2018 Annual Pyr Appeal

2018 Annual Pyr Appeal

Thank You and Happy New Year.
We Made Our Goal!

This is what rescue is. This is what rescue takes. New Year's update on the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society. (Clockwise from top left) Brayley in Texas has survived the first round of patella surgery on her malformed knees. She hates the  huge *!#**#! cone but should now be accustomed to it for round two on her other knee in January. Harrowing week moving dogs from Texas to the West Coast. Moving slow on I-40 through New Mexico in a snowstorm means big delays for fosters and adopters waiting for dogs in Oregon and Washington. Back on track Saturday with dogs being delivered in Eugene and Newberg.

The Annual Pyr Appeal helps our neediest cases and other Pyrs coast to coast. We are so close to making our year-end funding goal. Please consider making a donation to NGPR and leaving a holiday message below. We have many dogs in rescue 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.

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 and message to National Great Pyrenees Rescue, P.O. Box 214, Maplecrest, NY 12454. We thank everyone who supports us throughout the year and especially at this time of giving.

*There is time lag between making a donation on Facebook and Facebook notifying us of who and how much the donation is for. Names, amounts and messages will be added to this page as soon as we receive them from Facebook.
