Join our team of volunteers who are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming Great Pyrenees dogs and Pyr mixes across Texas and the Pacific Northwest. We are seeking students and/or experienced videographers and photographers to volunteer their time and craft through documenting the challenging and equally rewarding aspects of dog rescue. Volunteers will be responsible for designing creative content using videos and images to convey to viewers that saving dogs and educating others about the importance of a collective effort needed to reduce the number of homeless dogs and as well as the number of euthanized dogs ending up in shelters.
Main location will be Temple, TX but additional opportunities that require travel may be asked of the volunteers but travel is not required.
Those interested in joining our team will be asked to share a brief example of their work. This is a great opportunity for students and start ups to establish a portfolio as well as do volunteer work that matters.

Great Pyrs & Paws Rescue is a 501c3 organization that was formed to rescue and rehabilitate the many Great Pyrenees in need of loving homes both in Texas and in the Pacific Northwestern states. Our mission is to promote compassion and kindness for this incredible breed, while ensuring that the Pyrs that we have committed to care for are given the the best chance for a new start with loving families.
Formed in April 2020 with support from National Great Pyrenees Rescue we received our 501c3 May 2020. With a start up volunteer base of approximately 70 individuals across the United States we've successfully adopted 100 Great Pyrenees and Pyr mixes to adopters across multiple states...and we've just got started! Our rescue focuses on finding forever homes for the Pyrs in Texas and in the Pacific Northwestern states, by placing them with fosters and adopters in Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico and California. The Great Pyrenees is one of the oldest livestock guardian dog breeds, and for hundreds of years they have been bred to think independently. True gentle giants Great Pyrenees are intuitive, independent thinkers and formidable protectors and companions who may seem almost human at times!
