An Important Message From Trigger

My name is Trigger and I lived with a really nice man almost all of my life. He loved me, he trained and pet me, and I had some other dogs in our house for company. Not too long ago, he wasn’t there any more and the rest of the family brought me here to the...

Matrix Here Waiting…

Matrix here…”I’m in foster care and I am waiting for a home of my own.  People see me and overlook me because I’m eight, but I have a lot of surprises for them and what they don’t know, is most of them couldn’t keep up with the likes of ME! I love to play with my...

Chad Ochoa Cinco Finds His Soul Mate

Many of our adopters have only owned German Shorthaired Pointers while others have had many different breeds. Ed and Eleen are repeat adopters with at least one cat friendly GSP in the pack.

Daisy is Adopted!

Sheryl, Jessica and their dog Maggie really wanted to help a dog in need.  They were open to many types of “needs” but wanted both a good personality fit for their Maggie and themselves.  They came out a few times to meet a dog named Ramp that was a volunteer favorite.  He had medical needs...
A Plea For Buddy Rudy

A Plea For Buddy Rudy

We are desperately seeking a foster or adopter for an easy, sweet, wonderful dog we call Buddy Rudy. He has an autoimmune disease and the best we can hope for is long-term remission – a stable home environment could make a big difference with this. Most importantly, we want Buddy Rudy to have a home...

Matrix here…”I was having fun with a tennis ball in the field this last week and some young crazy GSP ran up and told me he’d get adopted before me.  He said he was young and cute and people just liked that better.  He said his name is Apollo. Well I’m not a confrontational dog…...
Meet Zulu!

Meet Zulu!

Zulu is 3-4 years old, walks very well on a leash, is house trained, and loves to be close to people…close like sit on their laps!  And, she learns VERY quickly. As is our tradition when we don’t know a dog’s name, the volunteer who initially picked her up named her. (Zulu was named after...
Apollo and Jordie are Safe!

Apollo and Jordie are Safe!

Several weeks ago we were notified about a GSP with demodectic mange that needed to be re-homed. A few days later after and not hearing anything else, we inquired as to the GSP’s status and were told that he had been taken to a local shelter. Knowing that the chances of him being adopted in his...
