Welcome to The Weiner Brigade
The Weiner Brigade inc. has changed, due to my husband becoming ill, we have retired our incorporation for a year or two until we see how his health improves; I am going to leave our site up because we will still advocate for the animals in need, continue striving to host spay and neuter community cat clinics and in the future resume dog clinics if able. For now we are just families and folks who care about the needs of a very few who will still need our help as we decide to pick up the torch in a year or two, until then we will do what we can as we are able.
This who is we are, like you we just care about life and the futures of the voiceless. We started out being called," The Wiener Brigade" by the kids in the area who would come to play with unloved free roaming senior companions and dogs I would bring back from my grandfathers practice when an owner would surrender them because they no longer could care for them, or from a farm where they just didnt care..pulled many to assist from pounds as well. My grandfather was a vet, because of all my life being taught compassion for life and Gods pets as grandfather would call all of them, my family became advocates and hence we where born. We (aka as The Weiner Brigade) a small family centered foster for animals with no where else to turn. Taking in unloved homeless, severly neglected / abused or those on the brink of death that would take a long time and money to recover, longer than most others are unable or can care for. For those few able to be with us, they learn to love, hope and trust. Behaviors such as chasing cats, digging, hyperness from lack of direction or needing adjusted on social skills are welcome. We usually are full much of the time because we can't help them all no matter how hard we would try and there are also many great rescues, shelters and advocates who are in the same cause so the loads are shared by many good hearts. We try to assist with referals and others like us who care about the happiness and welfare of the animal and help seek resolution so all thrive.
Animals like flowers in a uncared garden, they bloom when weeded, fed and appreciated, sometimes the toiling is hard but the blossom blooms and you know its worth every minuet of your sweat, blood and tears. Same in humans when you are cared for, loved, and secure one thrives.
The majority who cross our threshold will be tended, adored and loved, in time their lives will be decorated with wonderful new families. A very few will make us their home forever due to extreem age or special need that makes them undesirable for adoption, but we do try to seek out those hidden families who are just the perfect match for even a companion with a blemish or two, They also want to paw their new story.
Visit some of our pages and see some of what we have done in the past, read the stories of a few whos lives mattered while in our care. Learn about the family and others who have cherished and cried as we had been toiled to make a differance to those who needed a little extra care and kindness. Also visit, help advocate animals we post who are looking for homes that might be in our care or the care of others, always looking for additional fosters too...its not about us...Its about the voicless who desire to belong. Our planet is huge but homes for them are few, yet they wait for a special family or person to share their lives with, who will love them unconditionally as an important and VALUED member of a dedicated family. We are not perfect, nor are those who come to us. But in the end they are happy, beloved, cared for and will have a wonderful story that will include a wonderful home. They will find a new beginning, devoted families who will love them as they so deserved. We are only a tool used for their hope, You are their tomorrow and forever......................
Companions who have been in our care one medical exam if not more, Heart worm tested if 6 months or older and all from 8 weeks old and up (If we have pups) are given monthly heart worm prevention, spay or neuter, vaccinations, other medical services they need to aid in their recovery / healing. Advantage Multi or Revolution, ID so in the unlikely event they would become separated from their family, those who find them can assist in helping that beloved companion find their way back home.
We love company and hope that you will visit our site often and pass it on to your friends and family. We encourage adoption of these companions and those in shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries. They all deserve wonderful tomorrows and there are many. Please look in your local ones first, its wonderful to give local companions first choice in your communities.
We believe fair is fair, every companion needs their own human pet, are you waiting for a furbaby in need to cuddle and love you for ever? Your heart needs harnest too :o)
Thank you for considering a companion in need of a dedicated home as your next family member.
