Your Financial Help Now Can Save Two Young Shar-Pei Lives

Would your Shar-Pei companion be with you now if MACSPRO had not been there to save them? 
There are two young Shar-Pei in Arkansas that have heartworm and MACSPRO needs help to transport and treat these Pei. 
Why Arkansas dogs? 

  • First, there are no local dogs in as dire need at present.  
  • Second, there are no funds available to treat these dogs at their present location. So they are destined for euthanasia. . . .  

All the “free” transports we have contacted do not want to transport heartworm dogs even though they are not contagious. We have found a transport who will bring them “door to door” for $700.00 per Pei. That would make it a total of $1400 for the transport.
Then of course, the kenneling or fostering and their medical treatment will start.  As we know, heartworms are completely curable, but we need your help! Please head over to to help today.
We will keep you advised as Billie and Bo are hopefully saved. Thanks for all your support.

Meet Bear

Hello! My name is Bear. I’ve had quite the journey during my short life of 3 years. When I was a puppy my name was Cora. Life was pretty rough being in a shelter with no forever family to call mine. I thankfully was rescued and placed in a new home where I was loved and given my new name, Bear! I love it! Unfortunately, bad luck struck again and my owners became ill and could not care for me any longer. So back to the rescue I went. I became sad and withdrawn and felt helpless. I didn’t understand why no one wanted to be my forever family.

A couple weeks later I traveled a long distance to live with someone else. I was scared, but it was better than living in a kennel. I was nervous and unsure, but after a few days I started to feel comfortable and started to trust my foster mom.

I have to say, I really love my foster home and mom. She’s great! She gives me so much love and attention and I’m feeling more like my true self every day. I love belly rubs, treats, and strolls around the neighborhood. I am fond of my roommates, even if they are of the feline persuasion.

My foster mom was even kind enough to get me a dog walker so I can have those strolls I like so much while she is at work. How awesome is that!
I do have some fears that I am working to overcome. I am fearful of most men. I can’t remember why, but they bring back unsafe feelings. I also am not a fan of other dogs. I know, I know. I could have more friends if I liked them, but I just have this huge trust issue when it comes to my K-9 companions. This is embarrassing, but I tend to lunge and bark when I see them. A good offense is a good defense, right? Ok, I know, maybe not in this situation. I’ve had so many bad experiences that it’s hard to change the reaction. But don’t worry, I am working on it. Both my foster mom and pet sitter are helping me to get used to seeing other dogs and to calm down in those situations. It will take some time, but they seem to have faith in me. They think I have a heart of gold.

I am a true love bug with my trusted friends. I give kisses and hugs and wag my tail proudly. I adore belly rubs. They are the best! If you are looking for a loving, loyal, sweet friend to add to your family I could be your gal. Contact the rescue for more information. I’d love to meet you!
