Metropolitan Maltese Rescue

Our Pet List

Metropolitan Maltese Rescue is a nonprofit corporation (501(c)3), dedicated to placing homeless Maltese and Maltese-mixes in loving, responsible, permanent homes. Our vision is to be an active partner of a no-kill community where there are no homeless pets.

Because our Maltese have been in foster care, we are able to evaluate their temperaments and let you know whether a dog is right for your home and lifestyle. All our dogs are vet-checked, spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations prior to placement. We operate solely within the NYC tri-state area. Metropolitan Maltese Rescue is a proud participant in the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals.
