About Our Rescue Group:

We are Majestic Giants Great Dane Rescue. Most of our members are formerly of Great Creatures Rescue, which is closing down due to the retirement of our director and founder. We chose to carry on in thier footsteps and are here to serve the East Tennessee area by providing them with healthy, loving Danes for adoption and a safe, devoted haven for those who need surrendering.

Come Meet our Pets:

At this time, we have no pre-arranged adoption events scheduled. To meet one of our danes, please contact us by phone or email and we will arrange a one on one meeting for you and your dog of choice.
More info coming soon on events and meetings.

Our Adoption Process:

To adopt one of our Great Danes, you will need to go online to our website at and fill out our adoption application. Someone will then contact you regarding your intrest in one of our dogs, and talk with you so that we get a clear understanding of what kind of dog you are looking for. We check vet refrences and perform a home visit, which we prefer to do with the dane you are considering present. Once approved, our adoption fee is 250.00 and will include your dog being spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, flea and heartworm free, microchipped, and ready for thair new home.

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.
