Maltese Club – RESCUE

The Maltese Club is fortunate to have two very experienced Rescue Officers, Val Blore-Northern Region and Lee Studholme – Southern Region.

The role of the rescue officers is to re-home, with minimum disruption to both past owners and future owners, and most important of all, to the little Maltese who through no fault of their own are in need of help.

Maltese Rescue is available to assist in helping owners who may find themselves having to rehome their pet maltese due to a change in circumstances or ill health.   Also in cases of neglect, dogs can be required to be taken in via local authority agents or other welfare charities.

Maltese rescue relies entirely on donations to fund it’s continued work, in order to cover veterinary bills, food etc.

Some Maltese may require to stay with us for sometime until they are ready for their new homes due to medical or emotional needs and this does incur costs.

We make no charge for the care and love given to these dogs or for using this service, but we are always grateful for donations made to our rescue fund.


To adopt one of our rescued Maltese you will required to sign an Adoption Contract and agree to our code of ethics – donation upon request. The Maltese Club have held many “Fun Days” in aid of Welfare and Rescue and all money goes to funding medical treatment. This event is usually held in July and all owners of rescued dogs and everyone else is very welcome to come and enjoy the races, fancy dress competitions and all the other fun filled activities. For further information keep an eye on the website. Please don’t expect you can just pickup a Rescue Maltese. If you feel you could help and give the love and care required you would need to contact The Maltese Club Rescue and maybe go onto a waiting list. Contact details below.
