11th ANNUAL WORLDWIDE WEIM-A-THON
April 12th – May 12th

All funds raised should be sent to the Weimaraner Rescue of your choice.

(See the “Weim Rescue” section on http://www.TheWeimaraner.com)

Funds raised will be used to save abandoned Weimaraners.

Every little step counts & could save Weimaraners all over the world.

Please read and contact us if you have any questions.

April 12th – May 12th you can help raise funds to help save the lives of abandoned Weimaraners in your area.  The Weimaraner breed requires lots of love and attention.  They are famous for appearances on Sesame Street, Commercials, & William Wegman photos.  Humans usually buy one for their beauty without doing research on the breed.  Owners sometimes relinquish their dogs to rescue groups because they don’t realize the amount of dedication and time they require.  Rescue groups also get the dogs from shelters.

The Worldwide Weim-A-Thon was created to help Weimaraner Rescue Groups all over the world raise funds to help in their missions to save abandoned Weimaraners.  These funds will help pay for boarding, food, & veterinarian expenses such as shots, microchipping, spay/neutering, & healthcare for Weimaraners in need of advanced medical attention.

We hope that each person will participate in the Weim-a-thon in any way they can by Walking, Running, or Sponsoring a Pledge to a participant.  To achieve our mission it would be great to have each participant find 5 sponsors and/or raise $100 per participant.  The more contributions you help raise, the more successful we’ll be at achieving the mission.  We encourage you to volunteer or organize an event in your community.

Check with your nearest Weimaraner Rescue to see if they have special plans for the kick-off day. www.TheWeimaraner.com 

If your community does not have a local Weimaraner Rescue Group you can pick the Weimaraner Rescue of your choice to help.  You can find people to walk/run/sponsor a pledge to by visiting our GROUPS.
