The mission of Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue is to help unite Great Pyrenees dogs with their prospective new homes. We also help reunite lost dogs with their owners and provide guidance for those folks who think that they might need to find a new home for their Great Pyrenees.
Not for profit breed-specific rescue organization - Great Pyrenees dogs. Small volunteer based organization with kennels located on over 30 beautiful acres in Battelfield Park (Varina, VA area). We achieve our mission by:
* Retrieving Pyrs from shelters/other sources so they may live to see another day.
* Accepting Pyrs from owners who cannot properly care for them.
* Accepting Pyrs who are failed livestock guardian dogs.
* Evaluating all Pyrs brought to our rescue in order to determine and provide necessary vet care.
* Placing only neutered/spayed Pyrs by having the necessary surgical procedures performed before placement.
* Providing education to prospective adopters about the rescue program, the breed and the requirements for taking care of Pyrs.
* Thoroughly screening applicants in an effort to find responsible, stable, safe, loving new homes for all rescued Pyrs.
* Providing a safe, healthy and loving environment to the rescued Pyrs until they can be rehomed.
* Providing socialization and training to increase the chances of successful placement.
* Providing post-adoption support for all Pyr owners.
