About Pyrenees Rescue of Western NC

About Our Rescue Group...

The very characteristics that make this wonderful breed so desirable to many, can make them vulnerable to neglect or eventual surrender in the homes of those who are unprepared for the responsibilities with raising a dog with specific needs to accommodate their size, need for space, secure boundaries, and maintenance of the beautiful heavy coat. Sometimes, the family circumstances change, relocations happen, and a new home must be found. Often, the story is more tragic. Backyard breeders abound, and puppy mill rescues are brought here to find forever homes. Because the ultimate goal is to find families for the rescues, they are handled, loved, and groomed daily, socialized with the rescue volunteers and each other, so that they will be well-tempered. Occasionally, due to behavior problems related to previous abuse or fear, or advanced age or special health needs, a dog will be considered unadoptable. Those dogs are guaranteed a home here at the rescue.

The rescue founder provides room, board, and love for the dogs that are accepted into the rescue, but we DESPERATELY need your help to continue providing a safe home and medical care for current and future rescues. Spaying, neutering, and vaccinations are a significant expense, but absolutely necessary. Please consider making a donation now to help us ensure that each dog is happy and healthy, so that they can be placed in loving forever homes.
