Great Dane Rescue, Inc. is dedicated to the placement of relinquished Great Danes into loving, safe and permanent homes.

We place all Danes brought into our rescue program into foster homes where they are brought up to date on all their medical care, including neutering.

The dogs are kept for at least 10 days, allowing time for temperament testing and general health evaluation.

Upon adoption, a contract is signed stating that the new owners agree that the Dane will be kept indoors as a house-pet and that we will be contacted if the adoption does not work out. The contract also allows for us to inspect the living conditions of the dog at any time and if not satisfactory, take the dog back into Rescue.

In addition to placements and referrals, we also offer information on the Great Dane and provide guidance and counseling on care and training. The representatives serving Great Dane Rescue have been involved with the breed for many years and their combined experience includes breeding and showing, obedience training and of course, rescue work.

We are happy to answer any questions and want potential adopters to know all they can about the Great Dane. Great Danes make wonderful companions; they are very people oriented and need to be part of a loving family.

We feel that dog ownership is a responsibility that is ongoing for the life of the dog and encourage people to do research before they commit themselves to a breed as large as the Great Dane.

Great Dane Rescue is funded by donations, adoption fees and fund-raising. 100% of the fees go directly to our Rescue Fund.
