Woof Project is a 501c3 non-profit group comprised of dedicated volunteers who specialize in rescuing the Belgian Shepherd Malinois on the West Coast. The dogs we acquire in rescue are often from private or public shelters. They may have originally been picked up as strays or turned in by their owners. Through no fault of their own, all of our rescues are without a secure, loving home. Our goal at Woof Project is to save the Belgian Malinois and match them up with loving, forever families.


When you inquire about one of our available dogs, you will be asked to fill out an application. A Woof Project coordinator will contact you for a phone interview. If approved, we will then set up a home visit. Each of our dogs has their own unique, individual personalities and our goal is to find a perfect match for you and your lifestyle.


Our group is especially knowledgeable about the Belgian Malinois. We have volunteer experts in veterinary care, nutrition and training. During and after adoption, we offer dedicated support for you and your adopted Malinois. The Belgian Malinois community is a small, devoted group who are passionate about the Belgian Malinois, their well-being and the future of the breed. Owning a Belgian Malinois is a way of life. Not ready to commit? Please consider being a foster. Visit our FAQ page or Contact Us for more information on fostering or adopting a Belgian Malinois.
