MidAmerica Rottweiler Rescue (MARR) was founded in March 1999. We are always looking for Rottweiler enthusiasts of all experience levels who are interested in becoming volunteers. The only membership dues required are your love of the breed and a desire to help. There is something for everyone to do! If you wish to help this wonderful breed, volunteer!
This rescue organization was formed because we saw a great need for a rescue network in the states of northeastern Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. While some of these states have strong and successful Rescue groups, there are gaps in area coverage and some states have no Rescue at all.
Rottweilers are loyal, courageous and loving dogs. Contrary to popular belief, a Rottweiler that has been raised with children makes a wonderfully attentive guardian and best friend. As with any dog, they give what they receive. If they are abused, starved, beaten or ignored they may retaliate in self-defense. However, we have taken dogs into Rescue who have been mercilessly abused, and still they continue to trust and love.
MARR receives dogs from private shelters, Humane Societies, animal control facilities, and other organizations where a dog has been abandoned. In most cases we adopt Rottweilers from the shelters as a "last resort" adopter, giving the shelter maximum time to adopt the dog through their own system. However we do help the owner place those dogs on a referral basis.
If you are interested in adopting a dog from our organization , please fill out an adoption application at MidAmerica Rottweiler Rescue . If at this time you are unable to adopt, please consider sponsoring one of our foster dogs, which can be done on the website.
We have quite a few new dogs already in foster homes and more on the way soon. Please check back periodically, we might have your next new friend!!!
If you decide to sponsor a specific dog in our rescue program we will keep you informed of your dogs progress. Sponsors will receive a known history of the dog they sponsor plus a photo and regular updates by email. Please know that all your contributions will go to help your sponsor dog. MidAmerica Rottweiler Rescue is supported totally through donations and fund raising efforts of the members. No tax monies support our organization. We are organized as a nonprofit organization and are recognized as a federal nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. This allows for public support and guarantees any donor tax deductible benefits according to current laws. Donations to MARR fall into the 50% category.
