Each year, approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized (1.2 million dogs and 1.4 million cats).  Of the dogs entering shelters, approximately 35% are adopted, 31% are euthanized and 26% of dogs who came in as strays are returned to their owner. (Source: ASPCA 2015)

Most of the dogs coming to Mastiffs To Mutts Rescue are from shelters where they have simply run out of time.  MTM does not have a shelter facility, and therefore relies on the generosity and kindness of families or individuals willing to foster dogs until they are placed in their permanent homes with their adoptive family.

You can save a life by offering your home as a temporary residence for a dog!

If your primary residence is in one of the following states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, or parts of North Carolina, and you are willing to provide space, food, basic training, exercise, socialization, and care for a dog, please consider being a fosterer.  MTM will provide other supplies and equipment needed throughout your foster experience, e.g., crates, special diet food, and/or prescription medications. The same policies apply to fosterers as to adopters: Generally, Applications must be submitted by the home owner; We will not approve homes with children under 6 years of age; Homes with children should have a fenced yard.  Please know that each application is carefully reviewed by the adoption committee.  We reserve the right to make exceptions for special circumstances.
