Happy MAGDRL Adoptees
This site lists dogs affiliated with the New Jersey Region, however other regions also have many dogs. Don't forget to check out the dogs available in the entire MAGDRL organization on the main web site.
Before dogs are available for adoption, they are spayed/neutered and temperament tested. Any medical issues will also be addressed. When you adopt from MAGDRL you will be getting a pet that matches your lifestyle. Beware of "free to good home" ads - you may be getting someone else's "problem child."
To see more information on a dog, click on Our Dogs and you will be taken to the page which list our dogs.
Note - a "courtesy listing" is a listing for a dog that is NOT in MAGDRL's care. We are simply assisting someone else in finding a home for their dog.
- Phone Interview
- Written Application – We will mail/email this to you after the phone interview has been completed.
- Reference Checks – All references will be checked prior to home visit. We will contact your current vet, if you have one, for a reference.
- Home Visit – A volunteer will come to your home to visit with you and discuss care of Great Danes. Also, the volunteer will look for any potential problems and check to be sure that your fencing is secure. Your home visit does not mean you have been approved.
- Approval – After the above steps have been completed all your information will be reviewed and a decision will be made about adoption. If at this point you are approved to adopt, your area coordinator will help guide you to the appropriate dog for your family.
- Contract – For the protection of the Great Danes we place, everyone that adopts a Great Dane from MAGDRL will be required to sign an adoption contract. If you would like additional information on our adoption contract you can email your local coordinator and a copy of our contract will be sent to you electronically.
Once approved, we do our best to match the Great Dane to your requirements and vice versa. Depending upon your desires (age, color, sex) and the needs and personality of the Great Dane (how it gets along with children, other dogs, cats, etc.) an adoption can happen quickly or it may take some time.
