With the Covid 19 crisis is it getting harder and harder to find vets still operating. Due to this we are implementing some new temporary changes!


1. If you are surrendering your pet you will be required to have them vaccinated before we can take them. We are willing to assist with paying for them but it will be your responsibility to take them!


2. If you are applying to adopt, all dogs in the home must be vaccinated. We now ask that you call your vet for a copy of your vaccine records and email them to us! 

Thank you for understanding.

Welcome to The Big Mutt Network

 Based in Arizona, our mission is to provide care, comfort and compassion to Giant Breed Dogs in need while engaging and educating the hearts, hands and minds of our community to help bring about an end to homelessness and the needless suffering of these gentle giants! 

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. Our intent is to match every adoptable mutt with the best home possible, based first and foremost on the mutts’ 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.

Be a Big Mutt Champion

We are always looking for fosters to help us make our vision a reality. Our dogs need a safe and loving place to stay in order to recover and prepare for their forever home. We are with you every step of the way to help the dog acclimate and decompress. 

If you are not able to foster, we always need a virtual champion to help. You can still be a Big Mutt Champion by virtually fostering a dog who is in our care. You get to select a dog and provide a monetary one time or recurring donation that will go directly to that pup to help defray medical costs among other day to day needs.
