Fostering Program
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.
