Meet Elvis! He is a handsome young man who was shot in the foot and has residual buckshot in his other leg. He is in a cast and his prognosis is good. We still racked up a good size vet bill and are in need of some help with his care! Please help us help Elvis!
We are happy to report that George is doing well and recovering nicley. Of course he still has a long way to go but he is headed in the right direction now! THANK YOU to all thoes who have donated to help George keep his leg. THANK YOU especially to his MOST fantastic foster mom who is amazing! Follow George on our facebook page and look for more updates here!
GEORGE needed surgery to repair his humerous that had been broken for six months. Amputation would have cost George his life. Even though the specialty veterinarian reduced the cost as much as possible, the final bill tops $3,000
We are a charitable organization. Our only income is from adoptions and donations. Rescue dogs like George and Elvis are generally euthanized by shelters and some Rescues due to the cost of treating them. As a group, this Rescue decided that we are not going to be like others. We are going to do everything possible to save a dog. And we are not too proud to say that we need help to support this decision. Please donate to help George and Elvis. You can use the PayPal button on this page, come by an adoption event, or mail to the Rescue address. We are so very thankful for every dollar we receive. Thank you for visiting our page and admiring George and Elvis.
To protect homeless, abandoned and mistreated Great Danes and other dog breeds within our volunteer care organization. To work with area animal shelters and humane societies in rescue efforts to help place adoptable animals into safe, loving, forever homes. To educate people about spay/neuter and the need for sterilization of all pets, proper health care of a pet, nutritional requirements, socialization and training.
All our dogs will go to their forever homes neutered / spayed to prevent the euthanasia of all healthy dogs and to reduce the number of unwanted dogs being destroyed each year. We try to educate the general public why you shouldn’t buy a dog/puppy from a pet store and and advise them about puppy mills and unethical breeding practices.
Spay and neuter your dog...be part of the solution and not the problem
WHO WE ARE
We are a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization and we are the number 1 Great Dane rescue in San Antonio and surrounding areas. We pride ourselves with all the volunteer work we do and everything we do for the dogs that we rescue. The rescue is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, the rehabilitation and the placement of all great Danes and other breeds that are in the rescue.
WHAT WE DO
We evaluate the temperament of the dogs that come into this rescue and make sure that they go to the correct family. We ensure that all of our dogs are in homes that will provide a safe living environment, which can give the attention and interaction that the dog deserves. All of these dogs are in foster families throughout San Antonio and the surrounding areas and will stay there until the correct home will be found. They are NOT in a shelter in cages or runs; they are all in loving homes that share our beds, our couches for that short period of our lives.
Pet Guardian Angels of America, a national pet rescue and adoption assistance service also offering general and health related articles and resources for all types of pets.
WHO WE ARE NOT
We are not a shelter and therefore do not have a facility to accept or keep dogs. We need our limited resources to continue to pull dogs from kill shelters. For this reason, we do not accept strays or surrendered dogs. Our only exceptions are our specialty of giant breeds. These include: Gread Danes, most Mastiffs, Great Pyerennes, St. Bernards, and some mixes of the previous breeds.
Requests to surrender one of our accepted breeds, please complete the surrender form, accessed by a tab to the left of your screen.
We would LOVE for our rescue dogs to have a comfortable place to sleep. For many, it will be their first bed. Imagine the comfort these dogs would feel after sleeping on the ground, in culverts, and in vermin infested corners.
