We exist to rescue Great Pyrenees from animal control facilities in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex as space in our foster homes is available. We consist of all volunteers, who generously give of their time, talents, and homes (for fostering) to this cause. Our dedicated volunteers evaluate dogs in shelters, transport them to various veterinary clinics for care, provide loving foster homes as long as needed, process adoption applications, visit potential adopters, take our dogs to public events to gain more exposure, use a wide variety of media to spread the word about our dogs available for adoption, and work to educate the public about the Great Pyrenees breed and about the need to spay/neuter to help reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats that end up in shelters every year.
Often I have mentioned to someone that I have fostered many dogs for SPIN and heard them reply, “How I wish I could do something like that, but I am not sure I can.” Many people are searching for ways to give back to the community and others are not sure about a lifelong commitment to this very large but beautiful breed. Fostering lets you try both. We cannot rescue all the ones in danger now without more foster homes. We make the job as easy as possible for you; the hardest part may be the most rewarding – watching the beautiful dog you tried not to love TOO much go to his forever home where he will be loved unconditionally. The dog will be happy, the family will be happy, and hopefully you will also be happy because now you have room to save one more. SPIN supplies money and assistance for vet care and supplies, opportunities to show your dog, and a chance to review applications from approved families. You supply love and care in a well-fenced yard, and a little time to spend with a frightened and often poorly nourished dog that will become comfortable and beautiful in your home. PLEASE go to our fostering page to learn more – it will tell you all you need to know, or if not, we would be delighted to furnish further details.
