Great Dane rescue organizations are very concerned about placing their Danes in the proper home and
environment for their Danes in need. Sometimes the Danes they place come from homes that simply have discovered that a
Great Dane just isn't right for them. Sadly to say, they sometimes receive Danes from abusive homes or environments. It is
for these reasons that they pride themselves on taking extra care to be sure that the new home is right for their Danes in
need, that the Dane is right for that home and environment, and that the new home will last a lifetime for the Dane.
The typical Great Dane adoption process will usually consist of the following steps:
- A pre-adoption form is filled out by the prospective adoptive home and reviewed for each prospective Dane they
- References, usually including a reference from a Vet are checked.
- A home visit is made by the rescue to see if the environment will be proper for that Dane and to meet the new
- A visit by you with the Dane to see if the right "chemistry" is there between you and the Dane.
- If the Rescue determines that a perfect match exists, a contract is usually signed. If the contract is broken
by you, the Dane will usually be taken back. So be sure that you're willing to live by the contract before signing
and accepting your new Great Dane. It would be a terrible thing for that Dane in need to go thru the adoption process
