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!

If you're looking for a Gentle Giant who loves people, Tank is your guy! Tank has been with us since February and he is more than ready for his Furever home!

Tank is a 1 1/2 year old social guy. He immediately goes to people for pets and snuggles. Tank also loves belly rubs and ear scratches. When he wants attention he'll plop his head in your lap. Tank is very gentle with children. When he approaches them, he gets close to them with his nose! Tank is dog friendly but can be male selective. He has not been around cats. Tank is a very smart boy, but sometimes can have selective hearing! He has learned sit, stay, lay down, and give a paw. We're working on give a paw "gently" with those giant paws! Are you ready to adopt your new best friend?

Samuel was dumped and abandoned. He is such a sweetheart, it breaks our hearts! Sadly, he tested positive for heartworms and tick borne illness. He is going to need heartworm treatment scheduled for the end of this month. It's a painful process for the dogs and costly, between $800-$1000 per treatment. With your help, we can give Samuel a second chance at the life he deserves.


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.
