NATIONAL GREAT PYRENEES RESCUE

Maplecrest, NY   |  http://www.nationalpyr.org/

Mission

Our mission is to facilitate the placement of unwanted, displaced and abandoned Great Pyrenees dogs into safe, caring companion homes and to help all deserving dogs of Great Pyrenees origin find good homes across the country. We do not distinguish between dogs that come from pet stores, puppy mills or breeders, and we do not discriminate against Pyr mixes. NGPR's sole purpose is to support Great Pyrenees rescue efforts so together we can all "Save More Pyrs".

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

NGPR, through its web site, nationalpyr.org, will publicize and promote the breed and Pyrs in need of rescue, rehabilitation and adoption.
NGPR will provide accurate information about the breed and promote education about the breed.
NGPR will support existing, legitimate Pyr rescue groups and their activities and will help new rescue groups become established in places where effective breed rescue does not currently exist.
NGPR will work with established, reputable Great Pyrenees rescue groups to facilitate highly selective, one-on-one placement of Great Pyrenees dogs across the country.
NGPR will work with other national groups to promote the regulation of pet stores, puppy mills and breeders to avoid the excess production and discarding of animals.

Social media and networking sites to maintain communications between shelters, rescuers and adopters.
Transport of dogs out of high-kill shelter states into states where they are wanted.
Use of online tools (Petfinder, Adopt-A-Dog) needed to place dogs effectively and efficiently.
Fund-raise on a national basis to provide aid and relief for Pyr rescues throughout the country.
Creation of breed specific and educational rescue dog information critical to keeping dogs in their homes.
