What is the true definition of a Great Dane:
"A friendly, slobbery, sensitive, loving dog that likes to lean on you."
If you have ever been owned by a Great Dane you would know that they are practically the biggest bodies with the smallest hearts. All they want is to be near you and to be loved. So what does Great Dane Rescue SA aim to do? Well in a perfect world that would be to save all the homeless and neglected Great Dane's in South Africa. However we do not live in a perfect world and unfortunately here are so many evil people out there who want to make a quick buck by breeding Great Danes. Every year the numbers increase, more and more Great Danes are dumped. This might sound like a mammoth task and in fact it is, but the team at GDRSA is dedicated to this worthy cause. They will keep on fighting the daily battle for these gentle giants.
To assist Great Danes in need where possible. You might ask who is Great Dane Rescue and how did Great Dane Rescue even start? Great Dane Rescue SA was founded by a small group of people who have immense love for the breed. Over time more people have volunteered their services and so Great Dane Rescue has been able to grow. Everyone now works together as one big team to serve a common purpose - to help the Great Dane.
One aspect of rescue work that is very important to Great Dane Rescue is the ability to educate. If more people can be educated about the breed and also the benefits of rescuing a Great Dane, all the hard work might not be in vain.
