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.

The Jazzies are here!


Jazz up your pooch with these colorful Jazzies Collar Sleeves! As a fundraiser for Moonsong, you can order your Jazzies here for $15 each plus $3 postage. Specify a general color and let our creative volunteer seamstress, Stacie, come up with a unique creation just for your dog! Bow ties for the boys and rosettes for the girls. Small, medium and large sizes available. Check out the samples of Jazzies in the Photo Gallery.

Why not try fostering?

Moonsong needs foster homes! It's the only way we can save Mals in kill shelters and other desperate situations. Can you help? Get approved to foster or adopt any of our dogs by filling out our online foster application here and our adoption application here. We also need volunteers to help with dogs in boarding that need to be walked, groomed and get some attention. Please contact us if you can help with them! rescue@moonsongmals.org
