DC Area Weimaraner Rescue Event: Part 1 / Rescue Home Inspection

Rescue manager Karin working a Weim
On Saturday, March 8, I had a busy day of dog rescue activities. At 8:30 a.m. I met with potential adopters to do an inspection of their home.

Rescues are very careful about adopting dogs out to ensure they're going to a good place and won't be turned out onto the street again, and part of that process is a walk through in someone's home and a sit-down interview with the potential adopting family. Because we're on an interactive network that includes several dog rescues, we were asked to do an inspection for DASH Rescue.net. So, at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, I did the inspection and met everyone. The dog they're adopting would have a really nice, large, fenced-in backyard!  The interview and inspection lasted about 1 hour.

After the home inspection I was off to another dog rescue appointment. Because we've worked with Pet Valu in Gambrills, Md. before for Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue (and the Baltimore location), I helped coordinate a rescue appearance for the DC Area Weimaraner Rescue as well. That event happened on Saturday, March 8.
2 more beautiful Weimaraners

  A lot of Weimaraner owners and foster parents showed up with their beautiful "Gray Ghosts" (as they're known). The temperature finally warmed up to 60F so we were all outside in a tent that the store manager was kind enough to put up for us.
  There were quite a few visitors who had interest in the Weimaraners, and hopefully some will be fostered or adopted.  ***FOSTER HOMES ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED***


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
