Rescue Contacts

We've done some changes to the Rescue Contact Information page. Please review the information in the "Rescue Contact Codes" listed below PRIOR to contacting someone about Rescue Information. We've added this information in hopes that we can be better equipped to serve you with the information that you need on who to contact with regards to rescue.

Please take the time to review our Rescue Contact Codes. This will enable you to get in touch with the GPCA Rescue Representative who will be best able to assist you.

Rescue Contact Codes

C – Take calls to gather information or direct to the correct contact person
FO – Foster only owner turn-ins
FSO – Foster from shelters and owner turn-ins
T – Pickup and transport
C, FSO, T - All of the above

If you're interested in adopting a rescue or placement Great Pyrenees, please contact the person listed below who is geographically closest to where you live and who will best assist you with your rescue needs. The individual state contacts are listed below the regional coordinators. If you find that you do NOT have a GPCA Rescue Contact listed for your region or state, please send an email to one of the following people for more information:

The GPCA fully supports rescue programs across the United States in support of abused and unwanted Great Pyrenees. The many GPCA Regional Clubs and individuals that have built rescue programs in their area take in these dogs and bring them current on all their vaccines, micro chipped, spayed/neutered, de-wormed, tested for heartworm, restored to full health, and evaluated as suitable for adoption before being placed in a new pre-qualified home.

The below list of contacts are GPCA Regional Clubs and GPCA Members who work in Great Pyrenees Rescue in their area. While other organizations may have names similar to the GPCA, these individuals/groups are the only ones sponsored by the GPCA. Please contact your available resource for assistance with a Pyrenees that needs rescue or if you are looking to adopt a Pyr.
