Welcome to SHAMROQ

Siberian Husky and Alaskan Malamute Rescue of Queensland Inc. is dedicated to the rescue, care, welfare and rehoming of Northern breeds, including, but not limited to, Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies, in the State of Queensland.  We provide education and ongoing support of potential adopters as to the requirements of these special breeds.

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that all Northern breeds in Queensland are given the chance to live the life they deserve.  We are a DGR-endorsed, ACNC-registered non profit organisation run entirely by volunteers.

There are so many ways you can help save a life.  You can adopt, become a foster carer, make a tax-deductible donation, sponsor a dog, join our volunteer network, support us at our events or provide any of the items on our wish list.


So you've done your research and decided a Northern breed is for you?  Or are you one of the many who are already owned by one of these gorgeous dogs and find them to be like Tim Tam....you just can't stop at one?  


We are here to help you find your pawfect match! But you have to wonder...who's  rescuing who?

Adoption Services

Each member of the SHAMROQ team has been an adopter themselves.  We know first hand the excitement of welcoming a rescue dog into the family.  We also understand that you'll have questions or maybe concerns about fostering or adoption.

Our aim is to have things run as smoothly as possible, whether it be foster care or adoption that interests you.


For some dogs, their age and/or medical conditions mean that we provide their furrytail ending by keeping them close with us here for their twilight time.  We're honoured to provide these special dogs with palliative care, so when it's time for them to cross the Rainbow Bridge, they do so safe in the knowledge they were loved!

Twilight Sanctuary


Because SHAMROQ doesn't have our own kennels, we rely on foster carers to house our dogs while they are awaiting adoption.  Without more carers, the number of dogs we can help is limited.  We need you!  If you are in a position to foster a dog, please click the paw below to complete a Foster Carer Enquiry or click on the pictures above to view dogs currently in need of a foster home.


8 yr old Lulu was surrendered to a regional pound & we'd love to help her find her forever family. We don't know a lot about her except that she's very sad & missing her family. She'll require vet attention for some skin issues so we'll need someone to take her to one of our vets. She lived with a male dog so may be social with med-large males. No cats or small children due to food guarding. 5ft dig proof fences. If you can help Lulu please click the link below.


Enzo is a 12 year old Husky on the hunt for a very special carer as he is suffering a little doggy dementia. He's still active & enjoys a walk. Fences should be at least 5ft & completely dig-proof otherwise he'll find a way to take himself on that walk. He's social with other dogs but would prefer to be an only dog or live with an calm, older female dog as he tends to resource guard - he must be fed separately. For everyone's safety Enzo needs a home with no children.
