Welcome to the home of the Great Dane Adoption Society, a charity dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of Great Danes in the United Kingdom.
We take in Great Danes and sometimes other giant breeds such as Mastiffs, Irish Wolfhounds and even St Bernards, from anywhere in the United Kingdom. We work with other organisations like Battersea Dogs Home and help to promote Great Dane welfare. Since the G.D.A.S. was formed on 1st January 2000 the Society has gone from strength to strength and after many, many hours of hard work we were delighted to have been granted “Charity Status” in 2002.
Our dedicated committee work tirelessly in aid of Great Danes in need, and we now have over 600 members and 300 home checkers and drivers.
All of our dogs are properly assessed and all of our potential homes are checked for suitability. In addition the dogs are all vaccinated and wormed, and all the bitches are neutered prior to adoption. Our Foster homes are invaluable, and provide an experienced safe haven for Danes being assessed. We currently help over 140 dogs per year.
Very few of our Danes are strays. Most are homeless through changes in the previous owners’ domestic circumstances and they make fine and loving family pets.
