Christmas at the Kennel

 Tune in every Saturday at 1 pm to our Facebook page to meet our featured Springfield dog

Fourth Annual Christmas Broadcast December 25 at 11 am

Santa will be back at our Springfield kennel on Wednesday, December 25. Tune in to our broadcast at 11 am on Facebook to see Santa and the whole gang! 

We want to take some time this giving season to thank everyone who has supported the kennel this year. This includes Joan Ellis, Michael Josie, Todd and Julie Chakeres, Pyr Bliss Farm, Heritage Farms, Mona Cossaboom, Sheri Doken, Joel and Angela Duvall, Karen Edwards, Mary Lou Garey, Barb and Marty Haubrich, Bonnie Jameson, Julie and George Petrohilos, Greg Roy, Steve Grove, Liili Girvin, Margaret Smith, Debbie Sparks, Linda and John Symthers, the Friends of St. Francis, Bone a Fido, the RescueBank, PetValue and all the anonymous donors who have contributed.

We also want to thank Susan and Terry Brennan for their continous support of our New Beginnings rescue kennel, which is housed on the grounds of the Lucky Mutz Pet Resort. In addition to boarding, Lucky Mutz offers pet grooming and day care.  Please give them a call at (937) 325-3273.

Like other rescues this time of year, we are maxed out. We are dealing with many Pyrs abandoned to kill shelters in the South who will die without rescue. Requests from owners who can no longer keep their dogs are pouring in, too. We desperately need more foster homes to take the ever-increasing number of Pyrs needing rescue.  Please consider fostering to save a life.

If you are going to be in Ohio, come on by to visit the dogs. The adoption fee for dogs picked up at the kennel is $300. Approved adopters can meet the dogs, save the $175 transport fee or put it towards a hotel and gas. If you can't drive, transport is available. All the dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested for heartworm.

Fill out the adoption application at or email us and let us know who you are interested in! Everyone at the kennel is very friendly and helpful. Volunteers do the dog walking, feeding, watering, leash training and help with socializing the dogs. Our volunteers will make your day visiting the kennel worth the trip.

You can visit to see the pooch profiles for all our dogs.  Here are some of the dogs currently at the Springfield kennel looking for their furever homes.


Gracie is a super nice three-year-old who is in need of a home and a great family of her own. She's a real sweetie who really loves her people.  Visit Gracie's pooch profile to learn more about her.










Hero is the new boy at the kennel who is as nice as can be. He came to NGPR from Missouri.  You can read Hero's pooch profile to learn more about him.









This pretty girl with the expressive eyes is Sasha, a Pyr Anatolian mix. She is only four years old and would like a foster or furever home of her own.  Visit her pooch profile to learn all about her or view this video of Sasha & her stick.
