We are so grateful for our supporters, who have gone above and beyond opening their hearts and wallets to ensure these animals receive the care, patience, and second chance at life they deserve.

difference in the lives of these rescues
Without you, we would not be able to take in many of these dogs that need our help. Your generous gift will go to provide a second chance at the homes, health and happiness these precious pyrs deserve.
Buddy & Snowflake
Donations needed to transport our Buddy and Snowflake to California!
They will be taking over the job of legendary Odin & his sister Tessa as livestock guardians at Avalon Woods. If you haven't already heard of the tale of the Great Odin who refused to leave his goats during the 2017 California wildfires, you can watch the video below!
Odin's owners, Roland & Ariel Hendel, managed to escape the fires while Odin chose to stay behind, refusing to leave his goats. When they returned, their house was destroyed but there in the distance was Odin and the goats safe in the field! What a miraculous dog, a true hero.
Sadly, Odin passed away recently and it's time for his grieving sister Tessa to retire from her duties. Avalon Woods lost their heroic and beloved guardian they had rescued as a puppy. The Hendels have chosen our Buddy & Snowflake to carry on the legacy of Odin and we are honored to gift the bonded pair of guardians in Odin's memory.
In order to accomplish this monumental task of transporting Buddy & Snowflake 1,800 miles from MO to CA, we really need your help. Donations are needed for travel expenses, gas and lodging for their handler and transporters. We also have dogs that will need to be boarded while Buddy & Snowflake are being transported and transitioned onto the farm.
Will you help us keep Odin’s memory alive?
sponsor a pyr program
Phoenix is a senior who has been in foster care for over 7 months. He would really love a sponsor (or a forever home)!
Can't adopt right now, but still want to help?
Sponsoring a pyr makes it easy to help a pup in need.
On average, it costs $70 per pyr to provide food and preventatives each month. When you sponsor, not only will you be helping them, but you'll also help us save the lives of many other pyrs in need.
Your monthly gift will help fund food, monthly preventatives, & veterinary care for a pyr awaiting their forever home. Your sponsorship can be a one-time only or a recurring monthly gift.
