Review for Mastiff Rescue Of Florida Inc, Stuart, FL, USA
Never in my wildest dreams did I think that a group like MRF existed. Prior to working with MRF I had done rescue work with a couple of different groups to help save dogs and cats. I reached out to MRF when my husband, who grew up with Mastiffs, convinced me that we should welcome a gentle giant into our lives. I am a rescue person so I looked around and quickly found MRF. After an application and a house visit, we were cleared to be fosters. We quickly became foster failures. Before I met our first foster, I thought I wanted a young female puppy that we could raise. However, I was open to fostering any Mastiff until the prefect dog came along. Tank, a three year old heart worm positive male who had been chained up outside for the last 6 months, came into our home as our first foster. He was a gentle soul who was so grateful for having been rescued. I was adamant that we were only fostering him, but when I updated the coordinator about him I started crying and said that I loved him and wanted to keep him. Tank became a beloved member of our family. Since then, we have been able to help transport and foster several other dogs. What I love most about MRF is how people come together for these amazing dogs who through no fault of their own need to be re-homed. I daresay I love the people as much as the dogs! I am so inspired about how people go to extreme lengths to drive across the state to pick up a stray or rescue a dog from a horrible situation. The support of MRF board of directors is amazing. Directors have emailed and called me to thank me and check in. Never have I seen a rescue group work so smoothly. I think it's because everyone puts the dogs first.
