American Maltese Association Rescue

Our Pet List

Who We Are

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.

There is no way to predict where and when Maltese may become available for adoption. The less specific the request, the quicker and more likely we are to have the perfect pet for you. Please keep an open mind and check our pet list on a regular basis as our list of Maltese available for adoption changes constantly.
