NORTHERN LIGHTS SLED DOG RESCUE. was founded in January, 2004. We are a group of like-minded rescuers whose leadership came from different rescue backgrounds with a shared vision of “keeping it about the dogs”. This simple philosophy has guided the rescue through its 14 years of existence and has kept operations clean, simple, and always in service of that ultimate goal.
We are proud affiliates of the Alaskan Malamute Assistance League, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization recognized by the national breed club, the Alaskan Malamute Club of America
NORTHERN LIGHTS SLED DOG RESCUE is the largest northern breed rescue in the Great Lakes region, saving dogs from euthanasia from shelters in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky
OUR MISSION is to advocate for and/or rescue stray, abandoned, placed or abused dogs; in particular, northern breed dogs facing euthanasia in Midwest/Great Lakes region shelters. Our goal is to place Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, and northern breed mixes in loving, experienced, and secure homes with people who understand and celebrate the unique characteristics of their breeds.
ALL OF OUR SIBERIAN HUSKIES, ALASKAN MALAMUTES AND NORTHERN BREED MIXES are adopted to homes that are thoroughly screened and investigated to ensure the best possible match for each individual dog in terms of the new guardian's experience, lifestyle and home environment.
OUR ADOPTION PROCESS consists of a thorough screening including an application including complete personal reference checks, vet references, and a home visit. All foster dogs placed for adoption are microchipped, spayed or neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, wormed, heartworm-tested, and on heartworm preventative. All dogs are given thorough veterinary exams/assessments and are treated for known conditions. In the case of special needs dogs, our philosophy is FULL DISCLOSURE.
