Operation Scarlet (Lancaster, PA)
Operation Scarlet is a breed rescue dedicated to helping save homeless Shar-Pei. Fully run by volunteers, Operation Scarlet has been helping find forever homes for this wonderfully wrinkled breed for 23 years. The Shar-Pei (pronounced shah pay; meaning sand skin) originated in China over 2,000 years ago and almost became extinct when they were placed in dog fighting rings. Operation Scarlet will be using the grant to help pay for dental surgery for two dogs currently in their care. To find out more, visit them at www.operationscarlet.com.
