The Rottweiler Rescue Foundation was established more than twenty years ago, and has been providing semi-annual grants to Rottweiler rescue organizations since that time. Initially a collaboration of the Colonial Rottweiler Club, the Medallion Rottweiler Club and the American Rottweiler Club, the organization dates its roots back to 1997. To date, the Foundation has distributed over $250,000. This figure has impacted 10,000+ Rottweilers from more than 45 rescue organizations in the United States.

Any group or individual that is actively involved in rescuing Rottweilers is eligible to apply for a Rottweiler Rescue Foundation Grant.  All those applying must have a specific rescue policy established and adhered to, which includes a statement that all dogs are spayed/neutered before adoption (unless a medical condition exists to prevent such surgery), and a statement that any dog with an unacceptable temperament will not be placed.

Other Funding

We are blessed, through the generosity of Rottweiler lovers to have over $3700 in our Stoltz Fund. This fund was created during the aftermath of Katrina in memory of Linda Stoltz, who lost her battle with cancer in 2008. Also, we have through the generosity of supporters over $1800 in the Joe Walker Emergency Fund and over $13, 000 in a Disaster Fund. All these monies have been specifically earmarked for disasters or emergencies and of course will be used as dictated by donors.


The Rottweiler Rescue Foundation has been able to assist rescue groups with grants because of the generosity of CRC, MRC & ARC members, private memorial donations, ‘Goat Insurance’, yearly donations from specialty auctions, and monies from a Purina Parent Membership. The Foundation is staffed solely by volunteers.

The Rottweiler Rescue Foundation is a tax exempt organization operation under IRS section 501(c)3.
