😊 AmazonSmile Charity Support 😊

Just received by our Treasurer:

“This email is to notify you that Amazon has donated £73.81 to your
organisation (The Pug Dog Welfare & Rescue Association) as a result of
AmazonSmile programme activity between 1 October and 31 December, 2018.

The amount also includes the donation generated by the offering of an
additional 4.5% in donations on qualifying purchases during the
AmazonSmile bonus donation period from 29 October to 2 November, 2018.”

Excellent news, and we are of course delighted!

🐾 Thank you to West Yorkshire Pugs 🐾

An amazing £405 raised from West Yorkshire Pugs Fun Day last weekend!

Thank you so much, especially to everyone who contributed, organised and executed events on the day itself; Lisa Butland (and family), Jackie Ward, Alison Mount, Andrea Slater and Maureen Watson (for so many generous Tombola/Raffle donations).


Do you have a Pets At Home VIP card?

Did you know you can help PDWRA if you shop at Pets At Home and have a VIP Card?

All you need to do is go to “Your Profile” – look for Lifelines – and type in “HUNTINGDON” store, and then Pug Dog Welfare & Rescue Association will come up as one of the Charities to choose.

Or follow the instructions if you have the app in the picture – it’s that easy!

The points convert to money for PDWRA to purchase essentials for our surrendered dogs – we have been asked to find new homes for 42 pugs this month.

⭐ A star for Reuben ⭐

Reuben and Ralphie, 5 year old litter brothers, came into rescue in December 2015.  After almost 3 extremely happy years with their adopters Vivien and Becki, Reuben’s health issues became too severe, and he died in October 2018.

Ralphie misses his brother, but is settling down in his role as an only pug.

Just before Christmas, Vivien sent us this heartwarming update:

“We all miss the beautiful Reuben.  A friend bought us a very unusual present; she has had a star in the Orion constellation named after him, so we have a certificate and a map of the constellation showing where he is. We were very touched by that.”

We think this is the first time a star has been named in honour of a PDWRA pug.  Reuben is the pug on the left in this earlier photo of the boys.

⭐ Shine brightly, Reuben. ⭐
