Dash and Blue Need Your Help!

Dash and Blue really need your help!! MACSPRO has had a number of unusual expenses come up this year, and now we have two very gentle and loving rescue Shar-Pei in serious need of operations!!


Blue’s inner eyelid is in need of repair. Known as Cherry Eye, it can cause serious irritation. This will cost us a minimum of $500.


Dash has a cataract in one of his eyes. The estimate to remove it is $2500 minimum. If he does not have this surgery, he will go blind in that eye. The doctor thinks he can currently only see light and dark.

PLEASE - help us to help them so we can find them loving forever homes. Remember Donations are tax deductible. You can donate through Pay Pal or write a check directly to MACSPRO. Send to P.O. Box 34034, Bethesda, MD 20827. Mark for Blue and Dash.

Simba (#531-15)

Simba is happily staying with his foster family and is starting to come out of his shell. His foster dad is training him and says he is doing great!

Oliver (#532-15)

Oliver is one of the 66 SharPei that were rescued from a hoarder situation in Berkeley County, South Carolina. Oliver is still a bit timid but loves gentle pets to his face. Oliver is receiving heartworm treatment and will be up for adoption once HW is complete.

China (#535-15)

Foster needed for Dash

Dash is the newest addition to the MACSPRO gang. He is currently being transported to Maryland this Saturday and needs a foster. 

Dash is very sociable and is playful with children. Dash has never lived with other pets but likes to chase stray cats in the yard. Dash is crate trained and well behaved when home alone. He's a bit smaller than most Shar-pei.  Dash needs a nice loving home to help him transition out of shelter life and into a forever home.  If you are ready to foster Dash or would like more information about Dash email us at

Ellie and Cassidy are looking for their furever homes!

Ellie, our sweet Sharpei X, is still in search of her furever home! Ellie loves to play, gets along with people and is great with kids. Ellie is looking to be the only dog in the home. 

Cassidy is one of our old rescues from 2012 that came back to us. Cassidy is about 2.5 years old. Although Cassidy needs to gain some weight, she is still full of energy and would love to have a new home. 


MACSPRO will be at PetValu in the Cabin John Shopping Center (7723-7725 Tuckerman Lane, Potomac, MD) this Sunday, February 8th, from 11:00am to 2:00pm. We hope to have both Ellie and Cassidy so please stop by to say hi!
