Adopt Foxy and Tango

TANGO is searching for the perfect home with his bonded sister  "Foxy" Foxtrot.

Tango has the  typical husky personality.  They do all the typical things huskies do, but at much less the intensity most huskies do. Breed familiar adopters are preferred, huskies are not for beginners but Tango and Foxy would be considered oddly well behaved for huskies. Tango and Foxy are incredibly affectionate and cuddly.  Tango and Foxy  lived with children their entire lives and do quite wonderfully with them. Above toddler age children would be best  due to their size. 

NO cats or small dogs.

Their exercise needs are relatively low, but they do prefer at least a small yard to lounge outside in. Foxy and Tango are crate trained as well.

They are insured through Embrace Pet insurance, and the policy can be transferred to new owners. Tango has congenital hip dysplasia and has had one hip surgery. Due to this, extensive exercise isn't necessary or suggested. 

Home check and application required.

Preferably adopting Tango and Foxy out local to Tacoma area to make home visit and transferring them a little simpler.

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:

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!

Go meet their pets

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.
