There is no charge to attend this event. It is about getting together. A chance for us all to reconnect or meet new People/Great Pyrenees. Utility Drive, Pittsfield, Mass ( Around the corner ...all the way to the end )

See our events page for more information or follow us on Facebook.


You can help Northeast Pyr Rescue and other Great Pyrenees.  We and other Pyr Rescues have partnered with this company and  by ordering coffee they will make donations to Pyrenees rescue.  We did research on this company to make sure they were legitimate.  They do a similar program for Great Dane Rescue. 

If you are a coffee drinker or know one, please check out this site.



ADOPTIONS- Please go to our Adopt & Surrender tab above,  if you are interested in one of our dogs.  It explains the process and has an application you can fill out there.


SURRENDERS - We are accepting Surrenders . All surrender information is CONFIDENTIAL. The dogs MUST be located in the Northeast. We do not import dogs from other areas.  Dogs must be evaluated before being accepted. We do not accept mixes. We area a small group and stick to what we know.


Please email us at NEPYRESQ@GMAIL.COM if you have a dog to surrender. We will send you the paperwork to start the process. 


OUT OF THE AREA DOGS - For Great Pyrenees Rescue Groups in states not mention above  you can go to the Great Pyrenees Club of America web site at https://greatpyrenees.club/gpca-rescue-information-donation/

Our dogs are in foster care.  We do not have a Kennel in Lee, Mass that you can visit.

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.


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
