How to Become a Great Dane Foster Home

How to Become a Great Dane Foster Home

Of the four million pets euthanized each year in our nation's shelters, one in four is purebred, according to The Humane Society of the United States. Purebred rescue groups, like many Great Dane rescue groups across the United States, offer a safe alternative for unwanted or neglected purebred dogs. Because Great Danes often do not kennel well, rescue groups depend on foster homes to provide stable and safe temporary homes until they can be placed in permanent homes. In getting to know their charges, foster homes provide essential information to potential adopters, helping to ensure a solid, long-term match.
