Community Outreach


Not only are we a dog rescue, but we are also active in the communities we live in. Click here to read more about our outreach program.

    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.

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".

We have to gorgeous boys available for adoption - our first bonded pair! They are Aussie mixes and so very super-sweet. These boys will need to go to a home together as they get very stressed when separated. We are very pleased to welcome Humphrey Bogart and George Bailey to our rescue family - check them out on the "Adoptable Dogs" page!


We want to hear from you! Please contact us at saveourherdersoutreach at gmail.com, or you can find us on Facebook!
