About Us

German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue PA, Inc. is a non-profit, IRS-recognized organization formed in the early 1990's. We have re-homed hundreds of German Shorthaired Pointers.

German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue PA, Inc. survives primarily on fundraising efforts, the generosity of individuals, private businesses and an amazing network of volunteers.

We receive no money (grant or otherwise) from any government entity. Our volunteers tirelessly donate their time and energy and open their homes to benefit the dogs in their care, their new extended volunteer family and the breed.

All the dogs that come through our program are first evaluated by our very experienced volunteers, then brought up to date on required vaccinations. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered before being placed into their new, loving, forever homes. We strive to match the dog and prospective adopters so that the energy level, personality and needs of the dog are well suited to the new owners.
