Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue
Where do the great danes in our program come from?
The great danes in our program are either surrendered by their owners or are pulled from shelters. FFGDR does not buy or pay rehoming fees for dogs or "capture" stray dogs.
Why are great danes surrendered?
Great danes come into rescue for various reasons. Some of the most common reasons include:
Where does the great dane go after it is surrendered?
- The owner is no longer able to care for the dog medically, financially, emotionally, or physically
- The great dane no longer fits into the owner's life style (baby, moving, etc.)
- The shelter cannot accommodate or care for the great dane
- The shelter determines the great dane should be in a rescue that has giant breed experience, knowledge, and resources
FFGDR does not have a facility or shelter. Surrendered great danes are placed into foster homes. Once in foster care, the great dane is temperament tested and vetted (vaccinations, heart worm and parasite tested, spayed/neutered, and microchipped, at the very least). Caring for the great danes in foster homes exposes them to children, cats, dogs, men, women, etc. and helps us better determine exactly what type of home is best suited for the dog.
