We rescue Neapolitan Mastiffs, and ONLY Neapolitan Mastiffs!

We are a nationwide, registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to rescuing the many Neapolitan Mastiffs in need, throughout the USA. We are always looking for guardian breed-experienced fosters, and families who are looking to make a lifetime commitment to an adoptable Neapolitan Mastiff! 

Over the last decade, Neapolitan Mastiffs have become more popular in the United States. Along with their increased popularity,  it has become quite common to see Neapolitan Mastiffs dumped in kill shelters, and we also have a constant flow of owner surrender requests. We believe this is mainly  due to the average person having the lack of experience necessary for properly handling this breed, and/or not having the financial resources to provide proper care for them. Neapolitan Mastiffs are amazing dogs, but they are not for your average dog owner.  Please make sure to do your research before purchasing or adopting a Neapolitan Mastiff.
