Welcome! Thank you for visiting!  

We are a volunteer run foster-based animal rescue dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of Great Pyrenees dogs whose lives are in danger.  Absolutely 100% of all donations go to the dogs that we care for. Most of our dogs come to us from kill shelters around the Central Texas, South Texas and Greater Houston area. We place them in foster homes in the Pacific Northwest and Texas while they are evaluated and rehabilitated until we find a permanent home for them.  We transport and adopt to Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, and other states near the Pacific NW, along with Texas.  There are so many more wonderful, majestic, and deserving Great Pyrenees needing help in Texas than we have places for. The only way we can save these precious dogs is with your help. We always need temporary foster homes, donations, volunteers' help and of course if you can give a dog a permanent home, you'll complete our dream. Thank you to all for your help and support in saving this true Gentle Giant breed.

GPRS & COVID-19 - An Update:  Due to the restrictions from COVID-19, we are experiencing difficulties with transport, and we are having very limited meet-and-greets for adoptions.  We have also experienced a significant increase in adoption applications, and our volunteers are working diligently through the backlog during this application surge.  We appreciate your patience, as the adoption process is taking a longer time, and we are doing the best that we can in this situation
