NGPR has compiled the most accurate, up-to-date list of Pyr rescue organizations available, using color coding when possible to indicate rescue group category and level of effectiveness.

Please note that National Great Pyrenees Rescue is not responsible or liable for any business or activity related to any of these contacts. The color-coded rescue group rankings are based on adopter and rescue experience, and are subject to revision.

Not all groups are coded. These contacts are provided for informational purposes only. Contacts are listed alphabetically by state, with Canadian contacts following the state listings.
