Dogs make the best copilots!

NorCal German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue is a non-profit, breed specific rescue. Our rescued German Shorthairs are located in foster homes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Transport volunteers are vital to saving dogs from overcrowded shelters. We rescue dogs from Redding to Fresno and everywhere in between, and sometimes the dog has to travel over 200 miles to reach their foster home. Without volunteers, it would be impossible.

If you're willing to spend a little time in the car with a sweet and grateful German Shorthair, please respond to this posting or fill out the volunteer application here. Whether you can drive 20 miles or 200, it is a huge help for a needy German Shorthaired Pointer!

Mission Statement

To bring about a time when every GSP in Northern California has a loving forever home.

Description

NorCal GSP Rescue takes in adoptable dogs from area shelters and fosters them in volunteer foster homes. By fostering dogs in our homes we are able to save lives and provide the public with healthy spayed or neutered dogs. The foster home provides a transition period between life in the animal shelter and the new, permanent home. The dogs are given the opportunity to learn any needed social skills and to receive the much needed love, shelter, and medical care they deserve. When a dog is rescued from the animal shelter it receives a health exam by a veterinarian, the vaccinations appropriate for its age, and a heartworm test and preventative. All dogs of 6 months of age or older are spayed or neutered. Dogs under 6 months of age are adopted under the agreement that they will be spayed or neutered at the appropriate time. Most of our rescued GSPs have come from Northern California animal shelters. We take only those animals who are in danger of being euthanized. In order to give these dogs a chance, we must limit the number of dogs we take from private homes who are being surrendered because their owners no longer have time for them, are moving, etc. We will accept animals from the public only as a last resort IF space is available in an appropriate foster home.
