Great Pyrenees Rescue
for Eastern Pennsylvania

I've been trying to make the website more "flashy" to grab people's attention and to bring it into a 21st century format. But the truth is I actually write the code and I'm not that advanced at writing code. We do not have a program to use to do this as they are expensive and we spend our limited funds on the dogs in need. So, until I can find the time to learn how to do this, we will stick with the current format.

East Penn Pyr Rescue, Inc. is always in need of funds. We need to raise money for the dogs that are now in Rescue and those who will come in to Rescue in the future. Please consider a monetary donation to help the Great Pyrenees in our care. Every little bit helps to feed them and provide for their veterinary expenses. We are taking in fewer dogs due to this terrible economy and lack of donations. Only the most urgent dogs are taken in right now until things improve. We will of course try to help those dogs in need get to a qualified Rescue that can take them in and care for them. We have several ways for you to help the dogs here in Rescue.

You may donate through PayPal here

In March of 2006 Rescue became a separate entity and a non-profit corporation was formed. East Penn Pyr Rescue, Inc. was born. EPPR, Inc. will support the dogs placed through PDGPC Rescue. These pages will be updated as time allows.5/2/11
