Surrendering Your GSP

Please understand that our first priority is to those GSPs in shelters needing our help. 

Please call 920-522-3131 to discuss the reasons for relinquishing your GSP BEFORE completing and submitting the Surrender Profile.
Note: We take purebred GSPs, and only under special circumstances may
we consider taking a GSP mix.
Overview

  1. Contact Wisconsin German Shorhaired Pointer Rescue Inc. (WGSPR) for a phone interview.
  2. Submit Surrender Profile and agreement.
  3. Evaluation of your GSP will be schedule with one of our volunteers.
  4. Following the evaluation, your GSP will either be matched to an appropriate adopter or placed in
        foster care, if available.  If we do not have available foster homes and the dog is able to stay with
         the owner we will ask that the dog remain with the owner until a permanent home can be found.
  5.  If the dog remains in the home until a direct adoption occurs the surrendering family may
         NOT pursue other placement options.

  1. GSP must have no history of bites or aggression towards humans.
  2. GSP should be up to date on all shots, including a recent heart worm test, and must be on heart
        worm  preventative or you can be charged for these services.

  2. A surrender fee of $75 plus additional veterinarian costs will be required, upon surrender of your
       GSP, to help defray the costs of our rescue service will be appreciated. This donation is
       tax-deductible and a receipt can be provided.  
  3. Provide veterinary records for your GSP and any other documentation you may have, i.e. original

  7. Provide at least two digital pictures of your GSP—one being a close-up face shot and one showing
