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.

About Our Rescue Group:

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

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.
