It's OK. We're here to help.
GLMR volunteers have worked with hundreds of families to help find homes for their beloved Mastiffs. Whether it is a puppy, a senior, or a special needs dog, we would be happy to speak with you about our program and how it works. Our approach is one where only the best families adopt our dogs. And we stand by our placements throughout your Mastiff's lifetime.
