Who has found a FURever home?

a girl as Sweet as HONEY!!! Honey was at a local shelter on stray hold when I went to pick up another dane, the shelter worker explained to me that Honey was sick and that the shelter was treating her but she needed rescue. We were able to pick her up as soon as her hold was up and get her to a veterinarian. She was suffering from a upper respiratory infection, contagious mange and the nasty secondary infections that often come with mange. With the care of our vets and the love and care of one of our FABUTASTIC foster homes...

This weekends FURever homes go to..

I have one of the best jobs in rescue... ADOPTION MEETINGS! Last Night Murdoch and Isabelle both turned on the charm and made it a very hard decision for this guy but in the end Murdoch stole his heart! Watch the video of the adoption meeting turned dane play date. Murdoch is a sweet young dude and I has definitely found his perfect FURever home. These guys are two dudes and I suspect we will be hearing of their adventures soon! (click on READ MORE to find out who else and see the video)

Go Rangers Go!

So how does your Dane show their Ranger Spirit... Visit our Forums and post your Dane showing off their Ranger Spirit! It was not that long ago that nobody would have ever thought the Texas Rangers could be contenders in the World Series! With hard work, time and a team effort here they are in the World Series for the second year in a row. WOO HOOO check them out now!


What it Means to Be a Foster Family

Frequently I am asked the same questions about fostering: How can you foster and let them go? Why do you foster? What does it mean to be a foster? One of our fosters posted what follows on the Forum and I wanted to share it with all of you.

Are you Super Cool? Adopt a pet and you too can be Super cool! Just check the video! It is estimated that over 500 animals enter Dallas Animal Services EACH week! Over 93% are NOT spayed or neutered! In the United States between 3 and 4 MILLION adoptable pets are euthanized each year.... It goes down something like this.... a neighbor's dog has an unplanned litter of puppies. They were going to get her 'fixed', but didn't make the appointment at the vet's office soon enough. It's only 8 puppies, and 5 already have homes.

Two more FURever homes!

This is your donations of time and money at work! Without all of our supporters non of these FURever homes would be possible. So click on the Divas, Dudes and Danes link and get your tickets today! Dilan hit the jackpot with a repeat adopter! He is now living with another female dane and a very happy FURever family who love him already. His dane sister wasn't so sure at first but she warmed up to his irresistible charm! AND... Some of our fosters carry visible baggage of their past life... aka "Shotgun Sam" is a good example..

Isabelle's Story.. a Story of Courage

This video is graphic but I promise it has a happy ending. Isabelle is a very special dane who will need a special family. She is like so many of the danes that come to us... only her baggage was on the outside. By donating or participating in Divas, Dudes and Danes you are helping to support our efforts to help all the danes in our program.

$15 Micrichip Event Saturday 10:00 to 2:00

A microchip is a great way to help assure your pet will find you if it gets lost. It is about the size of a grain of rice and inserted just beneath the skin. The chip can be read by an hand held scanner at most veterinarian or shelters. Once scanned your contact info will be provided by the microchip company. GDRNT will be offering $15 micro chips at the Teinity High School Pet Fair. The Trinity High School Girls Awareness Program (GAP) Club is hosting a Pet Fair. The event will provide low cost vaccinations (10 a.m.
