About Us

NEPR has Three Primary Goals

Rescue and Re-homing –We provide rescue care for Great Pyrenees dogs that are lost, abandoned, neglected or surrendered and place them in loving permanent homes. In many instances the dogs have lived with attentive and loving families but due to difficult circumstances, such as divorce or owner death, the Pyr needs to find a new home. In some cases dogs have been neglected or abandoned and have special care needs.

Education – We teach people about the Great Pyrenees breed characteristics and convey information regarding proper dog selection and the importance of spaying and neutering. Members set up educational booths at county fairs, public events, Pet-Co, live stock events, and dog shows to disseminate information and answer questions. We distribute about 500 educational fliers and pamphlets each year a s well as speak to approximately 1,000 people.

Consultation and Assistance – We work with owners who are experiencing behavioral problems with their Pyrs, connecting them with experienced breeders and owners who understand and replica watches help resolve their issues of concern. In most instances, with dedicated owners, we can provide easy solutions so the Pyr can remain in their home forever.

There are 70 volunteers, in 7 states, who help assure the promise of NEPR's mission.

We are a NY Registered Rescue # RR 381


We are licensed in Massachusetts #0230

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. Contact us at nepyresq@gmail.com

Thank you,    

Northeast Pyr Rescue Board of Director
