Holiday Message from Anna and Rich

Hello, and Happy Fall!




We hope your summer was filled with lots of good times and happy memories. Redding remained dry as with most of CA, but now we are receiving some much needed rain. Unfortunately, the "kids" are not too happy with this water coming out of the sky, and it makes their walks quite a challenge. We hope they will have to get used to it since we so badly need the rain.




Thanksgiving is almost here, and as with years gone by, we have much to be thankful for. We are grateful to all of you for your continued support. Some of you have been with us since the beginning about 15 years ago. Others are new to our "family". All of you help us to make a difference to the dogs who need us so badly. The thing that we are most appreciative of is our adopters who open their hearts and homes to one or more of our orphans. You all are the reason we are able to continue to save these wonderful Pei. There are times Rich and I feel so bad for some of our "kids" who are continually overlooked when it comes to being adopted. This year two of those dogs were placed in homes and are doing well. Poor Molly looked like she had been nearly bred to death, but her new family in Oklahoma saw beyond her physical looks and accepted her into their home. Milly was with us for about two years before her special family found her. Now she is living the good life in Montana in a loving home where her biggest challenge will be dealing with the snow. These are the happy endings that keep us going and help to reinforce that what we do does make a difference.




If you are able to make a year end donation to help our "kids" it would be much appreciated. This rescue is totally dependent on your generosity to be able to continue to take in new dogs and meet their needs. All donations are tax deductible, and can be made by check or donating through Paypal. If you are going to be doing any online shopping with Amazon, you can help out by using AmazonSmile that will donate a portion of your purchase back to us. Please use this link: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-2938414. Very soon we will be announcing another fundraiser just in time for the holidays. We will provide more details in a few days.




We hope you all enjoy and safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Help Ziggy

Please meet Ziggy. We were able to rescue this handsome boy from a shelter in Southern CA today. He does have some medical needs including getting neutered and entropion surgery. As Thanksgiving approaches, Ziggy has much to be grateful for and is looking forward to a wonderful new life. He did ask us to ask you if you could make a donation to be put towards his medical procedures so he can start that new life with a clean bill of health.

Thank you from all of us at CA Shar Pei Rescue

Badly Injured at the Shelter




This gorgeous 1-year old boy is Zeus. He is currently in a Southern California shelter.

As you can see, he has been attacked by another dog—we believe it happened at the shelter—and has gaping lacerations on his face, neck, and ear. And has more than 10 staples in his head.

Acting on faith that our always generous supporters will help, we have agreed to immediately rescue Zeus, so he can have the proper home environment to heal, and the wound care he needs. We are hoping to raise $1000 toward his medical transport and veterinary expenses.

We Need Your Help - Disaster Evacuation Plan


Greetings from a very hot Redding, CA. We are in the midst of fire season, and right now, have fires burning in several locations around us.

Back in 1999, we were evacuated due to fire. Fortunately, we only had 11 dogs at the time, and were able to get them all out safely. We were very lucky. Last week, with flames just a few miles away, the rescue was put on evacuation alert. We stayed safe, but were acutely reminded that—with 25 dogs to save—we must be prepared if an actual evacuation were to happen again.

The photos you see are of a trailer that is filled with enough crates to get every dog out of danger safely. The trailer was made possible by a generous previous adopter who understands the seriousness of a possible evacuation. In order to make the trailer roadworthy, however, we need to invest in six new tires and replace the air conditioning unit. The total estimated repairs are $2,000. And, of course, we must keep the trailer insured and registered.

We are asking for your donations toward these repairs, to make sure we can put an evacuation plan in place. This is a small price to pay to guarantee no dog gets left behind.

We hope the trailer never needs to leave our property, but if it does, a friend and fellow animal rescuer here in Redding has very generously offered to let us “shelter” at her property, if ours is in danger. This means we would have food, water and a large, safe yard for all of our "kids".

We want the best for every dog in our care, and your donations will help us ensure we can ALWAYS provide them with the best—even if they have to leave "home".
