"MCOA Rescue/Placement Service exists to aid in placing stray or abandoned Mastiffs in adoptive homes which will provide a high level of care and where the spirit of the MCOA Code of Ethics is observed.

The Rescue / Placement Service may assist Mastiff owners, who for any reason can no longer provide a home for their Mastiff."

In December of 2005 the Mastiff Club of America formed a corporation in the state of Virginia (RESCUE FOUNDATION INCORPORATED) with the goal that this entity would achieve tax exempt (501C-3) status and be a source of income for regional organizations involved in the rescue/placement of English Mastiffs. The internal Revenue Service did approve the charitable organization status.

The RFI is currently chaired (updated in 2011)  by Mary Speer and members Don Crumb,  Becky Campbell, David Henson, Dr. Bill Newman, Susan Pricket, Lora Myroup, Danna Burnett, Carol Heffley, Diane Lyons, Julia Kriebs, and Toni Hyland.

Their major tasks at this time are to develop a criteria for funding rescue groups, planning the fund raising activities for the National Specialty, planning other means of gathering income and making their presence known to rescue groups, the MCOA membership and the total mastiff community.

There seems to have developed over the past two years a perception that MCOA is out of the rescue business. This is not the case at all.

 With the RFI now active there will be support available from a dollar and cents standpoint and there has always been the Rescue Website available for those with questions, needs, or a willingness to take in a mastiff in need. 

If any member would like to get involved, contact your MCOA or RFI Board member..or just send money, it takes many dollars to do rescue right. You can contact the RFI Board at the following email address: RFIBOD@GMAIL.COM
