Welcome

East Coast Gentle Giants Rescue, Inc is a foster based Giant Breed/Mastiff Rescue based out of Virginia Beach, VA. We currently serve the entire east coast with fosters in FL, GA, NC, VA, MD, CT, DE, NJ and NY. We are currently working on expanding our foster forces in some of the other east coast states that we do not have foster homes in currently. We adopt our dogs to the 48 contiguous states, we do not have restrictions on what states we adopt to, BUT we may have restrictions on a particular dog. If you are not located in the state that the dog is being fostered in, you need to physically drive/fly or otherwise make arrangements to come to the dog's location. We do NOT transport our dogs to their adoptive home and we do not transport our dogs in between fosters, it is too stressful on these breeds to make excess amounts of moves. 

IF YOU CANNOT KEEP A DOG THAT YOU ADOPTED FROM OUR ORGANIZATION, THEY MUST BE RETURNED TO US FOR RE-EVALUATION AND FUTURE PLACEMENT. 

Below is a list of breeds we currently accept as owner surrenders/shelter pulls.  Please note that we will no longer be accepting certain Mastiff Breeds as we want to generate our focus on these "rare breed" Mastiffs. 


Boerboel 
Cane Corso 
Dogo Argentino
Dogue de Bordeaux-Vary rare occasion
Great Dane 
Neapolitan Mastiff
Presa Canario

We will accept other Mastiff Breeds as space is available.



PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE WEBSITE IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO EITHER FOSTER OR ADOPT.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO ADOPT READ THE ADOPTION PROCESS PAGE, ADOPTION FEES PAGE, ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS AND FILL OUT THE ADOPTION APPLICATION.  THESE PAGES WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BEGINNING THE ADOPTION PROCESS FOR OUR DOGS.


**PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL US ABOUT AN INDIVIDUAL DOG, WE NEED TO HAVE YOUR APPLICATION ON FILE TO BEGIN THE APPLICATION PROCESS. WE DO NOT HAVE TIME TO ANSWER INDIVIDUAL EMAILS. IF WE THINK YOU WILL BE A GOOD HOME FOR ONE OF OUR RESCUE DOGS WE WILL CONTACT YOU ASAP FOR AN INTERVIEW**
