Rescue and Care

CHAAMP spays or neuters its Malamutes before adopting them out. Each Mal also receives medical care, including vaccines and de-worming. Our heartworm-positive Mals receive treatment and will be retested 3-8 months later. We believe in transparency and will tell you everything we know—good and bad—about our Mal’s health (mental and physical), behavior, and personality.


CHAAMP does not have a shelter. All our dogs are kenneled or fostered in private homes over our rescue territory: Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Washington DC. In addition to getting Malamutes safe, providing vet care and love, then finding them suitable homes, we offer training tips, behavioral information, and support to Malamute owners who want to keep their dogs but need help.  UPDATE! We are in the process of building our own shelter.


The adoption fee is usually $275.00. If you adopt one of our older dogs (eight years old or over) or a dog whom we know to not be in good health, the adoption fee is $100.00. Puppies under 6 months old are $375.00. Puppies between 6 months and 1 year are $350.00.

Support & Follow up

Our interest in our Malamutes doesn't end with their adoption. We consider these dogs a part of our "family". We are available for you to talk with or to ask us any questions you may have. And if you ever are in a position where you can no longer keep the dog, we will always take it back.
