The 2nd Sunday of each month (Unless it is a holiday), we have a volunteer call out, for folks interested in interreacting with the Great Pyrenees in our program. We have a short training session, which when once completed, allows you to volunteer with the dogs during the kennel open hours. Join other volunteers to walk, brush, talk or read to the dogs in the rescue program. Children must be between over age 10 to participate, and if younger than 15, must be accompanied by a participating adult.

The volunteer hours are 1- 3pm for these events and are held at Bed & Biscuit Kennels, 3809 State Road 32 W. Westfield, IN 46074. We also welcome high school or community groups who want to help the dogs too.

We hope to see you soon!

Email any questions to info@igpr.org

We also need volunteers willing to transport dogs to us once accepted into our program, and to vet appointments. Groomers who want to volunteer a groom or bath, fundraisers, and we are open to any other ideas you may have about the program. Drop us a note at info@igpr.org to help!

Help Us Spread the Word! Volunteers, Fosters and Adopters Needed!

It is raining Pyrs!!! We are receiving calls daily asking us to pull from shelters and from owners needing to surrender their dogs! Please help us spread the word! Share our website, share our FaceBook page, let everyone know how amazing Pyrs are!

Volunteers needed! With so many dogs being kenneled, we are looking for volunteers to come in and help socialize, groom and snuggle our Pyrs waiting for their forever homes!



Announcing “Virtual” Adopting!!

No room for another dog? Looking for the Pyrfect gift for a pyrlover who can’t add another dog right now? Travel too much to have a dog?

“Virtual” Adoption is a way to have your own Great Pyrenees without the daily care taking. Currently we have 23 Great Pyrenees and Great Pyrenees mixes at our boarding kennel waiting for homes. The monthly boarding expenses for each dog is $5 per day which includes having kennel staff clean their kennels, let them outside, interact with them and feed them twice per day. (Chewy donates food for the dogs) This cost does not include monthly heartworm and flea and tick preventatives, grooming, vaccines, and medical care. The average cost per month to house a dog before being adopted or fostered averages about $200 – $250 per month. $200 x 12 months = $2400 per dog, whether that kennel space is occupied by the same dog or another. The adoption fee is currently $300 per dog.

“Virtual” Adoption will allow you to provide funding for a dog in need, and we will send you monthly updates on how your adopted dog is doing; you will have visitation rights, if you are in the area (Indianapolis, IN) and you will receive an adoption certificate. We are asking for $25 per month for a 12 month period for a “virtual” dog adoption.

To “Virtually” Adopt a pyr in need, visit our website, www.igpr.org, to select your dog to sponsor, send us an e-mail at info@igpr.org with the name of the dog in the subject line and add virtual adoption after their name. If this is a gift, let us know who to make the adoption certificate to.

You can make your “adoption” payments via www.paypal.org, our e-mail is info@igpr.org.

The sponsored dogs are available for adoption, and we will ask you who you would like to “adopt” next if your pyr gets a forever home.

Looking forward to hearing from you and getting all the dogs in need either actually or virtually adopted soon!
