Our Mission

Great Dane rescue is our passion! We rescue Great Danes and other dogs, prepare them for adoption in foster homes, and make sure they are all the veterinary care they need.

We need Foster Parents. Approval to foster is similar to adopting. Fosters parents are responsible for cost of food, keeping them safe, clean and helping them learn to be good pets. All medical expenses until adopted are covered by the rescue, though we may ask you to take them to the vet for care. We schedule adoption fairs and fund raising events often. We will ask you to bring your foster dog(s) to these events for exposure and socialization.

Adoption Policy

Please contact us for an application. Our process requires an application, phone interview, vet reference checks and home visit. Its all part of ensuring a good match for you and the Dane. 


You must also have a fenced yard and that all dogs live inside your home. Exception on the fencing requirement on a case by case basis. We also require that other pets in the home be current on vaccinations, and they must be spayed/neutered.

GDFRL Reserves All Rights in Adoption Approval Decisions.


We dont have a facility. Every dog in our program is placed in a foster home for evaluation, baisc training, socialization, and lots of love. We make every effort to match the dog with the best fur-ever home!


You can find us at events around NC frequently! Check our event schedule for details of where we’ll be next!
