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!

foster or foster to adopt NEEDED

Clyde is a Great Pyrenees/Mastiff and maybe some Hound dog. We can definitely hear the Hound when he howls! Clyde and his sister Ruger came in to rescue when their owner had to give them up due to a family illness. Clyde and Ruger were both adopted as young puppies. Clyde was returned to us recently as his adopters were not equipped to handle a dog of his size or willing to continue his training.

Clyde is a BIG boy at 10 months old and over 100 lbs. He is still very much a puppy!  Clyde is sweet and smart and needs his people to help continue his training. Clyde is dog and cat friendly and loves children. He is house trained, crate trained, and good on a leash. And he loves playing outside. Children in the home must be 8 years or older due to his size.

sponsor a pyr

Can't adopt right now, but still want to help? Sponsoring a pyr makes it easy to help a pup in need. Phoenix is a senior who has been in foster care for over 7 months. He would really love a sponsor (or a forever home)!

By sponsoring a dog, you will not only change their life, but you'll also help us save the lives of many other pyrs in need. Your monthly gift will help fund food, monthly preventatives, and veterinary care for a pyr awaiting their forever home. 


sponsor sky & dewey

Sky and Dewey would like nothing more than their forever home for Christmas, but this bonded pair would be happy with a sponsorship while they patiently wait! 

Your donation sponsors the cost of dog food and preventatives for a month ($70 per dog)! Your sponsorship can be a one-time only or a recurring monthly gift, partial or full sponsorship. Everything helps!
