CHAAMP is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to rescuing Malamutes from dog pounds, kill shelters, neglected homes, and other unfortunate situations. We have been around since the 1990's. We serve DC, MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA, WV, and offer virtual support to anyone in need. CHAAMP runs on 100% volunteer power!  Join us, there are so many ways to contribute.


Volunteer, Foster, Adopt, Donate, Share on social media

 CHAAMP's goal is to rescue Malamutes and find each a loving home that meets both the dog and family's lifestyle. We practice and advocate the use of rewards based positive reinforcement techniques to communicate what we wish for them to do. We offer Malamutes a choice to engage with us when they are ready as we develop mutual trust.


"Choice and willing participation are key to building confidence."

While Malamutes are waiting to be adopted, we provide enrichment (mental stimulation, sniffing, and chewing outlets), we go hiking, and depending on the Malamute we go shopping at dog-friendly stores.
