MACSPRO DOES NOT BUY DOGS AT AUCTION

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)
