Great Dane Rescue of the Commonwealth

Helping Great Danes Find Their Forever Homes


Rewards of Fostering:  All expenses may be tax deductible, rescue pays for all veterinary costs for the foster Dane, it's a temporary situation AND without foster homes, we cannot help homeless Danes.  Since we do not operate a shelter, we rely solely on individual foster homes and without enough families to foster, we simply cannot continue our rescue mission.  Each time someone agrees to foster, another Dane is saved and given a second chance at having a wonderful life.
