Fostering

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 Wirehearts Foster Network is a nationwide network of foster families, evaluators, trainers and transporters. Through the efforts of our Wirehearts 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 Wirehearts 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 caregivers.

To become a foster we encourage you to become a member of the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America (GWPCA) The GWPCA membership application is available from the GWPCA website. Adoption fees are waived for GWPCA members. As many of our fosters end up failing, we encourage you to join.

Then please return to our website and complete a Foster Application. The NGWPR National Rescue Coordinator will then contact you.

As a foster you will be a valued partner in our effort to give each GWP in need chance for a wonderful new life.
