We only foster animals if the need is clearly extreme.

We believe that the GSP is a special breed with special needs and that we who own them can offer a service by screening prospective families.

DONATIONS: The German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Oregon is an Oregon non-profit.

We ask adoptive families to donate to GSP rescue as this is how we are able to continue our efforts, but there is no fee for our referral services.

Euthanizing shelters should call us before considering euthanizing an adoptable GSP.

Rescue volunteers are generally available to come and evaluate the animal, if you have questions.

CONSIDERATIONS: GSP’s in sheltered situations should not be adopted strictly for hunting use, but should be placed as a family pet, and its capability to hunt is not of importance.

Obedience training is strongly recommended at any age.

In the shelter, lost or strayed GSP’s tend to mourn and sometimes suffer kennel shock.

Rescue should be called in immediately if that is suspected.

The GSP Club tries to place rescue GSP’s through referral and arrange for veterinary and/or foster care when necessary.
