Great Dane Rescue of New England, Incorporated is a diverse, volunteer group of experienced Great Dane owners who united in March 2013 to more effectively assist Great Danes in need, as well as the families who surrender, foster and adopt them. This service is provided in ME, MA, Ri, CT and VT. GDRNE is tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) charitable organization under of the Internal Revenue Code.

If you are contemplating adopting a rescue Great Dane please read about our process, expectations and qualifications. Owning and making a Great Dane one of your family members forever is extremely rewarding. However it is a big decision and provide some excellent information to help you be sure a Great Dane is the right fit for you. To learn more click on the "Adoption" button above.

Fostering a rescue Great Dane is extremely rewarding. Unfortunately not all Danes come to us ready for adoption. We rely only on fosters, not a shelter, to help care for these days through medical procedures, training and behavior needs as well as simply providing love and caring to bring them out of their shell. If you think you would be a great foster click on the "Fostering" button above. 

Despite all efforts sometimes there comes a time where a tough decision might be made and you need to rehome your Dane. We provide a safe and very successful program to assist you in such a tough decision. We love Danes to stay put and offer many resources to do so. But if in the end rehoming is what is necessary please click on the "Surrender" button above to learn how we can assist you at this difficult time.
