80 Dogs- Pyrenees Emergency Rescue

The Great Pyrenees Club of America (GPCA) has organized this gofundme site to raise funds for the rescue of Great Pyrenees dogs from a hording situation in Vernon Florida. The rescue effort is being done by eleven different rescue groups including the GPCA. The dogs belonged to a woman who passed away on June 18, 2017. She had been in poor health for a number of years but repeatedly refused all help. There were a total of 68 dogs and 15 cats running free over 35 acres and in the remains of the house.  

Thirteen of the dogs and ten of the cats, the critical, old, and young were previously removed for urgent care. The remaining 55 dogs and five cats were removed and it was no small feat.  After a week of extensive planning and coordination by Alaqua Rescue, it took a total of 45 all day to get the dogs out of the house and off the property.

Previous information:
Ten puppies have  been taken from the property for vet care, after they were first thought to be dead. They were severely malnourished and lethargic but have since been released to foster care. 
Additional bitches may be pregnant. All the dogs on the property are covered with ticks and fleas and wounds from fighting and need immediate care.  

We need your help!  We need donations to help feed, vet and foster these dogs!   If you can help foster and/or adopt any dogs, please get in touch with the  GPCA at [email redacted].

What we need most is money to support rescue efforts. It is going to take months of work in order to place these dogs in loving homes. The funds needed to care for these dogs is way above the money currently available in the GPCA Rescue Fund. Please open your hearts and wallets to make a donation to GPCA Rescue through our gofundme account or gpcaonline.org.   These donations will only be used for rescue and your donation is tax deductible.
