Maintaining homeless Mastiffs is an expensive proposition. Since
Mastiffs are classified as a giant breed, most of the normal expenses
associated with caring for a dog are great due to the sheer size of the
animal. For example, medications must be issued in great strengths, food
and supplements are consumed in larger quantities and at great rates,
surgical costs can total into the thousands of dollars and containment
systems are larger and more costly, all due to the size of this breed of
dog. Dovetailing with the above is the increased popularity of this
breed with the public. Annually, hundreds of families obtain this kind
of dog with little or no knowledge of the breed, the costs involved in
maintaining such an animal or it the proper care and training that are
necessary to successfully keep a Mastiff. The result is an alarming
increase in the number of Mastiffs which are mistreated, neglected,
abused and/or abandoned by their owners.
Friends of Rescued Mastiffs, Inc. has a two-fold aim:
1. To provide information to owners and potential owners so that they
can better care for their Mastiff, thereby preventing potential
mistreatment, abuse or re-homing situations.
2. to provide supplies, services and financial assistance for the
Mastiffs which have been relinquished or abandoned by their owners.
Our organization shall solicit for cash and non-cash donations for the
items necessary in the care of the Mastiffs in need (including, but not
limited to food, nutritional supplements, toys, bedding, leashes,
collars and medications), distribute these supplies and subsidize
veterinary expenses incurred by these homeless Mastiffs. By undertaking
these two endeavors, Friends of Rescued Mastiffs, Inc. can actively
decrease the number of homeless Mastiffs and provide the necessary
supplies, services and funds needed to care for the dogs who need to
find new, loving homes
