DURING THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES WE ARE STILL UP AND RUNNING, JUST SLOWLY AND CAUTIOUSLY.
WE ARE DOING VIRTUAL HOME CHECKS, VET CHECKS, APPLICATION/FOSTER REVIEW. AS A "MOBILE/ FOSTER BASED" RESCUE WE ARE TRYING TO DO OUR PART.
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CURRENT APPLICATION/FOSTER PROCESS- WE WILL BE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN FROM THE SAFETY OF OUR HOMES, IF WE CAN PASS A DOG TO AN ADOPTER OR FOSTER IN A SAFE FASHION THAT MEETS SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES WE WILL.
WE ARE BEGGING YOU TO HANG TIGHT A LITTLE LONGER!
WE ARE JUST A HANDFUL OF NORMAL FOLKS WHO LOVE GREAT DANES AND WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR THE BREED.
We here at PGDR aim to provide the best care and placement possible for any and all dogs that find themselves at our doorstep in need.
We envision a world where the need to rescue Danes no longer exists but as that will never be...we will strive to change lives one dog at a time.
*Honesty in providing future owners of any and all details we have on any available dogs to ensure proper placement.
*We pride ourselves on having a high level of integrity.
*Unconditional love to each and every dog that comes through our rescue. *Commitment to providing the best possible out come for these dogs and future adopters.
To help every dog that we obtain to the best of our abilities in placing them in homes that will last them the rest of their lives, we want these dogs to receive the level of love and dedication that they show us

Hello! I am the Treasurer of PGDR&R.

We require a current Rabies and DA2PPvL vaccines.
We have a protocol for all surrenders, all need to have a surrender form emailed with proper paperwork, also we do preplacement evaluations to make sure of proper placement.
