Wild Animal Sanctuary in conjunction with Dawn Weimer Studios
In HONOR OF my late wife Dawn Weimer, Bronze Sculptor, and The Wild Animal Sanctuary for what they are doing
for discarded and needy Wild Animals taken in from all over the world !!
This is YOUR opportunity to Help Support The Wild Animal Sanctuary (registered Charity) just east of Denver, CO AND Beautify their Sanctuary facilities by purchasing/sponsoring 1 or more of the 18 chosen by the Sanctuary of Lifesize/Monumental Wild Animal Bronze sculptures by nationally known Sculptor Dawn Weimer (your name will be placed on Sponsor plaques under each Sculpture). By your purchase of these magnificent Bronze sculptures which will be placed all over the more than 700 acre 'campus' you will be complimenting the majesty of more than 450 wild animals which have been given a home to live out the rest of their lives in total care, safety and some semblance of freedom! Teddy Roosevelt is quoted as saying: "Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care". I am sure you would agree that Animals are OUR responsibility! There are many such "sanctuarys" all around the world BUT when you check out THIS ONE you will find THE most unusual animal sanctuary in the whole world...NOTHING LIKE IT!!! wildanimalsanctuary.org Tour for over a mile the whole 'campus' 40 ft above the animals even if in a wheelchair and the animals don't mind at all!

Sculpting 'thoughts' by the late Dawn Weimer
In the past, my husband and I raised registered Quarter Horses for many years. We don't have horses now and I miss them; Shows Promise pulls my heart strings...it is my favorite work. It reflects the tenderness and patience of the mare, and the colt's carefree attitude as he throws that sassy little nose in the air. Sculpting them allowed me to relive special moments with our horses. So much so in fact, that as I worked in close on the colt, I swore I felt the mare's breath on my cheek. Of course, that had to be just artistic imagination working overtime added to a lot of wishful thinking! This piece is somewhat stylized while still being realistic. I have done two patinas in this edition, gray dapple and bay.
Dawn Weimer Studios offers only lost wax bronze sculpture cast with the utmost care and integrity at Art Castings of Colorado in Loveland, Colorado, ("Sculptureville,USA!"). As each different sculpture edition of Dawn's sells out, a letter is sent to every collector of that bronze piece stating that this particular edition/size is sold out... Enclosed with the letter is a small piece cut from my original mold which further verifies that this particular edition/size will not be produced again. Should you ever come across a sculpture you feel is suspicious of being a imitation of one of my pieces, please contact me so I can look into the matter of possible violation of copyright.
Virtually any bronze can (because of the NEW 3-D technology) NOW be made a larger Table-size or even larger lifesize and/or monumental... Look for announcements of NEW enlargements of several of Dawn's bronze sculptures soon! Inquiries for all these various sizes are welcome.
