Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We rescue Great Pyrenees dogs in the Southeast region of the US. Great Pyrenees are being overbred in this area and sold to people that just don't understand their needs. They seek us out after the dog gets too big, or begins to develop unwanted tendencies.

Charting impact

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

We are hoping to educate people about the Great Pyrenees breed, and to encourage them to NOT breed them. We take in about 100-200 Great Pyrenees each year. We provide vet care and get them all spay/neutered. Microchipped and cleaned up. And then we adopt them out to people that understand the breed and are able to provide a good home for them.

We teach people, starting with students from local high schools. We attend adoption events. We house multiple dogs at our rescue and encourage people to come out and meet our dogs. To interact with them and learn more about them so that they can adopt the dog that fits their lives.

We have a 2 acre facility and we provide shelter and training for the dogs that come here.

Well, here is what the dogs have to say about that. 500 rescued so far,


Sanctuary Dogs

The Great Pyrenees Rescue of Western NC also operates as a Sanctuary for Great Pyrenees that are in need of long term foster. We have several older Great Pyrenees that were no longer wanted by their owners, and we felt they were too old to be adopted out. I keep them here and provide food, shelter, and any and all medical attention that they might need. Right now, we have Porter, Buddy, Sunshine, Sophie, Damon, Zeus and Sam in our Sanctuary program. They are all great dogs, but we are content to let them stay here as long as they want to.

The dogs out here at the rescue wrote a “poem” for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I am a Sanctuary Dog.

I came to this place because, well, nobody wanted me.

Not sure why. It could have been lots of reasons

Or just pick one,

I drool too much,

I bark all night.

I shed, A LOT.

I like to explore the neighborhood.

I may have growled at someone too much

I might have bitten somebody

They deserved it

I got bigger than they expected.

I got sick, vets are expensive.

I don’t know, it just didn’t work out.

I was a cute puppy, maybe too cute.but now

I am going through an awkward stage.

I like to chew things

I don’t like to catch things or play Frisbee.

I was loyal. I was protective.

I loved them, they said they loved me.

My owners moved and didn’t have room for me.

I don’t know, but I am glad there is a place for me.

He took us in, unconditionally.

I will be better. I will bark less?

I still drool, he doesn’t care.

I shed a lot, he brushes me.

I chew things, but he just laughs.

I dig holes in the yard, he fills them back up.

I run away, he tracks me down.

He bought me a collar, and put MY name on it.

He put his phone number on it.

He put a chip in me, in case I get lost.

We should be protecting him, but I think he is protecting us

I was having trouble climbing stairs, he built me a ramp.

He feeds me a lot, he doesn’t eat much

He spends a lot of time with us, doesn’t have any time for his friends

He made sure we don’t have any puppies, that stung a little

He said we can stay here as long as we like

We’ve heard that before, but I think he means it

So, we are the Sanctuary dogs,

think about us before you buy a puppy.
