2017 Annual Appeal


2015 Annual Pyr Appeal


Holiday Magic! Your Donation Is Now Doubled

Our Annual Pyr Appeal is on with a 1:1 match challenge once again this year! Our major donors have joined together to match the funds raised, so $25 becomes $50; $100 becomes $200, etc. Please consider making a donation to NGPR and leaving a holiday message below. See some of the many dogs we've rescued can  be seen on our holiday video. We have many neediest cases  and the sheer number of urgent dogs at shelters has made boarding costs soar. Pulling a dog from a shelter is only the beginning. Some dogs are with us for only a few weeks but others are with us for months or more while we address their medical or behavioral issues. If an adoption doesn’t work out, we are there to try again. We don't give up easily and are here for the long run!

Our Annual Appeal match is made possible by the generous support of Charles and Jennifer Laue, the John F. Welch Jr. Foundation, Christina Holmes, Wanda Flatters and Patricia Lillquist.

Please save your Paypal receipt as a record of your tax-deductible contribution which will be put to work directly for the dogs. National Great Pyrenees Rescue is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit and has received a gold star rating from GuideStar USA for non-profit transparency and accountability. 

Please enter your message and click on the donate box below or send your check to National Great Pyrenees Rescue, P.O. Box 214, Maplecrest, NY 12454. We thank everyone who has supported us this year and all our Annual Pyr Appeal contributors.
