Foster Homes Needed!!!

We Always Need Fosters!

The long weekends in July and August are coming and foster homes are always needed! We have dogs that will fit in with almost any lifestyle from couch potato to lots and lots of activity. There are a few more in the latter category (after all, they're pointers!). If you're able to foster long- or short-term, please email [email protected] and we'll send you a foster application.

SAVERS Fundraiser for The Dogs!

Our Featured Dog

I'm DAVIS! I'm a gorgeous GSP boy with the most interesting coloring my rescue lady's ever seen. I'm tall (~ 25.5") and handsome and very nicely behaved - except for going over fences. But I'm a GSP! I have things to do, places to see, and I'm very interested in everything. My approximate DOB is 3/6/2013. I'm doing well with all my dog buddies in daycare. Now I'm looking for my perfect home.

COME STRUT YOUR MUTT WITH US!!!

Utah's Perfect Pointers is participating in the 2019 Strut Your Mutt event at Liberty Park on October 12!


We’re raising money to help us with the care and feeding of our homeless hunters. We're a tiny "group" of pointer lovers who've been working hard 

for the last 8 years to rehome these lovely dogs. And we've done it with help from the entire community. Thank you to so many for your support over the years.

I'm always amazed at the temperaments of our dogs who are so quick and eager to be loved after the pretty wretched lives so many of them have had. This is a remarkable breed group - - goofy, too smart for their own good, steadfastly loyal (until they see a bird), and totally charming in so many ways. They're energetic beyond belief and frequently end up in shelters or KSL because their homes just aren't equipped to deal with their high energy and exercise needs.

Our focus for this years' event is our "special needs" dogs. We seem to have collected a number of special needs dogs In 2019 we've had 23 of 62 special needs dogs so far (May 2019). That's over half of our total numbers. They're generally in our program for awhile - some over a year. We love it that you're there for the doggies! We hope to see all of you there.
