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.
