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??”
Sponsor a Special Angel

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
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?

Our little AMAR Spokesdog is Chip - The
Maltese Farm Dog.  He has his own
Facebook page with over 2500 followers. 
Chip is one of our AMAR rescue dogs that
ended up living on a small farm with cats,
chickens, horses, fish, and 3 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
to enjoy a daily smile, follow Chip - The
Maltese Farm Dog.  That’s what his page is
all about.

You can follow him HERE.   And tell your
friends, if they want a daily smile too.

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.”

American Maltese Association Rescue
ATTENTION ALL MALTESE LOVERS! There's a very special event coming up and we wanted to share it with you. From May 21st through May 24th,the American Maltese Association Specialty will take place in Phoenix, AZ. It's a wonderful, fun-filled, annual, national gathering that includes grooming seminars, obedience and rally competitions and sweepstakes, where you'll see some of this county's most beautiful Maltese, compete. There's also a Rescue Parade, a White Excitement dinner, a luncheon and a banquet.

AMAR is so excited to be there and we'll have silent auction and live auction items to benefit our rescue. We could use additional items for these auctions. We'd love new or gently used dog items, as well as gift cards or certificates for products or services. Please get in touch with Leanne Sandmeyer at ls62amar@gmail.com if you have anything you can donate.

The Maltese Specialty has it's own FB page where you can find out about the schedule, registration and hotel discounts:   https://www.facebook.com/groups/253759894827919
