If you are a GWP owner or if you have had Wires in the past
and are familiar with the breed and have experience with
obedience and /or field training NGWPR needs you.
The Wireheart's Foster Network is a nationwide network of
foster families, evaluators, trainers and transporters. Through
the efforts of our Wireheart's foster families each rescued
GWP has the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to
fit into a permanent and loving home.
We know that a well-manned dog transitions into a new family
successfully. Therefore, our Wireheart's foster families open their
homes to our rescue Wires then spend time teaching basic obedience
skills, working on house manners and providing social experiences for
their foster dogs.
NGWPR assumes the cost for medical screening and procedures,
transportation and all other expenses incurred by the rescue dog.
We do ask that our foster families provide food for their rescue dog,
unless a special diet is dictated by a veterinarian.
NGWPR provides foster care training and instructs our new foster
volunteers in the NGWPR foster and adoption protocol. NGWPR
also carries liability insurance that covers each of our foster care givers.
To become a Wirehair's Foster we encourage you to become a member
of the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America (GWPCA)
The GWPCA membership application is availablefrom the GWPCA
Then please go to the NGWPR website and complete a Foster
Application and sign the Foster Agreement and submit it via the
internet. The NGWPR National Rescue Coordinator will then contact
you to discuss your application.
As a Wireheart's Foster Care Giver you will be a valued partner in our
effort to give each GWP in need chance for a wonderful new life.
