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

My name is Simon and I am an 11 month old Great Pyrenees mix. My owners moved and couldn't take me with them.  I’m an energetic guy and would like an active owner. My foster dad says I’m great on a leash. I love being in the fields with him running with my nose to the ground. When I’m on a long lead I keep my eye on my foster dad and come back to check in. When meeting new people I’m a little nervous at first but I warm up quickly. Then I’ll take all the loves and pets I can get. I act tough when I meet new dogs, but once I figure out they are friendly, I am friendly too. I would enjoy playing with another dog in my home after a slow introduction and I am just fine with cats. Will you be my forever home?

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!
