Texas Alaskan Malamute Rescue Association...
...is a 501(c)3 charity and nonprofit breed assistance, rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and education organization. We provide state and local welfare assistance for Alaskan Malamutes and their owners. TAMR receives no government funding and relies solely on private donations, public support, and our special events proceeds to help rescued Malamutes, companion animals, and pet owners.
Our organization is dedicated to the welfare and protection of all Alaskan Malamutes. It consists of a network of people, all volunteers, who love this breed and who are committed to ensuring that every deserving Malamute will have a good home. We provide rehabilitative and foster care homes for rescued Alaskan Malamutes, assist people who wish to own a good dog, and help Alaskan Malamutes find permanent loving homes.
TAMR is a state affiliate and charter member of the Alaskan Malamute Assistance League (AMAL), a 501(c)3 nonprofit and the national Alaskan Malamute rescue assistance organization sanctioned by the Alaskan Malamute Club of America (AMCA).
Who are TAMR's volunteer members?
Our members come from all walks of life and various backgrounds. They all have been active in the breed from several years to several decades. Some are breed club members and are active in working or showing Alaskan Malamutes. Others are concerned citizens who enjoy their Malamutes as family pets and companions. What we all have in common is the love of our dogs and the Alaskan Malamute.
What about TAMR's Alaskan Malamutes?
Our Alaskan Malamutes come to us though various sources. They are owner or Good Samaritan turn-ins, shelter rescues, and occasionally from puppy mill closures. Some of our Malamutes come to us with registration papers, or are eligible for AKC ILP cerification. All of these Alaskan malamutes deserve a second chance at a good life.
All our dogs are health and temperament screened. They are spayed or neutered, treated for any illness or health problems, heartworm tested and given preventative, and fully vaccinated before placement into their new homes. Most Malamutes are also microchipped and we recommend this ID method for any dog, in addition to collar tags.
What about TAMR's Adopters and Fosters?
Our adoption homes are primarily from Texas, although we may adopt throughout the United States. (Restrictions and additional fees apply.) The adopters vary from retirees to students, athletic to laid back, self-employed to corporate types or blue-collar workers. They come from different financial, educational, cultural, and employment backgrounds. We treat all of our adopters equally and seek to match our Malamutes with the best home possible. How to adopt a dog from TAMR.
Our foster care homes are local individuals and families who wish to help Alaskan Malamutes. Their backgrounds vary as much as our adopters, but most are prior or current Malamute owners who love and understand the breed. Foster care is important to giving a dog as stable and normal home life as possible before adoption, and fosters act as ongoing evaluators for dogs in their care. How to become a Foster Care Home.
How Can I Help the Malamutes and TAMR?
TAMR relies on private donations, public support, rescue dog sponsors, and special events proceeds to help rescue Malamutes and to assist companion dogs or their owners.
If you wish to become involved in Malamute rescue, please contact us for the many ways you can be of assistance. You may choose to home foster or financially sponsor individual dogs. You can volunteer to help transport, do home checks, answer phones or screen ads, help with training or socialization, assist at events, walk dogs, etc. Every effort helps rescue and it is often as simple as donating a little of your time!
How Can I Find Help for an Alaskan Malamute?

We take in new Malamutes on a space available basis and provide courtesy listings for lost/found dogs, shelters and other rescue groups, and owners rehoming their companion.
