A Successful Weimaraner Rescue Event!

Cooper (Left) and Ellie (right)
On Sunday, March 19, we helped with the coordination of an event for the DC Area Weimaraner Rescue
Justin Ledger talks with folks
 at the Gambrills, Maryland Pet Valu store.The manager of the store gave Justin our contact info, as we've done both Dachshund and Weimaraner rescue events at his store before.
   It turned out to be a wonderful event thanks to two Weimararner foster moms and Justin Ledger, a local realtor (who actually raises Boxers) who put it all together for the store. He donated 2 big baskets of toys and treats, a large dog bed, and bag of food for people who entered his free raffle. Justin's facebook  page is:
Cooper, Ellie and their foster moms

   Ellie and Cooper's Foster moms brought them to the event and both came quite a distance (over 1 and 2 hours!), but that's what dog rescue people do!  Ellie's mom from Northern Virginia, and Cooper's mom from the Maryland/Delaware line.   Both stayed for the duration of the event. There was also a Weim member who brought her agility winning dog  to the event and spent time there.

Folks stopped by to meet Ellie and Cooper
   We were able to put up the big banner on one of Justin's tables as people came right in the front door so they saw it first. On that table we put the jar, the rescue info handout  and the list and description of all of the adoptable Weims.

      Two families expressed heavy interest in Ellie, and one woman  came back TWICE with middle aged parents, and their other dog to see if their dog and Ellie meshed well (they did).

  For an event that just came together, I'd say it was pretty successful over the 4 hour period!

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.
