Welcome to National GWP Rescue, Inc
The officers and members of the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America (GWPCA) believe that every German Wirehaired Pointer (GWP) deserves a supportive and loving home and the National GWP Rescue, Inc. (NGWPR) was
developed to put that belief into action.
Sponsored and supported by the GWPCA and
the American Kennel Club (AKC), NGWPR is
committed to helping desperate and neglected
Wires whenever and where ever possible.
Matching homeless GWPs with
loving owners is our primary goal
National GWP Rescue is a nationwide rescue program whose volunteers work tirelessly to provide funding, foster homes, medical care
and training for GWPs found in shelters,
animal control facilities and to those GWPs whose current owners are unable to provide a suitable situation.
Working hand- in-hand with governmental
and local shelters, NGWPR provides a safe and responsible home for GWP’s in need. Placed
with an experienced GWPCA member,
fostered GWPs that have been neglected, untrained or have medical issues quickly blossom as they are readied for their "forever" homes.
Prior to releasing our rescued GWPs for
adoption, volunteers provide obedience,
manners, and housetraining. We hold to
the philosophy that a mannerly dog has a
better chance of fitting into a new household.
NGWPR believes that Wires were designed to hunt and unlike some other rescue programs, we are happy to place dogs with field experience or bird instinct with potential owners who enjoy hunting behind a Wire. However, NGWPR insists that any rescue dog first be a house dog and companion, then a weekend hunting partner.
