Southern Comfort Maltese Rescue

"The Best Lickers in The South"

Our Mission: We are dedicated to rescuing and caring for Maltese and other toy breeds (as room allows) who are either rescued from shelters, found as strays, or no longer wanted by their family (owner).


Adoptable Dogs

At SCMR, we are committed to matching the right dog with the right family. We have a variety of dogs available for adoption, including different breeds, ages, and sizes. All of our dogs have received a thorough medical examination, including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and microchipping. We also provide ongoing support to our adoptive families, including training and advice.

Adopting a dog is a lifelong commitment, and we at SCMR are here to support you every step of the way. Not only will you be giving a loving home to a pup in need, but you'll also be enriching your own life with the love and companionship that only a dog can provide.

In loving Memory

SCMR’s co-founder and president, Mary Louise Dube’, passed peacefully in December 2014 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. Our hearts are broken to say farewell to our sweet Mary. She is survived by her husband Richard. She was a passionate advocate for animals and a wealth of knowledge and information. She served on the board of directors for the McKamey Animal Care and Adoption Center in Chattanooga, TN. She was retired from Unum where she served as Director of Purchasing and Outsource Management. 

Mary worked for Unum for over 30 years. She earned an Associate of Science Degree in Wildlife Management from Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Westbrook College in Portland, Maine while working full-time. She was a skilled horticulturist specializing in African Violets and Orchids. And she was a treasured friend. Mary saved many little lives and made a huge difference not only for them but for all who were blessed to know her. 


Give a Gift Donation

If you're looking for the perfect gift for your favorite dog-lover, consider a Gift Donation to help us with our rescue dogs. Please consider giving a donation in 'honor' or in 'memory' of that special someone. Your gift Donation will help give life to these special creatures. Your donation will not collect dust or have to be returned because it's the wrong color, size or style - it will be put to great use to save lives and re-home discarded Maltese.

Gift Donations to our Rescue can be made at any time for any special occasion!


Please note that we will send an acknowledgement card to the intended family or individual to recognize your donation.
