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.
Great Danes are active, fun-loving dogs that make great companions! Although they are large dogs, their average lifespan is from 8 to 12 years of age. The leading causes of death in Great Danes are heart problems, bloat and cancer. Predominately white Danes are typically deaf and may have eye anomalies including blindness. Potential adopters should be alert to these health problems and the increased costs of medical treatment for dogs the size of Great Danes.
We are looking for permanent, loving homes that will last these rescued Great Danes a lifetime. Adoptive owners should be willing to provide appropriate food, medical care and a loving, healthy environment for their adopted Great Dane. Great Danes should be kept as house pets in close companionship with their families; they should never be allowed to run loose or left outdoors unsupervised. All dogs are spayed or neutered before they leave us.

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.
