Meet Elsa - Our Latest Rescue

Elsa is the sweetest one and a half year old Harlequin Dane. She is a friendly, outgoing girl who came to rescue after bouncing from home to home (four homes her first five and a half months) through no fault of her own. Her last owner surrendered her because she didn't have enough time for her. Elsa needed a little basic training, but learned really quickly. She's a snuggler, and she can LEAN!! And her tail never stopped wagging!! She was looking for an active home with a young canine companion who would love running and playing as much as she does. Elsa was adopted recently by a wonderful family in Maryland. She and her new Dane brother were instant friends, and they are doing an excellent job of helping each other burn off excess puppy energy.


We always have Danes just waiting for their perfect homes – you can see their pictures and descriptions here!

The WV Chapter - - In Short!!

MAGDRL rescues Great Danes from a variety of situations.  Sometimes the owners can no longer afford to care for them; some are abandoned or abused.  We provide loving foster homes, medical care, and training as needed, while searching for their forever family. At any one time, we have an average of about 70 Great Danes in need of homes. We always need foster homes and volunteers.

Would you like to help? Or maybe just meet some Danes?? We hold regular events - check out our Calendar for upcoming dates and locations. Here is one of our boys (the lap-sitter) about to travel to his “Forever Home” with his new owner/friends.

Also shown are his foster home hostess, Audrey, and her own Dane, Mirembe.

Halls at Petsmart 2010
Volunteers help out in a number of ways. Here are two with their Dane at a money-raising event at PetSmart last Christmas. Santa looks tired but Mirembe seems ready for more!

This is the May 3, 2016 edition of the WV-MAGDRL Web Site.
