KGDR is a 501(c)3 tax-deductible, charitable organization & donations of all sizes are needed. Treating a heartworm positive Great Dane costs a minimum of $730, but an antibiotic for treating infection costs just $4. Before any Dane is available for adoption, they are fully vetted & at a healthy weight.

An average vet cost per Dane from surrender to adoption is $320. As funds allow, KGDR’s Great Danes receive a gastropexy procedure. This procedure prevents their stomachs from twisting during bloat and can dramatically lengthen their lives.

Please consider helping an abandoned Great Dane with any amount you are able to contribute.
