Our purpose is to:
- Rescue, rehabilitate, and appropriately rehome Arctic breed dogs within Australia.
- Develop strong relationships with shelters and pounds to improve outcomes for Arctic breeds entering these facilities.
- Provide education, assistance and advice to the general public with regard to specific Arctic breed traits and requirements.
- Promote responsible companion animal ownership.
The team at Arctic Rescue Victoria Inc have been involved in dog rescue for a number of years. Up until a few years ago we were operating as the Victorian branch of Alaskan Malamute Rehoming Aid Australia (AMRAA). While we were a part of AMRAA, we were seeing an increasing need for us to help with the foster and adoption of other arctic breeds.
So after giving it a lot of thought, Arctic Rescue Victoria (ARV) was formed, with the goal to rescue and rehome all large arctic breed dogs (including Huskies, Malamutes, Samoyeds and Akitas) and allow us to better serve the needs of these dogs we love.
