Great Pyrenees

Can I just say that I am so thankful to the Atlanta Community for coming together and helping a boy like me.  My name is Pence and I am a 3 year old male Great Pyrenees.  I found my way to GPRA with the help of amazing volunteers with different rescue groups who cared about me and wanted to give me a chance at life.  I had an amazing transport team who allowed me to ride in their car in the condition I was in.  I even helped Guy, with directions as I seem to know these roads since I have been on my own for some time.  A little about me and my current condition.  As I was greeted by the Veterinarian in the parking lot, she knew right away I was very ill and at “death’s door”.  I was running a high fever and was rushed to Urgent Care where I needed to be monitored for 24 hours and given fluids.  In the short time I was examined, it was determined that I needed to have both of my ear canals removed and undergo heart worm treatment.  Test results are still coming back and  I am sure that I will have other treatments but I am just so thankful for this group and the others that think I am worth saving.  The love and compassion that I have been shown is something that I have never experienced before.  I have a long road ahead of me but am confident that with the care of this group I will have a long and great quality of life once I  get repaired.  They told me it will cost about $10,000 to get me through this, I’m not sure what that means but it sounds like a lot of something.  Any help you can give would be much appreciated.  If you can contribute please click here Project Pence.  I am a very loving boy who just wants to be loved by someone who understand that I have not had the best past and wants to provide me with only the best moving forward.  If you can provide this for me and are interested in fostering or adopting me, contact GPRA today at

Our main mission at GPRA is to find the right permanent home for Great Pyrenees in distress, whether they are strays or from an overpopulated kill or no-kill shelter. We don’t care how old they are or what their medical condition is because we will make sure they receive a comprehensive medical evaluation, spaying or neutering, and even behavioral training if necessary.
