Want To Adopt?

Thank you for your interest in adopting a Great Dane!

Want To Adopt?

The Adoption Application must be submitted electronically. A non-refundable application fee of $25 USD is required to begin processing your application. Applications will not be processed until the fee is paid. This amount helps offset the expense of long distance calls made to both process your application and discuss available danes for adoption.

After submitting this application, please pay the $25 application fee via Paypal to danelair57@comcast.net

You may also send a check to:

P.O. Box 5543
Plymouth, MI 48170.

The next step will be checking your references and arranging your home visit. Once your references are checked, our Adoption Coordinator will give you a call to conduct an interview. We will then try to match you up with the right dog. This includes giving you the name/number of the foster home so you can talk with them directly and make arrangements to see your potential new friend.

Adoption Fees

*the adoption fees are inclusive of all medical care, and go directly to our Rescue Fund to help pay the health care and rescue expenses. We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization (#38-3265880) and your adoption fee may be tax-deductible - check with your accountant please.

Please note that we only place Danes in homes with children over the age of 8 due to the sometimes-unknown history of a dog. For people with children under 8, please contact us for a breeder referral at danelair@comcast.net

And please, if you find a dog somewhere else, PLEASE let us know so we can conserve our volunteers' time and funds.
