A MESSAGE FROM MAGDRL'S PRESIDENT

Thank you so much for considering adding a rescue Dane to your home. Before you begin the process to adopt, I would like to give you some information about the process which can take up to a month to complete. We do very careful screening of our adopters. Great Danes are not for everyone, rescue is not for everyone, and many people do not have the patience for the time it takes to apply to adopt. Please know that we are all volunteers with families and full time jobs, so it can take up to a month to get thru the process. But we know that the adopters who do make it thru are committed to rescuing a Dane and giving it a wonderful home. That is what is most important to us. If you know you can provide a loving home to one of our Danes, I hope you have the patience to go thru the application process and make it thru to approval. The NJ Chapter thanks you for your interest and looks forward to working with you.
MaryFran Cini, MAGDRL President

The Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Inc. (MAGDRL) was organized in 1979 to serve the seven states of the Mid-Atlantic region. It now covers NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, VA, DC and WV..

The organization is a DC corporation and has a charitable tax-exemption under code 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code - 52-1177018.

MAGDRL is staffed completely by volunteers. Therefore, 100% of the funds donated to our organization are used to help our Great Danes. Like all humane groups, MAGDRL is in the unique position of helping both humans and pets. In our case, the pets are Great Danes and mixed Dane dogs, and the people are all those who have or want the companionship of the breed or often, just dogs in general.


MAGDRL is 2010 participant in the
Combined Federal Compaign CFC #61823

YOUR DONATIONS MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE!



Donations are always welcome, and help us to continue to be able to bring Danes that need our help into our rescue program. Your donations help cover vet costs, transportation, etc.
