Welcome to​​
New Beginnings German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue

New Beginnings German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is an all volunteer group whose purpose is to find permanent loving families for dogs that, through no fault of their own, find themselves without homes. Many of us have had countless years of loving and caring for our own Shorthairs.

Although German Shorthairs are historically a hunting breed, our primary focus is to place dogs as non-hunting, indoor family members. GSPs will be adopted only to homes  with physically fenced yards.  Apartments are not a suitable home situation for Shorthairs.

Our foremost responsibility is the security and happiness of each dog who comes our way. Their new home must truly be a “New Beginning” for them. “Helping dogs with people problems.”

New Beginnings GSP Rescue is a holistic/alternative rescue. We subscribe to a natural, holistic approach to animal care. Holistic medicine, by its very nature, is humane to the core.

We believe in:

  • Homecooked/Raw meals
  • Responsible vaccination ( we are not ANTI-vax!!)
  • Titering
  • Safe, humane training with positive reinforcement (not the Cesar Millan method)
  • The companion is a member of the family (not property)


Remember Lake Charles, LA

(Hurricane Laura, August  2020)
The animal rescues in the Lake Charles area are tirelessly working to restore property, lives, businesses, etc while trying to get access to basis supplies like food and medical supplies.  Various organizations and local agencies are able to offer help but it’s not enough.
Did you know that many adoptions in the north are with dogs that come from these southern rescues?   They need your help! 
Please consider donating to hurricane relief efforts and helping Lake Charles rebuild.
