The Big Mutt Network

 Based in Arizona and operating nationwide, Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned, neglected and abused dogs, providing them with the love, care, and medical attention they need while working tirelessly to find them forever homes. We strive to be a voice for the voiceless and to educate the community on the importance of responsible pet ownership. We are committed to reducing the number of dogs in shelters by promoting adoption, spaying, and neutering, and by providing ongoing support to our adopters. We are a dedicated group of animal lovers who believe that every dog deserves a second chance at a happy life.
Looking to adopt? We always have dogs for adoption and work to provide ongoing education regarding responsible dog ownership and care. Our adoptable mutts live in foster homes, not a shelter. We work to match every adoptable mutt with the best home possible, based first and foremost on the muttsโ€™ needs.
The Big Mutt Network is a registered non-profit dog rescue with the state of Arizona and a 501(c)3 charity. Donations are tax-deductible and always appreciated. Feel free to look through our website and if you don’t find the answers you need here, please contact us.

Meet Angus and Malcom
Mastiff Mix
89-90 lbs
Unaltered
Vaccinated
Tucson Az

These boys were having a great time just running free and harassing Livestock. Until they were caught! They have now found themselves in doggy jail! They haven't been feeling good for the last couple of weeks. Sounds like they got a bad case of bordetella. They've been on medication but are still snotty. They need an outlet!
Shelter thinks they are between a year and 18 months
They are dog friendly. I would say big dogs only
They appear to be very, very people friendly. We suspect that they would be okay with children as well!
They're currently in the Tucson shelter!
Who has room for one or both of these boys? They need some love
Due to them not feeling well we would prefer to put them in a home that does not have other dogs at this time

Thank you so much!โค

Thank You doesn't seem to express just how Wonderful your organization is and how readily when in need, so many followers begin the offer to help immediately !! From afar I send prayers and thanks for going far and above any rescue service I have known!! Your kindness and care is Remarkable and a Blessing to every animal who finds themselves in your care. God Bless.

FROM a foster, THANKYOU! With out the support of TBMN being able to provide food and medical I could not provide a safe and loving place for the pups!

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of a true gentle giant Sergeant Jake Pretzel. Last night, after a long day of battling illness, Jake was unable to overcome his condition, and we made the difficult decision to let him go.

Despite the best efforts of the amazing veterinary team at the Veterinary Emergency Group in Phoenix it became clear that Jake required surgery to overcome his illness. However, his weakened state meant that he would not be able to survive the operation. In the end, we had to put his well-being first and make the tough call to let him go.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to Jake's foster for staying with him throughout the entire day and in his final moments. Her unwavering love and support for Jake were evident in her actions, and we are forever grateful for her kindness and dedication.

To those who knew and loved Jake, we understand how much he meant to you. We saw the love and care that you gave him, and we are truly touched by your compassion. Your presence at the vet clinic yesterday was a testament to the bond that you had with Jake, and we know that he felt your love until his final breath.

Sergeant Jake Pretzel was more than just a dog - he was a loyal companion, a brave protector, and a friend to all who met him. His loss leaves a void in our hearts, but we take solace in knowing that he lived a life full of love and purpose.

Rest in peace, Sergeant Jake Pretzel. You will always be remembered for your courage, your loyalty, and your unwavering spirit.

Luckily, zayda had neither a blockage nor bloat She does however have a bad bacterial infection. They gave her fluids and a shot and sent her home on some antibiotics. They are sure that she will make up over recovery
A huge thank you to her foster Norma and her husband for acting so quickly and getting Zayda to the vet, so thank you to everyone who donated. You have no idea what it means to us when you are willing to give us a few of your hard earned dollars to help save a life!
We are always humbled by your generosity and we absolutely could not do this without you
So from the bottom of our BIG MUTT hearts
Thank YOUZayda is on her way to the emergency vet. We suspect bloat. Keep her fosters and Zayda in your thoughts. Wellwe know more. We need some adoptions ๐Ÿ˜ณ this is going to be expensive
