GunnerWelcome 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.”

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.

Although German Shorthairs are historically a hunting breed, our primary focus is to place dogs as indoor family members. GSPs will be adopted only to persons with physically fenced yards.

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.”



“He’s gotten too old to hunt anymore”, his owner said as he was dropped off at the shelter without even a backward glance. Thrown away like garbage. He couldn’t even walk in because the pads of his feet were so severely burned from, what we think, was an extremely hot pickup bed. His spirit broken, bones aching and feet that were causing so much pain, he was put on death row in the gassing shelter. A small rescue came across him as they were arranging transport for a younger pointer and saw a spark in this sad, broken dog’s face as he was being taken to be destroyed.

Sterling was going to get a second chance at life! He’s just one of many.

This is where New Beginnings German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue comes in. We save these dogs and nurse them back to health in the foster homes of selfless, experienced volunteers. We work hard to match each dog with their perfect ‘furever’ home.

See how you can help dogs like Sterling find their ‘furever home’.
