CHAAMP Malamutes are fostered in private homes over our rescue territory or housed in our kennel. We are always in need of foster homes. Some Malamutes need extra assistance transitioning into a home or do not do well in a kennel environment.
A foster home provides a peaceful environment post-surgery or during the deworming process. There are many reasons to foster. We also foster-to-adopt and provide you with training and support. Please submit an application and review "Decompress for Success" by Dog Latin Dog Training. We also highly recommend that you sign up for a virtual webinar from Your Dog's Friend, "Advice for Adopters/Fosters"
Rescue & Care
Malamutes are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and seen by a vet. Our heartworm-positive Malamutes receive treatment and are retested 3-8 months later. We provide medical records to adopters. Training is a contract requirement. We will work with you to provide options that meet your family's needs.
A Malamute's personality may change once they feel comfortable in a new home. It is important to have a routine, provide a safe place, enrichment, and a spa-like environment to help them decompress.
Adoption fees help cover vet and medical costs. Puppy fees are higher because they require more vet visits for vaccines.
~Adult dogs (two-seven years old): $275.00
~Older dogs (eight years old or over): $100.00
~Puppies (6 months - 1 year): $350.00
~Puppies (under 6 months): $375.00
Please complete an application to initiate the adoption and/or foster process. The information provided helps us find a suitable match for your lifestyle. Next, we will schedule a home visit and get to know you. When we have a good match, we will schedule a meet and greet. Upon arrival, your family will receive a training session before meeting the Malamutes.
Support & Follow up
Bringing a Malamute home is just the beginning! When you foster, foster-to-adopt, or adopt you become part of the CHAAMP Family. We love to hear pup dates, celebrate milestones, and share your grief with the CHAAMP Family when it is time for a beloved Malamute to cross the Rainbow Bridge.
We do our best to match your Malamute with your lifestyle. Please reach out to us with questions. We have experience and can offer tips. Sometimes it isn't a good match and CHAAMP will gladly receive her/him. If you can no longer care for your CHAAMP Malamute, we can offer assistance and/or gladly receive him/her.
Rescue does not mean damaged,
it means they have been let down by humans.
We owe it to these majestic trusting furry companions to learn how to help them by educating ourselves.
Let's learn together!
