Great Dane Rescue South Africa

What is the true definition of a Great Dane?

"A friendly, slobbery, sensitive, loving dog that likes to lean on you."

If you have ever been owned by a Great Dane, you would know that they are practically the biggest bodies with the smallest hearts. All they want is to be near you and to be loved.

So what does Great Dane Rescue South Africa aim to do? Well, in a perfect world that would be to save all the homeless and neglected Great Danes in South Africa. However, we do not live in a perfect world and unfortunately there are many evil people out there who want to make a quick buck by breeding with Great Danes. Every year the numbers increase, more and more Great Danes are dumped where ever people feel fit.

This might sound like a mammoth task and in fact, it is, but the team at GDRSA is dedicated to this worthy cause.

We will keep on fighting the daily battle for these gentle giants.

We cannot do it alone though. We can't rescue without your help. With adoption fees, donations and our online shop income, we try to pay for the rehoming, medical expenses, food and other basic supplies for over 400 Great Danes that we rescue each year. Our vet expenses are past the R200 000.00 mark for 2017.

Great Dane Rescue South Africa is a registered Non Profit Organisation.
