Adopting A Friend

When you adopt a Great Dane, you get an appreciative best friend for the duration of your Dane's life. As a breed in general they are loyal, intelligent and very loving.

Great Dane care is not overwhelming, yet every aspect of your dog's life depends on you. Making a decision to own a dog, especially a Great Dane, is a serious responsibility that should be considered.

Fortunately, our Danes have helped us get it right over the years and asked that we pay it forward:)

It is common knowledge that caring for a dog requires shelter, food, water, grooming and veterinary care. Understand that with a Great Dane, these tangible requirements are greater than a canine of a smaller size.

How big are Great Danes really?

Good question, have a look at our Great Dane growth chart for a comparison of age, weight, and height.

Ah, the Great Dane size factor! Truly a marvel among canines, a traffic stopper, conversation starter and jaw dropper.

Logically, with great size comes increased expenses. Your out of pocket cost for things like dog medicines and health care can be quite a shock. Great Dane health insurance however, is a wise choice that can really help keep medical costs in check.

Come Visit Us

KGDR is a foster-based rescue program. We do not have a central location which means that all of our danes live as pets in a foster home until adopted. If you wish to meet one of KGDR's adoptable danes, please fill out an application. Once approved, a meeting will be scheduled.

We are always exploring opportunities for Great Dane meet-ups, fundraisers and events. If you are the owner of a business who would like to sponsor an event for KGDR Danes, please email us. KentuckyGreatDaneRescue@Yahoo.com
