Mission Statement

"GSP Care of Ohio Rescue, Inc. is dedicated to helping German Shorthair Pointers (GSP) in need throughout Ohio, Indiana and northern Kentucky. We work with shelters, humane organizations and individual owners to assist with behavior issues, placement, health care, and other decisions and issues regarding GSPs. We take homeless GSPs into our foster care program, evaluate their temperaments, ensure that they are spayed/neutered and will place them in an appropriate home. We will not place an unaltered or people-aggressive dog. We screen potential adopters and do everything in our power to ensure that the right dog is matched with the right home and that the dog is well-cared for. GSPCO Rescue's ultimate goal is that all GSPs be in loving, permanent homes for their entire lives, and that no GSP be left in a shelter or euthanized for inappropriate reasons."


German Shorthair Pointer Care Of Ohio Rescue is here to provide a service for the dogs. We are a group of volunteers who love the breed. Foster dogs live in family homes and treated as family pets. There is no shelter with set hours. Our dogs are not boarded and they do not live in kennels. We are strictly a volunteer organization. No one gets paid to do this, unless you count the tail wags and doggy kisses.

Our foster homes take in strays, dogs from pounds and shelters. They are a priority over owner-turn-ins. Foster homes evaluate the dog to the best of their ability. They have the dog vetted, and spayed/neutered.

We do understand the quirks of our breed and have the knowledge to handle German Shorthair Pointers. We do not breed dogs. We believe breeding should be done by responsible breeders for the betterment of the breed.

Dogs in our care are not defective. They are the direct result of someone getting a dog and not taking the time to properly train and socialize it. We do not take in aggressive dogs.
