Great Dane Rescue of SE Texas: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The $250 was used to help pay for boarding fees for Great Danes whom we have in boarding. Bella was the Great Dane who benefited from your generous grant.

By helping to pay for boarding costs, it allowed us to continue to help other Great Danes.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Bella was dumped in a neighborhood in Houston, Texas, and was picked up by the local shelter. Bella had been used for only breeding and we assume that when her breeding days were over, her owners just dumped her. Bella had numerous enlarged teets, some of which needed to be removed due to overbreeding.

GDRST worked hard to get Bella’s medical problems solved. Once Bella was released from veterinary care, we then searched for the perfect home. Bella did go to a foster home, where it was discovered that she had extreme anxiety during thunderstorms.

She was returned to boarding, where our behavorist evaluated her and determined that Bella had never been in a home situation and probably had lived in a concrete run all of her life.

Bella does great in boarding and has very little anxiety. We are looking for that very special home for Bella, who is super sweet, loving, and does best as the only dog in the house. Bella loves her new life, and we can’t wait for her to find her furever home.
