The Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Inc. (MAGDRL) was organized in 1979 to serve the seven states of the Mid-Atlantic region. We’re a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works to place unwanted Great Danes into safe & loving homes. We also provide information and resources for Great Dane owners and prospective adopters.

  • MAGDRL is staffed completely by volunteers. Therefore, 100% of the funds donated to our organization are used to help our Great Danes.
  • 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.
  • MAGDRL only places dogs in our geographic region of Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
