Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We are a national breed (Maltese) nonprofit rescue organization. Most of our active fosters and coordinators reside in Southern California and the Pacific Northwest.
American Maltese Rescue started in 1995 with an all volunteer organization that continues today as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit. We accept Maltese as owner surrenders or as shelter dogs needing a new home. All of our dogs are examined by a vet, spayed or neutered, dental care provided if needed, a microchip is inserted, shots provided, and any vet recommended medical care. All of our dogs reside in foster homes where they are socialized and treated as loving pets until adopted.
Our Adoption Process:
The first step in our adoption process is for the potential adoptive person to submit an Application to Adopt which is available on our website. A telephone interview is conducted and references are checked. A home visit is performed prior to the adoption to determine a safe environment for a rescue Maltese. An appointment is scheduled for the interested family to meet the rescue dog. If all parties agree that the adoptive family and rescue dog are good match, then the adoption is finalized with the payment of the adoption fee. All medical records and shot records are given to the adoptive family
