News and Stories from GDRNT

Happy New Year!

Our Supporters Rock.
A Happy New Year to all our Friends and Supporters. We could not have saved as many Danes without loving foster homes, dedicated volunteers, and generous donors. Each year I pray that in the coming year, Rescues are no longer needed as no animal is left homeless to die in a shelter simply because no home could be found. Given the trend in our email box it is not likely that 2019 will be that year.

A Dogs Life
I think there are lessons to be learned from our dogs... and rockpapercynic.com
pretty much said it better than I ever could.

Thank You.
To those of you who have donated to GDRNT or animal welfare over the last year we Thank You! $1 or $1,000 it is all so very appreciated and makes a huge difference. GDRNT is a 501c3, all volunteer organization your tax deductible donations go directly to the veterinary and care expenses of the Danes in our program. If you still have year end charitable funds to allocate please consider GDRNT. You may donate by clicking on the visa/MasterCard logo on the top right of the home page to go to PayPal.

Merry Christmas from Bridget & GDRNT

Everyone at GDRNT wishes you and yours a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and Blessed New Year. Bridget and all our fosters are enjoying the holidays with loving foster homes! We are blessed to have so many amazing people who support GDRNT and help pups like Bridget Bardog get ready to find their FURever homes.

To all our fosters, volunteers, donors, friends and supporters we say Thank you.

Even Santa Knows!

He knows if you have been good or bad and if you if you care for your animals! Before Santa heads out for his big night he made sure Allis reindeer are healthy and ready for take off! Regular veterinary care can improve your pets quality of life so you have them longer. While State laws require Rabies (some jurisdictions may have other requirements). That is just a start! A routine veterinary exam will be nose to tail and make sure your pet is healthy.

In the DFW metroplex there are lots of low cost vaccination options but we always suggest that you establish a relationship with a veterinarian. That relationship allows your veterinarian to know your pet and recognize a real problem

Santa's reindeer have had their check ups and are ready for Christmas Eve!

#GivingTuesday Matters to Mary PUPpins!



Want to join us in supporting a good cause? This #GivingTuesday We raising money for Great Dane Rescue of North Texas, Inc. Emergency Medical Fund and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. And on Giving Tuesday Nov 27, Facebook and PayPal will match a total of $7 Million in donations.

GDRNT has had almost $8,000 in Emergency expenses between Trent and Mary PUPpins. To date we have raised a little over $1,000 to replenish our Emergency Fund. This is on top of our normal veterinary expenses that typically run $3,000 to $7,000 a month our emergency fund is to cover those weekend and late night Emergency Veterinary Bills. That is with generous discounts from our veterinary teams.

Mary PUPpins doesn't need a spoonful of sugar for her medicine because she is recovering so very well! Mary came to us as medical emergency from a local shelter that knew rescue could get her the expensive care that she needed. Mary PUPpins needed a few day in the Emergency Veterinary Hopsital to get on the road to recovery. We are pleased to say Mary PUPpins is doing great but our Emergency Fund no so much.

Maintaining our Emergency Fund is important so we can make those late night decisions to save a dane without the additional worry of money.

This #GivingTuesday we hope to be able to replenish our Emergency Fund via a FB Donation Drive, our Donate PayPal Button on our website or any way you wish to donate:)

Happy & Safe Thanksgiving

Great Dane Rescue of North Texas has a lot to be thankful for this year. Even in loosing Trent we have found great support from our friends, donors, fosters and volunteers. While we are grateful for all of you we want to use this as a reminder of some basic pet safety and planning for an emergency with your pet.

Stop. Stop right now and look up the closest 24 hour and after hour veterinary clinic to your home. Not even kidding. In the panic you will be lucky to find your car keys. So find it and pre program the phone and address in your phone.... or just write it someplace you can find it fast.

Once you are there.. do you have a way to pay for emergency services? Most ER/After hour clinics require payment up front. Have an emergency savings or credit card to cover emergency expenses.

Better yet.. Help prevent trips to the ER by minimizing the most common ricks!

Never Forget.

As an organization we are blessed to have quite a few veterans as volunteers, fosters, adopters and supporters. While we are indebted for their service to GDRNT we are even more indebted for the service to our Country. The message was best stated by combat veteran, Retired Navy Seal Dan Crenshaw:

“This is Veterans Day weekend, which means that it’s a good time for every American to connect with a veteran. Maybe say ‘Thanks for your service,’ but I would actually encourage you to say something else: Tell a veteran ‘never forget,'” the former Navy SEAL said. “When you say ‘never forget’ to a veteran, you are implying that as an American, you are in it with them, not separated by some imaginary barrier between civilians and veterans, but connected together as grateful fellow Americans. We’ll never forget the sacrifices made by veterans past and present.”

When FURever Means Goodbye


Exactly one week Trent stayed with GDRNT before he went running healthy at the bridge.
