American Maltese Association Rescue
American Maltese Association Rescue is a 501c3 organization dedicated to saving the unlucky Maltese.
We see Maltese who have been neglected, abused, and abandoned. They come to us from shelters, as owner surrenders, as lost dogs found along busy highways or city streets, hoarder homes, and puppy mills. They come to us with broken bones, infected eyes, dangerous heart conditions, severe emotional issues, teeth so rotten their jaw bones are deteriorated, emaciation or excessive weight, nervous system disorders, cancer, other horrible diseases, internal infections, and more. What should be a beautiful white flowing coat, has turned into filthy, severe matting, so bad that a few could barely walk, or see, or perform bodily functions. Some have died in our arms. Many, many more have been saved.
AMAR doesn’t use a sanctuary. We operate entirely with foster homes, where these dogs are welcomed, cleaned-up, treated for their medical conditions, trained, and most of all loved, until they are healthy enough to find their forever homes.
And AMAR doesn’t have a single paid employee. Everyone at AMAR is a volunteer, including all our foster homes across the nation. AMAR functions purely with donated funds, and ALL the money goes to help the dogs in our care.
There is no shortage of Maltese needing help, and there is no shortage of homes to adopt them. The missing parts of the equation are the foster homes and donations. Can you help us? Become a foster home and save their lives. If you can’t foster, please make a donation to save their lives.”
