Tarheel Weimaraner Rescue - Rutherfordton Pet Shelter

Tarheel Weimaraner Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. We are a group of dedicated volunteers who have a deep love of and commitment to the Weimaraner breed. We have rescued and placed over 800 Weimaraners in the last 15 years! These dogs come to us from a variety of situations: from shelters, from owners who are divorcing or ill and can no longer care for their dogs, from people moving to an apartment that doesn't allow dogs, but mostly from people who did not research the requirements and personality of this unique breed and then later discovered they were not up to the challenge. These are not the calm dogs one sees on Sesame Street or the Wegman photos!! Our rescue program tries hard to match the right dog to the right owner, and we have been very successful for that reason. When possible, volunteers provide temporary foster homes for adoptable Weims. During this time, the foster family evaluates the dog for temperament, behavior, health etc. and carefully exposes the dog to a variety of experiences. In this way, we are able to determine into which type of home a dog should or should not be placed.
