Southern States Mastiff Rescue - Pittsboro Pet Shelter

Southern States Mastiff Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and placement of Old English Mastiffs with families able and willing to provide a safe, loving, permanent home. Southern States Mastiff Rescue is an all-volunteer non-profit 50l(c)3 organization that was established in 2005. 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. We do not accept any dogs that have shown past aggression towards people or other animals. Mastiffs accepted into our organization have a medical assessment, are vetted, altered (spay/neuter), microchipped and placed in pre-approved foster homes until a suitable forever home comes available. Foster homes are a vital part of the program as this gives us the opportunity to assess the dog’s temperament, i.e. how well it gets along with children, other dogs, house training, leash training and level of activity. This information helps us determine the right home for each dog. SSMR can assist you in finding that very special companion. To date, we have rescued and placed over 1300 English Mastiffs.
