Our Mission



NW FL Great Dane Rescue, Inc (NWFLGDR,Inc) is group of volunteers who devote their time and money to rescue Danes from shelters, ASPCAs, and owners who must surrender their Dane due to hardship.  We do not have a "shelter".  We foster the Danes in our homes and evaluate and temperament test them until we can place them into a permanent home.  We are a 501(c)3 organization based out of Pensacola serving a large coverage area from Jacksonville, FL across the I-10 corridor west, thru southern GA, along the FL, AL, MS Gulf Coast into New Orleans, LA.  All Danes are brought current on vaccines, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and heartworm tested prior to adoption.  Our email had changed.  The new email is  

Adoption Policy

Or you can pay via PayPal by sending to We ask for this fee to assure us that you are seriously considering adopting a Dane. That fee is used towards dog food costs, leashes, collars, etc. 

Once we receive your application, we verify that you own your property. If you are renting/leasing, your landlord must approve of you adopting a giant breed dog. 

We will check your vet references to verify that all pets in your home have been current on vaccinations, altered, and kept on heartworm prevention. 

Lastly, we will schedule a home visit to assure that your home is a safe, loving and Dane-friendly environment and that all members of the household are on board with adopting a great dane.
