Perthshire Gundog Rescue has been set up to help rescue unwanted Gundogs and Gundog Breeds.
The Rescue is committed to the welfare of all dogs that come into our care, and endeavour to make a positive contribution to their lives, no matter what their circumstances. We aim also to educate people about Gundog Breeds prior to taking them on, and are often called by people wondering about their suitability to own one of these, intelligent working bred dogs.
PGR works with and rehomes rescue dogs according to their individual needs. This could possibly be a Pet working bred dog going on to become and active working gundog or a dog who has possible failed as a gundog for what ever reason will be matched up and rehomed into a suitable active pet home. We also help retired gundogs of all ages (PLEASE DONT OVER LOOK THE OLDIES THEY HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE). All our dogs are cared for in foster homes so they are assessed fully so we can get to know them well. Each rescue dog and its situation is an individual one and is treated as such.
We also aim to be a support to Pet and Working home owners with gundog breeds who may need our help with concerns such as training, behaviour or nutrition. We work with Qualified and very experienced trainers, behaviourists & vets to give everyone the support they need to fulfill their dog's lives. We have helped many people who have been at their witts end not coping with their dogs who felt they needed to rehome them, working with them they have happlily been able to keep their dogs.
We also pride ourselves in getting people actively invovled in Gundog Training which helps hugely in stimulating working bred dogs, regardless of whether they will be worked in the shooting field. It also gives people a better understanding about the stimulation working bred dogs need. This makes for a happier life for the dogs and their owners.
We cant make any of this possible without the help of volunteers and of course the much needed fundraising. If you would like to apply to become a volunteer or have a great idea for fundraising or would just love to give a donation then please get in touch. You can email us or give us a call. Our details are on our contact page.
Please note, only people who have gone through all of our new homing checks will have a dog placed with them. We also do not have a rescue centre where the public can visit. PGR is soley run by volunteers.
