Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

With the large number of homeless Maltese and Maltese mix dogs in Southern California, Maltese Rescue predominately accepts dogs in this geographical area. Our dogs come from shelters and owners unable to care for their Maltese.

About Our Rescue Group:

Maltese Rescue is totally staffed by all volunteers who are committed to helping homeless Maltese secure a loving new home. Our coordinators and most of our foster care providers have previous experience working with a variety of rescue groups.

Our committment is to help each rescue dog accepted secure a loving, forever home.

Our Adoption Process:

Every rescue dog is examined by a veterinarian, neutered or spayed if intact, vaccines provided, a microchip inserted, and dental care provided, if needed. All Maltese Rescue dogs are provided loving care in preapproved foster homes to help the rescue dog with socialization and training.
When a rescue Maltese is ready adoption, each dog is listed on www.petfinder.com and www.adopt-a-pet.com

Prospective adoptive persons are required to submit an adoption application, undergo a personal interview, supply references, and complete a home evaluation to determine if the home provides a safe environment for a Maltese prior to approving an adoption.

An adoption fee is paid at the time of adoption. Adoption fees and donations are the sole financial source for payment of medical care for all of our rescue dogs.

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.
