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.

Saturday, October 10   from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Come visit with us and learn about Great Dane rescue, adoption/fostering, and see some available Great Danes.  Brookdale has U-Pick pumpkin patches as well as farm stand items and other fun fall activities for the whole family!  See the pictures from our visit last year HERE.

Note:  There are 2 farms right next to each other.  Brookdale is the one on the right and there will be a sign out front.  There will be tents set up.  (It's not the one with the barn-looking building.)
