Welcome | National Great Pyrenees Rescue

Holiday Rescues
Welcome to the home of National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR), the first place to look on the Internet for a rescued Great Pyrenees or to connect with a Pyr rescue group. NGPR is an all-volunteer, tax-exempt, non-profit organization whose mission is to save and rehome rescued Pyrenees in the U.S. and Canada.

We've been leading the fight to save Pyrs and Pyr mixes since 2006. Our online application makes it easy to apply for a dog but we offer much more than an online placement service.  

We give adopters expert advice and information about the breed so they can make the right choice and we stay with them throughout the adoption process and beyond. After that, our bi-monthly newsletter helps us keep in touch.

NGPR supports Pyr rescue efforts across the country, encourages the start-up of new Pyr rescue groups and urges all Pyr rescuers to work together to save more Pyrs. Our 2015 Great Pyrenees Calendar features over 140 rescue dogs and supports Pyr rescue coast-to-coast.

We have puppies (above) galore right now. Girls have red bows and boys green. If one of these pups catches your eye, visit our Rescue Dogs page for more information about him or her. This year we have 752 adoptions for 2014 through December 14. We understand that not everyone can foster or adopt, so if you can support the medical, transport and boarding needs of this dedicated, ongoing effort, please donate to save a life. We thank everyone for their support which makes national, organized Pyr rescue possible.
