Great Plains Pointer Rescue has been saving pointers since 2008. Our mission you might ask? Rescue and find adoptive homes for pointers in need in the Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota area's. There are as many reasons a dog comes into rescue as there are dogs. Some are abandoned or lost, in some cases the owner died, divorced, was forced to give up their dog due to job loss. Just because a dog is in rescue it does not mean it has a lot of issues. It is just in need of a home, and we are here to help.
All of our dogs receive medical care including vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchip. The average cost for medical care is $350. Adoption fees vary by the dogs age. Adoption fee's are like a revolving door of sorts. Each fee helps the next dog in line. In this case what goes around comes around in a great way!
Our dogs are in foster homes with unpaid volunteers. They offer shelter, training and love to animals whose whole world turned upside down. They know their fosters and provide valuable information to prospective adopters about the dog's temperament, needs and personality. Foster homes are saints who sometimes border on insanity. Just kidding....reality is foster homes make it all possible. Possible for you to find your forever friend and make an informed adoption decision.
That's how we roll at GPPR. We take adoptions seriously. We are passionate about pointers and rescue. You might even say we are passionately crazy pointer people. You could say that, and we'd take that as a compliment!
