OPAL is SAFE but others are NOT!

Sweet Opal has clearly been used for multiple breeding.. but she is safe now because of a loving foster that opened their home and hearts to save her. Currently we have FOUR danes in local shelters that we are trying to find fosters for.....

Do you have what it takes to save a life?
Most of you know this but... it is necessary to repeat..

GDRNT is an all volunteer group. We do not have a shelter .. All of our dogs are placed in screened, qualified foster homes. You have seen this.. from us and other quality rescue groups... So what the heck does that mean?

On a typical day we get 7 to 10 surrender requests a day from people wanting to give up their danes. A DAY. There is no way we can take them all... Our first priority is danes in local shelters since the are most in need. We will only commit to taking a dog if we have a pre approved foster willing to take the dog .. No foster and the dog stays at the shelter.

A quality foster home understands that your goal is to be the SECOND best home your foster pup will ever know. It means you are getting them ready to be a FURever dog for their FURever family. This doesn't stop at food, love and walks, some will need a little more ..

  • Your foster may need potty training...
  • Your foster may come to you with some naught habits.. like counter surfing, leash pulling... that you will need to train them on
  • Your foster WILL need a transition period before being introduced to your personal pets
  • Your foster may need to learn to trust humans
  • Live in the DFW metroplex and agree to transport their dog to events, adoption meetings and vet visits

A quality foster home also reaps the rewards of watching a hot mess of a dog blossom into an awesome family Furever dog, A quality foster home loves to see the results of their hard work in the joy of a living creature... and the joy of a new family.

Fostering is like being a Nanny... you love, nurture and care for a dane.. GDRNT provides a crate, medical care, Heartworm prevention and support while we wait on their FURever family.

Do you have what it takes?
A quality foster home will go through an approval process similar to our adopters. There is a vet check, interview and home visit.... Still have questions email us

Go to the Forms section, to complete an online application. Mark the box that says "Foster". Foster applications do not have to pay the processing fee.

PS Miss Opal will be looking for her FURever home when she has gained enough weight, then will be spayed prior to adoption.
