- Is a German Shorthaired Pointer Right for You?
Our application process includes: (1) an online application and (2) a home visit by a local GSP rescue volunteer. After receiving your online application we will contact your vet and personal references. Depending upon your availability and the availability of a local volunteer for the home visit, full approval typically takes approximately 7 days. You will not be put in touch with the foster home for any dogs of interest until you are fully approved.
As we are a volunteer organization, we appreciate your patience and support. We understand that you may be working with other rescues or shelters in your search for the perfect pet. Please be aware that there may be other interested applicants in the dog you are interested in. We do not hold dogs. Our policy is that the first approved applicant to meet a dog, can adopt that dog. If you are interested in a particular GSP, you should arrange to meet that dog as soon as possible following approval.
Please understand that the responses to your emails are sent by volunteers, the person checking your references is a volunteer, the person coming to your home for a visit is a volunteer and the foster home that responds to your questions and makes time for you to meet the dog is a volunteer. Should you decide not to adopt from our Rescue, please consider making a small donation in appreciation of the time our volunteers spent working with you.
Minimum Adoption Donation Amounts:
$350 for a dog under a year of age
$300 for a dog one (1) year old to seven (7) years old
$150 for a dog eight (8) to ten (10) years old
$100 recommended for a dog over ten (10+) years
Adoption donations are based on vet costs - the average veterinary cost for Texas GSP Rescue per dog is $300. The average cost of care for a GSP in Rescue is $400. Adoption donations are supplemented by Texas GSP Rescue fundraising efforts and our very generous donors.
