Adoption Application

Applications are reviewed by our board monthly so please allow 4-6 weeks for one of us to contact you regarding your application. Thank you for your interest in GPRW!

Are you a match?

The answers you give on this application will help us find the best possible match between you and the Great Pyrenees  available through Great Pyrenees Rescue of Wisconsin, Inc., (hereafter referred to as GPRW). We will hold your application until we have a Great Pyrenees that we feel will be a good match for you based on your criteria. This process can take up to several months. All of our dogs are listed on; feel free to browse the site to see photos and read about the dogs. Prior to the placement of any dog, a GPRW representative will conduct a home visit and fence check.

A nonrefundable $20 donation will be assessed to help off-set the expense of this home visit, but will be applied toward the final adoption donation should an adoption occur within six months of the home visit. You may be asked to make modifications in your home or with your fencing to more safely accommodate this dog. A follow-up check will be made upon placing the dog if modifications were needed.

If, in checking veterinary references, it is found that you have not kept up-to-date with vaccinations, annual heartworm tests and preventative medication, or that you are not willing to spay or neuter your current pets for reasons other than medical, you may be denied adoption.


Great Pyrenees Rescue of Wisconsin, Inc. is grateful to the people who contribute to our rescue efforts. Thank you.
