Review for Northcentral Maltese Rescue, Inc., Racine, WI, USA
This is a great group of dedicated volunteers, working to rescue at risk dogs, get them proper veterinary care, and place them into loving homes. Mary Palmer, the president, is the key to making this work, and puts in countless hours each week caring for the dogs, traveling to pick up at risk animals, arranging for foster homes, and properly checking on the integrity of the people who want to adopt. She will not place a dog in a home unless she is convinced it is the best place for the dog.
Each summner the group holds a two day Maltese Rescue picnic, where families who have adopted and fostered dogs bring them together for fun, learning, and sharing.
They also produce a beautiful calendar each year, and our Paisley, adopted from the Rescue 3 years ago, is pictured for June in the 2011 calendar.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
We adopted a dog from the Rescue 3 years ago and since then have worked with Mary and the other volunteers to help make this rescue group a success. We also fostered two adorable dogs until they could be adopted and brought another dog into our home for a short period.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find more volunteers, and encourage people who are not able to volunteer their time to make a financial donation. People across the country are needed who are willing to be foster parents of dogs awaiting adoption.
