ABMR originated as a committee within the national breed club- American Belgian Malinois Club. It operated as a committee for many years and at first rescued roughly 10 - 12 malinois a year. At that time the breed was still rather obscure and not receiving a lot of public attention.
ABMR, a 501c3 non-profit, is a breed specific rescue organization. With an all volunteer staff we work diligently to rehabilitate and provide a second chance for malinois in need. Our dogs are first placed in foster homes where they receive necessary vetting and plenty of TLC. Our foster homes spend a great deal of time socializing and training the malinois in their care. It is during foster care that they are spayed or neutered, brought up to date on their shots, and microchipped.
ABMR is completely funded by donations. By far our biggest expenses are veterinary care and boarding so our biggest need is for foster homes and monetary donations. Typically donations to 501c3 organizations are tax deductible, check with your tax advisor to be sure.
The mission of the American Belgian Malinois, Inc (ABMR, Inc) is to act on behalf of homeless or unwanted purebred Belgian Malinois dogs. ABMR, Inc fulfills its mission of service by securing qualified assessment, care, fostering, medical treatment, rehabilitation, and permanent loving homes for Belgian Malinois dogs and puppies that are surrendered, impounded, neglected, abused, or discarded.
If you know of a Belgian Malinois in need of assistance, or you have a Malinois that you want to place with ABMR please see our Contact Us page and write to the coordinator nearest to you.
