Jema (#605-18)

Jema (originally called Charlotte) was a scared and frightened girl in a Hyde Park NY shelter.  Jeff volunteered to drive from South Jersey to pick her up and foster her for MACSPRO.   After driving thru a snowstorm and having her in his home for a few days, which was pretty lonely after his beloved Kosmo crossed the Rainbow Bridge,  Jeff and Maryann couldn’t let her go and became Foster Failures.  They even named her after them!  JE from Jeff and MA from Maryann.   Jema is now living a great life, getting spoiled by her new parents in Jackson, NJ.   Way to go Jema.

Mugsy (#601-18)

Mugsy came to MACSPRO on March 9th, 2018.  He was found as a stray on the streets of Richmond, VA and was unclaimed after two weeks.  The vet determined his age to be about 10 months old.  Whether it was due to poor diet or neglect, Mugsy came into the shelter with half his coat missing, extremely thin (32 pounds) and open bloody sores all over his underbelly and legs.  He immediately went to the vet for an examination. The vet believes that he may have some pygmy hippopotamus in his genes.

Doobu (#582-17)

Doobu is a 3 year old female in need of a foster or forever home.  Doobu is very outgoing, playful, loves toys, and responds to commands.  She has a larger than life personality and will want to be near her caregiver.  She walks ok on leash and is very chilled out at home when with her family. Doobu has excellent manners at dinner and when taking treats.  Doobu is in need of ACL corrective surgery so we would need her new family's cooperation in pre and post vet instructions, which may or may not include taking her to therapy temporally and limiting her movement until she heals I'm sure with the help of medication.  

If you are not able to foster or adopt Doobu, our little comic relief then please consider DONATING any amount you choose towards her ACL repair medical care. No amount is ever too small. MACSPRO greatly appreciates any donation, no matter the amount. To Donate towards Doobu's needed pending ACL surgery please Click Here and specify Doobu in comments

A SPECIAL THANK YOU!!!!!!  MACSPRO would like to thank Deb Kachik of Deb Kachik Photography for volunteering to take some of the beautiful photo's you see of Doobu.  Thank you so much Deb, you really help bring out all of Doobu's wonderful sharpei wrinkles.

Update (8/03/17) – Doobu’s knee is completely healed from her surgery and she is feeling great.   She made the long trip to her new home in Hampstead, NC will she will have a great life with her adopted Dad, Burt.
