KGA Rescue

The Korthals Griffon Association not only promotes and protects the Korthals Griffon  but are also committed to supporting and assisting Korthals Griffons and their families in need. The KGA Committee aim to raise funds and awareness for Korthals Griffons in need of urgent care or rehoming.

Since 2015 we have attended Living Heritage events across the country educating the public and raising money for the rescue fund with our Tombola/raffle, where we have both adult and child prizes! By frequently visiting our website you can see when our next events are, visit our rescue page & leave a message if you know of any KGs in need of aid and come join in the fun for a great cause! This summer Top Collar  kindly donated treat packets for our Tombola to help raise even more money for our rescue fund!


Alternatively, if you have access to our social media pages you can keep up to date on KG rehoming and rescue; below are a couple of KGs in need of new homes and care.

This lovely fella named Geronimo is 7 years old. Good with other dogs, cats and children. Very affectionate. Chipped, vaccinated and castrated. About 50km west of Paris. Up for adoption due to divorce.


The KGA have been asked to assist with finding Winston his forever home. This beautiful French sweet boy is up for adoption as his family are relocating to the Far East due to a job transfer. He is 13 months old, has basic obedience training and is fully Passported. Excellent with children but a bit dubious with cats. His pedigree is a very good one coming from well established working lines. Please PM for details.


UPDATE on Winston.
“He will soon be with his forever family in Kent. He will become a part of a family that closely mirrors his own so hopefully a easier transition for him.
I love happy endings.
Thank you all for your good wishes and offerings to provide Winston with a loving home.” -Colleen Porter, President of the KGA

KGA Event

The KGA visited the Sandringham Estate, North Norfolk, for the Sandringham Game and Country Show where we displayed the Korthals Griffons for the public, answered any questions people had about the breed, hunting and training practices.


Friday 9th September 2016

After a 4 hour drive to Norfolk we arrived to Sandringham Estate and although it was not raining we did experience a lot of wind, which is never good when you have a tent to put up, let alone a 12 man tent in the dark. Needless to say we managed to put the tent up before midnight with the help of a lovely lady named Paula, if it wasn’t for her help I’m not sure we would have had a tent left. Kindness from strangers at a time of need really is one of the best feelings.

Saturday 10th September 2016

We woke up early to heavy rain and a leaking tent, not the best thing to wake up too but we fixed what we needed and set up the KGA stand in the gun dog display tent and began to prepared ourselves for the day. Although it rained throughout the day the turn out was much better than expected and we managed to meet a lot of friendly people interested in the breed and the KGA.

Sunday 11th September 2016

The last day of the Sandringham Game and Country Show was glorious, the sun beamed all day and we were able to dry off all our wet clothes and even the tent. It was an extremely busy day with lots of people, activities and conversations. In our free time we managed to look at some of the other displays and buy some new gear for the dogs and ourselves for the KGA’s next event at Bowood. I managed to take a few nice photo’s for the KGA website thanks to the warm weather, making up for the lack of photos I had taken on the Saturday because of the rain. You can see some of the photo’s below:
