24th Annual May Party was a blast!

Our heartfelt thanks go to all of you who attended our 24th Annual May Pug Party at Del Mar this past Saturday, May 2nd. It was a fantastic turn out and we were so grateful for the pug-friendly weather. The costume contests were a hit and the cupcake chomp was a sight to behold. If you won a raffle basket, enjoy your goodies!

Another year has come and gone and we are overjoyed by all of the wonderful support from everyone. We are so thrilled at the funds we have raised to save the puggies! We want to thank all of our volunteers, donors and attendees! You are truly what helps us stay the top Pug Rescue organization in Southern California.

We look forward to seeing you next May 2016 for the 25th Annual Pug Party! Please follow us on Facebook for more information as well as the THEME ANNOUNCEMENT!

See you again soon!

Special Book offer to help PRSDC!

We received this wonderful message from Rhys Ella with this offer to help PRSDC:

Hi! My name is Rhys Ella and I'm the author of "Kato and the Fountain of Wrinkles," the comical tale of famous pug, Kato Rhyan, who longs for nothing more in this world than to win an Oscar for Best Actor, even if it means taking on a role that requires a wrinkly dog's worst nightmare -- Botox injections.

Written in honor and memory of my beloved pugs, Prince "Kato" Chang and EJ the Pug, the book was released on November 18, 2014, by Tate Publishing and Enterprises (ISBN#: 978-1-63268-875-0), is 284 pages of family fun and is available with a 5 star rating on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble and through many bookstores nationwide and internationally.

During the month of May, I'll be donating $5.00 to Pug Rescue of San Diego County each time a copy of, "Kato and the Fountain of Wrinkles," is purchased online at www.rhysella.com. Please use code "PRSDC" at time of purchase. All books are signed personally by me and are typically mailed within 1 day or less at no extra fee.


Please Help! PRSDC Needs You!

Pug Rescue Of San Diego County is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. Your tax-deductible donation goes 100% to the animals and helps provide a full spectrum of care, including: vaccinations, spay & neuter, medical treatment for heartworms, broken bones, mange, Parvo, Distemper, etc. and necessities such as crates, leashes, collars, microchips, and much more.

Pug Rescue Of San Diego County spends an average of $500 per animal ($1000 for senior pugs) and often in the thousands for serious cases. Our expenditures so far this year have been staggering. We recently took in a little boy named Tobin as a stray, he went through a plethora of exams and x-rays and ultimately ended up with Femoral Head Ostomy which removed the ball at the top of the femur. This whole process and procedure and care for Tobin will total over $2000. We took in this dog without hesitation, knowing that we could give him a 2nd chance. That's what we do. We specialize in 2nd chances. We do not discriminate based on age, or health of the animal. We assume full responsibility for all the animals we rescue and make every effort to ensure they are healthy and happy and placed into safe and loving forever homes. We and our volunteers provide the time and devotion to the cause, however we desperately need your help to provide the financial resources required to accomplish this.

What Your Donation Pays For (for one dog):

  • $20 - flea, tick and heartworm protection for a month
  • $25 - a new leash, collar and tags
  • $50 - microchip or a crate
  • $100 - one set of vaccines
  • $250 - spay or neuter
  • $1000 - medical treatment for mild to moderate cases
  • $2500 - medical treatment for moderate to severe cases
  • $5000 - medical treatment for severe cases

This is just a few examples of our expenses. Your donation has a huge impact on what we do. Your generous support allows Pug Rescue Of San Diego County to save more pugs.

If you make a donation and would like a shout out for it we would love to feature you and your furry loved ones on our social media! Send a picture to Marketing@pugsandiego.com and choose between Facebook and Instagram! We Thank You from the bottom of our heart!
