Contacts

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.

In situations where states have no organized rescue, we have listed responsible rescuers in neighboring states. Not all groups work with Pyr mixes or place outside of their particular state or region, so it’s best to check with the group directly to verify their policies and procedures. Petfinder.com, which maintains state listings of rescue groups and shelters, is a good resource to check for rescue help in your area.

 Shelter & Surrender Hotline:  877-372-3273

Please DO NOT CALL the Shelter/Surrender number about adopting. We will not return your call.
The Shelter/Surrender number is reserved for Pyrs in Need.

If you belong to a rescue group that wants to update its listing, please contact director@nationalpyr.org.
