Your furry friend awaits! Adopt one of our dogs today!

Temporary foster opportunities are a great way to provide a loving, out-of-shelter home for our dogs.

Every little bit helps keep our dogs safe and comfortable in our shelter.

Your help at the shelter or any one of our events keeps GLDR going. Volunteer today!



The mission of Great Lakes Dog Rescue is to rescue well-tempered, adoptable dogs from animal control facilities and from owner-surrenders and provide them shelter and medical care until they are adopted. We are committed to educating and assisting the community in responsible pet ownership.
