successfully.”


  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • If you choose yes, after submitting this form please go to the foster section and complete the online foster application and volunteer waiver.
  • LWR needs volunteers to drive 40-70 miles to move a Weim from its current location to its foster or adoptive home. A transport coordinator will send out emails requesting volunteers for a certain date, time, and leg. You can respond if you are able to drive one of the legs.
  • Part of the application process to adopt a Weim involves a visit from an LWR representative to the home of a potential adopter to be sure the home is Weim-safe, Weim-ready, and also to meet the family and their pets, if any. Travel involved is usually 25 miles or less one-way. I will make home visits on behalf of LWR in my local area and complete the provided Home Visit Checklist form.
  • I will inquire at shelters in my local area who may work with rescues.
  • I will contact veterinarian clinics in my area to determine if they will offer rescue discounts.
  • I will inquire about boarding/daycare facilities in my local area who may offer discount rates to rescue.
  • Give the name, city, state, and phone number for a personal reference. We would prefer the reference to not be a relative. Please contact your personal reference to notify them that one of our volunteers will be contacting them.
