About Us

We are a volunteer-based organisation with our main focus on the rescue and responsible rehoming of Pointing dog breeds: mainly (but not restricted to) German/English Pointers and Vizslas in South Africa. We focus on purebred dogs from these breeds as well as obvious cross breeds. We also network lost and found Pointing dogs; arrange for the safekeeping of stray dog; assist with information to support prospective and existing owners of these breeds and arrange walks to be enjoyed by owners and dogs.

We are a registered Non Profit Company, registration number 2016/168762/08.

To facilitate responsible rehoming of Pointing dog breeds in South Africa to homes that understand and love the breeds and can offer a home in which these dogs’ needs will exceedingly be met.

We rehome dogs surrendered to us in a responsible manner. Our adoption fee ensures that each dog rehomed through us are sterilised, micro-chipped, vaccinations are updated if needed and dewormed. Home checks are done and we follow up with these precious dogs placed under our responsibility. We work with other shelters and rescue organisations and network dogs in our focus breeds to be rehomed through them. Our core members are situated in Gauteng and Cape Town and we have an extensive network and support system covering most regions of South Africa. We also work closely with selected breeders who we believe have responsible breeding programmes and work to maintain good breed standards – many of these breeders refer potential adopters to us, offer support in terms of breed understanding and often offer to foster dogs until we can get them into our boarding facility or an alternative foster home.
