Pride Parade is Coming!

The date of the Pride Parade this year is Saturday, July 14th. If you are interested in either marching in Pug Rescues Stroller Brigade, OR riding on our float, now is the time to contact us.

This is one of the largest parades in the region, and draws approximately 200,000 spectators along its 1.5 mile route. It is a great opportunity for Pug Rescue to let people know we are here, and the spectators LOVE the Pugs in their strollers! Pug Rescue has some loaner strollers available if you would like to participate but do not have a stroller of your own.

If you would like to be a part of this fun event and help us spread the word about the organization, contact Barbara at e-mail:

The Pug Video Of The Week!!!!! 

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.

It has been a busy week for us at Pug Rescue. We have taken in 7 dogs this week including this sweetie Lola. Lola's owners were selling her on CL for $50.00!!!! Luckily we were able to get her and bring her into rescue before another breeder got her. Lola will be seen by our vets and when her body is ready spayed and then on to a new home. We are in desperate need of funds to continue this work of ours. Please contribute if you can, no amount is too small. Visit our website at Thank you and Happy Holidays.

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
