raising funds to support neglected or abandoned Pointers
Pointers in Need
The Pointers in Need (PIN) team, together with our beloved Pointers, are excited to attend Pointerfest 2019. We will be on hand to promote all the beautiful Pointers we have available for adoption, who are longing to find their own loving homes. We’d love to chat about how you can get involved, such as becoming a fosterer, fundraiser or helping to spread the word about our work.
Look out for our stall with the distinctive blue bunting where we hope to tempt you with branded PIN goodies including our popular t-shirts and hoodies, exclusive ‘Bob the Pointer’ mugs, badges, keyrings, and an array of beautiful Pointer greetings cards designed especially for us. There will be a special Pointerfest raffle, plus extra surprises on the day.
So please stop by and let’s talk ‘Pointers’ all day. We have particularly high hopes for success in the famous ‘sausage snaffling’ competition! See you there. CLICK HERE to visit Pointers In Need's website
Pointer Rescue Service
Make sure you pay a visit to the Pointer Rescue Service (PRS) Stand at Pointerfest 2019. With an impressive record of saving numerous Pointers from here in the UK and abroad, there will be Friends of PRS on hand to tell you more about our organisation, our values and an opportunity to find out more about the extraordinary breed we all love so much.
As ever, no rescue is cheap as funds are needed for medical checks, neutering, chipping and obtaining passports before the transportation can even begin. PRS will be able to tell you exactly how they achieve these amazing rescues and what goes on behind the scenes.
PRS will be running our traditional tom bola with all sorts of prizes on offer so get your tickets early to make sure you are in with a chance of winning. CLICK HERE to visit the Pointer Rescue Service website

GSP Rescue UK
GSP Rescue UK is the official German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue. We are proud to be a registered Charity that is run by a dedicated team of volunteers.
When rehoming a dog, our main priority is to look at the individual characteristics and background of each dog to find a home that suits them as well as possible. For example, we look at whether they would prefer to live as an only dog, if they like children or not and how much activity and ongoing retraining they may need.
We then match the dog to several of our wonderful home offers. We work alongside breeders and very closely with the owner. They help us select that dog's most perfect match; they are the ones who know the dog the best. If necessary, we also take dogs into a foster home with a qualified dog behaviourist where the dog can be assessed and retraining can begin, if needed.
We encourage the sharing of information between the owner and the prospective adopter, so that they can make the adoption as fluid and easy for the dog as possible. We then give advice and support throughout that dog's lifetime and if ever that dog needs our help we will be happy and proud to be there to do what is needed to continue to give that dog a very happy life.
Honey’s is a traditional, family-run business. Our kitchens are based in the depths of rural Wiltshire, making and providing raw food for dogs (and cats).

The business was started by Vicky Marshall and Jonathan Self. We have a full Healthcare team supporting sick and poorly dogs along with their vet, sharing feeding notes and care plans.
Honey’s is small and friendly (you may sometimes hear dogs and children in the background when you call) and we know all of our canine customers by name (we even have photographs of most of them).

The Bark Side
The Bark Side is proud to provide dog products that don’t cost the Earth.
Everything in the shop has been tested by Brutus, The Bark Side dog (if we’re honest, Brutus is also the boss). If it doesn’t pass his rigorous testing regime (and indeed some have failed miserably) then it has no place on The Bark Side.
Stocking quality products from brands such as Beco Pets, West Paw, and Lupine, The Bark Side offers dog toys, bowls, collars, leads, and more, that are a bit different, quirky even. And because climate change just isn’t cool, The Bark Side works to minimise its impact on the environment by stocking eco friendly products.
Lupine collars and leads made from recycled plastic bottles? Check. Lifetime guarantee, even if chewed? Yep.
Beco bowls made from super-sustainable bamboo? Yes. Tough toys made from rice husk rubber? Uh-huh. Lifetime guarantee? Affirmative.
West Paw toys for tough chewers? Of course. One-time, no-questions-asked, replacement? Naturally.
And if you’re still not convinced, consider this: everything on The Bark Side is below RRP. Permanently.
Come over to The Bark Side, where quality, value, and eco credentials matter.
