Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are the only German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue in Texas and we serve the entire state. We are also the closest GSP Rescue to Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a foster-based rescue for German Shorthaired Pointers. We do not have a kennel and must rely upon volunteers opening their homes to foster all the dogs in our program. We save dogs in danger of euthanasia from shelters throughout Texas. We spay/neuter and bring every pet up to date on shots before being adopted and treat for any other medical conditions. We believe that every dog deserves a great and safe home and we specialize in placing German Shorthaired Pointers in appropriate homes.

Come Meet our Pets:

We have Adoption Events in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. Please see our website for dates and dogs attending. Only previously approved adopters may meet and adopt a dog at an Adoption Event.

Our Adoption Process:

We have a two-part application process including an online application and a home visit. All family members must be at home during the visit. We require that families are approved prior to meeting dogs or being put in touch with the foster home.

Applicants must travel to meet and adopt the dog and bring any current dog to meet the new potential family member.

Our contract requires a dog visit the adopter's vet within 7 days and that if at any time the adopter needs to remove the dog from their home, the dog must be returned to us.

Our minimum donation amounts vary with the age of the dog and can be viewed on our website.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
