Surrendering a dog is a stressful and sad event for everyone involved. Owners feel they must give up their pets for a variety of reasons:

  • Allergies

  • New baby

  • Moving

  • Behavioural issues

  • Medical issues (in the dog or human)

  • Loss of income

  • Lack of time

At Dames Saving Danes Rescue, our ultimate goal would be to see the dog remain in their home as cherished family members, but we understand that in many cases, there just isn’t a workable solution.  We do ask that before you surrender your pet, you take some time to consider the alternatives. If after reading through and applying our recommendations you still feel you must re-home your Great Dane, please complete and submit our Owner Surrender Intake Form.
