AMCA 2017 National Specialty Logo

The 2018 National Specialty Show is scheduled for October 28 until November 2, is hosted by the Southern Region and is being held at Doubletree, by Hilton at Orlando at SeaWorld Resort, in Orlando, Florida. The Show Chair is Barbara Salvadore and the Assistant Show Chairs are Kymm & Roger Bass. Hotel reservations are first come, first serve so be sure to make your plans early! When placing hotel reservations, be sure to use “AMC 2018” code for the group rate!

Unfortunately, AMAL did not have any affiliates with valid adopters who would travel
to the show. As a result, there will not be a Rescue Showcase event this year. We
still want to honor those affiliates who worked so hard to provide rescue dogs loving
homes and families, helped them gain confidence and security, and provided
them with medical care, affection and regular exercise. Affiliates have saved these
dogs’ lives, promoted their well-being, and given them a second chance. AMAL will
highlight some affiliate rescue activities over the past year in lieu of the showcase.

Once again AMAL is doing its wine sale. You can purchase either a two bottle pack or a 12 bottle case. A portion of the proceeds goes to AMAL so this is a great way to help rescue… especially if you like wine!

Please also begin thinking of unique Alaskan and malamute-related items that will sell well at the AMAL Booth and at the AMCA Auction.
Other years’ top selling items have been T-shirts, sweatshirts, sledding or weight pull equipment, historical breed activities and
events, malamute images on gift items, unique functional items with malamute decoration, and stuffed animals (dark eyes preferred)
to name a few. With more and more international attendees, we need several items that pack well in a suitcase!

Send your Sales and Auction donations to AMAL for arrival between September 26 and October 24:
