GPRCI is always looking for volunteers. The majority of the Great Pyrenees in our program are housed in Bloomington, Illinois, and this is where any volunteering would take place (other than fostering, in which case please refer to the “Foster” page to learn more).

What volunteering consists of at GPRCI depends on what you are comfortable with or interested in doing. We are happy to accept volunteers that just want to come visit and socialize with the Great Pyrenees. It is very important that the dogs get plenty of attention, and we usually have a few dogs in our program that could benefit greatly from extra socialization. Volunteers are also welcome to brush and groom the dogs because, as Pyr owners know, there is never a shortage of hair.

Some other volunteer opportunities include helping keep the kennels tidy and organized, helping transport dogs, teaching basic commands to the rescue dogs, or even some administrative work.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Cindy Barch at (309) 827-6143 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to find out more about what opportunities are available.
