save a life - adopt a maltese rescue dog from the animal shelter


* If you have a Maltese dog or Maltese puppy you can no longer care for please check with your local rescue shelter to be sure they have a "no-kill" policy prior to releasing the dog to them. If they euthanize unwanted dogs after a certain period of time, please find another rescue shelter or Maltese rescue that is "no-kill".

If you are looking to adopt a Maltese, check with the local shelters and maltese rescue as well as the ones within driving distance from you. You would be surprised as to how many Maltese get adopted from the public shelters.

If you contact a breed rescue group, be sure to find out as much as you can about the Maltese rescue group, how it cares for its Maltese rescue dogs, how it decides which Maltese rescues are adoptable, and what other adoption and post-adoption services are available.

If you are looking for a Maltese rescue group that can help you with both adoptions and sheltering a homeless Maltese, you might want to start by contacting Mary Palmer at (262) 633-9371 or email to Northcentral Maltese Rescue Inc. malteserescue@hotmail.com.
