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 22 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 owner turn-in.

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 administered.

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:

The following site contains good information on the local spay/neuter clinics and the financial assistance available through the Maricopa County:

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.

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.
