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 currently seeking individuals to help walk, socialize, and care for our dogs at the Kingwood Kennels in Kingwood, TX. These dogs are pulled from high kill shelters, found as strays, or are owner surrenders and their first stop is the kennels while we prepare them for transport to fosters in TX, OR, and WA. Schedule can vary.

Purpose Great Pyrs & Paws Rescue is a 501c3 organization with a network of volunteers across the United States. We rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome unwanted, displaced, and neglected Great Pyrenees along with other Livestock Guardian dogs that are abandoned in high kill shelters throughout Texas. By placing them in caring and nurturing foster homes we are able to successfully adopt them to loving homes throughout the Western United states. Our mission is to engage community members to promote better treatment of these dogs and reduce euthanasia numbers through adoptions, education, and other resources. Vision: GPPR is at the forefront of generating awareness concerning the mistreatment and over-population of Livestock Guardian Breeds.
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!
