Pyr Rescue
Surrender Application

You have a Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog that you would like to surrender. Please fill out the surrender application below, and we will get back to you once we have reviewed it.

Note that we do not accept dogs with aggression (this includes dogs who have bitten, do not allow invited guests into your home or attempt to attack people on the street) or behavioural issues such as separation anxiety or attacks other dogs. In the case of aggression, we suggest you return the dog to the breeder.

For behavioural issues, engage a positive-reinforcement trainer who will come to your home to assess, and show you how to manage your dog.

Knowingly surrendering an aggressive dog or a dog with behavioural issues into our care is a legal liability and puts our fosters, potential adopters and the public at risk.

Due to the unpredictable nature of Great Pyr mixes or crosses, we can only accept pure breed Great Pyrs into our rescue.



We take in Great Pyrenees since that is the breed we know. Does your dog have two nails on each hind leg? This doesn't always determine if it is a Pyr but it's the closest indication we have. Should we bring your dog in, we will also ask for you to send in some photos of your dog.

First, complete the Surrender Form below. Then a member of our Pyr Rescue team will contact you directly.

Our Surrender Form provides us with the most information regarding your dog. It may take an hour to a few days to be reviewed.


If you need to contact us urgently regarding surrendering your dog or if you know of a dog in immediate need, you may contact our rescue coordinators directly. Your phone call/email will be returned quickly, usually within 24 hours. Please phone only between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. 

Please note... Due to our very limited resources, we are able to provide surrender services only to pure breed Pyrs. We have no capacity to deal with the uncertainties associated with mix breeds so are sorry that we are unable to accept Pyr Mixes into our rescue.
