It is the goal and intent of Pug Rescue to adopt every dog received into a new, permanent home as soon as possible.

Come join us for our Annual May Party!

Pug Rescue will hold its 27th Annual Pug Party on Saturday, May 5th, from 10 AM to 3 PM, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, Infield Pavilion area.

The theme this year is once again, Pugo de Mayo, in recognition of the fact that our event happens to take place on May 5th.

We will have fun costume contests, with prizes awarded for Pugs in the most creative theme costumes. Other contests include, Most Distinguished Senior Pug, Wet T-shirt and The Cupcake Chomp! Prizes awarded in all contests.

There will also be Vet Techs on hand to provide answers to basic questions regarding your Pug. Party up your Pug with nail clipping and nail and tail painting! There will be vendors, a great raffle table with many baskets containing lots of super items, adoption information booth, membership booth where you can conveniently renew or sign up, our Unique Pug Boutique with over 100 Pug gift and memorabilia items for yourself or another Pug lover, and lots of other fun stuff.

Food and drink will also be available for purchase.

In this article you will find a link to the waiver that Del Mar requires us to sign and provide every year. You may go to the link, download the form, and complete the waiver ahead of time and bring it to the party. That will make for a shorter wait at the gate.


Adults - $10.00 Children (10 years and under) - $5.00

Parking info: Del Mar charges for parking.

Park in the west lot – that will be closest. That lot is located at the western end of the grandstand. However, you may also park in the lot off Jimmy Durante Blvd. if you prefer. A FREE tram will pick you up from either lot ~ just tell the driver you want to go to the Pug Rescue event, in the Infield Pavilion. The tram will take you through the tunnel at the west end of the grandstand and deliver you right to our location. They will also return you to the parking lots after the event. Of course, your Pug(s) will also be allowed on the trams.

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
