Gentle Giants Board of Directors

Luna Osorio

Luna Osorio was born in New York, moved to South Florida at a young age and has been there ever since. Her love for animals of all shapes and sizes started in infancy. Luna has worked with exotic and domestic animals for almost 10 years now.

 

Her first contact with Great Danes was in the form of her beloved Dane Apollo. She never imagined that she would own a Dane in her life time, and now she wouldn't own any other breed. Luna is in the medical field and when she is not at work, delivering top notch patient care she is spending time with her Dane and all the other Danes she has helped raise.

 

Luna has worked tirelessly to educate the public, veterinarians, and new Great Dane owners on giant breed knowledge, and husbandry. Together with close friends Luna has found furever homes for multiple Danes ranging in ages from 8 weeks to 10 years old. To Luna every Dane is her baby and she won't stop until every Dane has a place to call home.

Tami Ting

Tami found her way to Gentle Giants as most people do, through their Danes. Tami has a beautiful female blue dane, a German Shepherd, and several kitties. Tami is an avid marathon runner and loves traveling to every state to compete in well known marathons for the best time. 

Tami has a passion for animals and is always ready with an open heart and home for any Dane in need. Tami began her work with Gentle Giants as a foster and volunteer, and soon enough wanted to become more involved and became a director. 

Jennifer Tabaszewski

Jennifer was born in Massachusetts, raised in Connecticut, and more recently relocated to Florida. Jennifer had various pets growing up, but never a dog. In her young adulthood, she decided to become vegetarian for the animals betterment. Her love and compassion for animals knows no bounds. She has supported many rescues and farm sanctuaries. She now chooses a vegan lifestyle, not to consume any animals nor animal by-products even while competing as a bodybuilder. 

 

While fascinated with Scooby Doo as a child, Jennifer always wanted to have a large, loving dog in her life. She had a negative experience with a rescue that luckily led her to Gentle Giants Great Dane Rescue. It was there that she fell in love with her first Great Dane whom she adopted, Eugene. 

 

Through her positive experience working with Gentle Giants Great Dane Rescue, she started volunteering her time and meeting more of this wonderful breed. Life wouldn't be the same without a wonderful Great Dane! Jennifer enjoys helping carry out the mission of GGGDR to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome these divine animals.
