We will meet at 10 am at First Ward Park, which is at the corner of Brevard and 7th Streets. More details to come. 

We ask that all participants buy one of our 2018 CGPR St Patrick’s Day T-shirts. We’ll post the link to order shirts, soon. (Those not marching are also welcome to buy a shirt.) We will provide decorations (bow ties, tutus, hats, and beads) for the Pyrs, but folks are welcome to bring their own, too.  CLICK HERE TO ORDER

Each participant and Pyr should be able to walk 2.5 miles. The parade will step off at 11:00 am at N. Tryon and 9th Streets in uptown Charlotte. We then march south to 3rd Street where we take a left and march to Caldwell.http://www.charlottestpatsday.com/

After the parade, we will head to Birdsong Brewery for a cold one and lunch. They will have a food truck. All, especially those who can’t march with us, are invited to meet us there about 1ish. https://birdsongbrewing.com/

As with all CGPR events, your Pyr does not have to be a CGPR alumni to join us. You do not have to have a Pyr to join us either because we will need help with the water wagon and banners and walkers for the Pyrs currently in rescue.


All Pyrs and their people are invited to a Halloween pawty! The rescue Pyrs will be wearing costumes, and if you and your Pyr feel like dressing for the occasion, please do! Or, if you don’t, just come for a beer and the fellowship. All are welcome — including those who are owned by Pyrs not adopted through CGPR and those who have other dogs. If you do plan on coming, please RSVP by clicking GOING above — the brewery would like a tentative head count so that they can prepare for us. Thanks!



Our only September adoption was when the Bells adopted Peacock & Poppycock. We knew they would be spoiled rotten as the Bell family kept coming to spend time with them each week before they were ready to go to their forever home. The girls were so excited!

For over twenty-five years, CGPR has been rehabilitating and rehoming abused and abandoned Pyrs in North and South Carolina. We’ve been using the same kennels for over a dozen of those years, and to keep our Pyrs safe and comfortable while in rescue, we need updated, modern kennels. Our fundraising goal for this fall is to give our Pyrs the HGTV experience — a remodeled room of new kennels! How can you help? Buy your spring flowers and bulbs through our Flower Power page! All proceeds — 50% of the purchase price — will go towards the Pyrs’ new kennels and flooring.
