Huskies In Need is a highly dedicated rescue charity who specialise in the rescue and re-homing of Siberian Huskies and Siberian Husky cross breeds. We will also take Alaskan Malamutes & Samoyeds if it is an emergency.
We cover the whole of the UK and the Republic of Ireland with the help of our dedicated volunteers and try to give as much help/advice as we possibly can. We will help with any Husky related problem big or small.
We have volunteers throughout the country who have a huge passion for the Siberian Husky breed. They give their own time and energy for free, and love the dogs like their own. Without them there would not be a rescue.Read more
The Siberian Husky is one of the recognised sled dog breeds. The others are the Alaskan Malamute, the Canadian Eskimo Dog and the Samoyed.
