In the early 2000’s, The Bulson’s began their multi-decade involvement with local dog rescues. What started as ‘just one dog’, turned into fostering and re-homing more than 150 dogs, including litters of puppies, seniors, medically challenged dogs, and dogs with severe behavioral issues.
Since then, they have opened the doors of Mason Dixon K9 Boarding and Training facility, and continue to pour their passions into assisting rescues. Their work of training the once unwanted and 'un-adoptable' dogs into becoming irreplaceable family pets, canine companions and Canine Good Citizen ® has saved countless lives. We invite you to explore the rescues Mason Dixon K9 works closely with, you might find your next canine companion.
The Adams County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), is an IRC 501 c-3 non-profit organization that provides shelter and care for lost, abandoned and abused animals, investigates cases of cruelty to animals, recommends the prosecution of persons engaging in animal neglect or cruelty, helps control animal overpopulation and educates the community about spay/neuter programs, animal wellness and safety.
The dogs pulled from shelters by House of Hope are primarily black labs/lab mixes as they have the highest euthanasia rate of any other breed/color combination in the country, but we also extend a helping hand to dogs of many other breeds, dogs that our volunteer network can save and place in good homes. No dog is too old, too sick, too injured, too untrained, or too “anything” for us to help; we have rescued senior dogs, dogs that have been in car accidents, or shot, or burned, dogs that require hospice fostering due to terminal conditions, feral dogs that have never known human kindness, bonded pairs that need to be adopted together, litters of orphaned puppies, and everything in between. At House of Hope, we believe there is a perfect home for each and every dog. And we are committed to finding it for them.
K-9 Lifesavers pulls dogs from low-income rural areas, where hundreds of highly-adoptable dogs are euthanized every week due to overpopulation, lack of spay/neuter education, and inadequate funding. With the help of our dedicated volunteers, transporters, shelter partners, and donors, K-9 Lifesavers saves lives “Four Paws at a Time”.
