From time to time, the Great Dane
Club of Canada receives into its care, danes needing
loving homes. The reasons are diverse- from irresponsible
breeders or puppy mills to situations such as divorce,
death or other family crisis'. All danes received
into our care are given veterinary care as required;
some may only require a check up to confirm good health
while others may need more attention. As well, all
danes recieved into our care are either spayed or
neutered. Finally, their temperaments are carefully
assessed to ensure placements into appropriate environments.
Any dane owner knows the sensitivity these wonderful
dogs possess. They are very people oriented and must
be part of the family. Danes who are surrendered to
rescue are usually frightened and bewildered but most
have the potential to become wonderful, cherished
family pets very deserving of someone to love them.
Typically the cost of adopting a rescue dane is quite
modest. While we must recoup any veterinary expenses
and food costs to enable us to help the next rescue
it is not our goal to make money. We work to place
these danes with the ultimate goal of finding them
a permanent loving home.
Currently we have no Great Danes in rescue however
if you are interested in either adopting a dane or
opening your home to foster a dane in need until a
permanent home can be found, please contact one of
our dedicated rescue people.
