Adopting a Great Dane from the Great Dane Rescue of Tampa Bay, Inc. requires choosing a dog and filling out and mailing an application. The rescue only places dogs in Florida, so applicants must be residents of the state.
The Great Dane Rescue of Tampa Bay has a number of different dogs in its care, all of which live in foster homes. By visiting the website, adopters can find a current list of dogs needing good homes.
- Visit the website
- Get an application
- Allow a home visit
- Pay the fee
Visit the website and click on Available Danes. A list of the dogs available for adoption will appear on the screen. Potential adopters can see pictures of the dogs along with each dog's pertinent details such as weight, health concerns and behavior.
The Great Dane Rescue of Tampa Bay only takes applications by mail. The application consists of information such as other animals in the household, children living in the home, and where the dog will live, should the application be approved. Fill out the application completely and honestly and mail it to the address on the website.
Once an application is approved, a rescue volunteer will make a home visit. Adopters also must agree to allow a rescue volunteer to visit the home at any time to check on the welfare of the dog.
Since every Dane is microchipped, spayed or neutered and current on vaccinations, there is a $175 adoption fee for each dog to cover these costs. This fee is accurate as of July, 2015 and is subject to change without notice.
