First of all, we all at GSP Rescue (SW) wish you all a Happy and Prosperous 2012 :)

2011 proved to be our busiest year yet, and here are a few statistics for you:-

99 dogs offered for rehoming

50 surrendered from UK homes
38 taken in from Ireland
6 taken from UK pounds
5 taken from Europe


More dogs were fostered this year than ever before ...... 17 this year

Of those most were only in foster for a week or 2, although 4 did stay in foster for several months, but all eventually found new and loving homes

Over 450 new familes registered an interest in adopting a GSP during 2011

Many other families were given advice about their GSPs, which resolved possible issues and enabled them to keep their dogs - that aspect of the rescue work is very rewarding - but very time-consuming too

I'd also like to thank my own dogs for their patience over the past year. They have put up with 10 different foster dogs staying here (including a foster dog from another rescue! :wink: ). They were great with all of them - even when I had 3 foster dogs here at once, and on two other occasions, two at once. Some only stayed a week or two, but others like Piper, Sheba and Jody shared our home for several months. In fact I think we only had about 2 months in the past year when there was only my 3 dogs here! So they really were stars ......

To finish this brief summay, may I send thanks to all of those who have helped with the rescue over the past year - whether it be helping me with administration; fund-raising; fostering; etc. and most of all to those who have offered a new home to one of our dogs.


Dawn on the beach yesterday, 31st December 2011 - what a lovely morning to see the old year out. :)

Thank you all.

First of all, we all at GSP Rescue (SW) wish you all a Happy and Prosperous 2013 :)

2012 proved to be our busiest year yet, and here are a few statistics for you:-

105 dogs offered for rehoming

65 surrendered from UK homes
21 adults taken in from Ireland (+ 9 'stowaway' puppies!)
2 taken from UK pounds
8 taken from Europe


More dogs were fostered this year than ever before ...... 18 adults this year (+Chloe's 9 puppies)

Of those most were only in foster for a week or 2, apart from Chloe and the puppies, who took up 4 months of foster space with Sarah. All eventually found new and loving homes

Over 320 new familes registered an interest in adopting a GSP during 2012

Many other families were given advice about their GSPs, which resolved possible issues and enabled them to keep their dogs - that aspect of the rescue work is very rewarding - but very time-consuming too

Once again I'd also like to thank my own dogs for their patience over the past year. Particular mention needs to be made of having Chloe and her 9 puppies living with us for almost 4 months, which was a trial for us all, but the girls were brilliant. They had to put up with their routine being completely disrupted; their house access being limited; and then having to share with 10 strangers - most of whom had no manners what so ever!!! They were great with all of them......
