Our Volunteers

Our Mastiff Picnic Staff & Volunteers

The Mastiff Picnic would not be possible every year without the Mastiff Picnic Staff and Volunteers, most of whom work year-round to make sure the Mastiff Picnic is the best possible event it can be; not only to provide an entertaining day for all attendees, but to raise as much money as possible for our beloved breed. To each and every one of you, thank you for your dedication, hard-work and love of English Mastiffs!
