How healthy is your pug?

How healthy is your pug? This chart was produced by the BOAS team at Cambridge University showing the Body Condition Scoring in pugs. There are often questions about the weight of our pugs and this chart provides a visual aid of the shape of a pug from too thin right through to obese. I am sure we all recognise that too much weight and too little exercise adversely affects the health of our pugs. Please carefully look at your pug from every angle – be honest – does your pug need to lose a kilo or more? YOU are the person to help your pug to better health and a longer and healthier lifestyle.

Saving your used stamps raises vital funds for PDWRA

Our last payment from Stamps For Charity in Norfolk (see poster below for address to send your stamps to) was an amazing £351.76!  This is the largest payment we have ever received in respect of used stamps, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has supported our Charity in this way.

Now that Christmas is coming – why not ask your family and friends to save their stamps too?

Thank you Lorraine!

Huge thanks to Lorraine Callaghan who raised an extraordinary amount of £5,030 over just 12 weeks!

Lorraine did several weekly challenges, each one was for 7 days, and everything cost £7.

Challenges included: ironing, hair cuts and blow dries, washing cars, and walking 7 miles a day for 7 days!

As if that wasn’t enough, Lorraine then held events like a silent auction night, selling goods (Halloween and Baby Pugs – of the stuffed variety), raffles, a pamper day with afternoon tea, facials and pedicures!

Lorraine also has her own grumble of 5 pugs, aged between 4 and 13, one of which is a rescue.

What an inspiration all our supporters are – thank you from all the pugs in need.

PDWRA at Discover Dogs, Excel 2018

Some of the PDWRA team at Discover Dogs yesterday –

and they’re back again today!

Huge thanks to all our volunteers and helpers (and their pugs) who have given up their weekend to promote our Charity.

We couldn’t do what we do, without you.

There are more than 280 pugs on the Rehoming Register already in 2018.

Thank you!

On behalf of all of us at PDWRA, an enormous thank you to everyone who took part in our very special 45th anniversary walks and events.  The response has been amazing.

This is a fantastic amount and will go towards helping many pugs in need!
