Mastiff Hope Rescue Charity Profile
Mastiff Hope, formerly known as Midwest-South Mastiff Rescue, a rescue region for the Mastiff Club Of America, is a rescue organization serving the Midwestern United States - primarily the states of Kansas and Missouri, and more specifically, the Kansas City metropolitan area. Mastiff Hope is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We exist to place stray or abandoned Mastiffs into adoptive homes that will provide a high level of care and where the dogs are loved and respected.
The number of English Mastiffs needing a new home continues to rise. The number of Mastiffs abandoned at shelters, pet motels, backyards, and hillsides is a sad commentary on our society in general and what is happening to this breed in particular. In addition to taking in those Mastiffs turned into shelters and found as strays, Mastiff Hope may assist Mastiff owners, who for various reasons, can no longer provide a home for their Mastiff.
When a Mastiff is released to Mastiff Hope, it is taken to a veterinarian for a medical check-up and necessary vaccinations. The Mastiff’s temperament is evaluated and we attempt to locate any past history of the Mastiff. These Mastiffs are spayed or neutered before being released to their new home.
So that we may continue to provide the high level of care to our rescues, Mastiff Hope is dedicated to raising funds to assist in rescuing, treating, and re-homing Mastiffs. Our mission is to raise funds for the medical needs of the Mastiffs that are rescued. This includes, but is not limited to vaccinations, spaying or neutering, and treating any immediate and ongoing medical problems the Mastiffs may have when they arrive in rescue. We do our best to provide our adoptive homes with the healthiest, most well-adjusted dogs possible.
Mastiff Hope Rescue Volunteer Information
Everyone involved in Mastiff Hope is a volunteer. Any individual may volunteer to assist. Once a volunteer has submitted the appropriate forms and been approved, they will be issued a Volunteer Handbook, including Mastiff Hope’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Operational Guidelines. A Volunteer Agreement Form will be included which states that the volunteer has read, understands, and agrees to abide by the SOP. Once the Volunteer Agreement Form is signed and received by the Mastiff Hope Coordinator, the volunteer may act as an agent of Rescue. Volunteers will work under the discretion of the Rescue Coordinator.
We are always looking for good people to help us in this much needed rescue program. You can help as much or as little as you can personally handle, whether that is in the form of long-term fostering, simple transportation to new owners/ fosters, home visits, or anything in between.
