About Arctic Rescue

Our Mission

Our Mission Statement:
"Harnessing Passion"

Arctic Breeds Rescue has been rescuing animals in Utah and the surrounding states for over 20 years. We specialize in rescuing Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes. Many of the dogs we take into rescue are deemed "unadoptable" by shelters or local government and have no other options other than to come to a breed specific rescue who can find them a home where they can be set up to succeed.

Harnessing passion is enabling once caged, rescue dogs to take part in the pure joy of running through the forest, atop a dazzling layer of magical snow...glancing into the eyes of an injured or neglected dog only to see stoic perseverance gazing back and saying “yes we will help you”...laughing at the unabashed defiance of a senior dog who runs off down the trail with all of the independence that defines their breeds... seeing the gratitude of dogs who are just happy to finally be understood...and it is the melting of your heart to see a once homeless dog on a comfortable bed surrounded by a family who loves them and whom will never let them be homeless again.

We are an individual rescue group with a very small network of volunteers and have been on our own for most of our rescue career. We work with local shelters and with the assistance of the National Siberian Husky Rescue. We do not have a centralized public kennel, all dogs in the rescue are spread among our network of volunteer foster homes.


Appointments are needed to meet each individual dog. Because we operate primarily via foster homes, our resources and space are limited. We are always looking for volunteers and families willing to foster dogs to help us save more of these wonderful creatures. We are happy to assist in any way we can with the rescue of these beautiful animals.
