Thank you so much for considering adding a rescue Dane to your home. Before you begin the process to adopt, I would like to give you some information about the process which can take up to a month to complete. We do very careful screening of our adopters. Great Danes are not for everyone, rescue is not for everyone, and many people do not have the patience for the time it takes to apply to adopt. Please know that we are all volunteers with families and full time jobs, so it can take up to a month to get thru the process. But we know that the adopters who do make it thru are committed to rescuing a Dane and giving it a wonderful home. That is what is most important to us. If you know you can provide a loving home to one of our Danes, I hope you have the patience to go thru the application process and make it thru to approval. The NJ Chapter thanks you for your interest and looks forward to working with you.

Jaida – Rescue in Need

Meet Jaida. She came to us in early February and has found herself hospitalized and fighting for her life. It is unclear what has happened to her, but it is clear that we have to help her. She is just 9 weeks old and currently in great distress due to multiple health issues. She has fought through fevers, pneumonia, and low blood count but an infection in her hip and leg could potentially cause her to lose that leg. She has been hospitalized in the ICU on IV antibiotics and oxygen for several days now, and the vet staff have been working tirelesssely to resolve all her health concerns. She had one surgery to drain the abscess and infection in her leg, she may need more. Progress has been slow. Jaida is extremely adorable and even though she has had good days and not so great days; she has shown that she is a fighter. We are doing all that we can to provide her with the care that she needs. Jaida came to MAGDRL in February 2019. (2)

Jaida’s medical bills are expected to be well over $10,000.

MAGDRL – PA/DE Chapter

The Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Inc. (MAGDRL) was organized in 1979 to serve the seven states of the Mid-Atlantic region. The organization is a DC corporation and has a charitable tax-exemption under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

MAGDRL is staffed completely by volunteers. Like all humane groups, MAGDRL is in the unique position of helping both humans and pets. In our case, the pets are Great Danes and mixed Dane dogs, and the people are those who have or want the companionship of the breed or, often, just dogs in general.
