Our Featured Pug

There are a lot of different ways to help our little pugs. While foster homes are always needed, you can contribute by helping with a variety of items our little boys and girls need everyday. Some items can be obtained at your local pet store or online through retail or wholesale websites. Supporting our pugs with purchased items is a significant way to help.

Also, take a look around your home. That towel or blanket that has been in the closet nobody ever uses, the pillow in the spare room nobody has slept on for years, or those old bowls, collars, leashes….anything that may make a dog’s life easier. These things cost no more than postage but mean so much to rescues.

Of course, donations via check or Paypal will always help with medical bills and daily supplies.

According to the Humane Society of the United States (2005), six to eight million dogs and cats enter shelters each year. About 50% of these animals are euthanized. Tremendous as the problem of pet overpopulation is, it can be solved if each of us takes just one small step, starting with not allowing our animals to breed.
