1st Pointer-Friends Rescue Center on Cyprus
A dream finally came true!
We have long dreamed of having our own Rescue Center where we can practice exemplary animal welfare.
In May 2018 the time had finally come and we opened the 1st Pointer-Friends Rescue Center in Cyprus!
“Pledge A Brick“: Sponsorship Scheme for Dog Rescue Centre
Our charity “Pointer-Freunde / Pointer-Friends” has been working in Cyprus for almost four years now.
To date we have helped more than 150 dogs; not only by rehoming abroad, we are also trying to help on Cyprus with spaying programs and helping other charities and organisations; this is one of our main focuses.
The helping of pointers in distress in our Association, whether locally or abroad, is very close to our heart. The placement of dogs from abroad into Germany is only a reaction and a short-term and direct help for the individual local dogs.
However with that the situation will not improve abroad. For long-lasting help one must start much earlier and with parallel work on various “fronts”.
P.A.D.S. Psychologically Affected, Disabled and Senior-Pointers

But the number of Psychologically Affected, Disabled and Senior-Pointers increases as well.
These Pointers need special care and a lot of understanding, patience and love. Maybe even more love and especially time as any other Pointer in need.

ELMO was found wandering loose in a village in Cyprus. Initially he was fed in the street by supermarket staff. He then found the seashore and wandered up to the centre of the village. He was advertised on the village website hoping his owner would come forward to...read more
If you consider the adoption of a dog from abroad and research about it, you will inevitably repeatedly encounter terms such as ‘Mediterranean diseases’, ‘Leishmaniasis’ or ‘Ehrlichiosis’.
A “protection fee” is not a purchase price” – it fulfills rather different purposes: Coverage of accrued costs and also creates a “barrier” not to get a dog thoughtlessly.
