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.
"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
• 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"
