March for Health

One of our largest fundraisers of the year is our annual March for Health which is held at our Mastiff Club of America National Specialty Dog Show each year. The March for Health was originally set up as the PRA Walk through the Mastiff Club of America which helped raise money to find the gene responsible for Progressive Retinal Atrophy in Mastiffs and led to the development of a PRA DNA Test that is helping us eliminate PRA from our Breed. Once the PRA Committee’s goal was accomplished, they handed this wonderful fund raising event over to the MCOA Health Committee to allow us to generate funding for other health projects! Now all proceeds generated from the Annual March for Health are placed in the Mastiff Club of America Charitable Trust’s 501(c)3 general fund to be used for a variety of health concerns. At the next National Specialty, please sponsor the March for Health!

 

 

 

Silent Auction

We also raise money through the Mastiff Club of America’s annual Silent Auction which is also held at our National Specialty Show.  This event was originally set up to raise money primarily for Mastiff Rescue and has graciously been expanded to allow fund raising for Health as well.  The Silent auction is manned entirely by volunteers.  Generous Mastiff lovers and various companies donate all of the items which are auctioned off to the highest bidders.  It is amazing to see the volunteers show up, the items flow in and watch the room fill with people willing to spend money to help our Breed!

 

Purina Parent Club Partnership Program

The Mastiff Club of America is a participant in the  Purina® Parent Club Program (PPCP), which supports health research through the AKC CHF Mastiff Donor Advised Fund that benefits Mastiffs.  Click Here For more Information

 If you feed Purina brand dog food to your dogs, we encourage you to become a Purina Pro Club® member and participate in the Purina® Parent Club Program.  You can then earn valuable points for your qualifying Purina® brand dog food purchases which can be used toward future dog food purchases and the MCOA will earn an additional 10% of the value of all points!

 

 

 

Online Health Store

Another form of Support is to purchase a variety of Mastiff items we sell through the Charitable Trust’s Online Health Store.  This includes old issues of the Mastiff Stud Dog Books, National Specialty Health Seminar Videos and other Mastiff related items.

Annual Northeast Ohio Mastiff Picnic

 

 

 

Every year a friendly group of Mastiff Lovers  have a picnic in North East Ohio to help raise funds for Mastiff Health Research and Mastiff Rescue.  The money has been divided equally between the MCOA Charitable Trust and one of the Mastiff Rescue organizations (such as FORM or the RFI).  To raise this money, they have to solicit vendors, businesses, and friends to donate money and raffle items.  If you would like to help with this annual fundraiser, please contact Kim Fish at: 330-925-1972 or kmurray@neo.rr.com
