Where Your Purchase Helps Support Rescue!

Red Badge Dog Rescue Medal
Help Us – Volunteer

Coordinating the care and adoption of the Malamutes that Polaris helps requires an extraordinary amount of time and resources. We rely on our volunteers and donors to keep us running and give us the ability to help so many dogs.

It is a very rewarding experience to help a Husky in need -- seeing the bright eyes, happy Malamute smile, and wagging tail and knowing that you improved the life of that animal is an incredible feeling! If you are interested in joining Polaris Alaskan Malamute Rescue as a volunteer, please fill out our volunteer application form, and we will be in contact with you soon to discuss the ways in which you can help the Polaris dogs!

Also visit the donations page for additional ways in which you can help.

Ways in which you can volunteer:

  • Foster Homes – Foster a dog by opening your home and heart to a dog in need. If permanently adopting an Alaskan Malamute isn't for you, but you'd still like to help us, then consider being a foster parent for one of our rescue dogs until it is permanently adopted. Foster dogs need training, gentle discipline and love to prepare them for a forever home. Lack of foster space limits us in the number of dogs we are able to take in at any given time. By allowing us to temporarily place a Malamute with you, you save the life of an otherwise homeless dog. Some knowledge of the Malamute will be very helpful. These foster dogs do become a part of the foster family and should usually remain in that home until they are adopted by our organization. If you would like to help us by fostering a dog, please call us or fill out our Volunteer Application Form.
