Adopting a Malamute is a serious commitment, requiring both financial stability and consistent living arrangements. IAMRA does not adopt to anyone under the age of 21. Although we rarely adopt to persons under 25, these applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis
We require that you fill out our Adoption Application on our website,, if you are interested in adopting. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, about our policies in general, or specific dogs available, once we have a completed form. Dogs are placed based upon personality matches with the prospective adoptive persons/families. Adoptions are handled on a first come, first served basis. All adoptions are based upon approval by the IAMRA Board of Directors. We reserve the right to refuse adoptors. IAMRA serves Illinois and portions of some bordering states.

Each Alaskan Malamute has a modest
adoption fee.

Our dogs are temperament tested. We can give you information about the dogs likes and dislikes, level of alpha behavior, and level of socialization and training.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
