Help Us Help the Breed!
Rescue is truly a labor of love. Without donations from generous people with a deep love for this wonderful breed, we would surely be out of “business”. There are many expenses incurred with each dog we rescue; the obvious being complete vet exams, spay/neuter, vaccines, de-worming, microchip, heartworm tests and preventative, and fecal tests… and that is for the healthy dogs. Often there are additional costs for antibiotics, dentals, flea treatments, heartworm treatments, boarding costs, etc. Our adoption fees do not cover the average cost per dog, which is why our donors are so important. Please consider donating, whether it be time, money or items. Donations, no matter how small, are always appreciated.
Items we would love to have donated are: dog crates, leashes and collars, dog treats, dog toys, dog dishes, dog beds, grooming supplies (shampoo, nail clippers, brushes), towels and anything else to make the dog’s life better and help keep our costs down. Contact us via our contact form to let us know if you have items you would like to donate.
DONATE WHILE YOU SHOP
Earn money for our rescue dogs while shopping for your own pooch… or yourself! Check out the shopping page, but do NOT bookmark the actual shopping sites. Instead, go through the links each time to order from our affiliates. This way, we receive a percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you.
If you have an idea for a fundraiser, we would love to hear from you. Our organization runs solely on adoption fees (which rarely covers the cost of getting the dog vetted) and donations, so we welcome all ideas to help us cover our monthly expenses! Please complete the contact form on the contact us page to let us know more about your idea.
FOSTER a GSP
Opening your home to a homeless GSP, whether it be for 3 weeks or 3 months, is an incredibly rewarding experience. We provide for all vet care. Foster homes are asked to provide food, some basic work on house manners, socialization opportunities for the dog and lots of love. As a foster, you would also be directly involved in the placement of the dog(s) in your care into their permanent homes. In many cases, the adopting families will maintain contact with the foster family, trading e-mails, photos and stories. While some people think that they could never foster because it would be far too painful to give up the dog when it is adopted, our foster families feel more like they have gained an extended GSP family through fostering. If you are interested in fostering, please complete our foster application below.
Saving these wonderful dogs takes a team effort. Since we are an all-volunteer organization, we are always in need of GSP savvy team members to help them find their permanent homes. Are you willing to help transport dogs, go to pounds to identify and assess GSPs, do home checks in your area, make phone calls, take dogs to rescue events, or help work on fundraisers? If so, please complete our volunteer application below.
