Over 110 humans and 50 Pyrs pawticipated (ha!) in today’s homecoming Pyr-nic. We raised over $2,000 for rescue AND had a great time. We have a fully gallery of photos from the event on our facebook page.

February has started with a lot of amazing dogs coming in to CGPR and great families applying for adoption.  The first step in adopting is completing our on line application.

We had NINE adoptions in January!

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 www.cgpr.org/donate or send checks to CGPR at 4015 Fawnbrooke DR., Indian Trail, NC 28079. Thank you for your support of our Pyrs!

In 2016, CGPR rehomed 113 Pyrs. Thank you to our supporters! As we celebrate 25 years of saving Pyrs in the Carolinas, we look forward to sharing so many more happy milestones!

Welcome to our updated webpage! We’ve been busy over the holiday break updating the look and functionality in time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Carolina Great Pyrenees Rescue! Founded by Martha Rehmeyer and her beloved Pyr Charlie in 1992, CGPR continues to celebrate all that she achieved as president, and the work of CGPR’s current officers and volunteers builds on the solid foundation Martha laid. Led by president Shannon Meehan, we remain committed to rehabilitating and rehoming abused and abandoned Pyrs in the Carolinas.

Last year, we relocated to Indian Trail, NC and transitioned the rescue to new leadership while placing 113 Pyrs. This is going to be another great year for us. Please join us in celebrating CGPR’s first 25 years and bright future by marching in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Charlotte and attending the Pyr-nic this spring.
