Won't You Be Our Partner AKA How You Can Help!

The good news is 100% of the funding GPPR receives goes to the dogs.  You read that right, 100%.  Now I wish I could say our funding needs are 100% met, but they aren't. However, you can help.

You can sponsor a specific dog and be a Pointing Partner.  Your donation goes to your partner's food, vet care, toys or anything else needed to help in the journey to a forever home.  You can have a direct impact on the second chance your Pointing Partner has in our program.  In doing this you support the dog, the foster home and GPPR.  Gotta love that.

Sometimes we have dogs in our care with special medical needs.  They are not adoption ready and are listed under the title of Sponsorship.  Lila and Pete are both examples of Sponsorship dogs.   They need lots of love and financial support to assist in the healing process.

You can also donate in the memory of a loved one, either two footed or four footed.  It's all good and goes to helping our dogs find wonderful forever homes.  Maybe you are the family looking to adopt and maybe you can't adopt, but still want to help.  We love you for your support.  Just like we love the dogs in our program.  In whatever way you can....won't you be our partner???

Love Is In The Air At GPPR

A few words about love and GPPR.  I may be uniquely qualified as I am both a volunteer for GPPR and an adopter from them. Right now I am Buddy's foster Mom. In the past I was the foster Mom for Layla, Chukar, Addy, Wallace, Snowflake and Jesse.  It's a revolving door of fosters here and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Valentine's is just around the corner and we have some real sweethearts looking for love on our website.  

It takes a special person to adopt a rescue dog.  We find they are people full of hope.  People who embrace second chances.  People who are willing to love a new dog, and the special quirks they come with, into their lives. Quirks you say? Yup, we have them and dogs have them. Quirks, idiosyncrasies, baggage, history. I mean that in the best way!!! Rescue dogs are grateful, loving, adaptable.  Some do best with experienced owners, some may have special needs.  All are waiting for that perfect forever home. Are they adoptable - absolutely.  Are they fabulous - completely.  Do they have a whole lot of love to give - totally.      

We understand that adopting a new pet is a commitment, and we are committed to helping your new family member adjust into your home and heart.

Think about the love you have to offer, and the dogs waiting for their forever home.  Let's do a little matchmaking.  Love is in the air.
