Our Mission

Our Mission:

Texas Alaskan Malamute Rescue Association (TAMR) is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit and statewide assistance organization dedicated to the welfare of all Alaskan Malamutes, particularly those who are at risk of losing their health, home, or lives in Texas and surrounding areas.

Our Vision:

Our objectives are to improve the lives of Alaskan Malamutes by promoting responsible ownership, providing owner and individual support, rescuing and rehabilitating dogs in need, assisting dogs into new homes, providing emergency care and assistance, and by providing education services to the public. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every Alaskan Malamute has the home and quality of life which they deserve.
