News & CalendarPoker Fundraiser - March 16-18
Northville Downs in Northville, MI from 11am - 2pm. Come win some money and support our Mastiffs!
Meet 4 yr. old Ginger, aka "Wiggle Butt." As you can see from her smile, Ginger is a love who enjoys nothing more than to snuggle on the couch watching TV (her favorite shows are Animal Planet and Cops). But she's also an exceptionally agile athlete (yes, we're sure she's a Mastiff) who is energetic and playful. She's house-trained, crate-trained and generally well-mannered, although she has been known to counter surf so her adoptive family just needs to be a little tidier than her foster mom.
Before she went on Prozac, Ginger was a little nervous, but now her anxiety is completely controlled and everyone who meets her loves her. Still, she needs to have a home by herself without children or any other dogs.
Ginger is currently living in Chicago, IL. Please fill out an application on our "Adopt" page and specify that you are interested in Ginger so that a volunteer may contact you!
Help a Mastiff in Need, Become a GLMR Volunteer!
Great Lakes Mastiff Rescue ("GLMR") has been helping pure-bred Mastiffs and their families since 2004. We serve the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and Western Pennsylvania. Made up of over 100 volunteers across the region, GLMR has rehomed hundreds of Mastiffs since its inception. We offer adoptive families a support network to ease the transition of the Mastiff into its forever home. GLMR has also counseled many families to provide support, encouragement and training advice to help keep Mastiffs in their homes. The care we provide our Mastiffs includes a high quality diet, the best veterinary care, and behavioral evaluations of the highest quality.
every Mastiff Lover knows, giant dogs come with giant expenses. This is
especially true in rescue where so many dogs come to us in dire need of medical care. Just last year we spent $45,000 for medical treatment including $10,000 for heartworm treatment, $19,000 for reconstructive knee surgeries and $16,000 for routine veterinary care. We are
blessed to be funded almost exclusively by your generous donations, which are critical
to helping us cover the
and the costs associated with keeping these dogs in rescue until they are
adopted into their forever homes. Thank you! Since we are a 501(3)c tax exempt charitable organization, your tax deductible donation can be made through PayPal from the Donate link on this page or can be mailed to us at: Great Lakes Mastiff Rescue, PO Box 308, Bolingbrook, IL 60440.
This month, our special financial challenge is paying for Fred's surgery! Read about Fred on our "Dog of the Month" page.
Maggie Mae is
a 9-year old sweetie who came into rescue when her mom fell ill and couldn't care for her. She was loved but obviously neglected and severely underweight. (Fortunately, she's plumped up a little since this picture was taken and she's about 140 lbs. now.) She's a sweet, lovable girl who adores her foster family including their 9 yr. old and even their annoying (but very sweet) 11 yr. old cocker spaniel and their curmudgeon
13 yr. old rhodesian ridgeback. But she doesn't like cats. At all!
She's a big couch potato but is very
protective of her yard when she goes outside. Although very welcoming of
strangers, she'll bark enough to let you know she's watching
things. She's fully housetrained and is a great girl who loves to be around people.
If you are interested, please fill out an application on our "Adopt" page and make sure to indicate that you would like more information about sweet Maggie Mae! She's living in Ohio and we're eager to find her a home locally.
