Gentle Giants Great Dane Rescue


Our mission here at Gentle Giants Great Dane Rescue is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re home Great Danes to loving and safe forever homes.


We thoroughly vet potential adopters, require home visits, reference checks, and will do all that we can to match the personality and needs of a Dane with a family that will be the best fit. 


The Danes in our rescue are not placed in a shelter or facility type setting, but rather in our homes, or in approved foster homes that follow strict requirements to ensure the safety and well-being of each Dane. Our rescues are part of our families, and we require follow up visits, health checks, and stay in contact with all of the families that have opened their homes and their hearts to this amazing breed. We also work with local veterinarians that are familiar with giant breed dogs to provide full medical treatments and the best care for all of our rescues. 

Gentle Giants Great Dane Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit corporation incorporated in the State of Florida and a 501(c)(3) with the Internal Revenue Service. Gentle Giants GDR is registered with the State of Florida to accept donations to help fund the rescue. Gentle Giants is completely volunteer run and 100% of proceeds go directly to the Danes!

Featured Dane - Coda


Coda is a one year old black female Dane. Coda is good with kids and dogs of all sizes. She is potty trained, crate trained, and trustworthy in the house. She is a very shy girl that is benefiting greatly from socializing in her foster home. This sweet princess is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and will be spayed and gastropexied before being adopted.
