We also offer "courtesy posts" for owners who feel they can no longer provide a home for their Weimaraner. All Weimaraners in our care are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical issues they might have, including, but not limited to heartworm disease, orthopedic concerns, vision issues, and anything else needed. Our efforts are funded by adoption fees and donations from "Weim-loving" people like you.
