Our Mission:
Dedicated to saving and placing unwanted and neglected Great Danes and Dane mixes in permanent homes. Evaluating both Dane and potential family to ensure a proper placement for a forever outcome.

Our Goal:
To be the voice for the voiceless; educate on the importance of spay, neuter, shots and preventatives. Encourage people to be advocates and report any potential neglect or abuse. Please Contact Us if you know a Dane in need.
