Grey Ghost Weimaraner Rescue was established in November 2016 in Monument, Colorado to help weimaraners and their owners. Our mission as a 501(c)(3) volunteer powered organization is to be dedicated to the health and well being of all weimaraners through education, innovation and rehoming. We believe there is no place like home, and every weimaraner deserves a home where they are cherished members of the family. Our weimaraners are cared for in residential foster homes, and when necessary, partnering licensed boarding facilities.

I am a life long animal lover, from dogs, cats, birds, horses to anything under the sun. Growing up an "army brat" I lived in some exotic places and got to learn first hand about many exciting species of birds, butterflies, insects and mammals. I used to sneak little white mice home in my purse from science class so they wouldn't be fed to the boa constrictors! I have been involved in caring for many birds of prey, including burrowing owls that I was responsible for with a raptor education group! I have always been the one in my household that would come home with a stray or lost animal or a hurt bird. I would nurse them back to health & either release them back to the wild if appropriate or find them homes. My husband and I have had weimaraners since 1998 and fell in love with the breed because of one special dog named Sterling! In 2005, I thought it was time for Sterling to have a buddy and started looking online for another weimie. I found a rescue and started volunteering. This started a new way to help animals that needed someone to care. I held many different positions over the years and gave my heart to working with these dogs. Sadly, Sterling passed away in 2008 . . . way too young! We have adopted many of our fosters over the years and now have a 16 year old weimaraner, a 10 year old weimaraner, a 6 1/2 year old weimy / german shorthair pointer mix and a very bossy 10 lb Italian Greyhound named Mini Cooper. There are numerous finches, canaries & parakeets that add beautiful sounds to our home and a Betta fish. I love working with the ladies of GGWR as they are all intelligent, caring human beings that enjoy helping these dogs as much as I do! Carolyn can be reached at 719-357-9047 or email@example.com
My first pets as a child were my dad’s Pointers, and I’ve been a dog lover for my entire life. I got my first Weim as an adult and had him for 13 wonderful, wacky years. When I lost him, I knew that the best way to honor his life was to love and help as many Weims as possible. Rescue has become a labor of love and for all the sadness that sometimes occurs, it’s vastly exceeded by the love and joy from seeing a dog go to a wonderful home and a great life. And, to make things even better, working with the amazing people who are part of GGWR adds to my sense of purpose and meaning. Weims have made me a better person, and I would not trade that for anything.

Hello! I am Jenny Piazza. I was brought to the weimaraner breed 11 years ago when a student teacher I was supervising needed to find a home for two weim puppies he had at his house. We adopted Scratch and Vogue who immediately stole our hearts. The more we learned about this breed while raising these two girls, the more we fell in love with weimaraners. In 2013, I found myself an empty nester. I contacted a few weiamaraner rescues and donated or volunteered. In 2014-16, I fostered around 13 weimaraners in need. With each foster situation, I learned more and more about this wonderful breed.
Like many of our members, I have been drawn to animals all my life. By the time I was 10, I was advocating for animal treatment. I worked for a veterinarian in my 20’s while teaching middle school science in inner city Oklahoma City. My friends and family know me as the woman with dogs. I come by rescue work naturally, and thank the members of Grey Ghost Weimaraner Rescue for all they have taught me throughout my work with them.
I currently own three weimaraners. Scratch, 11 years, Khaleesi, 4 years, and Mr. Robert Bojangles, a 6 year old rescue I adopted in 2016. I am excited to foster each new pup I receive. Each one has taught me something about the breed and about myself.
