Valentine’s Day 2019

Valentine’s Day 2019

Brian and I are always trying to think of more ways we can help dogs in need. This Valentineโ€™s Day Brian bought me a portable photography lighting kit and backdrop set. Not only will this be fun to use with our own pack, but the overall thought is that we could mesh one of my favorite activities (taking dog photos) and our biggest mutual passion (helping dogs in need). We plan to offer to take free photos of needy pups that shelters/rescues can use on social media in hopes to help some homeless pups find their forever families. …Now to figure out how to use the lighting correctly, learn how to shoot good indoor photos, and reach out to local shelters/rescues to see if theyโ€™d be interested!

Thank you,ย  Brian!

Scooby

Scooby is a 9-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer.

His owner contacted GSP Rescue of NJ because he wanted to surrender him.ย  Scooby’s owner no longer could dedicate the proper time to him after he and his wife had a child.

Brian visited Scooby at his home and did the initial evaluation for the rescue.ย  Brian also drove back to the home to pick up Scooby to take him to the vet so that Scooby could get neutered and receive necessary shots and veterinary care before he could join the rescue.

Brian and I then went to the vet to pick Scooby up after he was ready to be discharged.ย  Here he is leaving the vet office.

Scooby is as sweet as can be! We got to spend some time with him at the vet while we were waiting for his discharge papers.

Brian drove the first let of Scooby’s transport.ย  I couldn’t go since the drive-time would be longer than we are comfortable leaving our dogs without a potty break.ย  I was glad I got to meet Scooby and wish him well in his new adventures!

Brian left to drive Scooby up to North Jersey, where another GSP Rescue of NJ volunteer would do the second leg of his transport.

Brian said Scooby was a great passenger!

Scooby was handed off to our fellow rescue friend, Michele, who drove him into NYC so he could meet his Foster Mom!

Here is Scooby meeting his foster mom in The Big Apple!

Welcome to the start of your new life, Scooby!
