Because Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue does not have a shelter, we rely on our network of foster homes to provide a safe and stable temporary home for the dogs in our care until a permanent home is found. Our foster program is the heart of Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue. Put simply, the more families willing to open their hearts and homes to an orphaned Great Dane, the more dogs we can save.
As a foster family, you will be helping Great Danes recover from severe neglect, mistreatment, loss of a home and sometimes illness.
Welcoming a foster dog into your home is the first and most important step toward giving these dogs in need a chance at a better life. Often times, this is the first time the dog has ever felt loved and cared for.
During the time you are fostering one of our gentle giants, we ask that you work with the dog to teach him/her basic obedience and treat the dog as a member of your family. We will work with you to help you learn the skills you will need if you have no experience.
