Barons Markets Backroom Beer Pairings

Summer weather and backyard bashes go together like San Diego and a cold, craft beer. Showcase the tastes of summer at Barons Markets Backroom Beer Pairing, featuring Inland Empire's Ironfire Brewing on June 22.

Craft beer selections will include:
The Nuhell India Pale Lager - to welcome guests
The Devil Within Double IPA - citrus and stone fruit flavor - paired with summer watermelon feta salad with arugula
51/50 IPA - a classic San Diego-style IPA - paired with chicken satay skewers
Vicious Disposition Imperial Porter - big and bold, brewed with locally harvested avocado honey - paired with beef and brie sliders
6 Killer Stout - brewed with 100 percent Arabica hazelnut coffee - made into a "boozie" ice cream float!

For a deliciously refreshing start to summer, head to one of Barons Markets San Diego or Inland Empire locations from 6 - 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22.

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 and choose between Facebook and Instagram! We Thank You from the bottom of our heart! 

Ultimately we want you to know whether you donate after reading this, or if you are unable to donate and you simply share our cause, we appreciate YOU! We appreciate your support for our rescue, our mission and our goals. Without our amazing network of support and care we would not be where we are today! THANK YOU!
