UPDATE: Oct 3, 2007
The rescue volunteers for SW Mastiff Rescue, some being former MCOA Rescue voluteers have joined forces to start their own 501(c)3 Non Profit. We have just received our Tax ID number and have applied and filed for our Non Profit status. We are not yet accepting Mastiffs into our program, however we are providing rescue consultation at this time. Once we secure insurance for our volunteers and the Board of Directors we will be ready to take in Mastiffs for rehoming. We at SW Mastiff Rescue strive to work efficiently and effectively to place Mastiffs in a home where they will remain for the rest of their natural lives.

This beautiful logo adorns the shirt front and back on quality white, Beefy T's. For a donation of $15 + shipping for S-XL and $18 + shipping for 2XL-4XL, you could be supporting a Mastiff in need.
UPDATE: We will reinstate Mastiff Rescue T shirts shortly. Please be patient as our transition evolves.
|Please read all you can about Mastiff's they are a fantastic family pet, great with children and are wonderful guardians of the home, although they are not for everyone. They drool, slobber on your work clothes, shed, pass noxious gas, snore like a freight train, and are very demanding of you. In return, you should provide them a nice cushioned bed to lie on, plenty of fresh water, moderate excercise, a high quality food, and ample floor space so they can lay at your feet. If you cannot provide all of these things willingly and without reserve, then a Mastiff is not for you. Mastiffs are one of a kind and not like other breeds of dogs that can be left unattended for long periods of time, they need to know you are close by and need to be near you the majority of the time.

|For one reason or another, Mastiffs end up in shelters, are found wandering the streets, are left abandoned in yards, or are turned over by their owners. This is where Southwest Mastiff Rescue comes into play. We will temperment test the dog, spay and neuter, and bring the dog current on vaccines. Then, a time consuming process takes place to match the dog with the most suitable adoptive family. One where both the dog and the family can function as a unit.
