About Our Rescue Group:

Mooch's Mastiff Rescue is dedicated to the rescue of the mastiff breed.

Come Meet our Pets:

If you are interested in any of the mastiffs or other dogs available, please email us for an adoption application.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process first requires the completion of the adoption application. Then, you will be home checked. Please be patient as this is all volunteer time and sometimes takes awhile to complete. The mastiff must be able to live inside and interact with the family, you must have a fenced in area and mastiffs will rarely be adopted to families with children under the age of 12, unless we are sure the mastiff has lived with children previously. Depending upon which mastiff and which breed of mastiff you are interested in, mastiffs are normally not adopted to families with the same sex dog. If you have a male, you can only adopt a female and vice versa.

Once you are approved and you have chosen your mastiff and the mastiff fits your circumstances, you will be required to sign an adoption agreement.

The mastiff you adopt will be altered, gotten up-to-date on it's shots and completely vet checked. They are usually also microchipped depending on availability. The adoption fee is $350.00, unless stated otherwise. For dogs other than mastiffs listed, the adoption fee varies.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
