NorCal GSP Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to placing unwanted and abandoned German Shorthaired Pointers into new homes.

NorCal GSP Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, funded by donations, fundraisers, and adoption donations. All donations are fully tax deductible. Our tax ID # is 26-0129307. All monies received go towards the costs of operating NorCal GSP Rescue and the rescue expenses of German Shorthaired Pointers. None of its officers or board members receives any payment for serving in that capacity.

Our Mission Statement:

  • To help unwanted German Shorthaired Pointers in Northern California find caring and loving permanent homes.
  • To provide veterinary care for each German Shorthaired Pointer rescue including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, heartworm tests & preventative, intestinal parasite treatment and any other medical care needed.
  • To educate potential owners about the German Shorthaired Pointer breed and its special requirements to ensure an educated decision when selecting the breed as a pet.
  • To assist owners in solving problems with their German Shorthaired Pointer in order to keep German Shorthaired Pointers in their current home.
  • To encourage owners to use their breeders as a resource of support and information.
  • To educate animal control officers and shelter personnel on how to properly identify a German Shorthaired Pointer and of their particular personality and behavioral traits.
Adoption Fees

These monies help to defray some of the medical and other costs we incur while the dog is in our care. Pay by check or credit card (via PayPal). All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm and fecal checked and microchipped. Occasionally, a dog requires special vet care while in our program. We will provide you with the dog’s veterinary records so you will be fully informed of any known medical conditions.
