How To Help


We are always looking for volunteers! As an all-volunteer organization, we can always use extra hands for fostering, transporting, or outreach.

    Save Our Herders Outreach (SOHO) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to herding breeds and herding     mixed dogs in need.  We concentrate our rescue efforts in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, West Virginia     and parts of Tennessee.   Most of our volunteers and fosters live in those states and share their homes           with their own Border collies, Australian Shepherds, Australian Cattle Dogs, Working Kelpies, Corgis and/or     Shetland Sheepdogs.

Hi friends! We are raising money for Milo's leg surgery. Can you help us out with a donation? You can use our PayPal link or help us out on GoFundMe with Milo's surgery. This poor guy can't run very well and needs surgery to keep his kneecap from continuing to move around.

Our puppies (the Freedom Five!) are available for adoption! Please check out our "adoptable dogs" page in order to see them. These puppies have survived a bout of kennel cough that turned into pneumonia. If you would like to contribute to their care (which racked us up quite the vet bill), please visit our "How To Help" page and click on "Donate".
