2017 Chairperson Rescue Showcase

Over 150 Malamutes seized near Helena, Montana, 10/2011. The breeder, Mike Chilinski, is convicted of cruelty and neglect, 10/2012. The dogs have been released, transported to rescue groups nationwide and Mal Village closed 2/2013. Read the full archived story here.

Update as of 5/12/16 - All but one of the Alaskan Malamutes from this huge seizure have been placed in loving homes!

TABITHA - Adult Female - Tabitha, a petite Malamute, is a shy girl who will need to be the only pet in the household. Full of spirit, Tabitha enjoys playing with her toys and running in a secure, fenced yard. If you have the time and patience to help Tabitha over her shyness, she will be a loyal companion for you.
COLT - Young Male - Colt is an adorable little guy! Colt is high energy and even likes to use his back legs to climb. He likes to walk on leash and jumps up a lot! He has a mole above his left eye and the tip of his fuzzy right ear is missing - but that makes him more cute!

PALINKAS - Adult Female - Painfully shy, Palinkas will hide from strangers if she can. If she recognizes you, she'll be a little less scared, and after you've spent a few weeks with her she'll show little bouts of excitement and playfulness. She enjoys being with other dogs and having other dogs around helps build Palinkas' confidence.

Palinkas is in rescue with Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Please contact them at Visit their Web Site.
