Volunteers with a Mission

Work with a caring, dedicated group of volunteers who are positively impacting the rescue and placement of Great Pyrenees dogs and Pyr mixes across the county. Join us on our rescue journey to help "Save More Pyrs." 

NGPR is partnering with our country's leading animal welfare organizations.  We received an ASPCA/Subaru "Share the Love" Rescue Ride grant and have been designated an HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) Emergency Placement Partner to shelter and care for animals rescued by HSUS from inhumane situations.  We have worked hard over the past ten years to earn the trust of these organizations and strive to be the "Best of Breed" rescue for Great Pyrenees and Pyr mix dogs. Volunteering is a learning experience and we provide support, information and training to give volunteers the skills and knowledge they need to make rescue a rewarding commitment.

National Great Pyrenees Rescue is proud to be recognized by the Petco Foundation for our lifesaving work. A $1,000 grant in 2017 for spaying/neutering will help us start more rescued Pyrs on the path to lifelong, loving homes. Thank you, Petco.

Volunteer Help Wanted

Please fill out the online volunteer application. If you completed a volunteer form before and were approved, then please email us to let us know of your current interest. Thanks.

Fostering is the most critical need for all rescue groups. We cover all approved expenses for foster dogs and provide monthly flea/tick and heartworm medication. Our foster homes are an integral part of the adoption process, giving dogs loving temporary homes until a suitable forever home can be found. Spending time in a foster home will provide a smooth transition for a dog into their "forever home". While the dog is with you, your input will help rescue volunteers find the best possible family match for the dog.

Please complete our online volunteer application so we can contact you. Completion of the application form and process is required of all new fosters. If you are an approved adopter from NGPR or one of our affiliated rescues, please include the name of the group and dog on the volunteer application so we can expedite processing your application.

In addition to fostering, there are many other ways you can help National Pyr Rescue. Perhaps you're just the right person to fill one of our available volunteer positions!
