MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue is an organization dedicated to the
caring and placement of Siberian Husky and Husky mix dogs,
into loving permanent homes through adoption and referral services.
MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue was founded in 2000 by Pat McDevitt. MaPaw is an entirely volunteer based organization consisting of a volunteer network who generously provide foster care to Siberian Huskies and Husky mix dogs in need of finding permanent new homes. Since 2010, our base operation has been located in Berks County, PA, where we have a 10 dog kennel that also houses MaPaw dogs in wait of forever homes.
We would love to consider you for adoption or fostering if you’re within a 100 mile radius of our main office in Boyertown, PA. We depend completely upon the assistance of volunteers in our Pennsylvania region to provide transport and support for our adoptions before, during, and even after a dog comes to live with you. If you are outside of our adoption area, please visit siberianrescue.com ~ petfinder.com ~ adopt-a-pet.com to locate a group near you. And remember to check with your local shelters, many Siberians end up there!
Upon arrival, all MaPaw dogs are given individual attention that allows us to learn about their personalities and needs. This knowledge helps us to place dogs in homes that are best suited for them, which results in rewarding and lasting relationships.
*** MaPaw’s kennel hours are by appointment only. Please call the office at 610-369-0055 to set up a time for you to meet the dogs.***
Here are the steps to take if you’d like to adopt from MaPaw:
If you are a first time Siberian Husky adopter, please do some research to learn about their somewhat challenging (yet endearing) traits. Learn more about Siberian’s here to find out if the breed’s unique characteristics are a match for your family and lifestyle. If you are already familiar with the breed and want to see who’s available, go to Our Available Dogs.
Next, fill out MaPaw’s online adoption application. No fee is required to apply. Be sure to fill out the application completely, providing accurate phone numbers for each reference. We check all references! Let your references know that we will be calling so that your application can be completed without delay. Please call your vet and authorize them to speak with us since they are unable to release information without your consent (which would delay your application). We will be verifying that your current pets have been cared for appropriately and are up to date on required vaccinations.
When your application has been processed, an adoption coordinator will contact you to discuss the MaPaw dog(s) you’re interested in, as well as other MaPaw dogs that might work for you. An appointment to visit our kennels will be scheduled so that you, your family, and your pets can meet and help you choose your new friend. Once your dog has been selected and everyone is happy, we will arrange for your adoption. An adoption coordinator will bring the dog to your home at which time a home check will be completed. We will check your yard and fence to be sure that it’s sufficient to keep your new canine friend safely contained. If everything looks right, you will complete an adoption contract and your new friend will be in his/her forever home with you!
MaPaw adoption fees cover spay/neuter procedures, all vaccinations, and a microchip.
MaPaw Adoption Fees are as follows:
• Dogs up to 6 months of age: $400 plus a $300 spay/neuter deposit which will be returned upon veterinary verification.
• Dogs 6 months to 8 years: $325
• Seniors (9 years and up): $200
• Special needs: at the discretion of the MaPaw Board of Directors
Applications submitted prior to March 1, 2015 will pay MaPaw’s previous adoption fee of $275
Due to Siberian Husky’s high prey drive, we do not place them in homes with cats or other smaller pets.
