“We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces…. It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and defeat to find the true soul that lies within”
Bullmastiff Rescue of Canada (BROC) is an independent, volunteer rescue organization, dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing of abandoned, surrendered and neglected Bullmastiffs across Canada.
“Why rescue?” (Original article by: Cindi-Lee Campbell, one of the founding members of BROC)
Over the past decade, the popularity of the Bullmastiff has grown in Canada. The number of breeders has risen from coast to coast, and the number of litters born annually is on the rise. For every action there is a reaction, and as with many breeds, popularity has had its drawbacks for the Bullmastiff breed.
Recognizing the need for an organized rescue effort in Canada, several fanciers joined together to form a national rescue group, independent of any regional or national breed club, and Bullmastiff Rescue of Canada (BROC) was born. Since that time BROC has worked very hard and has made some amazing advances on the rescue front, including adopting out dozens of deserving dogs to forever-homes, supporting owners in need of guidance, and holding some great fundraisers to support our cause.
One of BROC’s core competencies has been to recognize that we are a group of people drawn together by our love and devotion to the breed, but that as individuals we vary in our lifestyles and personal commitments. BROC understands that the kind of help each person can offer will vary, but we consider all contributions equally important!
BROC prides itself on our ability to work together, as equals, sharing our ideas and efforts, while concentrating on our common goal: to help one Bullmastiff in need, at a time.
If you are interested in supporting BROC, please see “How Can I Help” and contact your provincial coordinator.
Together, we can make a difference
Libby was a stray turned in to Animal Control. After the requisite holding period had passed and no one had claimed her, Libby was turned over to us for fostering and evaluation. Tarra from MonStars Mastiff Rescue fostered Libby and found her to be friendly, happy, confident and cuddley. Since Libby was a great dog with NO issues, it took BROC no time to find her a new home with Annette and Dean, friends to Bullmastiff Rescue for many years. Libby is now living her dream life!
Information and pictures of all of our available dogs are posted on the main page of our blog.
If you are interested in being considered for a rescue Bullmastiff, please fill out an adoption application and submit to the closest coordinator.
On January 30th, 2011, Julie Ott of Canine Foundations will be holding a seminar on Foster Parent Burnout at Pawsway in Toronto. A portion of the proceeds from the seminar will be donated to BROC! Julie works closely with many breed-specific and all-breed rescues, and often donates a portion of the proceeds from her seminars to rescue groups. In addition to her monetary donations to rescue groups, Julie also donates her time and knowledge by helping with evaluations and assessments of rescue dogs, and training and rehabilitation work as well.
If you are interested in learning more about the seminar or registering, please visit Julie’s site at www.caninefoundations.com We appreciate your support!
