Great Pyrenees Rescue is a small rescue that greatly appreciates your support. You can be assured that every penny goes to support our rescued Great Pyrs.


If you are looking to adopt a dog because you are not working right now, you will be working, again. Is there a reason you didn't want a dog when you were working? Please think about this. Dogs are a long-term commitment.

The Great Pyrenees Club of Southern Ontario has a small Great Pyrenees Rescue service providing help to surrendered, abandoned or abused dogs and relocate them to loving and caring homes.  

We have provided formal Rescue services for over 20 years and our involvement in rescuing Great Pyrs goes back even further. Why not take a minute and review our History?

You are probably wondering why Great Pyrs become rescues.  Even though our club and many others, dedicate themselves to informing everyone about all aspects of this breed, some Pyrs still become rescues. You can learn more here.

Interested in Fostering? Great Pyrs really need your help!

As you know, these are tough times and many people have to make heartbreaking decisions and serious changes in their lives. Quite often this involves pets that can no longer be supported. This is especially true with big dogs.

Our Rescue Team is dedicated to helping as many Great Pyrs in need as we can support, however we have limited resources and limited space to house dogs waiting for permanent homes.

We need your help. Yes… simple as that… we need your help. If you believe you can help our Pyrs and are committed to working with them with our help, please drop by our Foster Area to learn more.



Do you want to adopt a Great Pyr now or in the future?

We can help you get started now. Simply visit our Adoption area and we will step you through the process. This way to our Adoption Area.



You cannot manage your Pyr any longer?

If you need to surrender your Pyr, please take note of the following: 

We avoid bringing in mixes. We have experience with the Pyr but once a mix is involved, this brings an instability to the breed.

Note that we do not accept dogs with aggression to animals or people nor behavioural issues. We advise that you return the dog to the breeder or have a certified animal behaviourist assess your dog. Do not rehome your dog. If you can't manage your dog, no one else will want to. It ultimately may result in your dog being abused.

Here is where you will find our Surrender Area.


You have seen a Great Pyr in need of help and don't know what to do?

Why Adopt a Great Pyr?

One benefit of adopting an adult Great Pyr is adopting owners do not have to go through the "puppy" stages. Great Pyr puppies are beautiful but they can be a handful and are challenging at times.

Quite often adult Pyrs have had at least basic training. So for those who do not want to have to manage through the puppy stage or do not have the time to spend on extensive training but still want a dog, Great Pyrs make great rescue dogs. For many folks, an older dog fits their life style very well. It is just a question of obtaining the right fit and the club’s Great Pyrenees Rescue section works very hard to make that happen.

You can adopt one of our beautiful rescue dogs. To start the process, why not fill out our Great Pyrenees Adoption Form today?


Great Pyrenees Available For Adoption

We are not posting available dogs for adoption. That is because we think it's better for the dogs not to move around too much nor get attached to their fosters in long-term foster. It's hard on both parties. So, we take applications and pre-screen families.

Once we get a dog in, depending on the dog, s/he may go into short-term foster where they can be assessed in temporary foster or assessed right at their own home.

From there, if the dog needs a little work for behaviour issues, our trainer will work with the dog to determine the kind of work the dog needs. We will then match a dog to an adopter and our trainer will follow adopter and dog until they no longer need our help. If the dog seems to be adoptable, s/he will go directly to a suitable adopter.
