Application to Foster or Adopt
We are committed to giving senior Weimaraners a chance to live out their natural lives with love. Like people, we believe that Weims in their golden years have value and an incredible capacity to enrich the lives of their humans.We are always in need of short- and long-term foster families and adoptive families for homeless senior-age Weims. If you have room in your heart and home to help a senior Weim in need, we’d love to hear from you!
Two important notes:
1. For the safety of your children and the welfare our dogs SMW does not adopt to, nor have foster families with, children under the age of 10.
2. For the welfare of our senior Weims, all dogs and cats in the adoptive home must be spayed/neutered, up-to-date on veterinary care and dogs must be on a form of heartworm and flea/tick prevention (alternative/natural methods are encouraged but not required).
If you have questions or special circumstances to discuss with our Application Coordinator, email us at:
Fostering information: Senior Moments will cover the cost of pre-approved veterinary care and supplements/mobility aids, etc. as needed for the foster dog. If possible, we ask that the foster families provide high-quality food for their foster dog as a donation to the rescue. If that is not possible, we’ll provide food, bedding, etc. as well. Don’t let cost concerns get in the way of helping a senior Weim as they wait for their forever family.
Adoption fee information: we spend an average of $500 on each senior Weim who comes into our care and some have bills into the thousands of dollars. Regardless of money spent, our adoption fee is just $250. Come and get your love! We can’t wait to meet you!Our application is below. Every question helps us get to know you better and gives our Weims the best chance at a successful life with you. Answers to all questions are required for application processing.
