Thanks to the hard work of the Pyrs’ wonderful volunteers, we are thrilled to announce our 2018 calendar contest! All Pyrs — adopted through us or not — are welcome to compete for the honor of being a CGPR calendar Pyr and gracing the cover or one of the twelve months! Pyr people, we need you to submit photos and get out the vote for your favorite Pyrs. Click the link below to enter. Let’s get this rolling in style — we’ll send the first person to enter a CGPR t-shirt!

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.

Ever wonder what it costs to run a rescue? We’re sharing some of our numbers from 2016. Here’s another stat: we cover all expenses through adoption fees, fundraisers, and donations. 100% of the money you give to CGPR goes to the Pyrs, and because we are a 501(c)3, your donations are tax deductible. You can give online through PayPal by clicking the Donate button here on our FB page or at or send checks to CGPR at 4015 Fawnbrooke DR., Indian Trail, NC 28079. Thank you for your support of our Pyrs!
