http://www.mhwc.org/rescue/howitworks.shtmlPlease visit our website for adoption information and application. Upon receipt of the application, a Mile High Weimaraner Rescue (MHWR) Volunteer will review the application and check your references. If all looks well with your application, a MHWR Volunteer will let you know if you are a good fit for a Weim. If there is not currently a dog available that matches what you are looking for, your name is kept on a list of possible adopters. If a match is thought to exist, a MHWR Volunteer will contact you. MHWR is operated 100% by the help of volunteers. The volunteers spend their spare time helping Weims in need find new homes. Our volunteers have families, jobs, and dogs on their own that keep them very busy. They help when they can, so please be patient with our volunteers. If we don't get back to you in a timely fashion, don't hesitate to send a reminder email our way and we'll do what we can to get back to you. We do not have a 'shelter'. All dogs in need of homes are either in their surrendering home, a foster home, or at a boarding facility. As much as we want the dogs in rescue to be rehomed as quickly as possible, we all have time and area constraints that can sometimes slow the process down. Please know that we take rehoming Weims very seriously and want to make sure all of the dogs we place go to the right families. That can take time, so again, please be patient. There is an adoption fee associated with the adoption. The fee varies based on age and condition of the dog. The average adoption fee is $200.00. All dogs (with the exception of puppies under six months of age) will be spayed or neutered, have a Home-Again or AVID micro-chip implanted, will be current on vaccines, tested for heartworms, and have a veterinary check.
