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.

Senior Weims Slumber Party

Slumber party!!!! I’ve been such a good girl at my new foster home that my foster Mom let me have a boy/girl slumber party! This picture is of Holly (left), Gilbert (in yellow slippers) and me (Beauty).

We had a great time and, given that one of us is 14 years old (Holly), one is recovering from major surgery Gilbert) and one (me) is dealing with terminal cancer, we actually slept! Nothing like those “slumber” parties that human kids have.

The doctor says I don’t have a lot of time left on this earth, but I’m enjoying the heck out of the days I have left. Carpe Diem and all.

If you’d like to read my whole story, see more pictures and check out my Amazon wish list, click here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.383898955072705.1073741828.238962312899704&type=3

Anybody up for popcorn and a movie marathon?

Love to you all, Beauty

senior moments

Senior Moments Weimaraners, Inc. is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization helping senior Weimaraners to have safe, full, love-filled lives.  We take in homeless Weims age 10 and up and give them love and vet care while they wait for their forever families to adopt them.

We are foster-home based, we do not have a facility.  We are only able to help these older Weims when we have foster homes available.  If you have room in your heart and home to help a senior Weim, please contact us today!

Our service area is currently limited to Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois and will expand as we develop our network of foster homes.

We are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization and we are qualified to accept tax-deductible contributions, bequests, devices, transfers and gifts. Please consult your tax preparer regarding how this applies to you.
