All of Washington State and most of Oregon. We occasionally place dogs to homes in Idaho and Montana IF Malamute Rescues in those states do not have an animal in rescue available.
Go to www.wamal.com to complete an online application. Note: We are not accepting applications from households with cats.
If your application is accepted, a volunteer will contact you to set up a virtual home visit.
You will be notified if your application is approved and we begin matching you to dogs to meet.
We work with adopters to find a suitable match for their situation.
Pay the adoption fee at this time.
WAMAL was formed in 1998 to help with Malamute Rescue in the greater NorthWest area to cover rescue needs outside of the scope of Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue by Cindy Neely. Since that time we have rescued on average between 70 and 100 Malamutes a year and have rescued hundreds to date. While none of this would have originally happened without a small few, it's the numerous (but sometimes still too few) volunteers that make rescue happen. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and locations. Most are already overworked and too busy in their personal lives to start, but donating their time to rescue truly is what makes it possible to save the lives of this gentle and loving working breed... our Mals. The pride (and pain) of our lives.
WAMAL is strictly internet based. Most of all our correspondence will be via email, typically during the odd hours of the night that our volunteers are able to donate time. The dogs in our rescue are taken into the homes and lives of our volunteers, there is no shelter to visit. There is no phone number to call. We are sorry for this, but with over 200 volunteers and over 100 dogs a year, there just is not an easy way to coordinate a statewide rescue other than through email.
