What programs do you have?

Our programs are targeted both to high-risk dogs and owners in need. 

  • We are a foster-based rescue, and our volunteers take in dogs from shelters and sometimes from private owners based on availability and need to adopt to deserving and wonderful homes.

  • We run a community outreach program that visits neighborhoods in Central Virginia to disburse dog food, dog houses, and other supplies to owners in need.

  • We partner with other groups to transport, rescue, and save dogs in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.

SOHO is a 501(c)3 registered public charity specializing in dog rescue and rehabilitation with a community outreach component. We have professional, certified trainers as a part of our group as well as dedicated, experienced volunteers. Please contact us if you have any questions about our programs, dogs, or intake / owner surrenders.

    • Save Our Herders Outreach, P.O. Box 11223, Richmond, VA, 23230​

We are a committed, highly experienced group of herding dog rescuers operating to save herding dogs in Virginia and the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. We have taken in many herding dogs into our foster homes and paired them with wonderful adoptive homes.  Our dogs come primarily from shelters, though we do occasionally take in owner surrenders based on evaluation and circumstance.


We are foster-based and do not have a main facility, as we believe that all dogs should have a home - even if it's temporary and while they are in search for their forever home.
