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.

Fabulous group! We love volunteering for them! We also have adopted from them. They always seem to manage placing the right dog with the right family.

This week I found a pei needing a new home in a state that Pei People hadn’t done much in. I contacted Kim regarding the pup— within 4 hours I became a Pei People foster, the pup is a Pei People pup, we have a vet appt set, and a foster in New Mexico anxiously waiting to work her magic. Kim was compassionate with the owners, and stealth like in her ability to organize this transfer. I will foster for a couple weeks and transport. I have followed this group on line, but to be part of their operation is truly amazing. Not 1 hesitant moment in rescuing this boy.

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.)

Pei People was so great to work with! Other rescues had home/fence restrictions - but Pei People was flexible and knew good homes came in different sizes. I have a condo, but live surrounded by national forest (unfenced, of course). Almost 2 years later, Walter never misses the chance to go on a hike or grab a puppacino at Starbucks with his big sister Tamsin! He's a great fit for the family!

These people have gone above and beyond to help resue Chinese shar-pei from across the country. They work tirelessly on behalf of the animals with no personal gain other than knowing they are the last hope for these dogs.

Pei People Shar Pei Rescue group has been doing exceptional work in the rescue, foster and adoption processes for years with amazing results. The people who are involved are dedicated, professional and compassionate. Their passion for helping those pups who have been neglected and abused speaks volumes to their character. I have two rescue shar pei and my old man Harold came from this rescue group. They brought him to me from Las Vegas and I'm in Southern California. Amazing work! Here's Harold!

I live in NJ. However I am friends with Pei People rescue. And every day I read of the help and rescue of these poor neglected dogs. Plus they are always helpful if I have a question about my dog.

After losing my shar pei of 14 years I found PeiPeople.com. I explained to them the type of shar pei and personality I was hoping to find. They got back to me with 3 that would fit into my household, and suggested one of the 3 as probably the best fit. They were right, Winston is fabulous! Then later I mistakenly added another shar pei that needed rehoming, from a breeder. After 3 weeks in my home it became apparent that she and my poodle clashed. Once again PeiPeople.com came to my aid. They took this new dog from me and got her into fostering. I know, from my experience with them, that this fostered pei will get a loving home. And this winter, PeiPeople.com knows that I want to add a 2nd shar pei to my home. By having worked with them, they know me, my dogs, and my home situation. They are going to suggest to me which adoptable pei will fit in....and I 100% trust that these people will be right...again. A fantastic rescue organization to work with. People who love peis; there's nothing better!9

Pei People is an amazing organization! They go above and beyond helping Shar Pei's in need, never shying away from ones who are injured and neglected and even welcoming in senior dogs. They help those who often are overlooked by other rescues.

As a volunteer for Pei people and somebody involved in dog rescue for more than a decade, What I'm the most moved by is the close knit volunteer community that has been collectively built. Like a solid house it takes a solid foundation to build a group of dedicated hard working loyal volunteers . It's because of that solid foundation, Specifically I mean practicing safety, Sticking to a breed that we know well and have become experts in, Remaining a rescue that is Foster home based, not over stretching our resources, has afforded us the ability to successfully place dogs in their forever homes. With a solid financial foundation established and maintained by our founder Sue Allan, we are able to provide excellent medical care for the dogs we rescue and do not stress our volunteers beyond their financial or emotional limits as many rescues do. We support our Foster families and express our gratitude often, and find homes for their Foster dogs that THEY like, Because after all, without them none of this would be possible. I've been a volunteer for Pei People for over 4 years and words cannot express the satisfaction and joy I get from working with this group of volunteers on a daily basis. We are truly family working together for one cause!

I just adopted my 3rd shar pei from Pei People and have worked with them as an adopter and volunteer for 10 years. Highly recommended! They have beautiful dogs and are great about telling you everything (good and bad) they know about each dog.

Pei People are just my kind of people! There is no other breed quite like Shar Pei - with their devotion, loyalty, shenanigans - and, most often, high maintenance care. Pei People are just as devoted, loyal (to the breed), loving, and know exactly how to care for and find the perfect forever homes for these sweet "kids". I am a proud adopter of two: Django and Emma!

I fostered "Rocky" for 6 months, when i got him his skin was a MESS, barely any hair, and needs daily medicated baths to help him heal. he was also blind. but oh what a sweetie!!! he melted every time you would pet him and loved being talked to. i can't imagine the environment he was in before Pei People rescued him. i knew in 1 look that i had to foster him. all his medical was taken care of; we supplied a warm, safe, loving house complete with yummy food and 2 shar pei siblings to play with. we got him a baby pool to sit in during his medicated baths (the med shampoo had to sit for 10 minutes before being washed off), slowly his hair started to grow back. then he had to have his eyes done and then came the cone...even tho we never moved a thing in the house being blind he still ran into walls. so back to the Dr. to have the stitches redone and some crazy headgear! finally the stitches came out and even tho he remained blind he could still run through the house and out the dog door and come back in without running into things...remarkable! Then came the news he had found his forever home...and in Hilton Head Island of all places! so his flight was booked and we said our sad good byes and he jetted off. One of the best yet bittersweet experiences EVER, i would definitely foster again.

I have also volunteered and been a doggy taxi picking up a dog from a pound and transporting to the vet who would check them out and board them until a foster was found.

Another way i like to help is by listing Pei People as my donor recipient when i sell things on eBay; it's a small way to show support and help.
