Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We have foster homes primarily in NC, SC and VA but will adopt to other states on the East Coast providing we can find another rescue to do a home visit for us.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Great Dane Rescue Alliance was formed in 2012 by a group of dedicated volunteers that wanted to focus their efforts on helping Great Danes and other dogs that needed them most. Through their foster home based program, they work to rescue and rehabilitate those that may be otherwise overlooked.

Mission:


"The Corporation is organized for charitable and prevention of


cruelty to animals purposes to:


Help abandoned, neglected, unwanted and/or abused Great Danes and other


dogs with the ultimate goal of placing them in loving, permanent homes;


Promote responsible dog ownership to potential adopters as well as the general


public concerning building a positive relationship with your companion animal and


proper animal husbandry including the benefits of spaying/neutering and proper


nutrition;


Provide guidance and counseling to owners to ensure that the needs of their


companion animal are met in totality; and


Further other actions that promote increasing adoptability of Great Danes and


and other dogs and to increase the humane treatment of dogs"

Our Adoption Process:

The process consists of a phone interview, vet check, reference check and a home visit. All of these must be completed prior to meeting any of our available danes. In order to adopt, you will have to come meet the Dane at their foster home and bring all of your current dogs as well as all family members. Our adoption areas consist varies along the East Coast depending on if we can find another rescue person to do our home visit for us.

Our adoption application can be found on our website. Please complete it and scanned, then email it to us.

Our adoption fees are $350.00 for danes under 1 year and $325.00 for danes over 1 year. In addition, you must complete an obedience class with a positive reinforcement based trainer.

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.
