Our Mission

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.

Our group believes that the German Shorthaired Pointer is a wonderful breed that has often been acquired by owners who do not understand its personality. Therefore many GSPs find themselves abandoned or turned into shelters. Each dog received into rescue will be thoroughly vetted and evaluated for temperament and energy level. Then we endeavor to match each dog that comes to us with the best possible adopters.

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.  All  dogs will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption unless it is medically detrimental to the dog.

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.

New Beginnings GSP Rescue is a non-profit organization in Maryland, funded by donations, fund raisers, and adoption donations. All donations are fully tax deductible. All monies received go towards the costs of operating New Beginnings GSP Rescue and the rescue expenses of German Shorthaired Pointers. None of its officers or board members receives any payment for serving in that capacity.
