Volunteers Needed

Provide a safe, loving home for the dog to heal from past traumas, gets needed veterinary attention and good food. Many of these dogs will need intense one on one to overcome past traumas. Each dog is different and will need different care and training.

Pick up the dog and transport it to the foster home. We cover all of Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, Northern Iowa and the eastern Dakotas. Matt Boundinot is transportation coordinator and will contact transport people when they are needed. A Dane Train will be set up so many people may be needed for a transport so no one will have to be on the road for hours on end.

A home visit is done on each applicant before a Dane is placed with them. This entails visiting with the applicant at their home, observing the environment, both physical and emotional, and determining if this is a suitable home for the Dane. Different Danes will have different needs in what constitutes a proper home for them.

Help is always needed to obtain donations to keep the rescue running. These can be in the form of cash, crates, blankets, veterinary supplies, Veterinary care and more.
