We're glad you stopped by to check out our Mallies in need of their "furever" homes! Moonsong Malamute Rescue is a non-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to assisting Alaskan Malamutes and their owners when in crisis throughout the Intermountain West.

How We Help

Moonsong Malamute Rescue (MMR) offers educational material about the Alaskan Malamute breed, can assist in resolving containment issues, is able to help an owner with appropriately re-homing their Malamute when necessary, and can provide behavioral issues support in the form of referrals to trainers and other more experienced Malamute owners. We also have quite an extensive list of resources and links on our Learn About Mals page.

We are affiliated with the Alaskan Malamute Assistance League (AMAL), which is the national rescue organization recognized by the Alaskan Malamute Club of America. As an affiliate to AMAL, MMR operates under AMAL's code of ethics.

Donated funds are primarily used to help care for Malamutes with adoptable personalities that we have rescued from shelters, or who have been seized by authorities after having been abandoned, neglected, or abused. You can read all about adopting a Malamute from us HERE.

MMR is not a shelter or humane society. We foster our dogs from our homes. We are growing, and we need foster homes and volunteers to help care for our charges, so if you would like to help with MMR's efforts, please see our Foster and Volunteer sections.
