Sometimes, the greatest gift you can give to a homeless pet is time, love, and a temporary place to call home.

Great Pyrenees Rescue of Missouri is a state-licensed, 501(c)(3), foster-based rescue dedicated to saving all Great Pyrenees who are without a home, need medical attention or need a safe-haven as they await their forever home. All of the Great Pyrenees in our care live in foster homes until a forever home can be found. We rescue without regard to health, age, or ease of placement.

We are committed to placing 100% of adoptable pyrs into new homes, and providing these dogs who enter our care with the resources they need to be happy, healthy, and ultimately, find new homes.

It is only through the generosity of donations that we are able to help lost, abandoned and abused dogs in Missouri and surrounding states. A special thanks to those who support Great Pyrenees Rescue of Missouri!

My name is Leo. Don’t you just love my beautiful golden mane and my amber eyes?? My rescue friends think I am a 3 year old Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix. I really love people and attention! I’m a pretty chill guy and like being petted, but I’m not in your face about it. I’m house trained, like to go for walks, and I like to play in the water. I like treats and will sit for them. Other dogs are my friends and I would prefer a female in my new home. I do not mind cats. I do require a 6 ft fence so I don’t go on walkabouts. I really need my next home to be my Furever home. I’ve been in rescue for 3 months and I’m ready to make a family really happy!

urgent medical need

Diego is a 1.5 year old pyr mix who has been with us since October. He was hit by a car as a puppy and didn't receive proper medical attention. Diego has been on pain meds to ease his pain and is scheduled to see a specialist in hopes of saving his leg. More than likely he will need an amputation, which will cost over $2000. Diego can use all the help he can get, let's get this pup healthy and happy together.
