Contact the Maltese Rescue
Maltese Rescue provides free assistance for all Maltese and cross-Maltese breeds needing to be re-homed in South Africa. They make use of foster homes and provide adoption to approved individuals who have the resources and want to give a home to a dog in need.
Our aim is to keep Maltese out of any situation where they would have to be in a kennel cage or away from human contact. Maltese who go from one home to another have a much less chance of becoming traumatized and will transition much better in their new home.
Don't hold off the surrender too long.
You could notify trusted friends, relatives, neighbours, and co-workers that you need to find a new home for your Maltese. This type of networking may have very positive results, but ultimately you should let us know as soon as possible. This will allow all matters related to adoption etc. to be commutable and organized.
Completing a 'Find your Maltese a home' form.
Our 'surrender' or 'Find your Maltese a home' form is intended to gather the all needed information. No one knows your Maltese better than you do. As his or her owner, you know what they like, dislike, interests, and temperament better than anyone else.
There may of course be certain traits about your dog that you may be reluctant to share, however, we request Please share this with us as honestly and detailed as possible.
