Great Pyrs & Paws Rescue is a 501c3 organization that was formed to rescue and rehabilitate the many Great Pyrenees and Great Pyrenees mixes that are abandoned & neglected, finding themselves in the rural kill shelters, and in need of loving homes both in Texas and in the Pacific Northwestern states. Our mission is to promote compassion and kindness for this incredible breed, spreading the word about the need for spay/neuter and proper care for Livestock Guardian Breeds, while ensuring that the Pyrs & Pyr-mixes that we have committed to care for are given the the best chance for a new start with loving families.
Primer on Pyrs
Great Pyrenees are known for their intelligence and loyalty. While we are thrilled you want to adopt, you should understand that this breed is different from most others. We’ve put together some great resources to get you started with your research.
Who We Are
We are excited to be the new face for Great Pyrenees rescue in Texas!
Great Pyrs & Paws Rescue is a partner with National Great Pyrenees Rescue (www.nationalpyr.org) and is excited to be the new face for Great Pyrenees rescue in Texas! Our rescue focuses on finding forever homes for the Pyrs in Texas and in the Pacific Northwestern states, by placing them with fosters and adopters in Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico and California.
We partner with transport companies such as Homeward Bound and Four Paws in Motion to safely get our Pyrs to the their destinations. We also welcome and support other transport arrangements, such as air travel, if the adopters prefer. Our transports are typically twice a month, so your new family member can arrive from Texas quickly.
