TGPR is dedicated to community education about Great Pyrenees dogs, and the rescue, care, and responsible adoption of Great Pyrenees and Great Pyrenees mixes. We are a STATEWIDE rescue and our dogs are located throughough Texas. Please note each dog's location delineated by ATX, HOU, DFW or SAT. Some of our dogs are located outside of those areas but they are managed by Coordinators within those cities. Potential adopters may visit a dog once they have been approved.
In processing an application, we contact veterinarians to verify that all current pets are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered. Dogs should be current on heartworm testing and taking a monthly heartworm preventative. Please let your vet know that we will be calling as they sometimes require your permission to provide the needed information.
We will also be contacting personal references. Please let them know that we will be calling so they are not taken by surprise.
If you rent your home or apartment, please alert your landlord that we will be calling to make sure large dogs are allowed there.
When all references have been checked, we will then schedule a house check. This is where one of our volunteers will visit your home to meet you in person and to see the environment you will be providing.
Once your application is approved, you are invited to meet any of our available dogs and to speak with any of our fosters about a particular dog.
