Who We Are

We're glad you stopped by to check out our Mallies in need of their "furever" homes! We are now a bona fide, federally recognized non-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to assisting Alaskan Malamutes and their owners when in crisis throughout the Intermountain West. Please be aware that Moonsong Malamute Rescue (MMR) is not a shelter or humane society. 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.

We offer educational material about the Alaskan Malamute breed, can assist in resolving containment issues, are able to help an owner with appropriately re-homing their Malamute when necessary, and provide behavioral issues support in the form of referrals to trainers and other more experienced Malamute owners. These funds are also used to help care for Malamutes with adoptable personalities who have been pulled from shelters, or who have been seized by authorities after having been abandoned, neglected, or abused.

Please note that it is our policy to only adopt out to applicants from Idaho or our neighboring states of Montana, Wyoming, and Nevada, where no Malamute rescue organization is yet established. We also work very closely with Arctic Breeds Rescue in Utah and will adopt out to that state as well. If you are not within these 5 states, then please contact the Malamute rescue in your state where there are undoubtedly many rescue Mals in need of homes. Please see a listing of affiliate rescues here.

Our Featured Malamute!

Hello there! My name is Kaya, Princess Kaya to my loyal subjects. I am a 7 year old, very mellow female looking for my fur-ever kingdom. I am a people loving Mal who would prefer being with humans than other dogs. I live for walks where I can put my nose to good use reading the daily 'doggy newspapers'. Inside, I am quiet and content to lay on my bed around my humans. I walk great on a leash, know many basic commands, am house trained, don't get on the furniture (very often) and don't 'counter surf'. I don't mind sleeping in a crate as long as I know my people are close by. I love tummy rubs and will ask for one by playing 'patty-cake' with you.

Kaya is a wonderfully sweet and mellow Mal. She does have some separation anxieties when left alone outside or in her crate. She is also afraid of loud noises like thunder or gun shots. Because of these reasons, a home with a family member who is there all the time, or one where she can go to work with a family member, would be best for her. She has interacted with our other foster and they get along great. She bonded with us easily and is very loving and friendly. She is cautious when meeting new people but warms up to be her usual friendly self. She is good around older children but may not tolerate the tugging and pulling of the younger ones. She has the normal strong prey drive and would not be good around smaller animals. Kaya is probably one of the sweetest natured dogs I have ever been around and I know she will make a wonderful companion to the right adopter.

Volunteering and Donations

Also be aware that in addition to the always welcome cash donation, we are very pleased to accept donations of large dog equipment to help house our charges, and are happy to accept other items of value that can be raffled or auctioned to benefit our rescue efforts.
