Help MACSPRO get a $500 Donation by walking your dog!

MACSPRO could win $500 with the new WoofTrax Walk & Win Challenge!

Please join the WoofTrax Walk & Win Challenge on the free Walk for a Dog app and their next walk could earn MACSPRO an EXTRA $500 donation. Sharing the challenge will also increase your number of active walkers to increase your regular WoofTrax donations.

Walk for a Dog users simply join the challenge on the app and then complete the challenge by taking at least 10 walks by November 30, 2017, and then every walk they take during the challenge will count as an entry for MACSPRO to win an extra $500 donation.* More walks and more walkers equal a greater opportunity to earn $500.

Thank you for all you do for the animals,

* Walks greater than 1/4 of a mile count in the challenge.

MACSPRO Still in need of Donations!

IF YOU HAVEN’T YET, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO MACSPRO AT THIS TIME
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONATED, WE THANK YOU AND SO DO THE PEI. 

  
MACSPRO is in desperate need of funds to pay off some very large vet bills for recent work done on our rescue dogs.   Oscar has had extensive ear surgery,

Annabelle was in quarantine while at the vets for treatment, Doobu had her knee rebuilt that included a complicated TPLO.  Originally it was thought a standard ACL was needed.  In the end Doobu's knee had to be rebuilt to bend in a different way then when she was born and her meniscus was totally gone and absorbed by her body.    VA Tech Vet School did a amazing job.  They even had to remove a large amount of arthritis so there would be a grove for her femur to have a grove in her tibia.  Almost every other dog taken in this year has needed entropin surgery as well as neutering/spaying, clearing up ear issues and getting them all up to date their necessary shots.     Our generous vet has provided the necessary treatment to these dogs so that they would be medically sound before going to their forever homes.   We are so very grateful, but still need to pay our bill!
 
We totally rely on donations to keep this rescue going.  Without your generosity, we cannot continue to help save these dogs.   We get emails and calls every day from shelters who do not want to put these poor abandoned and neglected dogs down and MACSPRO cannot always step up and take them.  
 
Please, please if you can dip into your pockets to help make this campaign a great success it would be greatly appreciated.  Remember; 100% of all monies received goes to these Pei!   Our volunteers help defray office, transportation and food costs by donating their time, transportation and own monies to get these dogs up here and to and from the vets.  But we can always use more help and there are always more dogs to save.   Without funding, we are turning away wonderful dogs every day that are being put down by shelters who have no room to keep them.

A Note about Fosters:
We are always looking for reliable foster families to sponsor our dogs.    By fostering a rescue, we are able to keep them out of a boarding kennel and keep that part of our costs down.  By being in a home environment, we are also able to get a better understanding of the shrapei's true personality and they are able to function without the stress & confusion of a kennel.
