Fosters Needed for Two New Pei

Pumba came to MACSPRO from Puerto Rico. We need a foster for this sweet boy as soon as possible! 
Pumba is 44.6 pounds, 3.5 yrs, fixed, 4dx negative, skin test negative. The trainers in Puerto Rico say Pumba is not food possessive, he shared with other dogs and reacted well. Pumba is very calm and sweet. 

Cruz, previously Thirteen, is a 2 year old male coming to us from NYC.  Cruz lived with 2 adults and has been around children ages 6 and up. He plays and jumps up a little rough for toddlers.  He has lived with cats and chases them but was never aggressive or harmful towards them. His behavior is unknown towards dogs. He has lived indoors only and his activity level is medium. Cruz's previous owner describes him as playful, excitable, affectionate, mellow and friendly.  Read more about Cruz.

If you would like to foster Pumba or Cruz please put in an application today.

Our Gang

We've attached the latest Our Gang for November.  Feel free to print out a copy and pin it up at a local community board at your favorite cafe or coffee house.

Foster for Pumkin and Rocky Gap Casino Tickets

Foster Needed for Pumkin

  

Pumkin is a sweet one year old girl and still plenty of puppy. She appears to have been crated most of her life and her dislocated hip will always give her a limp but it is not painful. She loves toys, walks and lots of love. She trains easily and is almost completely housebroken in just a few short days. Pumkin becomes attached to people very quickly and obey commands, but she does not do well in a crate as she will cry continually. 

Please help this good girl who was saved just 30 minutes from being euthanized when MACSPRO saved her. Please contact us at peirescue@macspro.org if you think you can help!

Billie & Bo are almost here! Meet them at the Adopt-A-Thon

Billie and Bo are on their freedom ride!

Now that they are almost here, we have already planned for them to start their heatworm treatments.  As a result, Billie and Bo both need foster homes to ease their recovery.  Email us (peirescue@macspro.org) if you think you can help.

Adopt-A-Thon

Join us this Saturday for our Adopt-A-Thon at Country Kennels in Mt. Airy, MD 10AM-1PM.  If Billie and Bo are doing well, they should be out ready to meet and greet.  

Your Financial Help Now Can Save Two Young Shar-Pei Lives

Would your Shar-Pei companion be with you now if MACSPRO had not been there to save them? 
There are two young Shar-Pei in Arkansas that have heartworm and MACSPRO needs help to transport and treat these Pei. 
Why Arkansas dogs? 

  • First, there are no local dogs in as dire need at present.  
  • Second, there are no funds available to treat these dogs at their present location. So they are destined for euthanasia. . . .  

All the “free” transports we have contacted do not want to transport heartworm dogs even though they are not contagious. We have found a transport who will bring them “door to door” for $700.00 per Pei. That would make it a total of $1400 for the transport.
Then of course, the kenneling or fostering and their medical treatment will start.  As we know, heartworms are completely curable, but we need your help! Please head over to www.macspro.org/donate to help today.
We will keep you advised as Billie and Bo are hopefully saved. Thanks for all your support.
