About the Rescue

Sorrel Robin DSC_0040w8x6We are the California GSP Rescue.
We are a breed-specific 501c3 Non Profit rescue specializing in German Shorthaired Pointers (GSP’s). As a not-for-profit organization, we operate through volunteers and networking to assure proper placement and lifetime assistance for each dog and enjoyment by adopting families. California GSP Rescue takes purebred GSP’s from any situation for careful evaluation and placement. All dogs are altered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and come with a warranty contract which provides lifetime training and support.

How we work

EVALUATION: Expert knowledge of the GSP enables us to evaluate each dog’s temperament, training, health and interaction with their environment including; children, cats, birds, other dogs, cars, house manners. We provide recommendations for necessary training too. This enables us to match the perfect dog to each adopter and find every GSP a perfect home!

Dogs are housed in foster homes where they are nurtured and loved, trained and socialized until a new home is found. We have constant need for foster homes as many foster families adopt one or more of the dogs they are fostering.

QUALIFIED HOMES: Potential adopters of CA GSP Rescue dogs must qualify before a placement is made. There must be a suitable fenced area adjacent to the home and the adopting family must demonstrate a knowledge of the breed and its unique needs. the ideal situation is where the dog can be an indoor/outdoor dog. Prior ownership of a GSP or close association with one is desirable. Also of great consideration is the activity level of the the family because this breed thrives on regular, active participation with its family.

ADOPTION CONTRACTS: The adopter signs a contract ensuring the care and well-being of the dog under rescue’s guidance: initial and follow-ups visits by Rescue are agreed and obedience training is arranged. Other services provided to adopters include: clinic shots, free training, participation in Club events and unlimited consultations.

 CA GSP Rescue dogs are eligible for registration as Indefinite Listing Privilege (ILP), which allows participation in all AKC events except conformation shows. That makes CA GSP Rescue dogs just as great as any other registered dog! If you are interested in ILP, we will gladly assist you.
