Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The purpose of the American Bullmastiff Association Rescue Service is to find homes for unwanted Bullmastiffs that we find either in shelters or occasionally abandoned at vets or take in as owner surrenders from people whose lifestyle has changed. We are not a placement service for our members' unwanted or returned dogs. We will accept owner surrenders from people who have purchased their dogs at pet shops or backyard breeders, but typically the dogs we place are of unknown origin and unknown age. All are neutered before they are placed and given the vet care they need so they can be represented as being in good health.
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.
