Please complete the Guardian Surrender Form if you feel you have a Great Dane who meets our Sacred Mission! If your Dane does not meet our Mission, please consider alternative Rescues rather than completing the form.
While we do accept Great Danes from any State, please note that transport of the Great Dane to our location in Cedar Rapids, IA is NOT provided at this time and that all Great Danes coming from outside the State of Iowa are required to have a Certificate of Veterinarian Inspection (or Health Certificate per Iowa Code 65.10 below).

At DPDR we only Adopt out our Danes under a Guardian to Adopt program. By utilizing the Guardian to Adopt placement method our sacred Great Danes are provided a chance to go through their initial decompression in their new home while receiving support, encouragement and guidance through DPDR.
Homes in the following states will be considered: Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas.
Guardian to Adopt Applications will undergo Reference Checks, Veterinarian Checks, and a Home Visit Interview process PRIOR to being an approved home. DPDR retains the right to refuse any placement for any reason. If you are selected to become a Guardian to Adoptee a Guardian payment of $30 + tax will be invoiced separately, the Adoption fee will reflect this payment and reduce the amount owed at time of Adoption.
