About Nor Cal Weim Rescue
Our Mission Statement
Northern California Weimaraner
Rescue (NCWR) is a non-profit
volunteer organization dedicated to the
overall welfare of Weimaraners. We
rescue, rehabilitate and place
abandoned dogs, neglected dogs or dogs
whose families can no longer provide
care for them.  

NCWR attempts to educate prospective
and current owners about the breed and
responsible pet ownership, while
working cooperatively with animal
shelters and individuals.  While in
NCWR care, Weimaraners receive
routine medical care, are spayed or
neutered and are evaluated by an NCWR
volunteer for placement in the most
suitable, permanent, loving home.  

We also offer ongoing assistance to
adopting families to help overcome
behavioral and training problems.  Our
goal is for every Weimaraner to become
a beloved, contributing family

NCWR gratefully acknowledges and    
recruits volunteer help throughout the
entire process.  Our work is only
possible because of caring individuals
and tax-deductible donations.  

One hundred percent of all                   
donations to NCWR go to the care,      
rescue, veterinary attention and          
other essential items, including           
administration and documentation for
rescued Weimaraners.
How we do what we do
Northern California Weimaraner Rescue is a group of
Weimaraner lovers who are concerned about the
welfare of Weimaraners who have lost their homes and
need to find new responsible loving homes.

We cover the areas of North and Central California and
also work closely with Weimaraner rescue groups in
Southern California, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, Nevada and
Oregon.  We are made up of volunteers who are
familiar with the Weimaraner breed and who donate
many hours of their time and money to make sure
these grey friends who have fallen on hard times find
loving homes.  We are not able to place every dog, but
we do have a very good success rate.

All dogs are spayed and neutered before placement.  
They receive vet care, if needed and are current on
vaccinations.  Our volunteers are available to help with
any questions or problems that may arise when
Weimaraners are placed in new homes.   

Perhaps you have decided that a puppy just is not the
best choice for your lifestyle.  Perhaps the idea of
giving a homeless Weimaraner a second change at a
family of his own appeals to you.  Our list of rescue
dogs changes frequently and we might just have the
dog for you.  
"Why are you asking me to pay a $350 fee for a dog
you listed on your site and I picked up from the

Our fees are not based on individual dog's costs.  They
are based on what we need to run our overall rescue
efforts.  We spend very little on some rescue dogs and
have spent $5000+ on others.  Our vet bills for 2008
were more than $40,000.  Vet bills are 95% of our
expenses as we have almost no overhead and are an all
volunteer organization.
