Owner Surrender
CHAAMP understands that sometimes life happens, and it is in the best interest of your pup to rehome him/her. This is an emotional time for you and especially your pup. We are experienced with Malamutes and can provide guidance for the next steps.

1st Step

Please reach out to your breeder first, there may be a clause in the contract that states the dog needs to go back to them. If they are reputable, they will accept the surrender or provide further assistance. 


2nd Step
Please complete an Owner Surrender Questionnaire. This provides valuable information about your pup. Similar to our adoption process, we want to get to know your dog. Some pups do not do well in a kennel environment or due to special needs a foster home is appropriate. Your pup is an individual and we want to do our best for him/her. Keep in mind we are all volunteers and have full time jobs to pay for our rescue work. We must streamline the process to maximize our efforts in helping the Malamute community. 


Please be patient with us and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you!

3rd Step

A volunteer will contact you to discuss your questionnaire and then we will schedule a home visit to meet you and your dog. We want to answer your questions and put you at ease about this emotional decision. If you wish to keep you dog, we can provide guidance on how to improve the circumstances. 

4th Step

We will get back to you and discuss various options available. 

5th Step

Before we can take in your precious pup, we will need to get your pup up to date with their vaccines.
