Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

All of Washington State, and sometimes surrounding states like Oregon, Idaho, Montana if Malamute Rescues in those states do not have an animal in rescue available.

About Our Rescue Group:

WAMAL was formed in 1998 to help with Malamute Rescue in the greater NorthWest area to cover rescue needs outside of the scope of Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue by Cindy Neely. Since that time we have rescued on average between 70 and 100 Malamutes a year and have rescued hundreds to date. While none of this would have originally happened without a small few, it's the numerous (but sometimes still too few) volunteers that make rescue happen. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and locations. Most are already overworked and too busy in their personal lives to start, but donating their time to rescue truly is what makes it possible to save the lives of this gentle and loving working breed... our Mals. The pride (and pain) of our lives.

Come Meet our Pets:

WAMAL is strictly internet based. Most of all our correspondence will be via email, typically during the odd hours of the night that our volunteers are able to donate time. The dogs in our rescue are taken into the homes and lives of our volunteers, there is no shelter to come visit. There is no phone number to call. We are sorry for this, but with over 200 volunteers and over 100 dogs a year, there just is not an easy way to coordinate a statewide rescue other than through email. We can be contacted best at wamal@wamal.com which is monitored practically 24/7/365

Our Adoption Process:

We ask for a minimum adoption donation of $300 which is tax deductible as we are a federally approved 501(c)3 charity. Our adoption contracts can be viewed online at: http://www.wamal.com/docs/WAMALAdoptionAgreement.pdf

We have fencing and/or kennel requirements as malamutes can not be trusted to not roam.

We are looking for forever homes for our rescue dogs, and homechecks will be performed for all adopters, no exceptions. We love these dogs, and want what is best for them, we assume our adopters would want the same. Plus, the homecheck lets everyone meet eachother, get to ask and answer questions, and make sure we match the right dog for the right family for that perfect match that will last a lifetime!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
