Dogs are Awesome Master Class

Great Pyrenees Rescue 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 provides Great Pyrenees Rescue services to rescue 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 and/or bring in a vet behaviourist or positive-reinforcement trainer to 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.

How We Prepare Great Pyrenees Rescue Dogs For Adoption

All of our Great Pyrenees rescue dogs have been fully examined and treated for any illness, sores, etc. before they are made available for adoption. They are implanted with identity microchips. In addition, if necessary, each dog is spayed or neutered before placement. All that remains to be done is to find a loving and caring home to share their love, and that is where you, the potential adopting family, can be the final ingredient.

It all begins by completing our

Great Pyrenees Adoption Form.

We give the new owner as much information as possible, but some times it is limited, because of the dog's background. All new owners are interviewed and usually there are numerous contacts between them and the club’s Great Pyrenees Rescue section prior to placement. We do everything that we reasonably can to find the best fit between the dog and the owner.


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

Some of our dogs are adopted out before we ever post them to our website.  These dogs go to people who have previously filed an adoption application with us. If you are interested in adopting a dog, please complete and file an adoption application and we will put you on our waiting list.  The as rescue Pyrs become available, we will assess your needs and the needs of the Pyr to determine if they would make a good match for your family.
