SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

We are please to announce that as of Friday, May 14, 2021, Northeast Pyr Rescue was able to acquire 8+ acres of vacant land in New Lebanon, New York. It is just over the border from Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

 It will be the future home site for a private kennel for our dogs. Nothing big, just a 5 run kennel where we can bring dogs into so we evaluate them and vet them before placing them in a foster home or a potential forever home. Some dogs are not good with other dogs, or cats and this can limit the potential to take those dogs as we are primarily a foster home based organization covering the Northeast. Most of our fosters have their own dogs.

Next weekend we will be starting an On-line Auction to raise funds to build the kennel. The link will be shared on this page and emailed to everyone on our mailing list.If you are not on the list and want the link please email us at nepyresq@gmail.com and we will send it to you.

If you would like to make a donation directly to our organization you can mail a check to Northeast Pyr Rescue at P O Box 704, Lee, MA 01238. Note on the check it is for the Shelter Fund.You can also make donations via the website at http://www.nepyresq.org/page/donations-26.htmlUse the General Fund donation button.
We are 100% volunteer and it all goes to help the dogs. All donations are tax deductible as we are a not-for-profit organization. [501 (c) (3) ] This has been a DREAM for us for a long time.

We will need donations of time to help clear brush, put up Kennel fencing, draft a building plan, etc. All are welcome. Architects, engineers, builders and any one with a skill to offer is appreciated. Any offer of help will be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,    Northeast Pyr Rescue Board of Directors
