Balto sure has not had an easy life. He was picked up by Animal Control in June, missing most of his fur from Demodex mange. Thankfully Demodex is not contagious, however it’s very uncomfortable for the dog. By August treatment was completed and Balto was finally clear of mites. The secondary bacterial skin infection was cleared up as well. A big guy at 100 lbs, Balto is estimated to be about 7 years of age. He seems to be friendly with other dogs, although with his size, a large female companion would be best as he tends to overwhelm smaller dogs. Using an EZ (or Sensation) harness would help control when walking Balto as he does pull on leash. With love, healthy meals and exercise, Balto’s fur should grow back and he’ll be even more handsome. His adoption fee is $250. Please request an application from firstname.lastname@example.org
We are a group of dedicated volunteers saving the lives of Alaskan Malamutes. We pull Mals from shelters that euthanize, accept owner release Malamutes and help educate the public on the characteristics of Malamutes.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are all volunteers. Our dogs are with fosters or in boarding kennels. Arrangements are made to meet them by appointment once your application has been processed and your home visit completed.
Our Adoption Process...
We have an application which requires references, including a vet reference. If you rent, we require written permission from your Landlord allowing you to adopt a Malamute. Once we receive your application, it is processed and then we arrange a home visit. Upon completion, you are invited to meet the Mals. From you application we generally have a good idea of which dog suits you. Our adoption contract states that if something should happen, the dog is returned to us. Our adoption fee is $225 for an adult and higher for a puppy under one year. All of our Mals are healthy, up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, and heartworm negative.
