We know everyone is gearing up for their holiday shopping and all the deals that can be found on-line. By signing up for “iGive” and “AmazonSmile” accounts and installing their buttons onto your web browser, a portion of the proceeds from your purchases will be given to Carolina Great Pyrenees Rescue. It *really* adds up. Shoppers have earned us over $500 so far this year. It only take a few minutes to sign up, sign in, and start shopping!

If you’re not sure what you need to do in order to sign up and install these extensions, we made a video for each that shows you how simple and easy it is.



Peanut needs your support

UPDATE ON PEANUT: Peanut is out of surgery, and the vet tells us that we have every reason to believe it was a success and that he will walk normally for the rest of his life. Thanks to all who contributed to Peanut Pyr’s New Paw Fund. We are 30% of the way there! If you are able to help us cover his $3,000 bill, please donate here:

Peanut, one of our rescue Pyrs, is having surgery today to repair his front right paw and leg. As we left him in the hands of our veterinarian and his staff, we promised Peanut not to worry about the bill and assured him that he has friends he hasn’t met yet. All donations large and small are appreciated. Thanks to those who are able to help us pay Peanut’s bill!

Cheers to 100 Pyrs
