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.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO ADOPT A GREAT DANE?
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.
GDROC currently has no dogs available for adoption. That's actually a good thing!
Briefly, Layla is a female Great Dane who was picked up by Animal Control after receiving a call of a dog hit by a car. The AC office gave her initial emergency treatment and since she was not claimed during stray hold, she was transferred to rescue today, November 6.
Layla had wound closure surgery today and has at least 1 more surgery to undergo on her mouth. She will need other care and rehabilitation as well.
Please read Layla's full story on her page and make a donation if you can. No amount is too small.
