Great Dane Rescue of the Commonwealth

Helping Great Danes Find Their Forever Homes

Interested in fostering a Great Dane? 

GDROC always needs foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can help.  You provide a temporary home while the Dane awaits placement.  For more information on fostering, please see our guidelines and application.



Please take a look at our adoption information.  You will find our adoption requirements, an online application and a list of the available dogs. 

We also occasionally list dogs from other rescues:  See our Courtesy Listings page.


JUNE 2017

GDROC currently has no dogs available for adoption.  That's actually a good thing!


However, we have courtesy listed this Dane who needs a home. 

Abbey - Courtesy Listing   (not a GDROC dog)

Abbey will be 3 years old in June 2017.  This girl is housebroken, crate trained and well behaved in the home.  She is also spayed, tacked, microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm meds.   No cats, not sure about other dogs.  Has not been around children. 


Please contact Kathy at 757 575-3010 for further information about Abbey. 






Yard Sale - Date TBD (fall of 2017)

We are planning a yard sale soon.  Date and location to be announced.  If you are local to the Virginia Beach, VA area and would like to donate items to rescue for us to sell, start saving now.  We can make arrangements for pickup or drop off closer to the sale.
