News and Stories from GDRNT

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. ~Edward R. Murrow

GDRNT is blessed to have several veterans and active military in our ranks as fosters, volunteers and adopters. For their service to our Country and community we are eternally grateful. Please take some time today to remember those who have and continue to serve all of us in our Military. If you have served or are currently serving our Country we thank you and your families.

Veterans Day by Roger W Hancock
We honor you, who fought for us,
for country’s sake of freedom’s plight.
You kept the greatest country great,
by sacrifice of you who served.

A Note From a Foster Dad

We asked some of our fosters for stories to share for NTXGiving.... Don, Lynn and family are long time supporters, fosters, volunteers and hearts of GDRNT. This shows the fantastic people who make GDRNT. Since 2001 we have been 100% volunteer run and privately funded. Without private donations and people like this we could not exist.

Why We Foster

#NTXGiving Day Now Open

In addition to supporting recovery efforts, we are encouraging everyone to continue to give generously to local nonprofits who keep our region strong. #NTXGiving day is our single largest fundraiser and provides us with funds to help Danes year round.

Scheduled Giving Opens September 7 at 8am!
This year you can actually make your donation starting Thursday September 7th after 8am all the way till midnight September 13th. Those donations will be tallied at the opening of #NTXGiving! How cool would it be to hit our goal first thing in the morning! Just click on Our Direct #NTXGiving link for Great Dane Rescue of North Texas and make your donation.

How to double your money!
We have a generous anonymous donor who will match the first $4,000 and make it $8,000! This donation will be matched outside of our NTXGiving Total and go directly to GDRNT after we hit $4,000. We are so grateful to this Anonymous donor and hope you will show him how many of you care about GDRNT@

The Sky is the Limit! !
Last year we raised just shy of $10,000 in just one day of #NTXGiving so help us reach for the sky and hit $10,000 of Giving Day donations... with our matching funds we are hoping to reach $14,000... No amount is too small, (or too big) and each donation made makes us eligible for different prizes during the day.

Sling the Drool!
Share our site, our Facebook post, tweets... Tell your friend and encourage them to donate to GDRNT during NTXGiving so we can help as more Danes.

Stay Tuned!
We will be sharing stories from past adopters and foster parents, and fosters on how your donations change the lives of Danes every day. Share these stories with others!

Since 2001 we have been 100% volunteer run and 100% privately funded, please help us continue to make a difference.

Did a donor forget to schedule their gift? No worries! Donors can always give on September 14th from 6am - midnight!
