Upper Midwest Great Dane Rescue

Upper Midwest Great Dane Rescue was founded in 2008 by a group of Dane lovers. Since then, UMGDR has saved hundreds of Danes, many more than we ever imagined would need us! Our mission is to serve the animal community by providing foster homes, medical treatment, and behavioral assessments to Great Danes in need of forever homes.
We accept Danes from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas. We accept adoption applications from the same states. Every Dane goes to a foster home where they are treated like a member of the family.
Foster volunteers get to know the dog so they can provide the adopters with as much information as possible. Our Danes are fully vetted including vaccinations, spay/neuter, heartworm and parasite testing, and any treatable medical conditions. All adopters must have a home visit and references. We carefully match each adopter with a Dane through our placement coordinators.

Naga is a 1 1/2-year-old merle female. She was being attacked by the male dog in her home. She had also had a litter of puppies. She’s cautious around new people but is doing great in her foster home. {Naga’s photos by Amanda Gahler}
