Here’s what KGDR families are saying about us.
I have so much love for all the people, dogs, and work they put into their organization. I have never found another organization like KGDR, nor have I ever felt like I “belonged” to them like I do with KGDR. The time, dedication, commitment, love, and effort each of them put into the fosters and the organization touches my heart. The amount of money and time they give to rescue dogs in need is incredibly inspiring. They take meticulous care of their fosters to provide them with the best care around.
When adopting my first rescue through KGDR, I had so many questions. Within a few hours all of my questions were answered with honesty, energy, and compassion. I appreciated all the time they took to make sure I was going to be an appropriate fit for the dog and the dog for me. They have always treated me like I am part of a big Dane family.
I am beyond grateful for the work they do. Because of them, my dogs were given a second chance. Because of them, I was provided with the best unconditional love I have ever felt. There are no words to express the gratitude for something like that.

I am located in Indiana and KGDR was willing to work with agencies and individuals in my area to make sure that they could complete a home visit and contact my references to make sure I would be a suitable adopter. KGDR also took my other dog’s temperament and disability into consideration when matching me with a new dog. When we traveled to meet the dog they had suggested for us, we took the kids and our old doggie with us so that everyone would have a chance to meet the new dog on neutral territory.
I love KGDR because I feel like the money I paid for Sophie’s adoption fee was minimal (especially considering all of their dogs are up to date on all vaccinations & spayed or neutered before adoption) and I got the truth from the rescue agency about her health, her life and her temperament. I also feel like that money was instantly put back into good use.
KGDR is easy to reach if there is a question or problem and they are very supportive of their adoptive families. They know your family, they remember your dog. They are truly in this business for the right reason. Personally, I am looking forward to the day that I can volunteer as a foster family for KGDR and help forward the mission. – Jasmine E., IN
This testimony is about Kentucky Great Dane Rescue. We had lost our first child, a Great Dane, two years prior to looking for another Dane. We knew we wanted to rescue, but had the most difficult time. Something as simple as a response to an email, application, etc. I found this amazing. I knew there were danes that needed homes, but couldn’t get anyone to reply back.
Then we found KGDR. Terra was awesome. She responded immediately. Larry brought his danes to our house for an inspection. Which I loved. Our daughter (4 years old) was able to be around his dogs. I wanted to make sure she was still comfortable after two years of not being around a Dane.
Cindy (foster mom) was great taking care of Sydney up to the time we brought her home. She also was flexible for us to come meet Sydney. KGDR is such an amazing rescue!!!! – Kimberly S., OH
