Limited Intake Freeze

MARR has been on an intake freeze since the beginning of May due to influx of rotties brought into MARR with medical issues requiring treatment and surgery as well as some challenging dogs with behavioral issues needing rehoming.  We are now going to a limited intake freeze which means we will evaluate every surrender application and determine if we can consider the dog for potential intake or if we can only offer a referral to  post on our website. 

We remain committed to rescuing as many rotties as possible. Thanks for your understanding as we strive to work within our limitations and constraints. 

MARR Rottie “Mix” Disclaimer

MARR is dedicated to assisting every Rottweiler that we receive a surrender application for. Unfortunately, while we receive many requests to surrender Rottweiler “mixes”, the reality is that MARR’s demographics and fosters/adopters are primarily interested in the appealing Rottie traits, coloration and features that we all recognize and love.  It takes a tremendous amount of work by our dedicated team of volunteers and board members to successfully find homes for a large number of Rottweilers. It is distressing for our team when the Rott mixes we have committed to helping, remain under foster care, or sometimes even in boarding, for several weeks/months. This is often because they may not have typical Rott features. If you are considering surrendering a Rottweiler “mix” whose features are less characteristic of a Rottweiler and more closely resemble a Labrador, Pit Bull, German Shepherd, (etc), MARR may likely be less successful in finding a foster or adoptive home in a timely manner. This means they might remain without a loving “forever” family for a long time. You are absolutely welcome to submit a surrender application to MARR. We want to be transparent regarding realistic expectations of success.  

 However, there are other options along with MARR. We may be able to offer “Referral only” support, which means we will post the dog on our MARR Referral Website and provide your contact information.  Any interested candidate(s) would contact you directly for consideration of a direct adoption; the dog would not become a MARR dog and would not be subject to our contracts and guidelines. Please feel free to also reach out to us at info@adoptarott.org for suggestions on other available resources. We partner with numerous dog rescues, many of which specialize in mixed breed rescue, or more generalized large dog rescue. Thank you for your understanding, and MARR is here to assist as much as possible!

Shelter Intake

MARR typically receives dogs from private shelters, Humane Societies, animal control facilities, and other organizations where a dog was abandoned. In most cases we adopt from the shelters as a “last resort” adopter, giving the shelter maximum time to adopt the dog through their system. Rarely does our organization have the ability to accept dogs into foster care from private individuals.

Referral Listing

In the event that you are able and willing to keep your dog but would like to list it on our website, please fill out our referral listing form below. Once your form is reviewed, we will contact you by email for pictures of your dog. MARR reserves the right to refuse or remove any referral listing for any reason, as well as edit any information as deemed necessary.
