We study the Hawking evaporation of a class of black hole solutions in dRGT massive gravity, in which the graviton mass gives rise to an effective negative cosmological constant. We found that the effective emission surface can be either proportional to the square of the effective AdS length scale, or corresponds to the square of the impact parameter of the null geodesic that falls onto the photon orbit of the black hole. Furthermore, depending on the black hole parameters, the emission surface could switch from one to another as the black hole loses mass during the evaporation process. Furthermore, the black holes can either evaporate completely or become a remnant at late time. Our result is more generally applicable to any asymptotically anti-de Sitter-like black hole solution in any theory whose metric function has a term linear in the coordinate radius, with massive gravity being only a concrete example.
