Happy Thanksgiving for your Fur Kids!


We wish all our supporters, adopters, fosters and volunteers a blessed and happy Thanksgiving season. This can be hard when you are tempted to share your treats with your fur kids. Please remember what is a treat for you can be toxic for your pets.

Thanksgiving Reflections

As Thanksgiving approaches, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for. Our volunteers and supporters have helped over 1,600 dogs since Great Dane Rescue of North Texas began. Many of these dogs came to us in need of more than a warm bed and temporary home. In these cases we see the results of human cruelty and neglect, but we also get to experience the overwhelming compassion that exists in this world.

A Word of Thanks to Our Veterans

Today we ask that everyone take some time and remember those who dedicate themselves to defend and fight for all of us. We thank those who do so. We are blessed to have both active and retired military in our ranks so to you an extra Thanks and slobbery dane kiss.

Killer Treats... no this is not a joke.


I am seeing more and more cases of dogs perishing or becoming seriously ill from peanut butter, gum and other things that you may not think are toxic. Even a dane can be made very sick with a small amount of xylitol. I have even found it listed in "natural" peanut butter and low fat yogurt. Please be awae and if you suspect your dog has ingested xylitol please seek veterinary care ASAP.

Don't let Halloween Scare Your Pet.

There is so much more to this event than a fun evening. We will have great food featuring the infamous fajita bar with tons of fixings, fellow dane lovers, cash bar and some awesome silent auction items.

Over the last 14 years we have rescued over 1,622 danes and given them a second chance at Happy Tails. 97% of the danes that come to us are heartworm positive requiring expensive treatment, most are not spayed/neutered, all get updated vaccinations and some are very very sick. Average it out and we spend approximately $1,000 on every dane that comes through our program. Even with the generous discounts given to us by some of the very best veterinary offices in the area, it still averages ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS A DANE! There is no way all costs could be covered by adoption fees! Fundraising allows us to continue pulling not only the apparently healthy danes from area shelters but also those who are sick, injured or have special needs.

Great Dane Rescue of North Texas is 100% privately funded. We get zero tax or government money, we get zero support from AKC, CKC or any other "Pure Breed" Groups. Our "income" comes from dane loving, kind hearted generous people who donate.

Money raised at Divas Dudes and Danes allows us to continue what we have been doing for more than 14 years, and assures our future while having a little fun.
