About Us

The goal of Shar-Pei Rescue of VA is to help rehabilitate and re-home shelter Shar-Pei, Shar-Pei in situations of cruelty and neglect, and Shar-Pei from families that can no longer care for them.  We are an IRS 501©3 approved organization. Our group is comprised of volunteers that are dedicated to finding loving, forever homes for Shar-Pei in need.

Feature SharPei - Hennie
Sponsor me Hennie

Hi, I‘m Hennie! I am a sweet little six year old girl rescued from a Tennessee shelter. I am good with other dogs and cats too. I was raised with a child in my previous home.

I am an energetic girl who also enjoys naps around the house. I am very smart and gentle, and I love to play tug of war with my rope. I also like to sit and shake paws for treats. I am always wagging my tail and am just a happy, loving girl.

Do I sound like the girl for you?  If so, please fill out an application and ask for Hennie!

Please visit the adoption page to read more about me and see more pictures!

Potential adopters should fill out an Online Adoption Application.  Alternatively, you can download, fill out, and submit an application.  More Info
