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 a small start up group with many years of experience with great danes and rescue. Our collective experience with Dane rescue will allow us to continue our desire to make an impact on the lives of the great danes we can take in and help. Currently, we accept surrenders from families and shelters and adopt to forever homes in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Wisconsin. With the help of our supporters, we hope to eventually grow our group, spread our message, and rescue great danes.
FFGDR specializes in great danes. We accept great danes of all ages and from all types of situations. We are not a shelter, our dogs live in foster homes as part of a family until their medical and emotional needs have been met and they are ready for their forever homes.
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.
