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.
These web pages are devoted to the GLMR Rescue/Placement of English Mastiffs in the Great Lakes Region, which includes the following states: Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, and Wisconsin. To find information on mastiffs for adoption in other states, click on the "Other Mastiff Rescue Websites" link in the links section of the site.
To see some of the English Mastiffs which are currently available in the Great Lakes Region for adoption, click on the Available Mastiffs link on the top of this page. These dogs are in Mastiff Rescue and are either in foster homes, or are in need of a foster home, and are waiting for someone to adopt them. There are dogs available that may not yet be listed on the site and may still be a good match for you. Even if you don't see the dog you like please complete the Family Profile form and a volunteer in your area will soon be in touch.
The training deposit will be refunded upon proof of completion of at least a level 1 obedience class.
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.
