Mission Statement

Mastiffs To Mutts Rescue, Inc. concentrates rescue efforts on Mastiffs and other giant breed dogs and mixes. MTM encompasses the following Mid-Atlantic states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, parts of North Carolina, and parts of New York.
Our mission is to provide our dogs with the best chance to live in a safe environment, and to be treated with respect, compassion, and integrity.  We strive to ensure the best match for our dogs and our applicants.  We aspire to educate prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a giant breed dog into their homes.  Through our efforts, we will improve the quality of life for animals and reduce the number of euthanized animals.


We are indebted to our adopters. Without them, MTM could not begin to fulfill our mission, and hundreds of dogs would have lost their lives. Everyone who adopts an animal, helps to save the lives of two animals - the one who is adopted, and the life of a homeless animal somewhere who can be then be rescued because space in a foster home becomes available. Feel the warmth of a cold nose today!  Learn more about Adoption...


Our foster homes are individuals and families who open their hearts and homes to give rescued dogs a better chance for a good life.  A giant thank you to all of our fosterers for their selflessness and commitment to the dogs and to the MTM rescue mission.  Most of our dogs would not live long in a shelter environment.  We are always in need of dedicated fosterers.   Learn more about Fostering...
