Your contribution goes directly to helping the dogs. Although the number of volunteers and dogs has grown dramatically, we continue to be an all-volunteer non-profit organization with all donations going to the dogs. You can read about our mission, vision and credentials here. Our dedication to actively supporting front-line rescuers with funding and logistical support has not faltered as we enter our seventh year. We continue to underwrite costly medical expenditures and organize weekly transports to move dogs out of high-kill areas. Our neediest cases, 800 shelter and adoption hotline numbers, and owner surrender programs assist Pyrs and Pyr owners throughout the United States. Your help is essential as the national rescue effort continues grows and we extend our outreach efforts.
We want to thank everyone who contriubuted to our 2012 Annual Appeal. The results can be seen here.
New Year's Resolutions
Heart was rescued from an abusive Finger Lakes Breeder on 12/22/12. Left, he is shown stuffed into a filthy, rusted crate that he can't stand up in. On the right he is shown shaved down and wearing a brand new sweater to keep him warm. "I will never be matted or filthy again." Can you donate time or make a contribution to groom a rescue dog?
Napoleon, found in June (left) in rural Alabama, was badly sliced by barbed wire. Now known as Sir Edmund (right), he is in his furever home in New Hampshire "I am happy and home, I will never be lost or injured again." Can you foster or contribute to boarding a Pyr who has been injured or strayed until rescue can find a home for her or him?
Lily (left), was abandoned by her owner who couldn't afford her meds and couldn't take her with her when she moved. In addition to her Addison's disease, Lily blew out her cranial cruciate ligament (right) and needed a TPLO. Rescue found a caring foster and spent $3,000 to fix her knee. "I've been down and out but I'm coming back on top." Can you help a dog with medical isues like Lily's get back on her feet?
We're very active on Facebook and the nationalpyr.org website is updated weekly. Your donation to National Pyr supports Pyr rescue operations in 40 states. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation so Pyr rescue can be there throughout the year for all the dogs.
You can also help rescue by buying through IGive where rescue gets a percentage of goods purchased online. IGive lists 922 stores including Amazon, L.L. Bean, Pet Care RX, PetSmart, Sears.com where your purchase benefits rescue. To register with IGive, specify National Great Pyrenees Rescue as your charity and they take care of the rest.
