My story

Interested in adopting? See our adoption process.



KANGA  thrives on adventure and would love an active adopter who will take him on adventures and give him plenty of play time!

Kanga is a loyal guy and will be a great companion for someone. He also LOVES the snow! His number one favorite activity (even more than walks and treats!) is going for car rides! He loves feeling the wind in his face through an open window (car surfing). Kanga is incredibly observant and curious.

Kanga’s comfort with people has grown significantly while in rescue. He does need a little time to build trust, but eventually he will follow you around and give you kisses! He is also quite affectionate and loyal to those he bonds with.

Kanga has excellent house manners and is happy to chill on his bed or lay beside you as you work. He has basic training and knows: sit, down, come, get it, stay, and release and is ready for the next level of training. He is very treat motivated and responds well to a clicker.

Kanga just needs to know you can be counted on to pay attention to his physical cues when he’s feeling overwhelmed. Kanga would do best in a home setting with a secure yard and would prefer to be your only pet. He might do well with savvy teens as long as they are aware of Kanga’s “dog language” and can give him space when he needs it. 

Are you the active, patient, forever home that Kanga is seeking?

Additional adoption info

We ask for a minimum adoption donation of $400 which is tax deductible as we are a federally approved 501(c)3 charity. Our adoption contracts can be viewed online at: http://www.wamal.com/docs/WAMALAdoptionAgreement.pdf

We have fencing and/or kennel requirements as malamutes can not be trusted to not roam.

We are looking for forever homes for our rescue dogs, and homechecks will be performed for all adopters, no exceptions. We love these dogs, and want what is best for them, we assume our adopters would want the same. Plus, the homecheck lets everyone meet each other, get to ask and answer questions, and make sure we match the right dog for the right family for that perfect match that will last a lifetime!

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.

More about this rescue

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.
