Our Purpose

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.

Adopting Our Dogs

We have puppies, adults and Pyrs with special needs that are all looking for their forever home. Before you decide on the one for you, take a look at the adoption process and the requirements we have.

Helping the Pyrs

Adopting a large dog isn’t a commitment that everyone can make, but there are other ways you can help them. Sign up to be a foster, share your time walking and socializing them, or help with some of their needs to just name a few.

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 ( 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.
