News and Stories from GDRNT

NTXGiving Tuesday, May 5th

In these crazy times many of us feel the need to help others, and so very many of you are heeding that call. Shelters are clearing as volunteers take in new fosters. Neighbors are looking out for each other by buying extra groceries for those most at risk so they can stay home. Essential personnel are risking their health to meet the needs of their communities.

New Year, New Beginning

Traditionally the start of the new year resolutions are made symbolizing a fresh start. A time to wipe the slate and start fresh. Eat healthier, drink less, excessive more, and be nicer then necessary. Some resolutions will stick and others fall to the wayside.....

Every Day is a new beginning at GDRNT and responsible rescues.

Many of you have been following Tater Tots story on our Facebook page, or saw the story of Nebulous discovering toys, Kahl thriving after his Addisons diagnosis, watched “The Dude”, Duncan bloodum.

The Why of the Holiday Season

No matter if you Celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus  or just enjoy the time with your family, I wanted to take a moment to wish you all peace, blessings and happiness. 

Rescue is hard (whips my butt regularly) but because of all of you we have been able to make a difference in the lives of so many pups and humans.   Yesterday we got an update from an adopter who adopted over 6 years ago. 

Santa's Veterinarian Clears Reindeer for Travel! Are You?

Santa, like all responsible pet owners, understands the importance of regular veterinary care! Especially if you travel with your pets. Prior to taking off Christmas night Santa made sure all his reindeer had complete health checks and where healthy for travel.

Give Thanks Safely.

GDRNT has many blessings that allow us to do what we do. We are very grateful to our fosters, volunteers, donors, and friends who know the importance of responsible rescue. So many people help us do what we do and we are so grateful.

Stormy at the Rainbow Bridge

I am not sure where to start. Sometimes rescue sucks....we all know that....... Sometimes no matter what you do the right thing is the one thing you least want..... but no matter how long we do this ... it still sucks.

Meet sweet Stromy.

Texas Sales Tax and Adoption "Fees"/Donations

RE: Sales/Use Tax on Pet Adoption Fees

Texas law requires that all humane organizations (Rescues, SPCA’s, Humane Societies, State nonprofit, and charitable 501c3 exempt orgs) collect and remit sales and use tax to the Texas Comptroller on their adoption fees. The only entities in Texas that are exempt from collecting sales tax from the adopters are municipal animal control agencies/shelters operated by a county or city.

Lilly is Why I Give...

My Life Before Rescue
Lily, The $10,000 Great Dane

Woof Woof Hellooo, my name is Lily, I am going to tell you the story of how #NTGiving Day helped save my life and helped me get ready for a FURever family! I am about 18 months old, so still a beautiful baby! Much has happened in my short life and it was not always so happy but #NTXGiving Donations saved my life and help get me ready for adoption.

Honoring Doris at #NTXGiving Day to help GDRNT

North Texas Giving Day is one of our largest fundraisers of the year and we rely on it to save Great Danes in area shelters. One of our generous donors has offered to match the first $1,000 of pre-scheduled donations to honor the memory of Mrs. Doris Huneycutt. Those of us lucky enough to have had Doris in our lives knew her as a tireless, fearless and dedicated defender of animals. Doris was an adopter, foster, volunteer and supporter of Great Dane Rescue of North Texas and we are proud to be able to Honor her memory in this way.

This year we are honored with $5,100 in Matching Fund Grants. Help us Honor Doris and hit our $14,000 total Goal!

So how does this work?
Click to visit NTXGiving day site and donate to Great Dane Rescue of North Texas. All donations "scheduled" between September 9th and September 19th and will be totaled to hit our total the morning of North Texas Giving Day (September 19th). All donations scheduled and made on the 19th will be eligible for #NTXGiving matching funds and make us eligible for "prizes".

We also want to thank our anonymous matching fund donors who make this possible to maximize our donations.

PS Ok be nice... I was trying to make it look like Holly was playing with a ball... our logo was supposed to be the ball.... Obvious right:)
