The general public sees Maltese dogs as the dog-snobs of the world, status symbols, with
beautiful white flowing coats, owned by the elite.  But did you know that many aren’t that
lucky?
American Maltese Association Rescue is a 501c3 organization dedicated to saving the
unlucky Maltese.
We see Maltese who have been neglected, abused, and abandoned.  They come to us from
shelters, as owner surrenders, as lost dogs found along busy highways or city streets,
hoarder homes, and puppy mills.  They come to us with broken bones, infected eyes,
dangerous heart conditions, severe emotional issues, teeth so rotten their jaw bones are
deteriorated, emaciation or excessive weight, nervous system disorders, cancer, other
horrible diseases, internal infections, and more.  What should be a beautiful white flowing
coat, has turned into filthy, severe matting, so bad that a few could barely walk, or see, or
perform bodily functions.  Some have died in our arms.  Many, many more have been
saved.
AMAR doesn’t use a sanctuary.  We operate entirely with foster homes, where these dogs
are welcomed, cleaned-up, treated for their medical conditions, trained, and most of all
loved, until they are healthy enough to find their forever homes.
And AMAR doesn’t have a single paid employee.  Everyone at AMAR is a volunteer,
including all our foster homes across the nation.  AMAR functions purely with donated
funds, and ALL the money goes to help the dogs in our care.

There is no shortage of Maltese needing help, and there is no shortage of homes to adopt
them.  The missing parts of the equation are the foster homes and donations.  Can you help
us?  Become a foster home and save their lives.  If you can’t foster, please make a donation
to save their lives.”

DONATIONS NEEDED NOW!
AMAR operates strictly on donations from the public.  100% of all rescued Maltese need medical attention of some kind; some much more than others.  AMAR pays for all these Vet expenses prior to putting a dog up for adoption, and Adoption Fees rarely cover a dog’s expenses.  We need your help to continue saving these little innocents.  Please use this button to help them now??”

Our little AMAR Spokesdog is Chip - The Maltese Farm Dog.  He has his own Facebook page with almost 1500 followers.  Chip is one of our AMAR rescue dogs that ended up living on a small farm with cats, chickens, horses, fish, and 4 other dog siblings.  He says his goal is to show that not all Maltese are girls, nor are they just cutsie lap dogs.  He shows you what farm life is like for a little 7 lb dog.  Occasionally, he features AMAR foster dogs.   If you want a daily smile, that’s what his page is all about. 

You can follow him here https://www.facebook.com/Chip.TheMalteseFarmDog.   And tell your friends, if they want a daily smile too.

EDIE

Millions of people have been moved by the love
and devotion in this video. 

Did you know that is American Maltese Association Rescue saving that little dog, Edie?  When our AMAR representative, Bronwyne, saw that little dog, she recognized the potential. 
She enlisted the expertise of Eldad Hagar to help evaluate.
But that is not the end of the story.  Bronwyne fostered this little dog and named her Edie, after our National Director.  She went on to find a fabulous Forever Home, as shown in this follow-up video.
Now you can be a Sponsor for one, or more, of these dogs, providing part, or all, the financial needs, while our foster homes provide the care and love.  These dogs have the same needs as healthy dogs, and then some.  Many need special foods, physical therapy, special equipment, continuing medical and grooming, etc.  Sponsors can help with these expenses. 

Visit our Special Angels page, and underneath each of the Special Angel’s story there is a button you can use if you are interested in sponsoring that particular dog. 

Won’t you please sponsor a Special Angel today?

Can’t foster, but want to help AMAR?  Sponsor a Special Angel!

What is a Special Angel?  Our Special Angel are also known as Forever Fosters.  These are dogs saved by AMAR who, for a variety of reasons, cannot be put up for adoption.  They will remain foster dogs, under AMAR’s care, for the remainder of their lives.  These dogs usually have long term medical or emotional issues; for example, a blind dog, or a dog with doggie dementia, already familiar with their foster home, and it would be too stressful for them to relocate to another residence.
