HELP! We need temporary foster homes now.

We are currently overrun with Danes who are in emergency boarding needing to be moved to a foster home. With the holidays coming, our boarding space is severely limited and all of these dogs need to be moved out of the vets' clinics soon. We are running in emergency mode, meaning we may have to limit our intake of new dogs - meaning Danes will begin to die because we have no space for them!


FOUND BECAUSE THE OWNER PUT UP A JILLION MISSING FLYERS AROUND TOWN! dogCane is lost in Lewisville since 10/23/03 with no tags on his black collar. He is 5 years old, albino with a few spots. 150 pounds - very tall. Shortly cropped ears that do not stand but press down on top of his head. Last seen down College Street.

If you have any information, please contact us at 817-651-2336 or email

The Holi-Danes are coming!


One-Eyed Jack: A Special Soul

One-Eyed Jack

Abandoned in the backyard of his now deserted home, the dane we affectionately call One-Eyed Jack survived with another canine companion until rescued by the Humane Society of North Texas who immediately called us to release him to our rescue for his rehabilitation. Jack was frightened, combative and confused. He reeked of infection, had green goop dripping out of his empty eye socket, and had knots and abscesses all over his body.

Shelby wants to thank you for your help

Shelby$1000 GOAL REACHED!!!! THANKS TO ALL WHO DONATED! Shelby is a sweet & very young girl in need of a radical mastectomy due to numerous marble & golf ball size tumors.

She has been bred twice by thoughtless backyard breeders (she is only 13 months old - responsible breeders wait until the dog is at least 2 years old). To do this, she needs an estimated $1000 by September 30th. Can you help Shelby to live a long and pain free life? (click to see update from her Foster Mom)

How Many Danes Do You See?

We desperately need quality food!

Can you please help us? With 30 danes, we are in dire need of quality foods. We prefer Nutro Lamb & Rice (both adult and puppy).
