San Antonio Great Dane Rescue
Homeward Bound Rescue
San Antonio Great Dane and Homeward Bound Dog Rescue in San Antonio, Texas is assisting Bexar County Animal Control with the seizure of over 100 dogs and puppies found living in feces and urine in substandard conditions in small outdoor crates
The court awarded custody of these dogs to the county yesterday. Now we must find foster homes for these dogs to get them ready for adoption.
Most of the dogs are Brussels Griffons, Papillons, and Shih Tzu or combination thereof. The age range varies from 8 weeks to seniors. (We are still in the process of photographing and assessing dogs.)
Most of the adults are heartworm positive and many will require dentals. Some are blind or have other eye issues and will require further evaluation.
If you are an approved foster, please contact us if you would like to foster.
All appear friendly. Some were a little shy but quickly warmed up.
These dogs are not leash-trained or housebroken yet as they have lived in crates their entire lives. So fosters must be patient and willing to assist with training.
We are a charitable organization. Our only income is from adoptions and donations. We try our very best to save dogs that may need a little extra time or attention. These guys can be a little more expensive though!
We are going to do everything possible to save the dogs we commit to, even those with unique health challenges. And we are not too proud to say that we need help to support this decision. Please donate to help support our foster care program. You can use the PayPal button on this page, come by an adoption event, or mail to the Rescue address.

To protect homeless, abandoned and mistreated Great Danes and other dog breeds within our volunteer care organization. To work with area animal shelters and humane societies in rescue efforts to help place adoptable animals into safe, loving, forever homes. To educate people about spay/neuter and the need for sterilization of all pets, proper health care of a pet, nutritional requirements, socialization and training.
All our dogs will go to their forever homes neutered / spayed to prevent the euthanasia of all healthy dogs and to reduce the number of unwanted dogs being destroyed each year. We try to educate the general public why you shouldn’t buy a dog/puppy from a pet store and and advise them about puppy mills and unethical breeding practices.
Spay and neuter your dog...be part of the solution and not the problem
WHO WE ARE
We are a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization and we are the number 1 Great Dane rescue in San Antonio and surrounding areas. We pride ourselves with all the volunteer work we do and everything we do for the dogs that we rescue. The rescue is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, the rehabilitation and the placement of all Great Danes and other breeds that are in the rescue.
WHAT WE DO
We evaluate the temperament of the dogs that come into this rescue and make sure that they go to the correct family. We ensure that all of our dogs are in homes that will provide a safe living environment, which can give the attention and interaction that the dog deserves. All of these dogs are in foster families throughout San Antonio and the surrounding areas and will stay there until the correct home will be found. They are NOT in a shelter in cages or runs; they are all in loving homes that share our beds, our couches for that short period of our lives.
Pet Guardian Angels of America, a national pet rescue and adoption assistance service also offering general and health related articles and resources for all types of pets.
WHO WE ARE NOT
We are not a shelter and therefore do not have a facility to accept or keep dogs. We need our limited resources to continue to pull dogs from kill shelters. For this reason, we do not accept strays or surrendered dogs. Our only exceptions are our specialty of giant breeds. These include: Great Danes, most Mastiffs, Great Pyerennes, St. Bernards, and some mixes of the previous breeds.
Requests to surrender one of our accepted breeds, please complete the surrender form, accessed by a tab to the left of your screen.
We would LOVE for our rescue dogs to have a comfortable place to sleep. For many, it will be their first bed. Imagine the comfort these dogs would feel after sleeping on the ground, in culverts, and in vermin infested corners.
