Tribute Giving

Tribute Giving provides a meaningful way to reach out to family and friends while providing support for NorCal GSP Rescue's dogs. When your Tribute Gift is received, we will send a card or email to the person you designate, in your name. The amount of the gift is not mentioned. Memorial gifts allow you to celebrate the memory of those special individuals in your life. It's a way to honor those who cared so deeply about animals during their lives. You can also commemorate the life of a beloved companion animal. Honor gifts are available to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries, adoption days, or any special occasions. They celebrate the important people and animals in our lives.

You can also Print and Mail Your Donation

If you would like to set up a special tribute for a memorial, wedding, or another important occasion, please contact us and we will be happy to work with you to meet your needs. You'll receive a custom page with a link that you can share. Your page remains live for one year, then its contents are incorporated into a posting on this page.

In Memory of Moki

In late 2010, Moki came to us from a pound in Hanford, CA, following a tip from NorCal GSP. His first job was to comfort, Neysa, our senior GSP female, who had recently lost her long-time GSP male, Nick Von Excee. We soon learned from little hints that Moki was, in fact, a French Pointer – but all pointer nonetheless. Moki had a great 10-year run with us. We miss him so.

Jim passed on Oct. 11, 2014, after a short but valiant battle with leukemia. His great joy in retirement was raising two wonderful GSPs, Elizabeth and Molly. He trained them for hunting, but also he treated them as members of the family. When he became ill, his only regret was that he would not be able to care for them to the end of their lives.

He was happy every single day, and made the most of every moment despite losing vision, hearing and mobility. He never had a bad day. He loved everyone, every animal (whether it was a cat, dog or squirrel), and every vegetable he ever met. I’m so thankful he was in my life.

In Memory of Pierre

Pierre was a very calm and sweet boy. Nicknamed poohbear. He was the seeing-eye dog for my blind girl Fiona. He loved “his” bed, having heavy creamed coffee with me in the mornings. He is gone way too soon only 7 years 2 months. He died almost exactly 7 years after I got him. Now my son is worried about my safety because at 90 pounds Pierre was a great protector. He has chased many intruders out of my back yard. Fiona will just lick them to death.

In Memory of Odin and Spirit

In memory of Odin & Spirit, my best furry friends. They romp together now on the forever trail. Odin passed away 10 years ago and came back as Spirit shortly after.

In Memory of Mike Lubash

Mike always had a soft spot for animals, especially GSPs. Here he is with Missy Bo as a puppy. Now she is 14 and still going strong. I’m sure it has to do with the fact that she was his baby and that she thinks she is more human than dog. They went for walks every day, out to the gun club and there wasn’t a table scrap she didn’t get at least a nibble of. Mike passed away peacefully at home November 7, 2010. His family misses him dearly but takes comfort in the fact that he lived a good life and told us so all the time as well as how much he loved us. This memorial fund is a fitting tribute to Mike and his generous spirit.

In Memory of Nick and Honor of Dr. Schenck

On behalf of Dr. Schenck's good works – a wonderful vet and remarkable man. Nick von Excee was such a presence throughout his 12 1/2 years – he loved to hunt and swim, but he mostly and absolutely loved Natalie and Jim. They have made this generous donation to honor the generous heart that their best boy shared with them for too short a time.

Our Char-Char. He knew from the minute we met that he was home, it just took us a little while longer to figure it out. We miss you still Big Dog.

In Honor of Barbara Gale’s Birthday

In Memory of Tux (was Rex)

The most handsome boy in Miley’s litter left us way too early. Thanks to GSP Rescue he was loved and adored from day one to day 379. Loved and missed by Stephen and Robyn Drivon

In Memory of Buddy

Buddy was dumped at age 14 because he was too old to hunt, and he had the best 2 1/2 years that a dog could ever want. :) He died a month shy of his 17th birthday (coincidentally, our birthdays were on the same day). He charmed the pants off anyone who ever met him, a deliberately hilarious dog. No doubt he’s cruising around the clouds, happily instructing those who preceded him in the ways of his good AND bad habits, such as counter surfing, eating underwear, biting a pen cap in half or even a cell phone, jumping over mud puddles, shuffling his feet as though he were wearing slippers, snuffling the contents of a purse, outrunning a 45 year old woman (albeit one with a sprained ankle), and how to be hilariously good-natured 24/7. Boy do I miss that silly goose.

In Honor of Frida Kahlo

Thank you for saving Frida Kahlo, the princess of perfection. Great work all!

In Memory of Ron Sprouse and Naylor

From Donna Sprouse's dearest friends. Both Ron and Naylor are missed by their family and friends.

In Memory of Gracie

Gracie died in January 2009 and the hole in our hearts remains. She was our first GSP and easily the most intelligent and precocious. Gracie had a full life – she got off leash exercise daily (except during the numerous orthopedic fixes where she had to stay on leash) and she loved to chase critters-rabbits, squirrels, deer, etc. She was so fast and clever that she would occasionally catch a critter. She was always willing to give the critter up, EXCEPT for the times she caught a pheasant. Now a pheasant was a PRIME catch and NO ONE could have her pheasant. She also had more than one encounter with a porcupine in the Sierras while cross country skiing. We felt sorry for the porcupine as we watched Gracie run around it while it tried to keep her at bay. We never hunted with Gracie but her instinctual hunting ability was amazing and her point was beautiful. We have a picture of Gracie pointing when she was about 4 weeks old. Gracie had so many classic GSP traits – loyal, Velcro (follow from room to room), loving to family but standoffish with others, not allowing head touching, intelligent (show something once and learn it), insistent on getting what she wanted, and stoic. She had an Achilles tendon repair and had to wear an external fixator and she still insisted on going for a walk. In the end, even the osteosarcoma, which is supposed to be incredibly painful, did not stop Gracie for seven months, yet the vets all said she had only 2-6 weeks to live, primarily because of the pain. Gracie was the reason we became involved in GSP rescue. She was so even tempered that she was wonderful to use to evaluate shelter dogs. When she first met the shelter dogs, she would allow them to do almost anything – she would take their frantic behavior and would look away, give calming signals and diffuse negative energy. If a shelter dog went after Gracie, it was almost always dog aggressive. We miss Gracie so much and love her dearly. We wait for the time when she can be back in our lives. We hope she is frolicking at the Rainbow Bridge with her boxer pal, Icky.

In Memory of Fred Gillilan

Fred was a long-time lover of GSPs, and along with his wife Kim fostered for our rescue group. He fought a very hard battle against his brain tumor (glioblastoma multiforme) and finally succumbed to the effects of the treatment. In a fitting tribute to Fred, Kim has established The Fred Gillilan Memorial Fund to provide veterinary care for needy rescued GSPs. Additional donors: Brian & Sandra Arvin, Rick & Malia Burrows, Jeff & Tammy Casalegno, Chris & Jackie Berryessa, Mike & Ranell Stephens, Lori Gillilan, Monica & Joseph Rock, Russ Sell, Ed, Tom & Becky Enciso
