I've been volunteering with this organization for almost 8 years now. I appreciate our Pei community and how everyone is friendly and helpful. We transport, volunteer, foster and have adopted from this organization. Whenever I post about our female (adopted 7yrs ago through Pei People) the rescue remembers her. It's a great feeling & comfort to be part of a group of like-minded individuals who share the same passion.

I have been working with shar pei rescue groups since the early 2000's and this group has been the most resourceful and helpful rescue that I've ever worked for. Everyone is there for each other, even though many of us are located in different states. I have also adopted two pei from Pei People so I give them double points.

When my sharpei Rocky got old and was not going to be with me much longer, I called Pei People after looking at their website and telling them I wanted to adopt an older dog named Trump who was being fostered in southern CA. I live in Northern CA. They even arranged with a volunteer pilot to fly Trump up to me. This is how committed they are to getting forever homes for the dogs they rescue. It's been two years now and I still love my rescue dog. I can't say enough about this organization's volunteers and all they do for the doggies.

The Pei People Shar Pei Rescue is absolutely WONDERFUL! They give beyond 100% of dedication to giving these animals a second chance. This organization is like a big family. They help out from state to state with everything from transportation, events, advice, pulling dogs from shelters & just keeping everyone in the loop. My husband & I had adopted a blind dog from them about 3 years ago. His story was that he was in a shelter with SEVERE skin & immune problems. Pei Ppl went & pulled him out of the shelter, treated him & got him healthy enough to be adopted! Thank u for giving Dallas a second chance at life! From day one of meeting the Pei ppl, We will always say THANK YOU for all you do! My husband & I have been volunteering for them since day one. Attached is a few photos from going to be getting out of “jail”, PEI PPL GOT HIM FEELING BETTER, our gotcha day & happy a life

I've been fostering for this rescue for years and the people I've met who volunteer as well as the people who've adopted dogs have become great friends.

This group of rescue vollenteers does such an outstanding job. It’s highly organized and does rescue and placing Shar Pei dogs”not the easiest breed to rescue or cheepest vet bills ” into quality loving forever homes. I have one adoption from them and fostered on occasion. They do it all the correct way. Best rescue ever.

Pei People could be a model for rescues, breed specific and others. I found a Pei online in a state they were not set up In. Within 24 hours, I applied and became a Pei foster, they contacted the owner, had the dog in foster care, vetted, and transported within the next 3 weeks. Henry is in great health, and in a loving home. I am a foster for a local rescue, and this group takes it to a high level of competency and caring with their network of fosters and contributors.

I fostered Tigger for Pei People 5 years ago...of course I ended up adopting him ! I was so impressed with the support I received from the state coordinator here in Phoenix I decided to continue to foster. Any dog who ends up a Pei People dog is very lucky! These dogs get the veterinary care they need and are placed in foster homes where they get love, attention and often basic training...Pei People does the best job they can matching their dogs with forever families...this is a great rescue!

Peipeople doesn't just help rescue shar pei's, they help the family looking to adopt a shar pei. I adopted Winston from them. But I needed a certain personality in my rescue because of other animals in my home. They matched me up with PERFECTION! I couldn't have done better. This organization knows the breed! I will continue to let them find the best additions to my home.

Our family loves PeiPeople. We adopted a rescue Shar Pei and re-named her Charlie and was absolutely the best doggie ever. PeiPeople was fantastic in making sure Charlie was a perfect fit for our family and helped us throughout the entire process. I can’t wait when the time is right to adopt our next SharPei from them again.

Pei People Shar Pei Rescue does amazing work. Their volunteers work hard, day in and day out, saving dogs, transporting dogs to appointments and foster homes, caring for those in the foster homes, answering the calls of shelters that are overfilled and forced to put dogs on the euth list, taking excellent care of the dogs until they are adopted and caring forever for those that may not be adoptable. They go above and beyond, giving their all and setting a pace that is hard for others to follow. They are the flagship rescue proving that all is possible.

I have adopted two amazing dogs from this rescue in the last year, and it has changed my life. Pei People finds these pups that are abandoned and in need of a family, and they give them a safe place to land until they are adopted. They get amazing veterinary care and the fosters who take these dogs in are wonderfully kind and loving. And after adoption, the people who work in this organization make themselves available as resources for those of us who are less experienced dog-owners. And most importantly, my pups, Penelope and Ichabod, have made my life so much brighter and happier. I wouldn’t have my sweet pups if not for this wonderful rescue.

My experience with Pei People has been and continues to be more than I could hope for. From the start, all logistical details were perfectly in place. I rescued a beautiful 2 year old little boy, or should I say, he rescued me on Dec. 3, 2016. From the initial onsite visit, to the day I met the foster family, Kim from Pei People knew exactly what was best. I was impressed with how careful they were to make sure I deserve their trust. I was so appreciative to find an organization that cares so much. I feel they continue to play an active role in the success of this adoption. They continue to be available for consultation if I have questions about any health concerns. Follow up is always timely, and with genuine care. I firmly believe that ALL pets who become part of the Pei People Shar Pei Rescue could not have been saved by a FINER group of people. (Nancy Trouts & "Makana" of Fountain Hills, AZ.)
