The Tamborro family helps with rescued Weimaraners!

by | News |

Large removal operations such as Operation ABC (Assisting Blackbear Canines) do not only put a huge strain on the financial resources of a shelter, but on staff as well. This is where volunteers step in and are greatly appreciated. The Tamborro family has played an important role in the Weimaraner Association of Canada, most recently with Operation ABC.

“Erika’s graphic and organizational talents have been put to good use over the years as she has created T-shirts, magnets and other paraphernalia that we have sold to help raise funds for our rescue efforts.  Erika and her family have also set up booths at shows like ‘Pawlooza’ or ‘All about Pets’ and helped man the booths to educate the public about our breed and our rescue program.  They’ve hosted a BBQ event at one of our club’s Retriever tests to help raise more funds.  On top of that, they foster dogs too!” says Liette Fadden, Weimaraner Association Of Canada.

She also notes that 17-year old Connor was very instrumental in helping his mother Erika Hamilton-Piercey with the pickup of three of the dogs that came to the London/Windsor area.  He and his family have fostered numerous dogs over the years and are currently fostering Luna.
