I really do not know where to start..... my heart is aching .... but stories like Mollies make it all worth it.

This is Mollie in her FURever home .... she is safe because someone opened their home to fostering until we could get her healthy enough to be adopted..... in our care she took her no puppy pledge, got core veterinary care and even got a cute bob for her tail.. (she had a very bad case of happy tail that would not heal so our veterinarians recommended amputation)

Every day I get emails from about 10 shelters, at least that many FB Group posts about how our shelter system is slammed, how amazing shelter staff is working at capacity to save lives.

We will always do what we can but we need YOU to open your home to fostering to save more lives.... Great Dane Rescue of North Texas will supply a crate, food and all medical care. You supply the home.....

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 and we will get back to you asap!
