Humans Only

Our one event a year that is strictly "humans" is Divas, Dudes and Danes and it is October 15th! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and allows us to save danes from area kill shelters and get them ready for FURever homes! Each dane that comes to us is spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, micro chipped and treated for any outstanding medical conditions. Medical treatment may be necessary for something as simple as common parasites; or more severe medical issues such as bladder infections, respitory infection, gun shot wounds, or severe burn.
Funds raised at this event help Danes like Allison who has had 3 surgeries to correct an issue with her eye and preserve her sight, been treated for heartworms and spayed. All this while under the loving care of her volunteer foster home. Allison is just one of over 1,363 danes rescued in the last 10 years by GDRNT volunteers.

Divas, Dudes & Danes is a casual night out with fellow dane lovers, a yummy fajita buffet and great silent auction items.
