About Our Rescue Group:

Above and Beyond Great Dane Rescue is a small, non-profit solely volunteer organization working to service the welfare of Great Danes in the Central and Southern Maine region. We work to rescue and provide sanctuary to abandoned, stray, and neglected danes.

Above and Beyond Danes are spayed or neutered if medically stable, and shots are up to date prior to adoption. We work to determine and evaluate behavioral issues of our dogs prior to placement to help us find the best fit possible for the dane and the owners.

Fenced yard is preferred for adoption but each applicant is evaluated based on their circumstances.

Danes are gentle creatures that can require persistence and patience and often times long periods of adjustment are needed.

It is our mission to find loving homes for Great Danes in need and to assist families by providing education, training tips, nutritional information and sharing our knowledge of the breed.

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.
