2022 Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal animation

We need your help this year more than ever. We are the rescue of last resort for many Great Pyrenees dogs and mixes found as strays or abandoned in shelters. This year has been more challenging than ever. Now, during the Annual Pyr Appeal, generous foundations and donors have made it possible to double your donation to National Great Pyrenees Rescue.

On the Saturday night after Thanksgiving, NGPR volunteers cut their holiday short and drove into a mountainous region of the Appalachians. Their mission—pick up a litter of six semi-feral Pyr puppies living under a barn to start them on their journey to better lives. Another rescue had committed to help but couldn’t go at the last minute.


Still more dogs on the premises needed rescue, so another trip was made on Monday to retrieve them. So far 12 dogs have been rescued from just this one breeder. We know there are many more breeders and unwanted dogs out there, a reflection of over-breeding and the slowed economy. We need your help to continue our work.

You can make a tax-free donation and leave your personal holiday message when you select a donation amount below. Dedicate your donation to a person or animal you love and your message will appear below. If you like, you can send your check and message to National Great Pyrenees Rescue, P.O. Box #86, Nanuet, NY 10954. We will enter your message below when it is received. We thank everyone who supports rescue throughout the year and especially now at this time of giving.
