Gifting in your Great Dane

If you are viewing this page you have probably made the difficult decision to gift in your Dane for rehoming. If the reason you have come to this decision is due to behavioural problems, please read this first

For your peace of mind we would like to make you aware of our practices:

  • All our potential adoptive homes are vetted and follow up visits are conducted

  • All our dogs are fully assessed so that their needs and characteristics can be matched to those of the adoptive family

  • All our dogs are fed on Royal Canin for Giant Breeds which has reduced the instances of bloat in our dogs by over 90%

  • All our bitches are spayed prior to rehoming

  • All dogs in our care receive all necessary veterinary treatment

  • Our charity retains full legal ownership of the Dog throughout it's life. This allows for us to monitor the Dog's welfare at all times and should the need arise the Dog can be brought back into our care.

  • All our adoptive homes sign a contract requiring them to properly care for the dog and not to kennel the dog, use them for breeding, relinquish them to anybody else or destroy them.

  • The Great Dane Adoption Society never refuses to take in any Great Dane in need of rehoming, regardless of the severity of their health or behaviour except when their quality of life is already irreversibly compromised . However due to the large amount of Danes in need of rehoming we do need to operate a waiting list as our resources are limited. All our dogs are kept in our care until we find them an appropriate home or they pass away. We only euthanase a dog when their quality of life is irreversibly compromised 
  • The Great Dane Adoption Society is a registered charity ( No 1091717 ) 

To help us to provide appropriate care for the Dane you wish to gift into care please complete the information below and send it to us. We will contact you very shortly to make some arrangements.

Finally whilst we do not charge for rehoming your Dane, donations are always welcome and much needed. On average every rehomed dog costs us 600, so please give as much as you can honestly afford to help us care for and rehome your Dane.
