American Maltese Association Rescue is a national 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization staffed
entirely by dedicated volunteers caring for homeless Maltese and securing adoptive families. Maltese
come to rescue from many sources, animal shelters, death of the primary caretaker, people whose
health has changed, and those facing loss of home.
All AMA Rescue Maltese are cared for by approved foster families. Our available rescue dogs tend to
be located in areas of the country with active volunteers and available foster homes. More homeless
Maltese could be accepted if we had more foster families. Please consider this worthwhile experience.

A 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization
This is little Bella's story.
She was found wandering the streets of Bakersfield, California this past summer 2013. It was during the hottest weather, with 100 degree heat and she was hiding under porches, houses and anywhere to try to stay cool. She was matted so bad that she could hardly see or walk. A kind family took her in and got her to a vet to have her hair cut off and tend to her eyes and ears that all had infections. She was also very under weight and had obviously not been cared for most of her life.
Her rescuers took her home and where totally surprised when they came home from work two days after getting her and she had delivered two Maltese puppies.
Bella was a great mom and cared for her puppies and raised them until they were old enough to be adopted. At this point the family contacted AMA Rescue and asked if we could take Bella and care for her continuing medical needs. Bella had one eye that was smaller from birth and had no sight in it. It was constantly getting infected and the vets felt it should be removed. So Bella joined our foster family and had her spay and then a few months later had her eye removed.
Our wonderful foster family has a lovely daughter that fell in love with Bella and begged them to let her adopt Bella. Just seeing them together, you know this is a perfect match.
So Bella has gone from a poor street dog to a Princess and so very loved, as she deserves to be.
