2019 Annual Pyr Appeal

2018 Annual Pyr Appeal

Thank You to Everyone Who Donated!

We have reached the end of our 2019 fundraising journey. Thank you to everyone who came along with us and donated here and on Facebook. We raised over $100,000 for rescue with everyone's generous support to help our neediest cases and Pyrs coast-to-coast.

Some of our neediest dogs are females who have been overbred, neglected and abandoned. Noelle, top left, who is nine, came into rescue this month from a hoarding case, when no other rescue wanted her. We've had Capri, top right, who is ten, since August. We removed a tumor from her but her skin condition is only worsening. Daisy, bottom right, who is nine, has been in rescue for a year. She had a mastectomy this month. Sarah, bottom left is a young victim of neosporosis. She has been in rescue a year, too. Her condition will continue to decline from this degenerative neuromuscular disease. Please help us help this breed. Many of them have little hope or comfort, other than rescue.

The Annual Pyr Appeal gives you the opportunity to help these dogs and leave a holiday message when you 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 rescue throughout the year and especially at this time of giving.

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.

Facebook donors, there is a 2-day lag before we receive notice of your donation. If you have donated $25 or more on Facebook and would like to leave a holiday message below, please email us your message which will be added when we post your donation. Everyone else, please click the donate button below to make your donation and leave your message now. Thank you.
