New South West Area for PDWRA

Our new South West Area is now up and running, covering the counties of Avon, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.  We welcome Jane, Maureen and all the other volunteers to our rehoming team.  Please see our Surrendering Your Pug page for our new Area map giving details of the counties in each of our 9 Areas, and for contact telephone numbers should you need or wish to surrender your pug.

Can you help PDWRA?

2017 has been the busiest year for PDWRA Trustees and volunteers to date.  As of today we have had 137 pugs through our rehoming system.

 The sad reality is that many of the pugs surrendered to PDWRA require veterinary care to treat one or often multiple conditions.

Winston’s fundraiser

Karen and her family sadly lost their beautiful black pug Winston to liver cancer on 28 December 2016.   In his memory they held a fundraiser on Good Friday, and donated £75.00 to PDWRA to help us continue our work in Winston’s name.   They had a raffle, a buffet and the children each presented a speech to the guests.  A montage of the afternoon and a copy of the children’s speeches are pictured below.  Tilly aged 11 wrote the top one and Alfie aged 12 wrote the bottom one.

PDWRA pugs and volunteers at Crufts!

Here are some of us beside the Kennel Club Find a Rescue Dog stand at Crufts on Friday 10 March.  With a wonderful team of helpers + pugs busily promoting the work of PDWRA throughout the day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and a really great day was had!
