WHO ARE WE
We are the largest GREAT DANE RESCUE group
in the state of AZ and have been caring for our beloved danes,
here in the valley, for the past 20 years. We are dedicated to
working throughout the state to provide the proper care &
placement of danes in need whether they are a pound puppy or an
We not only offer refuge to those danes needing a new family, we
also work with families who just need some advice or training
tips for their dane! But.. if you decide rehoming is the only
option, please call us. We have a message line for your
convenience 623 869-0409. We do understand how painful giving up
your best friend can be.
Adopting your dane through the rescuers affiliated with the
Alliance, assures you a dane that has been temperament tested,
altered and vet checked. We require a home check and a meet &
greet with all family members whether they are 2 or 4 legged! We
look forward to working with you.
Valley Fever (VF) has become a serious health concern for pets over the
past 15 years due to the population growth & development in AZ. VF is
NOT contagious. It is a fungal spore in our soil. Our vets have seen an
alarming increase of cases in their practices.
Your dog could be at risk if you show your dog or travel through an area
where VF is prevalent, including California, New Mexico, Texas, Southern
tip of Nevada, and Arizona. The risk arises when you return home and
your local vet is not experienced enough with VF for proper diagnosis.
This can lead to your dog's illness being misdiagnosed, leading to your
Dane getting sicker or even dying before proper treatment is
In most cases, VF is treatable, but it needs a proper diagnosis so the
right medicine can be dispensed. Please take the time to thoroughly
research information about VF. This way if your dog is affected, you
will know what to do and what questions to ask your vet.
The site below is a good starting point to learning more about VF:
PLEASE SPAY & NEUTER YOUR PETS
The following site contains good information on the local spay/neuter
clinics and the financial assistance available through the Maricopa
While each situation is unique, it is generally advised not to
spay/neuter the dogs while they are rapidly growing (at least during
their first 12 months). Also, a female should NEVER be spayed when she
is coming into season, is in season, and for the two months after.
Performing the surgery during this 3-month period (approximately) would
put your dog’s life at risk.
MEET OUR DOGS
Great Dane Rescue is done by volunteers who are dedicated to helping
Great Danes in Arizona find a FOREVER home. We do not have a shelter for
you to visit as everyone works out of their homes. We have several
reputable rescues that are currently working with the Alliance. If you
see a Dane or "non-Dane" on our Available Dogs page and you would like
to meet him or her, please contact us to make arrangements.
