Helping the Rescue

Volunteers are needed and always welcome!

The entire board of the Great Pyrs and Paws Rescue are volunteers that donate their time, skills, and knowledge of rescues and nonprofits to help save the life of our furry friends. Without volunteers, we couldn't do the work that we do. There are many different ways that you can help. Find one (or more) and let us know you want to help.

Volunteer Application


Fosters save lives! We couldn't save the Pyrs that are in Texas and the Pacific NW without the foster families that commit to loving and caring for them. If you would like to join our foster family, please fill out the form - we would love to talk with you!


Meet with families interested in adopting a dog. A visit is scheduled when all household members (including pets) are home, usually on a weekend but sometimes on an evening during the week.


Drive a rescue dog within a 1-3 hour radius of your home. Transportation is usually in close proximity to you, and you can let us know how many miles you might be willing to drive. The entire route is mapped out by the location and time available of the individual volunteers in that area.


Do you have a skill that could help the rescue or service you can donate? Please tell us about it!


Volunteer to evaluate rescue dogs in your area. When an owner is interested in surrendering their dog or a dog is at a shelter, someone needs to evaluate the dog. The evaluation determines whether the dog is a Great Pyrenees or Pyr mix, their temperament and whether this dog is placeable. You can always consult with other rescue volunteers if you need help.
