Report from Lisa, PDWRA Rehoming Co-ordinator for Yorkshire:
We smashed it – £1,504.56 !!
Working in partnership with DIGs Student Accommodation, we hosted our first Christmas Pug Party at Storthes Hall Park, West Yorkshire. It was a resounding success.
Emma and Lisa, and the DIGs staff and students were amazing, nothing was too much trouble, and they ran a pug creche providing lots of cuddles and did numerous woodlands walks with the pugs.
A PDWRA forever home made the journey from the East coast to reunite their PDWRA pug with their former foster family; we hadn’t told them, so it was a big surprise – and there were tears!
and now to the Thank You(s) –
Oh my goodness, there are so many, I hope I don’t miss any:
