About Wisconsin German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue Inc. (WGSPR)

Wisconsin German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue

(WGSPR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization

covering the state of Wisconsin and upper

peninsula of Michigan.   We save GSPs from

shelters, humane societies, and owner

surrenders.  Our rescued dogs are placed into

foster homes to be loved, nurtured, trained and in

some cases nursed back to health while we find

the perfect permanent home and loving family

for them.

We cannot do this without help, so please click the links to donate and volunteer to see how you can help save a dogs life!
