Golden Years AMR started with an idea.........taking in senior Malamutes with nowhere else to go. Shirley Thomas already had a rescue Mal, Tucker. Then she took in Rio, a Shepherd/Mal mix. Next came Sheila a 9 year old female that was removed from a puppy mill in 1999. Shirley decided to formalize her kennels and start a real rescue to actually place dogs she took in. By October 2000 she was "in business" and took in Rusty, Lexi and Nanook. Carol met Shirley via Sheila and offered to help develop a web site so the dogs could be seen by more people. It wasn't long before Carol was in rescue with Shirley.

Older Malamutes can be a little harder to place sometimes. They may have a few health problems, or through no fault of their own, their owners decide they don't want the Malamute anymore. An adult dog is actually much easier to deal with. Most are already housetrained, they have developed their personalities, they have matured, and they are not nearly the work a puppy can be. Malamutes are living as long as 15 years now thanks to advances in vet care and food quality. An 8-10 year old dog may still have many more years left, and we try to find just the right home for them.

What started out as 5 outdoor kennels runs has now evolved into a nearly completed 10 run pole barn kennel facility. Golden Years has come a long way in just a few years!
