Welcome to Southern States Mastiff Rescue
We cover the states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. We place Old English Mastiffs that have been abandoned, turned in to shelters, strays, and accept dogs into the rescue program from persons unable to care for their mastiff physically and/or financially. To date, we have rescued and placed over 800 English Mastiffs.
*We do not accept any dogs that have shown past aggression towards people or other animals.
Whether you are interested in adopting a Mastiff, becoming a SSMR foster family or just visiting to learn more about mastiffs we hope you will enjoy browsing through our website. Please note: we are only able to adopt out and accept into our program pure bred English Mastiffs from VA, NC, SC, GA, AL, TN or MS.
SSMR is a 501(c)(3) organization and continues to exist only through the many hours of work our volunteers provide and through the generous financial support of donors and grant organizations.
FOSTER HOMES ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED IN SOUTH CAROLINA! Please fill out a volunteer application if you are able to foster a mastiff in need!
