Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Great Dane Rescue Alliance (GDRA). GDRA is staffed completely by volunteers. Like all humane groups, GDRA 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 who have or want the companionship of this breed.

The Great Dane Rescue Alliance (GDRA), Inc., was organized in 2012 to serve the North Carolina and South Carolina area. The organization is a N.C. Corporation and has our charitable tax exemption under § 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

We rescue homeless, and surrendered Great Danes.  We work to find them homes, educate people, and help this wonderful breed find a better life with a forever home. We couldn’t do any of this without our compassionate, dedicated, long-term volunteers.

Each year our volunteers donate hours of service, giving hands on care to Danes, educating communities, providing administrative support, and holding fund raising events to raise funds for GDRA expenses. We provide the assistance and instruction for all volunteers, so no prior experience is required. Even if you can’t foster a Dane there are so many ways you can provide support for GDRA. Contact us today to see how you can get started and be a part of the life-saving work we do.
