Thank you for supporting MACSPRO.


Once again, we have to ask for your help in keeping our rescue going.    We are still trying to get out from under the vet and boarding bills encountered last year when we had to board numerous dogs due to lack of foster care.    We are still boarding Evan, and we have not received any applications or interest in him.  

Your donation goes a long way in helping our rescue pei.  As everyone is very well aware, vet costs have gone up and the few dogs we have taken in required extensive surgery and vet care.   We are also unable to take in any rescue dogs without a foster or adopter lined up to take the dog immediately.    We were successful in an owner surrender puppy, who need eye, nose, hernia and spay surgery.   She was fostered by our President, Betty in January and after getting her fixed up, she was adopted in March by a former adopter who recently lost his pei.  

Without donations, volunteers and foster homes, we cannot survive as a rescue.   This is not something exclusive to our rescue.   A lot of other rescues are suffering post-covid, not just shar-pei rescues.   Dogs are continually being surrendered to shelters or posted on social media that are one to two years old.   These dogs were adopted during covid and many folks’ life situations have changed and they no longer can keep the dogs they previously adopted.  

We are currently looking at fund raising events and other ideas to generate revenue for our rescue, now that things are almost back to normal, but we still need help from our shar-pei community.    

Please consider your tax-deductible donation to our organization.   Every dollar donation is greatly appreciated.  



A Huge Thank You!!!

Thank You for all the generous donations we received from our last call for help!    We were able to meet our $2500 matching funds goal, and the monies collected have been applied to our outstanding vet and boarding bills from last year.    We still have bills and are always in need of any donation.    We appreciate all the support we receive from everyone so that we can continue to Save the Pei!!!

Please, please if you can dip into your pockets to help, it would be greatly appreciated.  Remember, 100% of all monies received go to these Pei and are tax-deductible!

The Mid-Atlantic Chinese Shar Pei Rescue Operations takes in dogs from local and distant shelters and owner surrenders only.    We are not involved in dog auctions that sell confiscated dogs from puppy mills.   Most of these occur in the Midwest, we do not have the ways or means (or money) to travel out there.   As most of you already know, we rely entirely on donations to rescue, rehab and place these saved pei in their forever homes.   In all truth, there are more than enough dogs needing rescue in our local, DC, Maryland and Virginia shelters and we do our best to get them out.  

We have brought in dogs from Puerto Rico (there are actually two waiting to come to Maryland) with the help of rescues in Puerto Rico who get the necessary vetting for travel and provide the transportation up here.

As always, 100% of the donations we receive go to the dogs.  Our volunteers spent their own time, money and gas to retrieve these dogs in need and take them to and from the vet appointments. 
Fosters who help us provide the food and love the pei need to help their over come the traumatic circumstances that caused them to be homeless.

We truly appreciate all the monetary help provided by our supporters over the years and can only continue with your help.   Please consider donating today to MACSPRO.

Look at Wally (previously Remington) on PetWants Food!!!!!!

When Wally named in honor of Washington Wizards point guard John Wall came to us in need of much medical attention and his coat was really bad.  It was very thin, missing, irritated and so hard and course which was so sad because he is such as sweet loving boy greeting you with a nearly bald wagging tale and little body.  After some medicated shampoo's and being on #PetWants dog food for over a month check him out now!  We have used PetWants on a previous MACSPRO dog and after a week you can see and feel a difference with bald spots filling in and course coats getting softer and softer until it's like velvet.  One of our volunteers switched to PetWants after the food that was being used changed their ingredients and her shar-pei did not respond well with her allergies and chronic skin condition.  She switched to PetWants food and she improved leaps and bounds with soothing her skin from irritation, itchy, red and bald spots making life good again.  www.petwantsmountainmaryland.com

A big thanks to Nick, Ashley & Rashad for providing updates and taking such excellent care of their newest family member!!!!

End of January 2018 after arriving at MACSPRO and being on PetWants for about 2 weeks

After being on PetWants for a little over a month. (I know he looks brown in one and black in another but both is our little Wally)
