One of the best and most active rescuers of Great Pyrenees in the country is Leslie Sampson of LoneStar Pyrs & Paws-North. Leslie has a wonderful organization up in New Hampshire and her group takes loads of GPs from the South, fosters them and finds them good homes.
We haven't sponsored many dogs for LoneStar North, because Leslie only asks for help if they really need it.
Well, they are asking for help to save Gretchen and her puppies.
Gretchen made the mistake of getting pregnant (as if it were her fault she was never spayed) and got dumped in a kill shelter with her puppies in New York. I guess her irresponsible owner just couldn't deal with the hassle, so he throws his pet (and her babies) to be killed.
Lucky for Gretchen, Leslie agreed to take them all with our sponsorship.
Please chip in to help save these dogs!
Our donations will go directly to LoneStar Pyrs & Paws - North and be used for vetting and feeding these beautiful dogs.

Update - when GPRS got Bucky, he turned out to be a girl (or should we say a gyrl?)! She has been renamed Lia. The vet thinks that Lia was kicked - very hard, so that's why she can barely walk.
Thanks for donating!
Could you please help save Bucky?
This puppy was found injured in a kill shelter in Central Texas.
When our friends from Great Pyrenees Rescue of Houston agreed to take Bucky, they knew it was going to be an expensive rescue as he can barely walk . Of course, no one will adopt this sweetie until he gets fixed up.
GPRS Houston needs help with this one. We have agreed to sponsor $300 - part of the cost of his medical expenses. Please help if you can!
With our sponsorship, Great Pyrenees Rescue Society of Houston will get Bucky vetted and put him in a loving foster home while they look for a good permanent home for him.
Our sponsorship money will go toward vet bills.
All donations go directly from Paypal to Great Pyrenees Rescue Society of Houston, a 501(c)(3) charity, and are tax-deductible. Please chip in - together we can save this one and many more!
If you are interested in adopting, please contact GPRS at http://www.gprescuesociety.org/

Please give $5 to help save poor Yogi!
Yogi was owner surrendered to a kill shelter in rural Texas. He is five years old, and a purebred chocolate lab. He is heartworm positive, which means that he was not a good candidate for rescue.
Yogi's owner told the shelter director that Yogi had alerted her when a seizure was coming on. He saved her life numerous times. Another time robbers came into the home and Yogi kept them cornered until the police arrived.
His owner could not keep him any longer (we suspect she was going into assisted living) and she left him at the pound, and asked that he find a great home. [Excuse me, but that sounds incredibly lame to us - the dog saves your life so you dump him in a kill shelter? People can be so irresponsible!] Sadly Angleton shelter cannot adopt to the public. So the only options are rescue or euthanasia. She did report that he was good with all other dogs, small children and cats.
At the shelter, the director puts many dogs in each kennel so that she doesn't have to kill them unless she has to, and begs rescues to save them.
Yogi was in a kennel with all the puppies she had, and at night he'd let them all sleep snuggled up against him to keep them warm.
Our friend Em Wolf of Mountain Dog Rescue needs help with this one. We have agreed to sponsor him to enable them to save him and give him the care he needs. Please help if you can!
With our sponsorship, Mountain Dog Rescue will get him vetted, get medicine for his heartworm and put him in a loving foster home while they look for a good permanent home for him.
All donations go directly from Paypal to Mountain Dog Rescue. Please chip in - together we can save this one and many more!
If you are interested in adopting, please contact Em at http://www.mountaindogrescue.org/contact-us.html

Connie Sue Guthrie President
Save Our Strays, Inc.
The Doomed Dogs Rescue Club has supported the blessed mission of Dave and Connie by donating gas money to help pay for their transport trips. We have helped save hundreds of puppies in this way.
Please help us help them to continue to save these precious lives! With over a thousand members of our club, even a small donation by a bunch of us can make a life-or-death difference to these puppies.
Could you please help by chipping in a little? A $5 donation is enough for the gas to transport one puppy to safety.
Your donations literally make the difference as to whether there is enough gas money for these trips to happen or not and whether these dogs live or die- thanks for your support!.
