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.
This beautiful adult male dog was part of a neglect/abuse pick up by SPIN and was immediately vaccinated and treated for fleas and ticks by a volunteer before going to a foster home, but huge cockle burrs embedded around his neck, shoulders and tummy made a collar or halter impossible. Other Spin volunteers spent time at his new foster home, clipping out the stickers and other areas of fur that was very dirty. He was frightened but gentle and let us know that he respects humans.
He is more beautiful now that he has been bathed and given a suitable collar and soon he will be neutered, checked for heartworms and given his rabies vaccination. He will gain much needed weight and be ready for your inspection very soon.
If you want to REALLY help, consider fostering instead of (or in addition to) adopting! You can foster to adopt a young puppy! If you have a great fenced backyard that is all empty (sad face), consider filling it all up with white fur attached to big happy dogs (happy face!) that need your help – desperately!! Write to us, look on our Facebook page, fill out an adoption application and specify that you want to foster and fill up that empty yard!! We are here to help you help us.
