Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We rescue and place Mastiffs, Great Danes and Saint Bernards in California. We do not ship dogs.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a group of 5 friends who formed a no-kill rescue to reduce the numbers of Mastiffs found in the shelters in California. All Dogs received by our rescue are placed in loving foster homes for evaluation. It is very important ot us that we match the perfect dog with the perfect family. We want this to be the last move the dog ever has to make.

Our Adoption Process:

Upon completion of an adoption application we conduct a phone interview and a home inspection. We require a fenced back yard and that the dog be kept inside with it's family. No dog deserves being tied up in the backyard.

We require a $400 adoption donation. This includes a thorough vet exam, spay/neuter, all shots, heartworm testing, heartworm preventative, microchipping and fecal testing. Each dog is also given a flea and tick preventative.

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.
