The Mid-Atlantic Chinese Shar-Pei Rescue Operation, Inc. (MACSPRO) is a privately funded 501©(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and adoption of purebred Chinese Shar-Pei.

Our rescue provides necessary medical care and vaccinations before adoption. All the Shar-Pei adopted are spayed or neutered to make them better pets and to keep them from adding to the overpopulation problem. They are also tested for Heartworm, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme and Anaplasmosis and treated if necessary. All of our dogs also undergo a
