Top 10 Great Dane Rescues in California

Below is the list of Shelters and Rescue Organizations in California

1. Mutt Match LA

An officially registered 501(c)(3) organization operating since 2009, Mutt Match LA specializes in rescuing all breeds and providing rehab, rehoming, and retraining in their Rescue Ranch and Sanctuary. The aim is to ensure that all dogs fit for adoption go through the process as healthy and safely as possible. If your beliefs align, visit their website for details.

2. Heart of Gold Legacy Foundation

This particular non-profit follows the code of courage and compassion when it comes to rescues. Though they deal in all breeds of all ages, they pay specific attention to Great Danes on account of their sensitive disposition. I implore you to visit their website to understand the crusade they have undertaken and to adopt a Dane for yourself too.

3. Second Chance Dog Rescue

Once again, Second Chance Dog Rescue is one of the best options for adopting a rescue since they work with every single breed in California. This is- again- an organization with a mission that is beyond admirable. If you want to trust that your soon-to-be pet is safe and healthy, visit the website to learn more.

4. Riverside County Department of Animal Control

This department is funded using donations and taxes paid to the state of California and serves the entirety of Riverside County, holding onto the mission of improving the county for both animals and humans. If you’re looking to adopt a Great Dane today or need some questions answered, visit the website.

5.  Stanislaus County Animal Services

Stanislaus County Animal Services is a rescue-slash-animal control agency that preaches a humane approach to raising an animal as a pet. As an added bonus, like many others on this list, the department does not believe in euthanization to make room for more animals. If you believe the same things this department does, advocate for it, or want a Great Dane of your own, visit their website to learn more.

6. One Dane at a Time

One Dane at a Time was initiated with the aim of providing Southern California with a breed-specific rescue to assist with the growing number of Danes needing homes. With poorly regulated animal control and the illegal breeding of Danes, the rescue aims to provide trust and humanity when it comes to these giants. For more information, their website is available.

7. Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions

Founded and headed by Burt Ward, the actor of Robin from the 1969 Batman show and an avid admirer of Great Danes, the ethos of this organization is recognizing that the gentle giants of the pet world are just that: gentle. To that end, the organization actively promotes the Great Dane purebreds and rescues. For more information, visit the website.

8. Great Dane Rescue of Northern California

In operation since 1987, GDRNC provides a ‘transitional’ sheltering as they act as a middleman between the adopter and the adoptee, as well as veterinary care to Danes left unwanted and neglected. They aim to provide these hounds with new and loving homes, and if you feel that your home may be one such place, visit the website.

9. California Great Dane Rescue

This particular rescue is somewhat special as it was started by one man who ran multiple businesses online and used that expertise to create a web of chapters in every state that would be responsible for taking in homeless dogs and rehoming them, which is admirable. If you’re looking to foster or adopt a Dane, this is the right place for you.

10. The Great Dane Rescue of Southern California

Boasting statistics of rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming over 1000 Great Danes, this 501(c)(3) is responsible for protecting both pure and mixed-breed Danes from euthanization and high-kill shelters and go through a retraining process to be adopted by loving families. For more information about adoption, donations, and volunteer work, visit the website.
