HERE'S TO 2018!
GSP Rescue Southwest DBA Utah's Perfect Pointers needs your
help! We've had an amazing 2017 and have had 77 dogs and one cat (don't
ask!) in our rescue groups so far this year. With 23 days left in
December we know there will be a few more arriving to help celebrate the
new year. UPP alum "Shadow" on the left and his foster brother
Sherlock on the right went to see Santa to ask for funding to help get
all the Things That Point who aren't as lucky as they are to have a home
for the holidays. They know there are two full weeks when their rescue
lady needs to find alternate boarding for them and it's always a
struggle to find and pay for it.
You can help! Amazing
foster mom, Lynne Williams, is donating $1000 in matching funds to get
this effort started. She's the one who took Shadow and Sherlock to
visit Santa so they could whisper in his ear. For every dollar you
donate - up to $1000 - she'll match it! How great is that?!

Foster Homes Needed!!!
We Always Need Fosters!
survived the long weekends in July and August but foster homes are always needed!
We have dogs that will fit in with almost any lifestyle from couch
potato to lots and lots of activity. There are a few more in the latter
category (after all, they're pointers!). If you're able to foster
long- or short-term, please email email@example.com and we'll send you a foster application.

COME STRUT YOUR MUTT WITH US!!!
Utah's Perfect Pointers is participating in the 2016 Strut Your Mutt event at Liberty Park on October 22! Yes, we're aware
that it probably will be snowing, but pointers and their friends love snow!!!
We’re raising money to help us with the care and feeding of our
homeless hunters. We're a tiny "group" of pointer and weim lovers
who've been working hard for the last 8 years to rehome these lovely
dogs. And we've done it with help from the entire community. Thank you
to so many for your support over the years.
I'm always amazed at the temperaments of our dogs who are so quick
and eager to be loved after the pretty wretched lives so many of them
have had. This is a remarkable breed group - - goofy, too smart for their
own good, steadfastly loyal (until they see a bird), and totally
charming in so many ways. They're energetic beyond belief and
frequently end up in shelters or KSL because their homes just aren't
equipped to deal with their high energy and exercise needs.
Our focus for this years' event is our "special needs" dogs. We seem to have collected a number of special needs dogs in 2015 and 2016. In 2014 one-third of our 93 dogs were special needs. In 2015 we've taken in 10 so far. They're generally in our program for awhile - some over a year. I love it that you're there for the doggies! We hope to see all of you there.
