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. 


MAGSR is dedicated to rehabilitating and providing a second chance to German shepherds and shepherd mixes that have been abandoned, abused, lost, strayed, or surrendered. Through our community outreach events around the Mid-Atlantic region, we teach and encourage responsible pet ownership and pet population control. Our all-volunteer organization works diligently to locate loving and responsible owners who wish to make their new dog(s) members of their family -- forever. MAGSR remains committed to helping end the needless overpopulation, death, abuse, and neglect of dogs in our area and in improving the lives of the dogs as well as their new owners.



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.



Located across north-central Maryland and central Pennsylvania, we are a dog rescue that works with shelters that do not have the resources to coordinate adoptions. We, and other rescues like us, are the only hope to extend the lives of dogs these shelters have taken in.

Our dedicated volunteers spend countless hours fostering, transporting, providing care, and working hard to do everything we can to find our dogs forever homes. All of our dogs are cared for by dedicated fosters.


Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue is a no-kill, all-volunteer organization whose members are passionate about German Shepherd Dogs. Our efforts are focused on helping these GSDs who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in high kill shelters or otherwise homeless, lost, neglected or abandoned by humans they loved.

Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue (IDGSR) was founded in 2011 by a compassionate lover of German Shepherds. Seeing the "imminent danger" many German Shepherd Dogs were in, rescuing them from those situations was the only choice to make, so began IDGSR.


Reeds Rescue is a non-profit volunteer dog rescue organization serving the Northern Baltimore County area. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs of senior age or deemed to be terminally ill from area shelters, dogs given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of decompensating in the shelter environment. 


Our organization is dedicated to helping to reunite owners with their lost pets by advising on the best practices and procedures of lost pet recovery.  We can offer advice & trapping and have access to tracking dogs (paid service) through Freestate Pet Tracking.

Additionally, we will work to ease the burden of the local shelters by assisting with placing dogs into the care of fosters to help get them ready for their forever homes instead of remaining scared and at risk in the shelter. 

Our promise to you is that your pet is like family to us and we will do everything we can to BRING EM HOME!

Australian Shepherds Furever

Established in 2013, Australian Shepherds Furever (ASF) is a National Non Profit 501(C)(3) Corporation dedicated to saving Australian Shepherds in need nationwide. With the focus of rescue-foster-adoption, ASF finds puppies and dogs, both mixed and purebred, in need across the continental United States. Our dedicated team of volunteer staff works tirelessly to locate Aussies in need of rescue and save them from shelters, deplorable living conditions or other undesirable circumstances. 

Once in our care, we offer them foster homes, medical care, training, rehabilitation, and all the attention and love they need to thrive again. When each Aussie is ready, we do our due diligence to find them their new, forever home with the perfect person or family.


Members of both Bull Run Australian Cattle Dog Club and the North Atlantic Australian Cattle Dog Club had been rescuing cattle dogs for years. It was decided that rescue activities could be more efficient if there was a stand-alone rescue organization not encumbered by breed club activities. We were created to save our beloved cattle dogs from abuse, neglect and abandonment.

Although both clubs jointly founded ACDRA, independence for the new organization was built in to the startup agreement and now ACDRA stands on its own as an independent entity, working on its own merit and its own set of policies and procedures. The goal is to work in a 3-way partnership to create a stronger networking community to save the many cattle dogs in need.
