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 volunteers to help screen submitted adoption applications for potential adopters. Our ACs process several applications per week by calling the applicants veterinarian to establish history of medical care, review fence and yard photos, and conduct phone interviews to identify goodness of fit for dogs in our care. ACs discuss Pyr traits educating potential adopters about these gentle giants and assist the adopters with transport pick up and follow up to ensure adopter is well supported while acclimating their new family member into their home.
If interested fill out a volunteer application on our website: https://greatpyrsandpaws.org/
Or inquire from this posting and a volunteer will reach out.
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!
