Rescue

The GDLAWA is being pro-active in trying to help rescue Danes and Danes that need a new home due to a change in circumstances. The Association has contacted every metropolitan, and major country towns' pounds & rescue centres asking them to contact the GDLAWA if a Dane comes into their care. When the association is contacted, we will do our best to find the owners or a home for the Dane.

Our Rescue Coordinator keeps a Waiting List of people who have been screened as appropriate for becoming a Great Dane owner and as needy dogs become available, they will be added to the website and/or the list of people will be contacted to see if there is a match. Not every person offering will be considered for a rescue and we do not mean to offend. We do not contact every person for every Dane. We aim to match the dog with the right home so if a dog came in that was not good with cats or small animals and someone on the Waiting List had those pets, they would not be contacted. The goal is always for the Great Dane to go to its permanent home via this process so we do as much as we can to ensure that. If a Dane is a purely ‘re-home’ situation, the prospective owners will be put in touch with the existing owners, arrange to meet and the current owners will make the final decision. If the Dane is a rescue that has been surrendered to the GDLAWA, the Rescue Coordinator will make the final decision. It is important to note that the GDLAWA does not have kennels and cannot take dogs easily into care. We rely upon fostering by experienced members and at all times, their own pet’s safety is paramount. The GDLAWA cannot rescue Great Dane crosses but can add them to the website and assist in making the Waiting List aware of them needing a new home.

If a dog is in the care of another agency, we will happily load the details onto our website but the adoption process will be via the agency that has current ownership of the Great Dane. We work with all of the Rescue Agencies in WA and have a network across the country to assist in successful rehoming as needed but we are a small club and the Rescue Programme is supported entirely by member’s fees and donations. If medical costs have been incurred in the care of a Great Dane, the new owner will be asked to contribute towards those costs to compensate the club to a nominal value.

Donations made to the GDLAWA assist with providing foster care when needed, medical care and at times, behavioural training as needed. Should you wish to make a donation to the Great Dane Lovers Association of WA to assist this work, you can make a Direct Deposit into the club’s bank account using these details:

Great Dane Lovers Assoc

Please use the Reference “RES YOUR NAME” so that our Treasurer can allocate the monies received. A receipt will be issued if you use the Contact Us link and send us your name and address by email. Once we can match your details with the donation on our account, we will email the receipt with our great appreciation.

We will list on this page details of any Danes that are in need of a home. If there are no dogs listed, then please check again soon, we rescue or rehome 50 Great Danes a year on average, so this page is very active.

If you are interested in taking a rescue Dane full-time or just on a temporary basis, please contact the association.

Yes, I would be interested in helping one of the Danes listed below, or being added to the list
(When using this link please remember to include a phone number so we can contact you at short notice)

If you have an urgent re-homing enquiry please contact Lisa on 0438 833 626.

The GDLAWA is part of a national network of Great Dane clubs across Australia working to support Danes needing homes. Terrific information and details of Great Danes needing homes nationally is available by visiting the Great Dane Rescue & Rehoming website.

Lulu Large Female Great Dane - PetRescue

I am Lulu, I've just turned 5. I'm a super happy girl and love all people. I will miss my little human brothers and sisters and would very much like to adopt more, I'm even happy to share them with a feline. I've never been to training but I'm smart and keen to learn new skills. I need a human who will really commit to helping me walk nicely on the lead as apparently I have a LOT to learn in this department! Being quite mature I know what's not mine and need to leave alone and quite like my time outside in the yard. I'd really like to join the family inside too and will just need some reminders to brush up on my toileting.

Whilst I don't put my delicate paws in the water I like having a run around at the beach. I do my own thing avoiding other dogs. I don't mean to sound like a snob, I'm just wary of dogs I haven't met. I've always lived with a sausage dog and we just hang out and keep each other warm at night. I do have doggy friends that I've got to know and would be quite happy to get to know another boy dog to be my house mate. My other favourite past times include sun baking, car rides and alerting my people should a new comer approach our home.

For a smaller Dane, I am a strong woman but at the same time also have a very gentle side particularly with the kids. I will bring a huge amount of joy to my new home, please call Lisa if you think it's you!
