Welcome Great Dane Lovers
and soon-to-be Great Dane Lovers,
to Kentucky Great Dane Rescue.

We are a foster-based, non-profit rescue program serving Great Danes and adoptive families in Kentucky and surrounding states. We are a 501(c)3 volunteer-based organization.  All donations go directly to helping our dogs.

KGDR works to improve the lives of Great Danes by rescuing, healing and finding permanent homes for Danes in need. We educate new owners and our community about the Great Dane breed to encourage long, healthy lives. Our ultimate mission is to give a Great Dane a long and healthy life in ONE permanent and loving home.

Check out our adoptable Great Danes.  You can also find them on Petfinder.   For the most up-to-date information on our dogs, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!
