Taysia Blue Rescue
Welcome to Taysia Blue Rescue We are so glad you stopped by to learn more about our rescue and to meet some of our wonderful adoptable Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes!
Each year we save the lives of over one hundred Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes that are in immediate danger of being killed in area shelters. We do not have a facility, all our dogs live in volunteer foster homes where they get love and care and a little training until they can be placed in their forever home. You can meet the dogs by either attending one of our weekend events or by submitting an adoption questionnaire as part of our adoption process.
We are operating at full capacity. We typically have a waiting list of healthy Siberian huskies and Alaskan Malamutes that are in area shelters and running out of time. Because of this, we have to often turn down owners who wish to surrender their dogs simply because we do not have the space, we have to prioritize the dogs in immediate danger of being killed in shelters.
We would love to save more lives, but we need more foster homes, volunteer leaders and money to provide care. If you can’t foster, please think about volunteering. If you don’t have time to volunteer, please consider a donation. Together we can save the lives of these beautiful dogs.
Taysia Blue Siberian Husky Rescue is based in Omaha, Nebraska with a foster and volunteer network that stretches to Denver, Lincoln, Des Moines, IA, Kansas City, MO, Northwest Arkansas and beyond. We rescue and re-home huskies and malamutes in Nebraska, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and most surrounding states!
So what is a Taysia Blue? Taysia Blue is a real dog and the inspiration for starting the rescue. You can read more about “Tay” and her story by clicking on her picture above.
Is a particular dog still available?
If the dog is on our website, then likely he or she is still available, but what we can’t tell you and what we don’t know is that there may be an application already making arrangements to meet and possibly adopt that dog. Your best bet is to complete the online application and let our adoption counselors work with you to find a good fit. CLICK HERE
How much does it cost?
All the dogs in our care are up to date on vaccines including Rabies, Parvo / Distemper / Lepto, all are tested for heartworm and are on preventatives. All are chipped, spayed or neutered. Prices range from $250-$350 depending on age, sometimes we have promotions. All this is detailed on the website: CLICK HERE
Can I meet a particular dog?
Because we don’t have a facility, it takes a logistical dance to arrange for a dog meeting. We try to have our dogs out in public as much as possible, you can check our calendar on the website to find out when and where. To meet a dog, you would need to move forward in the adoption process by filling out an application. An adoption counselor will work with you to find a dog that best matches your wants and needs.

Currently, requests for us to help with a shelter or owner surrender dog exceed the number of open foster homes. We do not have a facility, every dog we accept into rescue must live in a volunteer’s home; safely with their resident dogs and family members.
Due to the extremely high number of requests at this time, we are forced to prioritize dogs based on proximity to our volunteers, temperament fit with available volunteers, and shelter dogs facing certain death due to overcrowding.
I am with a shelter and am asking to transfer a dog to your rescue
We also ask that your shelter is within our impact radius, generally the states of NE, IA, KS, MO, CO, AR. We ask that you complete the intake request form: CLICK HERE
We understand this is an extra step, but we get dozens of requests every day and we have to manage this, so they are not lost in the shuffle.
I need behavioral help with my dog.
We are not trainers or behavior experts. We are happy to offer advice, but we strongly suggest you search for a relationship-based trainer or a positive reinforcement trainer in your area. Often first-time consults are free. We are happy to share links to resources to give you a place to start: CLICK HERE
