raised two Great Pyrenees I never got over their
loyalty and good nature. I found that I constantly
thought about them and wanted to have another
"Pyr". *This in spite of the fact that I have
several other pets including eight other dogs
and 7 cats*
I live in Long
Beach, Mississippi on the Gulf Coast and the
Mississippi Great Pyrenees Rescue is located
in Carriere, Mississippi, about 50 miles from
here. About three years ago, I called them and
volunteered to help rescue and foster these
Cathy and John,
who run the rescue are two of the nicest people
I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. They
care for as many as fifteen or twenty dogs at
a time themselves!
In June of 2006
I became Secretary of the Mississippi Great
Pyrenees Rescue. I am honored to serve as an
officer to a rescue organization that is so
respected in our region.
I Want One!
researched the breed thoroughly and you've decided
you want a Great Pyrenees. Do you have to have
a puppy?? Puppies are wonderful but they have
to be house trained, leash trained and so on...
Would you consider
the older Pyr that needs a home? One that is
past the puppy stage. A full-sized, mature Pyr
that is eager to spend the remainder of it's
life with a loving family. If so, please consider
a rescued Great Pyrenees.
Pyr should be a wanted Pyr, but in the unfortunate
event that this is not true, the Mississippi
Great Pyrenees Rescue offers a rescue service.
Dogs are accepted from local shelters or given
directly to Pyr rescue by persons who, for some
reason, can no longer keep the dog. Rescued
Pyrs are given veterinary care, spayed or neutered
and fostered through donations of time and money
by dedicated volunteers. Suitable homes are
located and the dogs are placed for a fee. The
fee depends on the extent of veterinary care
Do Pyrs End Up In Rescue?
Pyrs started out being adorable white fluffy
fur balls but somewhere along the line made
the mistake of getting too big, barking too
much, shedding too much, or some other ridiculous
human excuse. Some people decide they can no
longer properly care for the animal, some because
of the cost, some because they did not understand
the training requirements of owning a giant
breed dog, and then some who are just cruel
and inhumane. Some Pyrs have to be removed from
homes that have neglected or abused them. People
get divorced, have babies, develop allergies...
the reasons go on and on.
if you feel that you would like to share your
life with a rescued Pyr, devoted and loyal to
you and grateful for a loving home, please contact
The Mississippi Great Pyrenees Rescue. There
are many Pyrs waiting for adoption... make one
of them your next four footed friend and life
