Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We are concerned for Great Danes that have been abandoned, abused or in anyway mistreated. We take in abandoned, abused and owner surrendered Great Danes and find them new loving homes. We are here to assist individuals or families who are looking to give a Great Dane a warm and loving home. We are here to help current Danes owners or people who want to learn about Great Danes. Needless to say, we love Great Danes and want to see each and every one of them happy, healthy and well cared for.
The references you put on your application will be contacted, including the Vet references. We ask that personal references not be family members. Neighbors and friends make good references.
The adoption process will require a home check is done. One of our representatives will contact you to set up a convenient time to meet at your home. This is done to ensure the fence is in good condition. Point out any items that may have to be Dane Proofed and to point out any areas that may be dangerous or harmful to a Great Dane.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
