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.”

Animal Drug Safety Communication: FDA Alerts Pet Owners and Veterinarians About Potential for Neurologic Adverse Events Associated with Certain Flea and Tick Products

September 20, 2018
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is alerting pet owners and veterinarians to be aware of the potential for neurologic adverse events in dogs and cats when treated with drugs that are in the isoxazoline class.
Since these products have obtained their respective FDA approvals, data received by the agency as part of its routine post-marketing activities indicates that some animals receiving Bravecto, Nexgard or Simparica have experienced adverse events such as muscle tremors, ataxia, and seizures. Another product in this class, Credelio, recently received FDA approval. These products are approved for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, and the treatment and control of tick infestations.”

**FOSTER HOMES NEEDED**

BE A HERO TO HOMELESS PETS BY FOSTERING!

If you love animals but can’t adopt, foster! New Beginnings is looking for foster families to provide short- or long-term, in-home care for a dog or puppy until they find forever homes.  As a foster, you provide a temporary home, training, exercise, love and care.  We provide the rest, including support, food, supplies and more!

Fostering can be fun and flexible and certainly one of the most rewarding things you can do for a homeless pet.  You have the ability to change the future of one lucky dog or puppy in need by providing the love and attention he or she desperately needs, greatly increasing his or her chances of being adopted!

Quincy is ready to be your best friend!

Quincy is a beautiful, playful boy around 3-1/2 yrs old with a medium energy level. He is crate trained and good on a leash.

Quincy is a curious boy who is eager to learn and should pick up on new commands and tricks! Showing his human love is his main interest! He is sure to bring smiles and adventures into your life!

Quincy is longing to be the only pet in a home with a minimum five-foot fence. And if you can give him that, then you can give him his miracle.

He’d rather hunt down cats than play with them so a home with any cats would not be a good fit.

Make his dreams come true and consider adopting Quincy.
