We’re Still In Business!

Just wanted to post this message to let everyone know we are still up and running! It has been very slow these last few months, but we are still looking forward to taking in Danes in need should they arise. We hope you wonderful Great Dane people are well out there and we send our love to you and your beloved Danes!

Magical Birthday Picnic

Magical Birthday Picnic

OK, so this photo has nothing to do with Great Dane Rescue, but I loved it so much I had to share! This is my son’s girlfriend Lisa’s birthday picnic, complete with pony who just happened to walk by with it’s owner. Honestly! (I guess I need better friends….)

Great Dane Wheelchair Available

A wheelchair fit for a Great Dane is available to a deserving Dane. The chair is located in Sacramento.  If interested, please contact:  Emily at 714-642-5324

We ARE open for business!

Just in case you all were wondering, Great Dane Rescue never really closed. We just were limited on who we could bring in due to the kennel where we board being closed, so we had to rely on foster care only (thanks Karen!)

But now we are up and running full strength and just waiting for all those un-wanted Great Danes to come pouring in! Things seem to be slow in the “I want to give up my sweet Dane” realm, but really busy in the “my unsocialized ten year old arthritic blind Dane just bit three people and can you take him” arena.

So keep checking our website to see who comes in and for all those on our waitlist, we are looking out for a Dane for you!

Tina is TEN!

Happy 10th Birthday to Tina!

Tina is a local Dane that is one of Carol’s pack that helps in socializing and playing with the foster Danes that come to Reno. Happy Birthday sweet girl.

Sabrina’s fabulous family

Sabrina’s fabulous family

We received this wonderful note from Sabrina’s new family. All our thanks to Abe and Pritham (and Piper and Zack 🙂 for providing Sabrina such a fantastic new home!

Happy New Year!

Just wanted to let you know how well Sabrina is doing and send along a few photos. She gets along great with the other dogs; she loves patrolling and barking at things in the street with Piper the Cocker Spaniel and snuggling up with Zach the Husky. Her separation anxiety has also pretty much gone away, which I think is the result of her close bond with the other two. She’s the sweetest girl and we’re so thrilled she joined our family. We love her so much!

Thanks again for everything you do to rescue Great Danes!

Christmas Photos Needed!!

Christmas Photos Needed!!

We know you Dane owners are out there like proud parents taking photos of your Danes with Santa, with Santa hats, in front of the tree, etc. So please send them in and we will share them with our large Dane rescue community on our website. You can send your photos to cleahy1955@yahoo.com and please remember to list your Dane’s name! Merry Christmas to all and thank you for supporting our little rescue group. (I am starting us off by posting a photo sent to me by a friend, and also posting a throwback photo from Christmas of 2014, of Julie Meyer’s beloved Maggie (who owned the title of “Best Dog In The World”) who passed this year. This one’s for you Julie.)

I just wanted to update you on how things are going with Charli. We are absolutely in love with her and she is doing amazingly well with our family. I can’t believe how much she watches over our newborn son! We are so lucky to have Charli as a part of our family. If her previous owners reach out, please tell them she is doing great and is loved so much!
