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!

Featured foster

Roscoe came to us after he was surrendered to a Kansas shelter by his owners. We think Roscoe may be a 7-8 year old Rafiero do Alentjo mix which is a Portuguese livestock guardian breed. Roscoe's foster dad said he loves attention, belly rubs and being petted. Roscoe likes to play and when he’s really excited he spins around. He is very happy to greet you when you get home. He has previously lived with dogs and cats, but we haven't seen him around cats. Roscoe is dog friendly, loves to be outside and loves to go for walks. He is house trained and he needs a little work on leash training as he does pull when you first start walking.


Roscoe has had a rough life and needs someone to pamper him in his senior years!

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. 


Medical need

Gypsy was a stray in Arkansas found wandering. Finders could tell she had had puppies recently but no puppies were found. Gypsy was still lactating and one of her teats was swollen. We asked finders to rush her to the vet and the vet determined she has mastitis, is tick borne positive and also heart worm positive. She is being treated for mastitis and tick borne illness and will start her heart worm treatment soon, we can use all the help we can get.
