Our mission is to match mastiffs in need of a better life with an optimal family and home that will provide the dog with the love and life they deserve. We are an all-volunteer, foster-home based dog rescue organization that is based out of southeast Virginia, and, utilizing our established local and national network, we facilitate re-homing of dogs from the very first stages of retrieving the dog from a shelter or home, to veterinary visits for vaccinations and wellness exams, temperament and behavior testing and basic obedience training, and to the final stages of meeting and moving into the dog’s new home. As a non-profit (501(c)(3)) organization, our volunteer force brings over a combined 50 years of experience in varying capacities relating to canine training and rescue work, and our passion for these giant-breed dogs is unparalleled – we are not satisfied until every dog’s tail is wagging.
